Last year Packers running back Eddie Lacy started his rookie season slowly but finished as one of the best backs in football. This year, the Packers think he can be the best back in football. Packers running backs coach Sam Gash says there's no question that Lacy can lead the league in rushing, and Gash...


Place your bets, gentlemen.

Well, I think he could. But things would have to fall in place for that to happen.
And losing anymore o-linemen would pretty much kill that idea.

Who the hell wants Eddie to lead the league in rushing? We have a three headed monster at rb, use them all and save on all their bodies.

We have a three headed monster but Mike doesn't like to use it. I think most of us would like to see it but I'm guessing the carries will be skewed more toward Lacy than most of us would care to see. Starks and Harris will get their chances but I bet Lacy still averages over 20 touches per game


Still, like Gillgan says I think he can but I don't think he will. We don't rely on him as much as some other teams rely on their studs running backs. My early money is on Charles with Peterson a close second. Forte is possible but the Bears are like the Packers in that they pass too much and McCoy may lead in total yards but he will get a lot more yards receiving.

Mike and Aaron will be stat whoring too much to focus on the run game. Burns too much clock, doesn't let them take as many shots deep.

Kind of excited to see what DuJuan Harris brings on screens though, if they ever choose to run any. Dude is fast, shifty and explosive.

I don't bet.

I just know two things. Aaron Rodgers is a great quarterback and Eddie Lacy is a great running back. They are both capable of great things. Who cares about numbers or stats. Just win. And I think they will.

That doesn't make any sense. Over the last 2 years at least Mike has run the ball a lot. Also running is a big part of how they set up their deep passes, which obviously works considering they've been one of the most efficient deep ball teams for years. The play action rollout deep shot is one of the most effective plays we run. Throwing it deep isn't "stat whoring" if it works, it's "winning".

I do... but because I want Lacy to average 13 yards a carry. Just like I want Rodgers to lead the league in passing from averaging 27 yards a throw. Neither will happen.

With the stable of backs we have, I would like to see us top 5 in team rushing and pushing for the league lead in yards per attempt. That could conceivably happen. We were 7th and 4th last year respectively.

Did you watch the game from last Thursday?

1st drive, 7 plays 80+ yards, 3:06, 1 pass - 6 runs.

I guess Lacy should have laid down a couple of times instead of rolling over the defense so The Packers could take more time off the clock.

Or maybe Rodgers(the tight end), should have just caught the ball on the one pass attempt and just fell down after he got the 1st down yardage.

BTW short pass over the middle he broke for 32 yds.

Another year of this stat-whoring bullshit, I guess it never gets old for some.
