Eddie Lacy needs to be at 250 on Monday

AP

For most of us, stepping onto the scale on Monday morning represents the reckoning after a weekend of too much food, beer, and/or booze. For Eddie Lacy, it’s the moment on which he will, or won’t, earn another $55,000.

Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com reports that Monday is the next weight deadline for Seahawks running back Eddie Lacy, the day in June on which he needs to be at 250 pounds.

Lacy’s first $55,000 checkpoint came on May 15, when he made it to the maximum of 255 with two pounds to spare. So he needs to be down only another three pounds by Monday.

Of course, it’s not widely known what’s happened with his weight since May 12. What’s likely happening now is simple: If he’s over 250, he’ll be spending the day with maximum cardio and minimum China food.

  1. So you are saying that he is going to destroy a Golden Corral after the Monday morning weigh in.

  2. Shaving off those ropy dreads should drop him about 10lbs. I don’t know how guys can play with that mess flopping around. Must be heck keeping it clean and fungus free. I’d go hairless to keep cool and clean playing ball.

  3. There is no excuse for this guy’s handling of his own weight. 250? As a RB?? What a joke. Nice signing Seattle…if he’s a linebacker.
    I hope for his sake he got a lot of guaranteed money, because Rawls and Prosise will be handling most of the carries this season for the Seahawks.

  4. They should have stipulated his weigh-ins on three consecutive days. Anyone could cut 5 pounds for one weigh-in. Ill bet a guy his size could be up to 265 by Monday night after cutting for a weigh in.

  5. Its all about fat content and Chinese food has is high fat.

    As most of the food in America is. You can easily eat 200-250 grams a day of fat when you should be eating 50-70.

    I often look at cookie packages and have seen many that a single cookie has 4 grams of fat in it. A couple cupcakes or piece of pie? 20 grams or so of fat. Adds up really fast unless you watch what you eat very carefully.

  6. It’s absurd to have to pay a pro-athlete to be in decent shape.
    It should be the opposite, if you don’t meet your optimal weight criteria you should be fined, and if it goes on you should be fired.

  7. Hey Seattle,

    on a lighter note, no pun intended, how did you enjoy Blue Jays nation invading your city and stadium this weekend?

    I have never seen a visiting team in any professional sport dominate the crowd like this.

    The Mariners even tried jacking up the prices this year so the same thing didn’t happen like last season…..lol!

    you should be ashamed of yourselves!

    You should be glad Lacy’s out of the division. He trucked the “vaunted Zimmer defense” at will and he put it on Harriet Smith so badly, she sprained an ovary and missed several weeks.

    Its all about fat content
    —————————

    Not exactly. I could eat 2 packages of cream cheese and 1/2 a cup of macadamias every day and lose weight indefinitely. Or a 16 oz ribeye and 1/2 a dozen eggs. People lose weight on 100% fat diets.

  10. Hey remember the Fridge (William Perry) scored a TD on the Ground in 85… So what’s a few pounds?
    Sincerely,
    Eddy Lacy

  11. Will be interesting to see what the headline is tomorrow about this. If he comes in at 245 I’ll be laughing.

    If he gets down to 235-240 for the year and lights up the NFCW running over people I’ll be laughing even harder.

  12. You can take the running back out of wisconsin, but you can’t take the wisconsin out of the running back.

    I’m guessing by September he’ll be lifted out of his home with a forklift on an episode of Springer.

    Here with go again with your ineptitude on diet. You have already been corrected on your attack on fat. The fat that you are looking at in cookies and cupcakes is very likely partially hydrogenated, which is akin to poison. You should be eating ZERO of anything hydrogenated. But you obviously failed to look at the carbs in these same foods, the REAL cause of weight gain, diabetes, and insulin resistance. PLEASE educate yourself, harrisonhits2.

    As a GB fan I loved Lacy when he was healthy and in shape.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^

    What day was that?

  15. I’m by no means a nutritionist but if Eddie wants this to work, he has to do it the right way.

    I think he hit it last season working out getting in shape to get into fighting shape and then when the season started he went back to his old habits. You could see him getting bigger every week, it was so bizarre.

    Eddie has to be dedicated to lose the weight the right way. Anyone can do a colon cleanse and then go sit in a steam room and sweat out the weight but it will come back. I don’t understand how Lacy, who has the means to hire personal trainers/chefs to keep his body in better condition, avoids this. It’s obvious this guy doesn’t realize how close he is to being booted out of the league as the Packers were very patient with him.
