Running back Eddie Lacy made his grand return to Green Bay as a member of the Seattle Seahawks. Things did not go well.
Lacy gained just three yards on a measly five carries. The bulk of the team’s carries went to rookie Chris Carson (six). C.J. Prosise got four.
This week, things have gotten worse for Lacy. The guy we expected would split carries with Lacy — Thomas Rawls — has returned to the lineup.
Lacy is not splitting carries with him. In fact, Lacy was a healthy inactive for Seattle.
That says a lot.
The Seahawks obviously like Rawls and Carson. Hell, they appear to even like the totally average Prosise better than Lacy.
Based upon what we’re currently seeing, I wouldn’t doubt Lacy ends up being released during the season. That’s a mighty tumble from being rookie of the year and Pro Bowler with the Packers back in 2013.
If someone gets injured, Lacy could be back here for cheap. More likely he’ll be out of the league by next season though.
The Bears are getting crushed by Tampa. So, the argument that they almost beat the Falcons because the Bears are better than we thought seems incorrect.
One game does not make a season. I learned a valuable lesson very quickly years ago while wagering on football, but it takes discipline, which not many gamblers possess. You let 3 or 4 weeks go by to get a pulse of the team’s before you start betting.
Remember when Lacy was getting 50k bonuses for reaching weight goals? It was like they were crowning him King….lol.
Now a healthy scratch. Something McCarthy should have done multiple times to try to get Lacy to take his career seriously.
I’ve posted many times, about ex Packer players who were trying to help Lacy, saying his career won’t last if he didn’t start taking care of his body.
I’ve rooted for Lacy to turn it around, he’s talented, but deep inside he’s still a child.
Lacy lost his moxie. Not everyone has what it takes to keep it.
