Drawing conclusions from preseason numbers is a fool's game. Let's keep that in mind.
"Obviously, looking at the stats, we definitely took a step back today," guard T.J. Lang told the Green Bay Press-Gazette. "A couple penalties negated some good runs. That's obviously something we take a lot of pride in -- moving the ball on the ground -- and we just didn't get it done tonight. We're going to have to do better."
During games that matter, all-universe quarterback Aaron Rodgers won't be pulled after a single drive. That should help matters. Against Seattle, with game-manager supreme Graham Harrell driving the spaceship, Seahawks defenders paid little attention to the passing game and zeroed in on Lacy and Co.
That's one reason we shouldn't read too deeply into a mostly meaningless tilt in the final days of August. We still expect Lacy to make a tangible impact on the Pack's attack in 2013.
