He looks like the guy from Adam Sandler's version of "The Longest Yard." "He broke ed my nose coach!"

Hey, I don't care if he stuffs french fries up his nose, and eats em later, if he can grab Vick by the neck, and shake him around I say, let Shrek do his thing.

As far as the weight goes, if he works better with it, then leave it alone. Sometimes guys losing weight actually hurts their game, because they are not used to playing that light. If he's as thick in the head as you guys say he is, he might freak out, and think he's shrinking or something.

Let the boy eat! "Mongo likes candy!"

What's popular is not always right, and what's right is not always popular.....

I want to but it really depends on my health. I'll try to remember to let you know.

I mean it sounds like the kid is a specimen, but even at OSU he never got playing time, even when he was passing classes (which obviously didn't last long). Does that say anything? Maybe not, because he was just a freshman, but any guy that size should be making an impact. I'm hoping he can go into camp and really turn some heads, not because of his size, but because of his work ethic and his play on the field. I don't know if that will happen, but it could.

Also, reading the profile of him at NFL.com makes him sound VERY immature. First of all, Ok State is not known for its great academics, and an athlete there I would imagine would HAVE TO TRY AND FAIL to actually flunk out. But I'll be pulling for this kid when he puts on that black and gold; like somebody said, playing DT is a good position for guys less concerned with thinking and more concerned with hitting. Sure, there are plays, but really it's *snap* and "go hit that guy."

I hear everybody talking about his weight issues, but IMO his weight is not that big a deal, to me it's his stamina. I don't give a dam how big he is, if he can consistently play without being pulled out after every other play, than his weight is definitely not an issue. Man, when I look at that picture I look at the size of this dude arms, his shoulders, he's a massive beast of a kid. If he last through camp he'll contribute greatly to the middle of our defense.

EVERYTHING with this kid is an issue- maturity, weight, grades...

BUT, his potential is absolutely unlimited. We need to have someone in his ear every day reminding him of the difference between the NFL and being a bouncer at a bar in Mississippi. I say room him with Grant or Smith and have them mentor him night and day.

It would be a crime to let all of this potential go down the drain.

I think that's what they're intentions are, to room him with a vet so he can see how it's done from a professional stand point.

The Big Problem

is making sure this kid stays our of trouble. Ya know he was cut from Oaklahoma for 'Conspiracy to comit robbery'. They need to get his ass in line and hopefully he realizes someone is taking a chance on him and giving him an oppitunity so its up to him to make the best of it.
