Eddie Lacy on Team Sanders for Pro Bowl

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 23, 2014 – 10:17 am

140123-lacy-600

Packers RB Eddie Lacy was drafted to be on Team Sanders for Sunday’s Pro Bowl in Hawaii.

For the first time in the Pro Bowl’s history, a draft of players was held with the traditional AFC-NFC format scrapped. Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders were the two GMs, and Lacy was one of three running backs taken by Sanders, along with Kansas City’s Jamaal Charles and Washington’s Alfred Morris.

Sanders selected Indianapolis QB Andrew Luck with the No. 1 overall pick. Lacy is the Packers’ lone representative in the Pro Bowl.

    Congrats to Eddie Lacey.

    No other Packers drafted to the Pro-bowl seems a little harsh. Then again “The Man” did lose his man card to Kaepernick this season.

    Not the first Packer slam, still remember the Packers being the number one defense and Tampa Bay getting more defensive pro-bowlers then the Pack.

    Too bad Lacy won’t get much playing time, his running style isn’t exactly Pro Bowl friendly. The Packers brought a hammer to a pillow fight.

    Enjoy the game from the sidelines and give that ankle a long needed rest.

    The jarring and collection of gas that comes out of you bottom is an extremely gratifying hobby. I opened a jar I had saved from around Christmas time, took a whiff, and nearly vomited. If I had, I would have collected that also! It is also important to jar and collect your bowel movements.

    DION Sanders is A-Hole Hope he does not get hurt!

    Lacy’s knee will explode like a chestnut in a microwave oven on his first running attempt and he’ll never play again. I just know it.

    sorry, Downer…there is only room for one jar in this thread.

    Rodgers was going to play, but his collarbone isn’t 100% healed!

    A volcano will erupt and shower Lacy with molten lava. I just know it.

    Rodgers milking his injury cost us the #1 seed in the NFC! Fire Capers!

    Just glad to see Suh on the same side as Lacy.

    Congrats Eddie. The Pack had a lot of bad luck this season but watch out next year!!!!!

    rodgers is a has been……Nelson made ROdgers look good. even when he was playing he made a couple great throws but the rest of the time was throwing behind, in the ground or out of bounds. Been a Packer fan for 60 years and still shake my head at why #12 gets so much attention. the rookies are better. He had his super bowl year but has gone down hill ever since. even some of his stand up teammates saw his arrogance outweighed his ability. come on man…………

    Mello, I think you’re the only one not on the Rodgers bandwagon. That guy is one of the best QB’s of this time. Every good QB has an ego, that’s just how it is. You don’t think Peyton Manning or Brady has an ego that can get them in trouble sometimes?

    Lacy got spanked in the Pro Bowl. He made a fool of himself. I just knew he would.

    Congrats to Eddie Lacy on making his way to his first Pro Bowl. And to the commenter who said Jordy made Aaron look good, i have to disagree and say that Aaron makes ALL OF THEM look good. Dont get me wrong, we obviously have some talented wide outs. Cobb, Jones, Finley, even Boykin and White have potential. He isnt some god from above but he is a damn good QB, one of the best in the game currently, and he is definitely not a “has been”.

    Rodgers is a system quarterback. Thompson will let all of his weapons walk and he’ll turn into Christian Ponder. I just know it.

    Mello, you been watching for 60 years? Try another sport. If there was ever a year that proved Rodgers worth it was this year.

    I was probably one of the first people to YELL for Favre to be traded.

    Not so sure about Rodgers just yet. Got to give him another year to see how he does. While it is silly to claim him as “The Man” given his performance at home in the cold this year. It is also still too early to get rid of him.

    Wow….Mello should never, ever speak talk about football in public again…..her lack of knowledge about football and what makes a football great is astonishing….Rogers is one of the top 2-3 QBs playing the game today…and has another 5-8 years to polish his HOF resume….if the Pack can hold the core of the team together and add some other difference makers
    Mellos’
    rants are one of the “drawbacks” of free speech

    My mom is right. Aaron is a system QB. When Lacy balloons to 350 lbs this summer he’ll have no running game too. I just know it.
