Packers want Eddie Lacy to lose 30 pounds

cd0ymzcznguwzdbhnduynddiytjhm2yyzthlmtjjotqwyyznptu0ndixytc0mjvmm2m5zmzlyzbkogjhzmi4mwq1mtuy AP

We knew Packers coach Mike McCarthy wanted Eddie Lacy to shape up this offseason, and now we know a specific target for Lacy to lose.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the Packers want Lacy to lose 30 pounds, and Lacy is committed to accomplishing that before the season starts.

Lacy weighed 231 pounds at the 2013 Scouting Combine, and the Packers liked him well enough at that weight to choose him in the second round of the NFL draft. He’s only listed at 234 now, but he surely weighs significantly more than that. A good guess would be that Lacy currently weighs more than 250 and that the Packers want him under 230.

Ultimately, what the Packers really want is for Lacy to play like he did in his first two seasons, and not like he did in his third year, when he had career lows in carries (187), yards (758), yards per carry (4.05), touchdowns (three), catches (20) and receiving yards (188). The Packers’ coaches think the key to getting Lacy back on track is to get him in better shape.

    Big Ben is and always has been listed at the EXACT 241 lbs. that he came into the league at in his rookie year. Dollars to doughnuts he’s north of 280 now.

    Good luck with that. That is like telling Johnny Booziel to cut 30 beers out of his week.

  3. alex7awesome says: Feb 1, 2016 11:39 AM

    I’d bet a lot of money he gains 30 pounds.

    Wonder how much the Steelers want Roethlisberger to lose. Big Ben is now Huge Ben.

    Why did they wait till the season was over before they told him to loose weight?

    Lay off him! He’s starving!!!

  9. spiffybiff says: Feb 1, 2016 11:45 AM

    That’s a lot. Would say 20lbs Is about right. His game is size and power running

    China food restaurants in Green Bay will be devastated by the loss in revenue.

    Here is a challenge to all of you:

    I’ll pay for your personal trainer. If you lose 30 pounds over 6 months , I’ll pay you $5,000,000.

    How many of you would refuse that challenge?

    If Lacey doesn’t want the money, chances are there is another “hungry” RB who is up to that challenge.

  12. vikesfan320 says: Feb 1, 2016 11:47 AM

    If he’s 234 than Aaron Rodgers is about 180. Not good for a player’s long-term prospects when they have to be told to get in shape. If he’s not under constant guidance, odds are he’s going to fall back out of line. He’s been a Viking killer since he entered the league as he gives slight DB’s fits tackling him, but by the last game this past season he couldn’t hardly get himself accelerated.

    “Yum yum, more cheese please, Eddie.”

    “Coach pass the beer brats and cheese fries n chili. So good.”

    “Yum yum nom nom here you go Eddie. Want to play video games?”

    “Food coma coach. Need to sleep so I have energy for tenth meal.”

    “Good thinkin Eddie. You smart!”

  14. randomguy9999 says: Feb 1, 2016 11:48 AM

    he certainly needs to lose it… that breakout he did in the last game would have been a TD on the spot if he lost 30…. he looked like a slow lumbering lineman trying to pick 6 at the end of that run… last time I checked he’s supposed to be fast

  15. northpackalacky says: Feb 1, 2016 11:48 AM

    Eddie can do it.

  16. ebrownwareagle says: Feb 1, 2016 11:49 AM

    Ok. Yes he is a Fat Boy. The thing people are missing is THE 4 YPC! Seems like they should have given him the ball a lot more. Production is production regardless of how you try and spin it.

    He’s north of 260 now. Dropping 30 still has him playing at 230-235 which shouldn’t cost him a lot of power. It’s a reasonable request both in terms of making him faster and prolonging his career.

  22. Teddy BH20's House of Noodles says: Feb 1, 2016 11:58 AM

    True. But that 4YPC came against scrub teams like the Vikings. He struggled against defenses that weren’t soft.

    I can be Eddie’s personal trainer. He would lose 30 lbs. in no time.

  27. ninerfan81 says: Feb 1, 2016 12:03 PM

    He can lose 20 next month by eliminating sugar and carbs…takes a lot of discipline to be a millionaire and stay in top shape…if he’s expending that much energy playing football his calorie intake must be in the stratosphere…he can hire a cook and get it off the right way.

    There’s nothing wrong with a runningback being 250 pounds. Jerome Bettis made an entire career out of it, actually.

    The problem is you have to be in good enough shape to carry that weight around, and Eddie Lacy was not.

    Unfortunately the easy solution is to just lose the weight. As a fan longing for the next coming of Jerome Bettis, though, I’d much rather see him bulk up and carry that 250 pounds with authority.

    Oh well.

  31. mcjon22 says: Feb 1, 2016 12:06 PM

    30 seems high.

    He’s a big back, 15-20 lbs plus toning up seems like a better way to go.

  32. In Teddy We Trust says: Feb 1, 2016 12:11 PM

    The easiest solution would be to just draft another running back in the second or third round. I’ve been calling Lacy “Dime a Dozen” since he entered the league. Not just because he’s so easily replaceable, but because it usually takes him 10 carries to gain 12 yards.

  33. Wisconsin's Favorite Son Jeffrey Be Dahmed says: Feb 1, 2016 12:11 PM

    Will Eddie still be able to stumble, fall down, and get up and run on his own?

    Maybe that’s why it took so long for the Packers to realize he was fat and he stunk. He looked so good against the Packers Swiss cheese defense Monday thru Saturday.

    If Eddie loses 30 lbs. he’ll look skinny compared to the rest of us.

    Dude should be able to lose a healthy 30lbs in two months if he took it seriously. He will do it.

    ————
    That is an odd thing to say when his career 4.3 YPC average says otherwise. Even this year he averaged 4.1 YPC. He was a bruising back his first 2 years. He forced defenders to make a business decision when tackling him in the open field and wore them out.

  47. stellarperformance says: Feb 1, 2016 12:25 PM

    Losing the weight will be easy, if he actually wants to. If his motivation lingers somewhere around comic books and fast food, I’d have to say his career is going to end before it got started.

    Next man up.

  49. dprouse says: Feb 1, 2016 12:28 PM

    I’ll guarantee that he played most of this season at 265-270. For reference as to how much all of this matters, go grab one of those huge 30 lb bags of dog food next time you are at the store, and then think that this is what he is lugging around every time he takes a snap…

  51. housemusic1200 says: Feb 1, 2016 12:31 PM

    I don’t think Eddie is their issue. They’ll be fine once Jordy comes back. The defense is atrocious, and Claymaker can’t be expected to be everywhere. Defense, and offensive line should be the top priority. Can’t rely on hail mary passes every year. As for Noodles comment above…… The Vikings defense didn’t lose the playoff game, where as YOUR defense got torched…. For yet another playoff loss, in overtime. Spin the loss however you want. Watching Clay Mathews parallel Fitz all the way to the end zone, like they were racing, was Benny Hill like. Call the Vikings soft, fake, horrible coach, fluke, say whatever you want. The NFC North is no longer a gimme for your squad, and it’s got all you Packer trolls very defensive, and foaming at the mouth! The excuses from Brown County are pathetic, just like your team. Botched coin toss, no OPI called on Fitz, missed holding calls on AZ. The excuses are endless. Just own up to the fact that they’re not a very good team. When the Vikings lost, you didn’t hear any excuses. They owned it, they lost on a shanked gimme FG. No blaming the refs, no blaming injuries, no blaming the coin toss. We just owned it, and moved on to next year. That’s what we do, we look forward, where you guys look back. That’s the difference here. It’s Vikings football…. Better football, for better people. Check please!

  53. bridgeh2o says: Feb 1, 2016 12:37 PM

    I bet he was close to 275 several weeks ago……probably closing in on 3 bills since the season ended.

    Let’s say he truly is 275 right now. My guess is at 245, he still needs to trim it down.

    Let’s see, he plays for a team that pays homage to brats, beer and cheese.

    He will fall off the bus, and land in a bucket of beer, brats, n cheese.

    He has NO CHANCE!!!!!!!

  54. xenova1 says: Feb 1, 2016 12:40 PM

    How much did Bettis weigh when he played? I thought Lacy was trying to mimic him or The Fridge.

  55. Norseman says: Feb 1, 2016 12:40 PM

    I doubt he is able to keep it off. He may get there at one point because his job is on the line, but I really doubt he keeps it off.

    Either you have the desire to compete at the highest level, or you don’t.

    Lacy is clearly in the latter group.

  56. kinggator says: Feb 1, 2016 12:41 PM

    If Eddie needs to lose 30lbs my guess is the average cheese eating Packer fan needs to lose at least 50lbs.

    Packer fans are so fat they bleed cheese sauce!

    ——————————————————–

    Probably the best comparison I have seen on here in months. nice call.

    As a Bears fan, I hope Lacy continues to eat his way out of the league. He is a beast when motivated, and tough to handle. Growing up watching extremely physical running backs, it is hard for me to root against guys who run with a bruising style (playing for the Packers makes it a little easier), but like a lot of these younger players, he needs a message sent to straighten him out.

    The world is littered with talented guys who didn’t have the discipline to be the best. And the Hall of Fame is full of guys who were the best, in many cases not having the elite physical tools (Walter Payton as an example at 5’10, 190-200 lbs. in his career). I am a believer in that you don’t learn a work ethic as an adult. You adapt for survival, but you can’t turn a guy into a workaholic if he got to the top without it. But that would mean he will do enough to keep his job, maybe even enough to get a new contract after next season, but it won’t be sustainable. As soon as new money gets in his pocket, he will balloon back up.

  64. theofficialshotcaller says: Feb 1, 2016 12:58 PM

    Why not just have him eat his way to another 10-20 pounds (I’m sure he’ll prefer this approach) and plug him in at guard?

  65. bigd9484 says: Feb 1, 2016 12:59 PM

    “Why did they wait till the season was over before they told him to loose weight?”

    Fair question but there are a few legitimate reasons that could explain that. Losing weight during the season isn’t easy and can be counterproductive in many cases. It’s tough to lose larger amounts of weight without markedly increasing cardio but guys get banged up and getting them healthy enough for the next game takes priority. And even if a guy was healthy major increases to cardio training can backfire and leave him with dead legs and steal his explosiveness.

    Getting him with a dietitian should definitely have been done but even then they likely wouldn’t have looked for major reductions during the season.

  69. jimmysee says: Feb 1, 2016 1:30 PM

    If Eddie would cut off those dreds, he’d be half way there.

  70. Frazier28/7 says: Feb 1, 2016 1:34 PM

    Why not just cut him and move on? the guy doesn’t take it serious and is just wasting a roster spot, you can easily plug in a rookie or anyone to run the ball when you have rodgers at QB. The most he’s had is 1100 in a season, big deal. Asiata and Mckinnion combined to gain more then that last year with Peterson out. And they actually stay in shape and aren’t trying to Eat themselves out of the league.

    We’ve seen players smoke, and convict themselves out of the league but Lacy might be the first player to Eat himself out of the league when he should be in his prime. Fat, dumb and packer is no way to go through life, son.

  71. cheeseisfattening says: Feb 1, 2016 1:35 PM

    Nice passive aggressive leadership on the Packers, shaming Lacy through the media. That approach did not work in getting Devonte Adams to stop playing video games and take practice seriously so I am not sure why they think it will work with getting Lacy to be serious about getting in shape.

  73. allseeingone says: Feb 1, 2016 1:43 PM

    He’s a free agent next year and he wants the Packers to trade him now before he leaves on his own.

  74. atthemurph says: Feb 1, 2016 1:46 PM

    I’m a Packers fan and have been saying the same thing all year. The guy was at least 265-275. He was so slow to the hole that he missed 3/4th of the yards he could have gotten. He has natural running ability, patience in the hole and is surprisingly agile for a big dude.

    But when you’re carrying an extra 30 or more lbs those moves and agility disappear. Lacy could not get to the edge, he couldn’t get through holes and he was a complete waste this season.

    My fear when he was drafted, and one of the reasons he lasted until the end of round two were his lack of desire to play football. It’s not the first thing he thinks about. Guys like that tend to last a much shorter period in the league than players who love the game and work to be the best.

    This guy obviously isn’t working to be the best. But if he at least gives some effort he will be a good back. Lose the 30lbs and get him down to 240. at 240 there aren’t many LBs or DBs who want to take him on, but he has to be quick enough to get to that level.

  75. teal379 says: Feb 1, 2016 1:50 PM

    Or they may have asked him several times and Eddie didn’t participate which led Mike to go out of character and call him out on it – publicly.

    Packers always try and keep stuff in house – particularly during the season but Mike was frustrated to the point where he did something he rarely does – called out a player by name to the press for under-performance.

    That tells me they’ve had the talk a lot with Eddie and Eddie wasn’t taking it serious.

    Better chance of him losing 30 pounds than the Vikings winning a Super Bowl.

  78. immafubared says: Feb 1, 2016 2:05 PM

    He reminds me somewhat of Trent Richardson in that at Bama they had holes to run through you could drive a truck through.

    Richardson got none of that in the NFl and Lacy fights like a dog to get three yards.

    I understand the mentallity of Macarthy, he is hell bent that his team will be bull rush other teams and be tough. Unfortunately, that means adding a lot of players without speed. Mac don’t care for speed. His linebackers are designed to stop the run, the tight ends for blocking more than catching.

    The Pack may be the slowest team in football so Lacy’s lack of speed goes unnoticed due to those around him.

  82. zerotrophiessince1961 says: Feb 1, 2016 2:35 PM

    3 responses to the usual suspects.

    1. Eddie Lacy has 568 rushing yards 120 receiving yards and 6 TDs against the Vikings. In 6 games. That’s hardly “dime a dozen” stats.

    2. People forget that the RB which Lacy resembles best is Jerome Bettis – and Bettis got kicked off the LA Rams in 1997 (his 3rd year) for tipping the scales at 270. He figured out how to eat, went to Pittsburgh and the rest is history and a golden jacket. Eddie could do the very same thing.

    3. That all said, when your job is to take care of your body so you can perform at your peak 16-20 times a year, and you don’t do it, you have no one to blame but yourself. Money isn’t the problem. It’s lack of knowledge and lack of will power. Phat Ed deserves the jokes until he gets more disciplined in the offseason.

  83. realityonetwo says: Feb 1, 2016 2:41 PM

    I wish my employer would force me to lose weight. That’s about the only way it’ll happen. Drat those tasty fried foods!

  84. shlort says: Feb 1, 2016 3:11 PM

    If Lacey stays on the same diet he has been in since being drafted, he will need a wheelbarrow to haul his gut around.

  85. fwippel says: Feb 1, 2016 3:27 PM

    So what ever happened to Slim-fast?

    Maybe Lacy and Mike McCarthy could sign up to do one of those Slim-fast commercials. Plenty of coaches and retired players did so in year’s past, even Buddy Ryan did one.

    McCarthy and Lacy could have contest to see who could lose the most weight. It’d be funny, and it would take care of BIG problem the Packers are having.

    He’s got more rushing yards and td’s and rushing yards than AP over the last 3 years….
    __________

    Pretty impressive considering he only played 15 more games than AP. In averages per game, it’s 91.2 yards and 0.68 TDs for AP and 66.8 yards and 0.5 TDs for Lazy.

    And AP is an over-the-hill has-been.

    Eddie has twice as many career playoff victories as Adrian Peterson, and did it in just 3 seasons. However Adrian plays for an inferior franchise, so it’s not a fair comparison.

    sorry Eddie,

    you don’t have a “going problem”
    you have a “growing problem”

    If you tweet about your obesity again, we’re going to cut ya.

    lacy really does need to lose weight, he is much bigger than his rookie year, and I know the o-line sucks, but Rodgers had a horrible year, I really believe he needs to refocus on football and stop doing so many commercials, the receiver corp also didn’t do a good job of getting open, and I thought ty Montgomery was having a good rookie year until a high ankle sprain ended his year, but despite the terrible o-line, recievers that cant get open, Rodgers missed a lot of deep throws when they did get open, that last year he made.

    They say Cam Newton is the same size and weight as Micheal Strahan when he played. Maybe it`s the same with Eddie Lacy and Gilbert Brown?

    They just want him to cut off his hair.

    Fumble away the pounds!

    WHat they should want is a decent GM. Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson aside, that team has been a joke under Thompson. Those two players are the reason that team wins. We’ve seen what happens when one or both are out.

    Hapless players like this make them perennial playoff losers!

    He’s had some concussions and thus changed his battering ram running style. We’ll see if the weight-loss helps. I hope, but don’t think we’ll see Eddie of two years ago.

    Everyone is fat in Wi, he wont look normal if he loses that kind of weight.

    So Eddie likes to hit the buffets. At least there’s a cure for that. Adrienne Peterson hit the wrong side of 3o, and there’s no cure for that. If the Bears don’t resign Matt Forte, Lacy will be the best RB in the NFC North next year.

    Eddie should probably stay off I-35 till he’s at a safer weight.

  100. captaincanoe says: Feb 1, 2016 7:22 PM

    My drivers license still has my weight at the same 160 pounds I was at 16 when I got my first license. About 40 years and 60 pounds ago.

    He did not help his team by gaining excess weight. In 2015, his annual regular season average went down -34% from 2013/2014.

    Conversely, Peterson did his team no favors by demonstrating his inherent child-rearing character flaws in 2014, forcing the Vikings to replace him with Matt Asiati.

    So….they both used poor judgment to the detriment of their teams, and there are ramifications. The Vikings finished with the 27th ranked offense in 2014. Coincidence?

    The three-year regular season totals are 3,075 for Lacy, and 3396 (2,826 + 570) for Peterson/Asiati. Over three years, this is a difference in the primary running backs performance of less than -6.5 yards per game.

    Postseason is another story. In the last three years, Lacy has rushed for 407. Peterson has rushed for 45.

    Neither player will win Mensa Society awards. But you can’t get on Lacy’s case without getting on Peterson’s too. Most Viking fans accepted his character flaws with open arms, but for some reason Lacy is less than human.

    Let’s get rid of even more dead weight, 500 pounds of useless, head coach and GM, these guys have no clue how to take this team to the next level. 2016 , 10 wins, one maybe 2 playoff wins and done. Packer fans are now ok with a winning season, that’s all!!!!! Demand we hit the refresh button!!! We need a fresh face on this team, they are in a rut!! New GM, Head Coach, free agency, use of cap money, etc. Lacey and Jordy are just 2 players on a complex football operation, it start way before the field. Is Wolf and Hulgram available. Can anyone say Cubs, Blackhawks, these clubs show how it’s done .zzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!

    Yes they are. You can only wave the flags you have, not the ones you don’t have, right?
