. McCarthy put assistant Tom Clements in charge during the offseason but was dissatisfied with the offense of late. In Sunday's 28-7 win over Dallas, the Packers ran the ball 44 times for 230 yards.
"The decision was made because I feel as a leader of this football team, I had to make sure I maximize all the opportunities and resources and give our team a chance to win," McCarthy said after his offense came to life in a 28-7 victory over Dallas Sunday. "Personally, it didn't feel very good. It didn't feel good at all.
"That's the challenge with these types of decisions. But professionally, it was what I felt I needed to do."
"When you can be efficient running the football and set up some manageable situations you have some more opportunities to have some clean pockets," Rodgers said. "We ran some passes from under center, which we hadn't done in a while. All of that kind of starts with the run game."
