Packers running read option for Rodgers

As an Alaskan attending grad school in Wisconsin, the Seahawks and the Packers are my teams. Accordingly, I follow this site and AcmePackingCompany.com. This is something I just posted over there, and thought it might be interesting to you all, too.

The Packers ran a few read-option plays in their last game against the Rams. This one went for 33 yards to TE Jermichael Finley:

Rodgers reads the OLB, who plays the run:

Finley is wide open for a big gain. The line is run-blocking and has opened a hole, but the RT is getting beat:

A cool example of how the read-option is evolving to fit in the NFL.
