Green hits century mark
Monday, December 4, 2006
The biggest positive for the Packers' offense was the play of Ahman Green. After being a non-factor the last three games, Green rushed 14 times for 102 yards, the fifth time this season he's gone over the century mark.
"I'm very pleased with (Green)," McCarthy said. "He's clearly part of the solution here, and the man just needs more opportunities."
As the Packers tried to erase the big deficit, the offense focused more on Favre throwing rather than Green running.
"We thought we could run the ball on these guys, and we did," Packers offensive coordinator Jeff Jagodzinski said. "We just got to a point where it got a little lopsided and we had to go in a different direction."
Tight end Bubba Franks said Green's performance was uplifting.
"The running game plan was perfect. We should have run it more," Franks said. "We're all cheering for (Green) this year. It was great to see him do well out there."
