Eddie Lacy Has Been Hitting the Buffet

Eddie Lacy

There have been questions about Eddie Lacy’s dedication to football. Now there are probably more. This is Eddie Lacy at Green Bay Packers training camp. Big, fat, round Eddie Lacy.

Is it possible that’s just a bad camera angle? Or maybe the photo was somehow distorted in editing? Or maybe Lacy has just been sitting around and eating for the last month?

Lacy was in shape during OTAs and minicamp, but those activities were held just after the draft, so he didn’t have time to become out of shape. There’s a month between minicamp and the start of training camp. That’s plenty of time to get fat if you’re really trying.

We haven’t exactly heard much about Lacy since training camp opened, either. We’ve heard how good Johnathan Franklin looked on Sunday. We heard Alex Green and James Starks alternated the first two days of camp with the No. 1 offense.

We’ve not heard peep about Lacy. Maybe that’s because he’s off doing conditioning drills.

The Packers aren’t in the habit of publicly saying who showed up to camp out of shape, so we’re leaving it to you. Get down there and tell us — is Lacy doing his best Charles Barkley impersonation?

    This isn’t surprising to me. I never liked the kid coming out of Alabama. I felt he was a product of his NFL-caliber offensive line he ran behind. So with that said, I think it was a brilliant move by TT to sort of get an “insurance policy” by drafting Franklin as well (who I think is a far better RB anyway). I see Franklin becoming an explosive playmaker for the Packers while Lacy gets cast into the shadows of maybe like a goal line or 3rd and short back.

    A quick 30 second google of “Eddy Lacy Fat” will answer all of these questions. Bad angle, dude is maybe a few lbs heavier but not a lardass.

    LOL. Where did all the love for Eddie go? He hasn’t even started a single NFL game and already everyone is jumping on the “I never liked that pick” bandwagon.

    That’s gold, Jerry! GOLD!!

    Lacy is what the packers need.. Yes you can say he had a stellar O-line at Bama, but his ability to get the yac is whats gonna help the pack on those 3rd and short situations.

    Easiest eay to separate the casual fan from the true one – mainstream media. Clowns like “Jack MeHauff” and “Buster Bluth” read Cosmopolitan online and it mentions something about a football player looking fat and they take to the blogs to gossip about another man’s breadbox. The informed, dedicated, & unconditionally loving Packer fan can harken back to the hours of time spent on youtube looking at his college, combine, and O.T.A. highlights, as well as pictures as recent as yesterday that would force him to reconsider the drivel spewn and perpetrated by these “Packer Impostors”. Oh yeah, apparently, he scored everytime he was around the goal line in camp today. GO PACK GO.

    P.S. – This partially goes for you, too, Monty. Although you’re dating the Steelers on the side, I expect better Packer reporting. Training camp is here; let’s pick it up.

    You always want your starting RB to beef-up in today’s NFL.
    Dish & take more…

    It’s girlfriends that you want to stay trim…

    I’m so glad the Packers picked Jones in the 1st round of the draft. They really had to take a shot at Lacy when he fell that deep to them in the 2nd. I really hope I’m wrong, but I think Lacy is gonna be a bust. Either he’ll be hurt or offer little to the Packers this season. Seems like his goal was make it to the NFL and get a contract, buy the parents a new home. Just doesnt appear motivated to do anything more now that’s he’s here. Unless he just all of a sudden looks like a stud in the pre-season games, I can’t see us getting any real production from him this year. Again, I hope I’m wrong.

    NOOOO!!!!! Monty, don’t fall for the deceptive, bad angle twitter pic, brah. Oh well.

    Just in time, Eddie Lacy was a stud in practice today. Even brought out the circle button once.
