Most of us saw this coming, but just in case you thought his contract may be restructured this pretty much should answer that. Great RB, may be the best in Falcons history but it is time to get younger.

Give me Lacy, Gillislee, Bernard, Ellington, Taylor, or Reggie Bush as the starter going into next season.

Lacy is not that good guys. He's a bad fit for the scheme we run too. So why bring in a guy who's slow and a plodder like Turner?

Give me Rodgers as the starter and give me a rb in the draft as a change of pace. Yall not going to just give a rookie what rodgers has earned?

Bernard or Gillislee please and thank you. We are probably going more of a RBBC and that is fine with me.

Yes, he is that good. And as I already mentioned and you ignored, good coaches will tweak systems for talented players.

I like Lacy, I just dont like Lacy as a 1st or 2nd round pick. Which is why I dont think he is going to be a Falcon.

I gotta agree with GSU here

I really want Gio though.

ignored? more like I don't read every single topic after I post in them to follow people's reposnses.


Good coaches will do that.

and No, he isn't that good. He's a slow, plodding guy who was boosted by a great OL. He's a 2nd round pick at best and people are trying to push him off as a 1st rounder. he doesnt have the top end speed to be a 1st rounder at all. nor is he worth the Falcons pick in the 2nd because of his 4.65-4.7 speed.

I have to somewhat agree with Scar here, and this is coming from a die hard Bama fan. Now I do believe he is worth our second round pick, but I would find it hard to take him in the first. The guy is a hard nosed runner who can use you're momentum against you, whether it be spinning off your hit or making you miss altogether, but he simply doesn't have the speed to be a home run hitter in the NFL. While I do believe he has starter potential, being from Alabama means he played with what should be 3 first round picks on the right side of the line, a sophomore left tackle that's a sure fire first rounder, and a left guard that will make it to the NFL.

As a side note, there's a reason he left this year. TJ Yeldon was going to get the majority of the carries whether Lacy returned or not. Lacy isn't on top of the world of talent, but you know what you're getting when you draft him. A guy with medium potential who has very refined skills and has been well coached, but at the same time lacks the speed to break away and tries to make up for it with his vision and hard nosed style.

lacy is not that good guys sorry, anyone can look good behind Bama's O-line. he isn't a home run threat Gio fits our system WAY better. dude can catch out of the backfield and take it to the house. we all know dirk loves those screens

Basically people are saying he isn't.that good because he won't run a sub 4.4. Plenty of guys don't run that. He has good hands, great size, power and agility. Good moves and vision and very reliable hands. The only back i would take over him is Bernard, possibly lattimore.

Not fitting our scheme is a pretty poor and lazy reason

Thanks for 5 great years Turner, but don't let the door hit you.

I do like Lacy, but I don't think he is perfect for our scheme. We could tweak it for him, but I think drafting a Bernard or Ellington would do us better. If we are looking for a later rd pick, then I'd love to have Jonathan Franklin in the 3-4, or maybe take a flier on a guy like Dennis Johnson.

Not a big fan of Lacy. I think he definetly benefited from a OL that was just out of this world for a college OL. But he is slow. Very slow. And think we need to get a guy who can get up and go.

What about a guy like Jonathan Franklin in the 4th?
