In No Rush: Packers Fail to Register First Down Running
Dec. 9, 1990 – The Packers were never a running team under coach Lindy Infante, but even he had to expect more than what resulted in a 20-14 loss to the Seahawks. Against Seattle, the Packers end up with 13 yards on 10 carries and no first down rushing. “If you really look at it, we aren’t a rushing team,” tackle Tony Mandarich says. “We’re not the Giants. You’ll have days like that. It could’ve been negative yards. You gotta look at it that way.” After picking up zero yards in the first half, Green Bay runs but three times on 39 second-half plays. Despite no run support, backup quarterback Blair Kiel leads a fourth-quarter rally (he drops back to pass 30 times in the period) and has his team at the Seattle 8-yard line before firing an interception.
