  • Not sure why it feels like the majority of 12s are down on him. I imagine this will turn out like Wilson/Flynn did and the bandwagon will fill up come week 3 or 4. This guy is the closest thing to beast mode we will ever see. You got a glimpse of that yesterday. He was instantly my favorite player when they signed him. Give the dude a chance and don't overreact or overthink preseason. Go Hawks.

    Lacy will rush for 1,100 and 10TDs.

    Bend the knee.

  • Last night was his best game of the 3. I was a little disappointed in what I saw during short-yardage situations, but overall I have seen improvement with Lacy every week.

  • You are probably right that he's about as close to Lynch as we're going to get. He's durable and obviously can pass protect and catch. He was good last night I'm convinced his ankle will be 100% by the 10th.

  • I do think he has suffered from a lack of full game carries, i.e. wearing the defense down. But I also think Carson is playing like 2015 Rawls and 2015 Rawls was an unstoppable force.

    Not down on him here. Even though I've speculated he could be cut. The reasons for cutting him would only be based on pragmatic cap reasons. I would expect him to be worth his contract. Injuries to me don't matter as those are just an assumed risk of playing football. He has real quality.

    Of course, that could be said of any running back!!! Our OL line has to give him two steps to get going.

    Never against him. He's a bell cow type RB. Green Bay screwed up simple as that. He isn't Marshawn but he's pretty near and a much better pass blocker and receiver.

    Well, that is a bit suspect, being based on a blurry picture, but still :stirthepot: :drool:


    Lol..
    How about the HulkMode pic where Lacy looking like an offensive lineman wears a green six-pack-abs print under his jersey.
    Meanwhile in another pic Carson shows off his physique and real washboard abs.

  • I think it's hard to get too excited about any of the Seahawks' RBs simply because there's too much uncertainty about role and too many of them to begin with.

    They've gotta be the only team in the league that kept 6 backs on their 53, and there's literally four of them (Rawls, Lacy, Prosisse, and Carson) who are fighting for fans' affection.

    If I had to guess, across the season I'd figure there will be weeks in which Lacy has close to 20 touches and weeks in which he has close to zero.

    Basically, it's a year in which a Seahawks fan has to either be excited about the running back POSITION or not. Trying to pick one horse out of that stable is a fool's errand.

  • I think we are in for a treat with this years versatile and complementary running back corp. The wealth at running back foretells an entertaining and adaptive offense. An adaptive offense featuring geninue spark plugs to ignite the offense. Versatile receiver / running backs to unsettle defenses and instill uncertainty about formations and intent. And, a clock work hammer to finish off games ..... Eddie Lacy.

    Such a versatile and complementary group. I welcome the spectacle of the Seahawk offense asserting it's will on game day.

    Well the bribe doesn't appear to be enough. Sounds like he has failed his last weigh in. Pete was asked if he made weight this week and answered "He is doing really well".

    I'm not down on Lacy, I just don't think he's a good fit for our terrible run blocking O-line. Lacy isn't a quick one cut back like Rawls, Prosise and now Carson.

    Lacy needs a good line that can sustain a block for more than half a second before getting destroyed and the hole collapsing.

  • Here are his incentives.....

    According to Field Yates of ESPN.com, Lacy's contract with the Seahawks includes seven different monthly weigh-in incentives, worth $55,000 each:

    May: 255 pounds
    June and August: 250 pounds
    September through December: 245 pounds

    Do we really? Last weigh in, Carroll was cagey about answering the question, and posters on here were rabble rousing about how that was Pete speak for Lacy not making weight. Turns out Lacy did, in fact, make weight.

    It seems Carroll is trying to move the focus off the whole weight thing, and keep the focus on Lacy as a whole back, rather than this one small issue. If so, I agree with him. It is ridiculous how the fans have become so obsessed with Lacy's weight.

    If he is contributing, his weight is inconsequential to anything but his wallet. If he isn't contributing, but he is making weight, it is inconsequential to anything but his wallet. If he is neither contributing, nor making weight, then, perhaps, we can blame the weight. Since we don't know yet how he is contributing, the weight is inconsequential.

    If by obsessed you mean there is interest to know that someones weakness that caused him to lose his previous job is still a problem for a player we may need to count on, then yes. Guilty as charged.

    If he is contributing then all is well? Sure, everyone deserves a trophy right? :roll:

    Lastly....I wonder why Pete and John were so obsessed with Lacy's weight, they tied $55,000 per month to it and his contract?

    :34853_doh:

    If he ends the season at 255 pounds, having amassed over 1,000 yards and over 4.1 yards per carry, no one will care about his weight except Lacy and his bank account.

    Hell, since he is splitting carries, even if he ends the season with less than 1,000 yards, but with a 4.1-4.5 YPC average, his weight won't matter.

    Don't see how this equates to a participation trophy.

    We could throw around numbers all day to make our points. How bout if he is 1+ YPC behind say Carson?

    His weight effects his speed and quickness and conditioning. "Contributing" tells you nothing about what he may have done in better condition. So NO. It does not just effect his wallet. It can effect the team and wins.

  • If he is 240 pounds, and averages 2.5 YPC, he will be cut because of his lack of contribution, despite making weight.

    Of course there is some area in between 2 and 4 YPC where it may not be clear if he is making a valuable contribution or not.

    His weight is an extremely minor part of this, and it would appear that is the message Pete is sending by responding with "He is doing really well."

  • Weight won't matter much. Also we absolutely cannot assume he didn't make weight. Particularly since last weigh in, Pete gave a similarly obtuse non answer, when he could have just answered the yes/no question easily.

    We do not know what Pete meant. He's been intentionally evasive this offseason in this regard already. Probably in an attempt to just not make it a big deal for fans to get worked up about.

    Lacy looked good and healthy the last time we saw him two weeks ago. Expect to see much of the same. Nothing really to wring our hands about.

  • Pete tried to be cagey about who will start but may have given away that, this week anyway, it won't be TR: He said they had already decided it, before acknowledging that TR was not yet a sure thing. They would have taken that into account before making the Decision.

    My guess is that EL gets the most RB touches against GB, but that CJ gets the most RB yards.

    We do not know what Pete meant. He's been intentionally evasive this offseason in this regard already. Probably in an attempt to just not make it a big deal for fans to get worked up about.

    Lacy looked good and healthy the last time we saw him two weeks ago. Expect to see much of the same. Nothing really to wring our hands about.


    You should tell that to the Packers....

    The Packers listed Lacy at 234 pounds this season, but there were rumors during training camp that he weighed as much as 242 pounds. He was alternately ineffective and out of the lineup, and he had only six games out of the 18 Green Bay played in which he topped 75 yards, which was his career average coming into the season.

  • What was the desired weight for him again according to Pete ... 245? If he's over by 3 or 4 pounds, it's not that consequential. If he balloons up to 265, that would be a big deal.

    I agree that Pete is done with this whole offseason weight issue and is concentrating on football and Eddie being the best running back he can be. I think we should head that direction too.

    No Lacy did not make weight this month. That was my whole point.


    Where did you see that?

    His last weight in was Tuesday, and as far as I've read, Pete hasn't said anything.


    You decide and tell me.

    Check the question at the 6 minute mark.....

    You're right, that's Pete speak for "no."

    It's still not that big of a deal for me, I assume if he didn't make weight it was only by a couple pounds this far along in camp.

    It's still no excuse for him not running well, a couple pounds isn't coming into GB's camp last year 20-30 lbs overweight. Even then Lacy was having a good year until he got hurt.

    IMO too much is being made of this.

  • Pete said "He's done everything we've asked him to do". One of the things they asked him to do was make specific weight goals as the preseason progressed. Just because he didn't answer it directly as yes or no, doesn't mean he didn't answer it.

    Whatever.

    When first asked (his 1st 2 weigh ins) Pete went from a resounding smiling Yes!.... to now dodging the question. Look at his face when he hears the question.

    The coach speak is pretty obvious, but believe what you want.

    Every other weigh in Pete said he made weight, so why not say it this time?

    Not that I care, but no, he didn't make weight..........and Pete hesitated, which means he was searching for the right way to spin it.

    Don't have to be a Kojak to figure this one out.

    Wasn't there one who hailed from Detroit that played at 250 plus? His name slips my mind. :mrgreen:

    Pete deflected last time, too, and it turned out Lacy made weight.

    Pete also said "He's done everything we've asked" a couple of times. That would seem to one like myself who is more focused on seeing his play that he has probably met his weight goals.

    Pete said the word "yes" last time when pressed by a reporter.

    This time? No.
