4. Run the ball
If you ask most people outside of the Packers’ organization about their run game, they might say it will be one of Green Bay’s biggest weaknesses heading into the 2018 season. Unfortunately, that’s a lazy assessment of the position group.

Sure, they don’t have one running back who can do it all. Instead, they have three guys who each have their specialty and are capable of having success when put in the right positions to succeed.
Jamaal Williams is a bruiser who can fight for those tough yards in short-yardage situations. Ty Montgomery is a great pass-catching back and is extremely versatile. He can also use his speed to get outside on the corner. Aaron Jones (who’s suspended for the first two games) is a little mix of both. He’s the most natural runner of the group and might have the most potential.
If the Packers can get the most out of this trio, it could keep defenses on their heels and force them to respect the run. With Rodgers behind center, you know they will consistently see seven-man boxes which allow them all the space they need to run the ball.
