The Green Bay Packers haven’t had a significant running game since Ahman Green left town way back in 2006. However, the folks in the Cheese State might just have an All-Pro running back on their hands. Eddie Lacy is mature beyond his years as the first-year running back is molding into one of the Packers’ most lethal offensive weapons.
With Green Bay mainstays like James Jones, Jermichael Finely and Randall Cobb all out of action NFL fans knew that the Packers would have to manage somehow. Well, if Sunday night was any indication then it looks like the Packers are devoting themselves to the running game like never before, which is incredibly scary for contending NFC teams to think about.
Lacy toted the ball 29 times against the Minnesota Vikings for 94 rush yards and a touchdown. In addition, James Starks returned to the line-up after going down with a knee injury in Week 3 and added in 57 rush yards and a score of his own. Needless to say; Aaron Rodgers‘ job for the Packers is starting to change as the offense is going from pass-heavy to a more balanced attack.
Look out NFC, the Packers are more formidable than ever.
