    Yes, this.

    Or make him an H-back/fullback, so he could run straight to the hole and blast anything in his way. Plus it would be funny as he!! to see him try to catch a check-down from Ben and then go all ballistic when it bounces off his meathooks.

    Could a 350-400lb Sumo fighter take on 2-3 blockers at the point of attack and clog the middle of the field?

    here's our NT...

    I am a fan of sumo, and I doubt that any of them would have success in the NFL. First of all, TBH, the quality of the athlete in pro sumo is probably leagues below NFL level. In other words, in terms of athletic ability, I think every team has at least one (and most likely multiple guys) who could go in and be a champion there.

    Of course, the rub is the level of dedication (menial) tasks would weed out all but the most mentally strong. It's a tremendously selfless culture, one that Americans have very little clue about.

    BUt I do always wonder why certain things aren't incorporated into football. For example, all sumos can do the splits, even that fat guy in the pic above. It's believed that it helps in terms of avoiding injury, gaining leverage. I wonder why that's not the case for a position like Nose Tackle.
    Guys and gals,
    If you play fantasy football, go to the FF forum here and read my thread. I'd appreciate some feedback on it.

    Sean Mahan was way to small to be an Olineman. I remember see him standing next to Matt Starks (who is really huge I'll grant) and he looked like a big tight end. I think I remember him being listed at 300 but there was no way....

    Interestingly, Mahan has some wrestling experience in his background (although not of the sumo variety).
