"I'm not going to do this anymore. I don't correct individuals in the media. We've seen the film, corrections have been made, our running game wasn't nearly what it needed to be. Not even close."
Five of Lacy's 11 carries Sunday against the Lions went for zero or negative yardage, including one in which he was tackled for a safety.
After facing three of the league's best run defenses through three weeks, it probably comes as no surprise the
Perhaps even more alarming is that star running back
"We have to change our mind-set," Lacy said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "We had a few opportunities as backs that we didn't take advantage of, whether we made the wrong read or tried to press too much. It's a long season and we're going to get it to where we need it to be.
"We just have to figure out better ways to run the ball. I don't know if I have to be more patient or speed things up but one way or another I'm responsible for the run game."
Lacy had just 11 attempts, picking up 36 yards during the game. He also had one catch for 9 yards. Lacy got himself in trouble early, losing a fumble. That allowed James Starks to enter the game earlier than usual, and steal some carries. The Lions controlled the line of scrimmage during the game, and limited Lacy's effectiveness.
Lacy will look for more Week 4 against the Bears.
The Packers found it much easier moving the ball in the passing game, and Lacy finished the first half with just five yards on three carries. He's managed to average just over three yards per carry in his first two games, though he did face rough matchups in each of those games. He could find things easier next week when the Packers travel to Detroit.
Lacy was listed as probable on the injury report after suffering a concussion in Week 1. He was cleared to practice in full early in the week. Lacy is facing a Jets defense that held the Raiders to 25 rushing yards on 15 attempts in Week 1.
