    Here it is, Frank....... From Dale Lolleys' blog "NFL From The Sidelines"...

    According to Jim Wexell of SteelCityInsider.com, Casey Hampton weighed in at an impressive 365 pounds when he showed up at training camp, 25 more than the team wanted him at and 40 more than his listed weight.

    holy crap 40 lbs?!?! how can anyone lose all that in a month and change?
    The Hollywood 48 hour miracle diet, of course! All day, every day for a month. Or else liposuction.

    instead of doing 8 sprints of 100 yds I'd rather see the lineman do 40 reps on the sled and I'd make them push it 20 yds each time. there's enough lineman on the team that it would be tough but not impossible.

    Yeah, I'm kinda like the John Turturro butler character from Mr. Deeds (or the sidler from Seinfeld). Although I don't have an unnatural obsession with feet (or canker sores that would prevent me from being able to use Binaca).

    Re: Hampton begins process of shedding weight

    Why did Casey Hampton wear a throwback Sam Cassell Rockets jersey to training camp?



    He looked more like a different alien, though...unfortunately, I think he ate this one.

    Not defending Snack on this at all but Troy has a point. Hampton's job is to plug up holes and stuff the run, not drop back and cover wide receivers or tight ends. Having lineman do these drills is like asking the db's to bench 315 for 20 reps. What's the point?

    But I agree with NKy that late in the game (and later in the season) conditioning will be a factor for everyone. I just hope it doesn't turn out like last year when a tough training camp led to the obvious fatigue the players were showing towards the end of the season.

    As far as Casey losing 25-40 lbs, it won't be a big deal. Speaking from experience, weight loss is all relative. Snack losing 25-40 would be like an average sized guy losing 10-15 lbs. No problem.

    really, you dont think it will be tough for casey to lose that much weight by the time the season starts? i know nothing about dieting or dropping pounds but it seems extremely hard.

    People might call him fat, but Casey is carrying a ton of muscle under all that "insulation". And the more muscle you have, the more fat and calories your body burns off, even when relaxed. Now that he's back on on a conditioning program and (hopefully) eating cleaner, the weight will drop off. And again, I'm not defending Casey at all. He should have been doing this throughout the entire off season.
