The Green Bay Packers were eliminated from the playoffs in heartbreaking fashion last week and had an overall disappointing season. Eddie Lacy was a disaster all year. The team expected him to be a star running back but he was so bad that he lost his job to James Stark at one point.
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy called out Lacy’s noticeable weight gain this season and flat out said Lacy needs to lose weight in the offseason:
“Eddie’s got a lot of work to do. I’m stating the obvious. His offseason last year was not what it should be and he never recovered from it. He cannot play at the weight he did this year.”
Lacy did show flashes of brilliance in the latter half of the season and has the talent. Hopefully a weight loss can help save his career.
