It's skewed by the how far back some of those statistics go. If you look at a roster of the Oilers for the 1976 season, you'll see the heaviest player on the team was 267 pounds. Curley Culp was only 2 pounds behind at 265.
In fact, if you start from the bottom up, you have to go all the way to the 1990 Broncos that Kragen played on before you even find a roster that had a player at 300 pounds (the 1989 Broncos maxed out at 290). That means that Wade coached the first 14 of those 35 years without even having a 300 pounder on his team's roster, much less playing nose tackle.
