- St Louis appears to have elevated Zac Stacy as their featured running back. Zac Stacy is the Rams version of Deangelo Williams at 5'8 and 215 pounds. This is actually an advantage for the Panthers defense, having faced Deangelo in practice throughout the week. Like Deangelo, Stacy is looking to find space to run and won't break many tackles. The Panthers linebackers have the speed and tackling ability to neutralize him provided they keep him contained on the edges.
UMMMMM...Zac Stacy is 3rd in the league in yards after contact only behind Adrian Peterson and Ben Tate.
Not saying he is going to run all over the Panthers but the guy has done a nice job breaking tackles even if it is a small sample size. He is strong with a lot of lower body strength and was known for his ability to break tackles and turn loses into gains in college also.
