Aaron Rodgers is the Green Bay Packers franchise quarterback and he has taken the passing game to all new levels for the organization. Rodgers has helped the Green Bay passing attack turn into a record breaking unit but the entire offense as a whole continues to lack a well-rounded quality.

The Packers running game has not been holding up their end of the bargain and continues to let the offense down as the season goes on.

Rodgers said on his weekly radio show on WAUK-AM that the team’s running game needs to improve.

“Quantity is important – we want to have a certain amount of runs every game to keep them honest,” Rodgers said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “But I have to say the quality of them has not been anywhere where we’d like them. . . . We’ve got to run the ball better.”

The Packers have been linked to trade rumors involving St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson and Carolina Panthers rusher DeAngelo Williams but neither trade seems likely before Thursday’s deadline.

Instead, the Packers plan to stick with Alex Green as their starting running back.

Hopefully for Rodgers and the Packers passing attack, Green will continue to improve and give the Green Bay offense a formidable, well-rounded offense.
