Watch: How Many Defenders Does it Take to Stop Eddie Lacy? Green Bay Packers' running back Eddie Lacy is like a tank out on the field and it takes way more than one defender to stop Lacy in his tracks. At 5'-11" and 231 pounds, Lacy has moves and spins and tackles to challenge his defenders with before he can be taken down. Just watch Lacy plow his way through the Atlanta Falcons' defense. Lacy started this NFL season off a little slow, but has made up for it by scoring 11 touchdowns so far this season along with racking up over 1,200 total yards. We'll look for those numbers to increase as the regular season plays out. Note to opposing defenses is you need to wake up very early to stop Lacy when he is in animal mode.
