And I would disagree Ben is such a slob. He couldn't play his sandlot football without being able to run well enough to make his escapes.
I agree. The only real "fitness" we need from a QB are the ability to take hits and the ability to have enough stamina to throw as well in the first quarter as they do in the 4th quarter.

As for Ben, no doubt he can run and escape. However in this day and age of Jersey Shore people have made the mistake of confusing athletic prowess with weather or not someone has a six pack. I think that was more of the point I was trying to make.

Most athletes eat much more calories than the recommended daily intake for non-athletes. They simply burn up more calories due to the nature of their work. That does not mean type or quality does not matter, i.e Doritos and chips vs. freshly cooked bison meat, but the point is athletes devour more food than the average guy does.

I'll start taking guesses. It's either Fred Davis, Brian Orakpo, Ryan Kerrigan, or D.Hall (I'm only including him here on status alone, if two FB's can make it a guy like D.Hall definitely could)

Would that be a Hot Pocket?

The only guy I can see making it is Rak.

I agree. Even though IMO Fletcher is a better player.

Re: nfl top 100 2012

that's interesting considering you normally want to handicap a player's results by the one outside of the bell curve. atleast that's my inherent internal function. it's a different paradigm to look at best individual performances at the micro scale. i like it.

Now compare this to some of the best 'in shape' QB's.


McNabb's problems have almost always come from his lack of fundamentals not his weight. And this goes for other QB's as well. For example all the bicep curls in the world aren't going to stop Rex Grossman from fumbling once every 18 snaps.

QB is virtually the only position in team sports where you're better off sitting in a dark room in front of a TV or projector then you are spending time in the weight room.
So you're saying it was a mistake to draft the most athletic quarterback in the draft in the past 8-10 years... Crap. All those picks wasted!!!

Seeing as how I didn't watch a single episode of the top 100, I'd like to ask where you got that idea from?

thought they suggested at least a second redskin was on the list
