Eddie Lacy Appreciation Thread
So I was just looking at some numbers for AP and Lacy and saw some eerily similar numbers...
So for these stats I subtracted Eddie's 1 carry for 10 yards and a first down against the Redskins due to him being knocked out after the first play of the game because of a concussion he sustained from a hit by Merriweather.
In 14 games AP had 1437 yards on 308 touches
In 14 games Lacy had 1425 yards on 318 touches
AP had 70 first downs
Lacy had 72 first downs
AP had 11 touchdowns
Lacy had 11 touchdowns
AP lost 3 fumbles
Lacy lost 1 fumbles
AP 31 rushes of at least 10 yards
Lacy 29 rushes of at least 10 yards
AP 6 for 20 on rushes inside the ten yard line
Lacy 10 for 22 on rushes inside the ten yard line
AP 12 for 18 on 3rd down rushes going for a 1st down
Lacy 11 for 17 on 3rd down rushes going for a 1st down
Both players played through numerous injuries throughout the season and still each averaged over 100 yards per game.
Lacy was number one in the NFL in rushes inside the 3 yard line going 7 for 8 in those situations.
I am not arguing by any means that Lacy is better or will be better than AP...Im just pointing out that Lacy had a very comparable season to that of AP, which no one would have expected before the season started. Go EDDIE! and go packers!
the packers have so much talent...
