Eddie Lacy is Going to the Pro Bowl

Eddie Lacy

The Green Bay Packers had zero guys make the Pro Bowl roster initially. They now have one guy who will play in the game — running back Eddie Lacy.

Lacy was a first alternate and when Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson dropped out because of injury, Lacy got the call.

Lacy ran for 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns as a rookie in 2013. He’ll join Philadelphia’s LeSean McCoy, Chicago’s Matt Forte, Seattle’s Marshawn Lynch, San Francisco’s Frank Gore and Kansas City’s Jamaal Charles in the Pro Bowl running back mix.

Either Lynch or Gore will be dropping out of that mix, since one of them will be playing in the Super Bowl.

This year, the Pro Bowl squads are being chosen by team captains Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders in a draft-style format. There are no more AFC and NFC squads, just a pool of supposedly the best players in the league.

    Typical Packer luck will be our only Pro-Bowler will get a carry in the leagues most insignificant game, Tear his knee in 4 places, be diagnosed with some kinda thigh injury or something & miss the whole 2014 season.

    Just watch. & to make matters worse, Deion “the pee-on” will probably draft him & he’ll have 20 carries…

      We were all thinking it, but dammit! Tyko you had to say it.

      Now, during the next full moon you have to head up to the nearest mountain, go 500 feet beyond the treeline, build a pentagram out of metamorphic rock, and chant the matra “Reverse the curse” backwards while backpedaling counterclockwise around the outside of the pentagram 27 times exactly, all while burning a piece of Eddy Lacy Packers
      memorabilia-it’s the only proven method to break a
      broadcaster’s curse.
