Worst case scenario, we move him to guard.  He can't be any worse than the guys we trotted out there last year.

Packers fan here. Loved Eddie when he was on his game. He invigorated the fan base with his big body spin moves and locomotive running. Unfortunately, he couldn't keep up his part of the bargain.

Personally, I think it's all weed munchies. His buddy got dumped from the packers a couple years ago for being a bad influence. He was also arrested for possession. I'm guessing they were smoking out and feasting too much and Eddie just packed on the pounds.

He's definitely a formidable force when he is on form, but for the majority in Green Bay, he wasn't on form.

I have read that the Seahawks have a formidable conditioning coach and program. If so, and Lacy gets it under control, he's gonna tear it up. Those first two years he was a force of nature. It's only a one year contract so, personally, I think it was a smart move. And he is not old...just 4 years in the league so, again, if he can turn it around, the Pack may live to regret this.

You're forgetting the Seahawks offensive line is.....well......offensive.

Was Green Bay's o-line good at run-blocking? I thought they were more pass-friendly.

Get Rich or Try Dyin': Was Green Bay's o-line good at run-blocking? I thought they were more pass-friendly.


The GB O-line has almost no run-blocking skill. In fact, the few times they ever pulled it off the crowd screamed like "OMG IT's HAPPENING! IT'S HAPPENING". Lacy's strength with GB was always that he didn't NEED an O-line or FB setting a lane... he just went. Or he would check a pass rusher, get the ball dumped to him and grab 10+ yards.

Despite me loving watching him go CHOO CHOO with 5 guys trying to bring him down, my favorite plays with him were:

1. Block dude.
2. Show Rodger's he's open.
3. Catch ball.
4. Run.

It just pissed of defenses to no end that he was versatile like that. And then he had cake.

Football Outsiders has GB's run-blocking at 19th, Seattle at 26. So Green Bay is around average but better than Seattle.

Yep. Excellent pass blocking but meh run.

The problem was, even in run blocking sets, you could tell what was coming. Defenses could key on it and act accordingly.

Lacy has decently light feet for his size, and good power. He's got a high center of gravity though, so if you tackle him right he isn't hard to take down. He walked in free agency for a reason

Got the perfect food for him too:

He's there to protect Dangeruss because lord knows the front line won't.

I heard about those.  Also, a local brewery occasionally makes a Skittle IPA...their first release was the day before Super Bowl 48.

/Doesn't taste as weird as you would think.

Good luck with him. Weight issues and prone to injuries.
He seemed like a good dude, so I hope it works out for him.

Is it really that hard to not eat yourself fat when you're a professional athlete? I imagine teams have tons of trainers who can give you a meal plan. Just stick to that shiat. For millions I'd eat nothing but egg whites and kale.

I was thinking about this yesterday, and John Clayton mentioned it on our local ESPN Radio station this morning:

The Seahawks have an incredible support staff...nutritionists, chefs, etc.  Since he needs to lose weight, he picked the perfect team with that kind of support system.

What better way to solve the "our RBs keep getting injured" problem than by getting another RB with conditioning and injury issues.

I'm a Packers fan and loved Lacy for the first couple of years. But lately I swear he was avoiding contact, running out of bounds rather than running over smaller corner backs. If I'm right, then I'm glad he's gone.We'll find out this fall.

Nice low-risk move with upside. It bears mentioning that His Beastness also arrived in Seattle after impressing in his first couple of years, then falling out of favor, with a team in a frozen wasteland.

OK, I'm just going to say that in a thread about a fat guy and Marshawn Lynch, you have the most appropriate Fark handle possible.

"His Beastness" had some semblance of an offensive line.  Look at what has been done in Denver over the years, bringing in undrafted guys that nobody has ever heard of and many did well.

Lacy is going to suffer, forcing predictable passing situations and Seahawk "fans" are going to once again call for firing Darrell Bevell as the solution.

You're missing the entire point of Marshawn Lynch. He was the master of yards after contact and the numbers bear this out. His offensive lines sucked for much of his time in Seattle. He was the perfect guy to have on the team in that situation (along with a mobile quarterback). Lacy, while probably not as good, similarly profiles as a YAC guy.

Also, funny thing about football players: rookies tend to get better as second-year players, and second-year players tend to get better as third-year players. Since the senior member of the offensive line was third-year pro Justin Britt (who, I add, had a breakout year in his third season in the Cable system), there's every reason to think the line will be better in 2017. Actually, there's every reason to think the offensive line was better when the ideal lineup was active than you thought it was. And they're discarding the weakest link from last year's line, Garry Gilliam, and adding the mediocre-but-not-a-dumpster-fire Luke Joeckel, in his place.

I recommend a little more O2 to clear up that thinking.

Rumor has it that he's been doing the Beach Body container eating plan and workouts since the season ended.  One of the their trainers posted about it on FB a couple weeks back.  Wish him all the best.

That was also the rumor before this past season started. He got hurt before we could see if it helped.
