When the Packers used the 61st overall selection on Eddie Lacy, I was not thrilled or even excited that I can remember. I thought he was another project of the Alabama offensive line, much like I feel that both Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson are. Then the Packers used the 125th overall selection on Johnathan Franklin. I was sure Franklin would be the more productive back for the Packers both receiving and rushing.

I was ... not right.

All Eddie Lacy has done during his rookie season is carried the ball 248 times for 1,028 yards (4.1 yards per carry) while rushing for 8 touchdowns. He's not that bad out of the backfield either with 31 receptions for 236 yards receiving.

That's 1,266 total offensive yards and keep in mind he missed the Bengals game and played only one play during the Redskins game. Essentially, he's giving the Packers 100 total yards on offense each game and almost a touchdown per contest.

The only weakness in Lacy's game is his blitz pickup pass protection and that is something he will certainly improve on.

Thank you, Eddie.

Eddie Lacy ... bad selection. He had HUGE holes with Alabama. He won't have that in Green Bay. I'd rather have seen a Safety selected. Someone who could contribute to the team.

Yes, a remarkable player who literally fell in our laps. I was thrilled when Ted picked him, and he could very well be the best RB we have ever drafted. He is 77 yds away from John Brockington's all-time rookie rushing total in Packers history, going over 1000 yds rushing with 2 weeks left to play… Remarkable.

No Zero you were not thrilled by any stretch of the imagination. I was pleased with the selection. Franklin too.

Yesterday's performance is setting Lacy up pretty good for ROY. He has separated himself from the rest of the rookies. Ram's rb Stacy is over 150 yards behind him with less tds and their avg per carry is about the same. The best Wr is SD's Allen but he doesn't stack up wither in total yards or tds.

Another underrated aspect of his game is the ability to raise an atmosphere.

Emmitt Smith would get four/five yards consistently, but it was ugly, falling forward on the strength of that offensive line.

With Lacy, when he pushes and wills himself forward or lays the lumber, it raises everybody's spirit. The runs look painful if there is a recipient of contact. I LOVE watching Lacy run, and hope that we properly manage his workload as he can be the most important player in ensuring our offense can drop points on anybody.

My biggest knock on Lacy was his running style teamed with longevity/durability at this level.. so far, I am glad to be incorrect.

Guy runs like a bull in a china shop with a large limit on the credit card.

It's only his first year. We'll get 5-8 years out of him, tops, with his running style. He's a beast, but it's coming at a price to himself both career-wise and for his physical health.

The only real knock on him (that I see) is the lack of speed running down the open field. He can't outrun the secondary on long runs, but that's ok. This guy can break through and make a 1 yard run into a 7 yard gain. It's awesome.
