GREEN BAY, Wis. -- During a drill early in a training camp practice this week, Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy was running routes against inside linebackers and safeties.

He popped free and caught a pass over the middle.

To hear coach Mike McCarthy tell it, at the end of the play Lacy turned to his coach and said: "Man, I did this drill all last year and never got open."

So when people ask what Lacy can do to follow up his first NFL season — when he rushed for 1,178 yards, won offensive rookie of the year honors and was the best thing that's happened to the Packers' running game since Ryan Grant of 2007-08 — the answer might be found in that kind of detail.


Quote:
Lacy caught 35 passes for 257 yards (a 7.3-yard average) last season, the most by a Packers running back since Tony Fisher had 48 catches for 347 yards in the 4-12 season of 2005. The last Packers back to reach 50 receptions was Ahman Green in 2003, when he had the exact same average as Lacy did last season.


Would have put money on Jackson in 2010 having the best season receiving for a RB in the past ten years but what do ya know. Hopefully stability and health will lead to more consistency in this area. Looking forward to what Harris can bring because he might have the biggest effect of our RB in terms of pass catching.

Im not sold on harris and actually I believe he will be a 'putz' - I dont see a short little dude doing that well. I bet starks puts up better numbers then harris this year.
as long as both are healthy cough cough
