Like RDR said, if Leach is on the field, it means that the Ravens will be in 20, 21, or 22 personnel and we won't be in our dime package unless it's 3rd and 22 or something like that.
Dom Capers also runs a 34 defense.
When we spread the field with our own 11 or 12 personnel, the Packers would also be in their nickel or dime package, unless it was 3rd and inches or something like that.
When we run our own no huddle and start with our 11 personnel, other teams would "get stuck" with whatever personnel they have on the D at the time.
It's quite normal in the NFL.
You've just got to be able to defend with whatever personnel you have.
Don't forget that last year, we held the Saints to 17 points into the 4th quarter.
When Mario went out, our pass rush went south (as Reed didn't have many reps up to that point).
This year, the Broncos wouldn't have score that many points on us if we didn't drop so many INTs.
Both ran quite a bit of spread and no huddle.
The Packers RBs averaged 2.83 ypc on 29 carries.
Only the Dolphis gained fewer yards on the ground against us.
I don't get the concern about the opponent running against our dime package.
