7. Get Lacy back in shape
With Nelson sidelined, the Packers needed Eddie Lacy more than ever. Unfortunately, he failed to deliver on expectations and regressed in a big way. Mike McCarthy admitted Lacy was out of shape and couldn’t play at the same weight again moving forward.
Getting Lacy back to his best is of crucial importance this offseason. He adds another dimension on offense by breaking tackles for fun and ploughing down defenders in his path. Even when Aaron Rodgers was playing at his MVP-best in 2014, defenses were often so concerned with Lacy they opened up favorable matchups for the Packers’ receivers.
So far, so good for Lacy this offseason. Per Rob Demovsky of ESPN, he is expected to work with P90X founder Tony Horton:
"“According to a source, Lacy has spent time in Wyoming for several weeks and he’s committed to going through the program, which will continue in California and run until the offseason program starts in April.”"
When the spring workouts roll around in April, much of the focus will be on Lacy’s shape and how he’s looking. If he can get back to his dominant best that we saw during his first two seasons in the league, look out.
