Que? Even in his day he was undersized. Randy White went 260 lbs - 9 pro-bowls, 7 1st team all pro, hall of fame. The Cowboys drafted him with the idea of moving him to LB because he was too small for DT.
Ted Washington mountain size in any day was between 365 and 400 pounds, 4 Pro Bowls.
Jamal Williams mountain size at 348, 4 Pro Bowls
Jay Ratliff relatively "light" at 293, 4 Pro Bowls
Ratliff and his elite skills are definitely an outlier even in Wade's career...............and Earl Mitchell is no Ratliff, nor has he shown anything that can make one believe that he can ever be a Ratliff.
The Big Man in the middle has shown superiority for a reason, the same reason we need one on this team. Wade needs to stop trying to prove a null equation.
Three examples and you choose to throw out the light one (and frankly defined out the other light guy which would have tied things). To me that looks like Wade working with either style and when the talent is there it shines.
There are two possible conclusions here (1) Wade doesn't want a big body or (2) Wade doesn't have as much influence over the draft/free agency as people claim.
