GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Is it safe to say the Green Bay Packers have finally found their running back?

The last three games suggest as much.

Rookie second-round draft pick Eddie Lacy leads the NFL with 301 rushing yards in the last three weeks, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Kansas City's Jamaal Charles, with 272 yards rushing in that same stretch, ranks second.

Perhaps a greater indication is how opposing defenses have reacted to Lacy.

Three weeks ago, running backs coach Alex Van Pelt admitted the Packers had not seen defenders stacking the box to stop the Packers' running game even though at that point the Packers ranked ninth in rushing yards per game and second in yards per carry.


Quote:
Slowly but surely, that has begun to change. In the last three games, defenses have loaded the box with seven or more on 28.3 percent of their snaps, including 28.7 percent of the snaps in Sunday's 31-13 win over the Cleveland Browns, who regularly brought one of their safeties down to the line of scrimmage.

Finally, the Packers have found a way to stop opponents from playing exclusively Cover-2 defense.

This is what real RBs look like.

They make the Oline look much better.

Thinking about it makes me realize how lucky GB was to land Lacy. I'm not sure if it was his injury history, Ingram and Richardson's performance up to that point or people thinking he was a product of Bama's o-line but it seems like GB found gold in Lacy (similar to how Rodgers turned out as a Tedford QB). And then look at the teams that passed him the second round who drafted a back. Can you imagine the Broncos with Lacy right now? Or the Bengals facing 8 in the box with AJ Green?

Lacy has added a great dynamic to the team. I'm glad we finally have a running back who can get it done. Franklin doesn't look so bad either in the limited amount we've seen him.

I knew lacy was going to be a good pick when we got him ...

glad it is working out that way and Mike McCarthy is sticking with him. Glad harris has been out and we have got the chance to use lacy more ...

I know alot of you guys were/are high on harris but honestly could he have done the same so far?

I love Lacy.

But Franklin is really gonna light it up too. Just needs to hang onto the ball.

Looks like UCLA colors (DL Jones and RB Franklin were just drafted from there),

quick look up Jones was #53 and Franklin was #23.

So Franklin
