I dont think there is and this isn't thinking as a Homer either. I honestly cant think of anyone else in any sport near his measurables:

6'7" 295 pounds. 4.66 40 yard dash, 10-foot broad jump, a 40.5-inch vertical leap and 35 reps in the 225-pound bench press.

That is just plain beastly for a man of his stature.

I saw the guy at one of last years practices when the team wasn't wearing
pads. The guy has an amazing physique. And his body fat must be in a category of its own for really big men like him in the NFL.
And even though he had tremendous muscular definition and proportionality, the most striking thing about his appearance to me was that he really looked more like a basketball player than a football player.

I was behind him in line at Petsmart. We chatted about dogs, he has pitbulls (I hope he has a good fence). Anyway, I can vouch for his physique.

Homophobe is defined as someone with a "fear or hatred of homosexuals."

Not sure who in the "religious forum" you're referencing. But I don't know of anyone that frequents the rel. forums that has a fear OR hatred of homosexuals.

But I suspect you weren't really trying to make a point.
Just another obscure reference to "those religious folks."

Right?

I gotta second all of that. A belief that homosexuality is a sin is not homophobia.

Ideally, I'd prefer to leave out both the pictures AND the comments about "gay" stuff.

What about Sean Jones? Not sure how much he weighed or anything.

After meeting Mario after a few practices I'd have to agree he's built like a brick shithouse.

Greg Lloyd was a beast. Couple that with a black belt in karate and you have a deadly weapon.

Maybe someone can talk Mario into taking karate lessons. It'll help with his hand speed.

No offense to Mario, he's our guy after all, but dude would not have stood a chance against this player:
