and of course I guess I should add the obligatory "no homo".
I love his enthusiasm. I love how he smiles when interviewed after a win and looks like a big kid at Christmas. I love the fact that he seems absolutely thrilled to be Alabama's running back. I love his spin move. I love how he will run over and punish a db at the end of a run.
I am sure he is gone, and I do not blame him. Considering the "short shelf life" of running backs in the NFL these days and the nagging injuries Eddie has had, he needs to "get it while he can". I am not worried about the running back position as I know we have great talent waiting in the wings, and Yeldon and others will be great filling the role. With that said, I will miss watching him on the field and grinning on the sidelines.
God speed to you Eddie in the NFL!
I agree. Eddie has become one of my favorite players and he picked the perfect time to peak and finish out his career (assuming he goes pro). He just seems like such a positive influence on the team, and he was absolutely critical in our season. Without Eddie balling out, we may not have been able to beat the dawgs and no Chrystal for us. Like Julio at the end of his Jr year, Eddie finally completely showed what he was capable of when fully healthy.

Would give +42 if I could
Eddie has been one of my favorites because of his play on the field and his smile-filled, positive attitude, off it. He will be missed

I completely agree with you and I will add one more... I love the class and discipline he shows. It doesn't matter if he makes one yard or 20 or gets pulled down by his face mask... He reacts the same way each time. Gives the ball to the official and back to work. No hot dogging or trash talking. I love him and I will miss him too if (when) he moves on.
Crazy to think how quickly his career began and will surely end at the University...blink of an eye: Eddie backup, Eddie starter, Eddie gone. I will really enjoy watching him in the NFL because he finally showed how great he can be when healthy!
He's one of my faves too. Can you imagine what he could have done this year behind this offensive line if he had been healthy all year long. I think he could have broken Bama records and gone to NY for the Heisman. Ingram did great and Trent as well, but, they didn't have as good of an offensive line to help them. It would be great to have had this line for Trent & Ingram...wow!! RTR
Remember how he had a rocky start with the fumbles...looked like he was getting down on himself.
The last half of this season you saw all that potential just explode. EL is only going to get better
Not only is he an elite back but seems really humble. A favorite player of mine regardless of sport.
Anyone remember the knee injury he had his freshman year.
I love Eddie Lacy as much as any straight man came. If he leaves and I think he will, I'll miss "Circle Button"
Despite not being 100% all year, and giving up more carries to the #2 man than both MI and TR had to before him, Eddie exceeded my expectations. Not so much statwise, rather the commanding way he ran with the ball. I had my doubts about him being able to be in the same conversation as some of the great backs we have watched at Bama over the years, but after watching him over the last 6 or 7 games of the season, I now put him in the conversation with any of them.
And I echo every sentiment about him already stated in this thread!
By the end of the year Eddie was as good as TR or Ingram ever were. he's just not as durable.
