Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy hasn’t gotten off to a spectacular start this season. Frankly, that’s fine with us because Lacy has never once in his career gotten off to a spectacular start and then he ends up mashing motherfuckers down the home stretch.
But some people aren’t happy with Lacy’s early lack of production. Some people keep suggesting that Lacy’s lack of production is because he’s fat.
Is Eddie Lacy fat?
Don’t know. Don’t give a flyin’ fuck.
Eddie Lacy ALWAYS starts slow. Sorry if he’s ruining your shitty fantasy team.
People are hell bent on figuring out what’s “wrong” with Lacy this year, though. So they ask him stuff like, “Ed, what’s the deal?!”
Ed knows some people think he’s fat and Ed says that isn’t the reason he isn’t tearing it up. He says there’s another reason and you’ll never guess what it is.
Ready for this?
“Watching film, I noticed I would take a hit and I would break the tackle, but I would break it sideways, which allows other people to come tackle me vs. in years past my pads would be low, so when I take the hit, I’m still moving forward,” Lacy said. “It’s just getting my pads down and getting back to basics.”
Know what he identified there?
I’ll give you a hint — it’s Mike McCarthy’s No. 1 reason for any failure of the Green Bay Packers.
As Big Mike would say, “Gotta correct that pad level.”
And now that Ed knows his pad level is not correct, he will surely go out and run for 150 yards every week.
