Last season as a rookie, Eddie Lacy was a nice surprise as a rookie for the Green Bay Packers. In his first season in the league, while helping the Packers win the NFC North, Lacy rushed for 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns while starting 15 games in the regular season.
So, is it possible that he could be even better this year in his sophomore season?
Well according to comments made by head coach Mike McCarthy on Saturday, it could be. McCarthy notes that while Lacy appears more polished than he was last season, he also seems to be more comfortable with the scheme.
MM: I think Eddie Lacy looks more polished, more comfortable in the offense…He had a couple really nice catches. He’s getting better.

Should that be the case, then Lacy will be close to unstoppable in 2014 which can only spell great things for the team. If he can turn in another great rushing performance this season, then that leaves Aaron Rodgers and the receiving corps a lot more room to do their damage. And we all know what that unit can do when they have ample chances to get the job done.
While some have criticized Alabama running backs for failing to perform at the highest level, Lacy is certainly doing everything in his power to make that go away.
