I understand what you're saying but science says that most 340 lb NT do not have the physical stamina to play 1000+ snaps a season and on average are limited to 300-400 snaps played effectively. Of course there are exceptions to every rule Wilfork and Ngata being two.
Wade had Jammal Williams IIRC at San Diego and he was a big guy . I think Wade's defense isn't much to write home about . If you get inside the 20 yd line , you're going to score . Could that be a symptom of having to light of guys in the middle .
