Are u kidding me??? Man am I disappointed in Packer Nation and ROLL Tide nation, what ya’ll too busy to support Eddie Lacy and make it over there and vote a few times??? Come on Man, 120 on the ground vs defending champs in their house, and directly responsible for huge PA deep pass to Nelson, and also put the nail in the coffin on the final drive by picking up a couple key late first downs. Geez sad day in GB, I’m calling for a straight up RECOUNT! lol
At least my boy Lacy did WIN the Fed Ex Ground playa’ of the week, he was just nominated for too many awards this week, votes got spread out, That is what happens when u dominate on such a level like Eddie Lacy!!!!!! Time to build a new Trophy case or shelf Mr. Lacy, i hear ikia is good….lol
So… you catch 3 touchdowns in a game and you dont win rookie of the week? How does that happen? Poor Fauria…
Can’t go wrong with this pick. They all seemed even to me this week.
Not happy that it came at the expense of my Colts, but the people have spoken. Thanks Tracy!
Alec got robbed…he’s been the most dominant, overall, all year— and wk6 with just 9 tackles and an insane 98 yd interception return for TD…I think was enough to throw him a bone.
What a joke. Alec is the clear top performer/athlete/difference-maker this far…and is 9 tackles and an ABSURD 98 yd int return for a TD not enough to finally throw him a bone?
Pls- like to see Lacy on a non-elite offense…he’s grandfathered in to success- I think Jarvis jones would look pretty good w Seattle…
