Jesus Christ! this discussion Brick wall

Injuries is part of the game, some guys get injured some guys get lucky and remain injury free. Sh*t happens, expecially in our sport when everybody hits each other at 100mph. You got to take the good as well as the bad.

Lacy had some good things and some not so good things, Ball had some good things and some not so good things. When it all shook out they were very very even. Even I could not decide who i preferred the most. It's clear based on the draft that some teams had the same problem too.

We obviously had them quite even otherwise we would've not traded down and instead just drafted the guy we liked.

We wanted a new RB, we wanted to be more physical, we end up selecting Lacy (which many of you wanted by the way) who ticks those boxes and we should just be happy that choice and enjoy the ride whatever happens.

I don't understand the packer fan mentality of "he's injured...he sucks! CUT HIM!" I remember people hating on Rodgers when he first took over Favre because he was "injury prone". How did that work out for you?

The difference is that Lacy got his in the toughest conference in the country. Ball on the other hand played in a weak conference. Fortunately for Ball, he went to Denver which will be a great system for him. If he fizzles out in Denver, we can clearly write off any Badger RB for good when it comes to drafting RB's.

Last night at the GB Blizzard game, my son got Eddie Lacy, Jonathon Franklin, Alex Green and DuJuan Harris autographs. He was psyched! Probably as much as me.

So now I'll add some sort of comment about football then..... I think Lacy/Franklin duo is going to compliment each other nicely. Lacy will keep grinding the hard yardage and Franklin will be the one to break the long runs. I just hope there are enough carries to divy up between the two (seeing as how we don't run the ball much), let alone getting Harris/Green in the mix. Looking forward to the battle come training camp.

Quite a nicely written article on Lacy. Talks a little about his past and how he got to "Running angry".

http://www.jsonline.com/sports/packers/packers-rookie-running-back-lacy-has-burden-to-carry-b9951355z1-215404221.html

Quote:
Lacy remembers that after scoring touchdowns in high school fans cheering, teammates slapping him on the back he would walk to the sideline and take a knee. Alone.

"There was a lot of anger," Lacy says. "When I played back in Gretna, it was fun. You make a good play, you make somebody miss, you get back on the sideline and your friends are going to laugh about it. It was fun. It was a riot. After the hurricane, I was aggravated, angry."

He's been trying to recover since.


I am a little worried that he isn't motivated enough to be a success, especially since it sounds like he's putting on weight.

I hope it works out for him, because quite honestly, we need him to be THE guy.

lolwut did we draft a manic depressive to run the football? That was a terrible article. Well, it was a great article, but the content was concerning. He's only 22, as mentioned, but he seems so blah about football and life in general. Strange. I honestly feel bad for the kid.

Yeahhhh that's why he was available at 61. Hopefully the atmosphere of Green Bay can make another person a la Woodson and we can walk away with more than anyone thought possible.

Franklin pick looks even better.

Wait, we just drafted a guy who isn't a choir boy? Who doesn't have a shining background of perfectness?

:Looks around:

Is this real life?

one of three: depression, bipolar and schizophrenia hits 75% of the
entire population in their early 20's age. How hard and how long
and how people deal with it has not been measured yet.

Hurricane Katrina would cause many of us to have a very different outlook on things. Loosing basically everything, displaced from home, losing friends/loved ones. Few of us know that feeling and how it might shape us.

I agree. I lived in NO and moved just before Katrina, like a year before it hit.
I went down there after to help friends and the loss was sustained by everyone. Tragedy felt by everyone.

To be honest I felt very lucky.

Definitely makes me feel somewhat uneasy. It's definitely concerning when mental issues are involved.
