My post had nothing to do with "since he was good in college he'll be good in the NFL." that's an absurd statement that anyone who knows anything about football wouldn't make. Of course it's not far fetched to have doubts about Lacy. It's not far fetched to have doubts about any prospect in history. My point was, saying that Lacy won't translate into a good NFL back because he had a dominant O line is a little ridiculous, in my opinion. The article posted wasn't to show how good a college RB he was, it was just to show that he has, and has shown to have, everything needed to be a good RB, regardless of his line. Obviously it helped his numbers and production. There's no question. But he has shown exceptional vision and the ability to make defenders miss whether it be in the hole and or in the open field, and whether it be going through them or around them.

Of course people have their own opinions of propects. I would never bash someone for having a different opinion of a prospect. I just think saying Lacy won't be good because he had a dominant offensive line is kind of lazy, if I'm being completely honest.


I so much agree...and let allow: a lot of College LBs are day-one-dominant-starters in the NFL and they were those who college RBs were facing...Lacy has it all to be an NFL workhorse...

I get what you're saying, but to an extent, saying that he has shown he doesn't need a good offensive line to be good (in college) is still suggesting it translates into the NFL Game and we don't know that yet. We can't make that prediction, not truthfully. We can speculate which is all you, me, and everyone else are doing, but, my point was, just because someone has success in college 'despite their offensive line' doesn't mean they'll do the same in the NFL.
