Is Eddie Lacy Green Bay's solution in the backfield?
With the running back position basically being a revolving door for this team. Its actually refreshing to see them strike gold on Lacy. Especially when his other Alabama counterparts haven't shared the same type of production. Lacy will always be compared to Mark Ingram (Saints) and Trent Richardson (Colts) because of the Alabama roots.
Looking at him compared to the others, it looks like he has a step ahead of each.
Lacy rookie numbers...
197 attempts 806 yards 6 TDS (season still in progress)
Richardson rookie numbers...
267 attempts 950 yards 11 TDS
Ingram rookie numbers...
122 attempts 474 yards 5 TDS
Each is with completely different style teams so its hard to really gauge the talent between all of them. As far as looking at them, I feel that Lacy runs the best and is more of a dual threat compared to the others. He fits exactly into the style that the Packers need from their backfield. Eddie Lacy has a bright future with Green Bay as long as he can stay healthy. He has played ten games so far this season and he also has a very good back James Starks that can steal carries from him as well.
Of course I always ask you the readers... Do you think Eddie Lacy is the long term solution for the Packers backfield?
