Montee v. Eddie

Postby Cameron Connors » Mon Aug 19, 2013 4:09 pm

It's still very early in their careers, but UW's own Montee Ball has been getting some questionable reviews nationally compared to mostly flattery for 'Bama's Lacy...aside from the whole "Eddie's Fat" campaign.

Luckily for Ball, his competition for the starting job in Denver is doing him nothing but favors, so, barring injury, we'll likely get to see both rookies a lot this year.

Compare that to the glowing portrait of Lacy that Pete "Random Prediction" Prisco posted today:

There was a lot of talk about the Packers targeting Ball or Le'Veon Bell leading up to the draft, but so far Lacy has looked like a steal despite questions over a toe-fusion surgery.

Predictions as to who will end up the better rookie RB by year's end?
