Some players, in general, just need to be bigger. Ngata tried to slim down and it backfired. Cody tried to slim down and it backfired. Ray tried to slim down and the injuries started piling up(Well, not that he was really big to begin with).
It's not for everybody.
Our defense isn't going to rise-and-fall on the play of Courtney Upshaw.
Let's hope that this is the worst OS news that we have to absorb.
When a player gets older, it is harder to keep the weight off. For Upshaw, 23, it should be "a piece of cake"...Hmmm, maybe I should rephrase that :laugh: ... Bc
It might be concern as he gets older (the end of his rookie contract), but not now.
He sucks! I hated when he was collapsing the entire edge and sending runningbacks through the air when he was completely knocking them off their feet.
I HATE THAT!!!
And that hussle when he missed the tackle, got off the ground, ran after the runningback and caused the fumble in the super bowl, THAT WAS AWFUL!!!
I don't know if I could handle any more of that kind of AWFUL PLAY.
And with him being a member of the Ravens for around 14 months is just wearing on me something terrible!
Just think, a player gets drafted, comes in from college and plays a 20 game season.
As he begins his second year, he is still learning the ropes.
But he helped bring in a championship.
I am surely not going to jump the gun on this guy this early.
He has produced so far on the field. That's the place he earns his money.
I'm going to wait for him to go through training camp.
Must be off season.

Moral of the story: Let them do what they do.
And in looking back, I see what he brought to the table for the Ravens last season when they said he was overweight then, too.
I like the fact that as a young guy, he produced.
And what he brought, was HIS game, collapsing the edge.
Which was exactly what he did in college.
I'm waiting to see whether he has learned anything from the veterans on getting into shape AFTER this second season.
For a young college player to come right in and go through that 20 game grueling schedule...he did fine.
I'm glad he was able to get some rest for his body and heal.
I can't imagine what going through training camp, 4 preseason games, and then that 20 game season does to one's body after just coming out of college. I only know what a short college season did to mine.

Harbs says Courtney Upshaw eats too much and the wrong foods but says he's playing well and will be in "fighting shape"
