Eddie Lacy

Even though the Green Bay Packers had zero guys make the Pro Bowl — primarily because the Pro Bowl is fucking joke — they did have two guys named to the All-Pro team. Running back Eddie Lacy and guard Josh Sitton were named second-team All-Pro.

The All-Pro team is voted on by people who cover football, whereas the Pro Bowl is a popularity contest voted on by fans, players and coaches.

Sitton was the guy who we thought was the biggest snub from the Pro Bowl (along with Jordy Nelson). He was the Packers best offensive lineman this season and excelled after moving from right to left guard.

The Packers’ line was often dominant in the running game and the left side of the line held up great in pass protection, even though Sitton was playing next to a rookie left tackle.

Lacy, meanwhile, piled up 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns as a rookie, despite missing almost two full games. He also made the Packers offense go while Aaron Rodgers was out.

Well deserved.
