I guess I should have phrased it differently: They don't run the ball well when they do run it, and as a result, they pass more than they probably should.
The new RBs will help, I just don't know how much they will help. I was actually glad to see that Green Bay didn't invest a ton of effort into their O-Line which I think is the larger problem.
