    I think that one goal of the off season would be to get some for the heifers on the Patriot to lose some serious weight. Mankins had a horrible game and I have got to believe that if he tamed that gigantic gut he would not have had as much trouble handling the speed rushers. Vince must be well over 400 pounds and Warren was sporting a basketball. And Light should not be dancing around with no shirt with that big bowl of jello. Koppen looks like the Stay Puff man.

    In the old days some teams had a problem with drinking; today the Patriots look like they have a problem with cheeseburgers.

    LOL! No. This is the funniest thread today.

    It's the Red Sox who need to lose some weight over the course of the season, not big football players.

    Greetings,
    I have to laugh with you on that one. I noticed this on the DL in the Baltimore game. Many of them would win their match ups but had too much weight on them, which slowed them down to bring down Flacco. I saw this mainly with Love and Warren. But then again Vince moves incredibly well for someone his size and is the perfect size for a 3-4 NT. And from what I remember Ted Washington was bigger than Vince.

    Perhaps Gisele can become the Pats' bulimia coach?

    These guys workout 6+ hours a day. The only way for a lot of them to get the required calories is to eat absolute **** food. This helps their bodies not deteriorate but in the process it results in guts and bad cholesterol.

    I don't know why but whenever I saw Wilfork... I thought of Gary Larson's cartoon of the deer gut:

    There is a whole herd of bears with deer guts on the Patriots....

    With Mankins his gut is so huge and his arms are so short you have to wonder how he can reach anyone....he must do a lot of flaying at the air.

    I would like to know what their REAL weight is. Vince has to be over 400 and the rest must be pushing it. None of the linemen except Carter looks like they have missed many meals.

    This would have some validity if not all linemen looked like that.

    Hey, being huge is part of the job. Just as long as they do their job is all that counts.

    The D-Linemen were gassed in the second half. Carrying around 80 pounds of blubber in that stuffy environment cannot be good. They should all train with Andre Carter instead of Colonel Sanders this offseason...

    Can't take the slightest criticism of the Patriots eh? Well someone has to call those porkers out; they are supposed to be professional athletes not competitive eaters. If I was mean I would paraphrase Joan Rivers "Wilfork has more chins than a chinese phonebook" but I would never say that...

    Ted Washington was the largest player I ever saw in a Patriots uniform (Height: 6-5 Weight: 375) but he carried it fairly well. As Ted Johnson said "You could project a movie on his butt". He would take on two blockers and stop them cold. The hardest hit I ever saw Ricky Williams take was delivered by Ted Johnson; it was like a cement truck running him over.

    Nothing wrong with warranted criticism. I'm going to assume you grasped at this straw because, like many of us, you're frustrated and pissed off. But, at the risk of being cruel, I have to offer the opinion (and it's mine only) that this is the most mindless, baseless thread I've ever seen on this board and that covers some Louisiana Purchase-sized territory (no size pun intended). You've gotta do better than that.

    You're not criticizing the Patriots. You're singling out a few Patriots players for something that isn't remotely a problem. You're throwing a fit about something that is completely normal and acceptable in the NFL. You're refusing to look at the scope of this "problem" and making up your own rules for what you think should be acceptable, but in reality is completely and utterly stupid.

    FredFromDartmouth has been confirmed to live in Dartmouth but never actually went to Dartmouth. A brief sit down with his mother also revealed that he has never picked up or even seen a football in real life.

    FredFromDartmouth, there is another forum that is much more suited for idiots like you. It's called "radio."
