Twitter and Facebook blew up last night over a picture of Eddie Lacy that shows him looking like the Michelin Man or the Pillsbury Doughboy.
While that picture may just be a bad angle of the Packers rookie running back, it reveals that Lacy is one big dude. If he can continue to run over linebackers like he did when he was at Alabama, I can live with that.
And judging by what Lacy was doing in the red zone reps at the Packers practice session this morning, there’s a reason the Packers drafted the big man – to pick up the tough yards when they are needed – something the Packers have not been very good at in recent years.
With that said, The Lakeland Times, the newspaper where I spend my days as editor, sent sportswriter Jim Oxley to Green Bay on Saturday morning to take in the Packers second day of training camp practice. Jim took hundreds of photos, some of which are of Eddie Lacy. Going through those photos, I don’t see any that paint the picture that last night’s picture did. Though one has to understand once again that Eddie Lacy, I reiterate – is one big guy and will continue to be a big man throughout training camp and into the season.
In addition to some pictures of Lacy, we’ve got a bunch of other pictures of guys like Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and so many others that we are sharing below because we know you’re just as interested in seeing pictures of those guys as you are in seeing pictures of Lacy.
Anyway, here you go … enjoy
