We're not massive, but we aren't small either...

That's a misconception that I see has become an epedemic...

Most of the 4-3 teams around the leauge don't have 330lb DT's getting a bunch of tick...Most teams, in fact, have DT's maybe a little bigger (and in a lot of cases a bit smaller) than TJ and Okoye...

I'm not sure where you're getting those weights from, but on NFL.com they have Demeco as 250lbs...

Now I'm not saying he's 250lbs, but if the .com has Demeco listed as a little bigger than he actually is, other players weights are probably slightly exaggerated too....

Anywho...Demeco isn't much smaller than a lot of 4-3 MLB's...and our DT's aren't either...

In fact we are very average....

Everyone was drooling over Frank Okam, but not a lot of 4-3 teams have DT's that big...I don't get the obsession...
