Packers striving for offensive balance
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Packers finally have a running back in Eddie Lacy who can take pressure off Aaron Rodgers and the passing game, reports the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Defenses won't be able to let their safeties sit back in coverage.

“You hope they play you two-shell defense all day when Eddie’s in the backfield,” coach Mike McCarthy told the paper. “But there’s more to it than that, too, because you don’t want to be one-dimensional one way or the other. We’ve lived that life where we were heavy one-dimensional throwing it, and you’d like to have balance. It makes it easier, puts a little less stress on your quarterback, your best player.”

Eddie Lacy to see fewer 8-man fronts
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Packers running back Eddie Lacy won the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year award despite quarterback Aaron Rodgers missing seven games and most of another. Without Rodgers, defenses ganged up on the run.

Lacy overcame those 8-man fronts to rush for 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns. 

"The experience of losing Aaron last year has helped the development of our running game," coach Mike McCarthy said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "Running the ball against eight-man fronts is something you have to do in this league. Usually for us, it’s been more situational.

"But to do it on an every-down basis has been a real benefit for us. I think we can expand off that."

McCarthy: I want Eddie Lacy to be a three-down player
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Friday that he'd like Eddie Lacy to "be a three-down player," according to ESPN. 

Lacy had 284 carries for 1,178 yards (4.1 yards per carry), with 11 touchdowns and 35 catches for 257 yards last year but played in over 80 percent of a game's snaps just four times out of 16 games according to ProFootballFocus.com, suggesting he focused on the first two downs for much of the season.

Packers' plan for Eddie Lacy: 'Leave him alone'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

New Packers running backs coach Sam Gash said he has a plan for NFL offensive rookie of the year Eddie Lacy. "Leave him alone. Let him run," Gash said, per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

"Just point him in the right direction and let him go," Gash continued. "Just talk to him about the little things, the part about being a pro. He’s a young guy and he plays hard, but there’s an art to being a pro. I’m definitely not going to mess him up. That’s something I learned a long time, let runners run."

Gash, a former fullback who blocked for Curtis Martin, said Lacy reminds him of Martin in some respects. Martin made the Hall of Fame after rushing for 14,101 yards and 90 touchdowns in his career.
