    Exactly. He looks like just another fat guy but his strength was off the charts.

    Everyone on the Patriots say that Wilfork is one of the best athletes on the team. He can make moves that guys his size just shouldn't be able to do.

    Cody's problem isn't his weight. It's his lack of skill. At this point that's not going to improve. He is what he is which is why he needs to be a backup and someone better needs to be starting.

    The thing is that Wilfork and Hampton basically look like they have bear blood in them. Cody doesn't. He does, however, have one of the nicest biggest set of tits I've ever seen.

    Not sure if he will get to the training room anytime soon. I believe I read on the Ravens homepage that he was to have hip surgery shortly and will miss all work outs up until training camp starts. If true, that does not bode well for Cody or the Ravens.

    Wilfork, Hampton, guys like that have a different body type than Cody. Those guys are fat, but they are solid. Cody is soft marshmallow with no muscle mass.

    Cody hasn't got the mentality for a fight.....he looks like he'd rather hang with the second team.

    I've already wrote off Cody. He'll be on the team this year just because he's cheap. Hopefully he's decent enough to just be a backup.

    Yeah, at least in all likelyhood, we wont be seeing Cody starting at NT anymore, we'll be having Ngata at NT destroying centers and guards, while Chris Canty and Arthur Jones will have more room to collapse the pocket and stuff the run. The Dline is going to be one of the main strengths this year, and may well be one of the best in the NFL.

    And btw, I really think this is more than a technique issue. Sure, I think he certainly has to work on that. But I also think this is indeed a conditioning issue.

    People like to bring up guys like Hampton and Wilfolk, but when you look at them, they look a lot more solid up top, and look more conditioned even if they are fat. Cody just looks flat out soft, and appears to have a really weak lower body. He needs to hit the weights and pack on some pounds of muscle first and for most. Losing weight is useless for a guy like him, he needs to convert that fat into muscle.

    Re: Cody Played at 325 Last Season

    Id prefer him at 350lbs. He at 325 isnt strong, he is not muscle strong or hard. He lost too much weight. He dominated in college at 360lbs, tired of the Ravens trying to change everydamn players bodies. When it works out let me know. What are they trying to do win a swimsuit competition or football games? At his weight with his muscle tone, he is more like a 270Lb player. Some players are just better left alone and if they play fat so be it. Let him be Sam Adams and Siragusa fat at NT and be done with it. He lost too much strength with the weight like Ngata did the year before. The strength and conditioning coach needs a chill pill, sure get him stronger in the weight room, but lets not worry about his physical physique. Look at Willfork, guy is 370lbs but dominant and Hampton during his prime was the same way.

    Dominating in college against guys who are working for UPS now isn't the same as being effective in the NFL. The guy is soft. He has always been soft, if he loses more weight, he will still be soft, just smaller. He needs to work his legs, chest, back and triceps way more. That ain't happening if he is awaiting surgery still on April 5th. He will come in to camp weaker, fatter, and more out of shape than ever. He won't be in game shape( as he has defined it for himself, not how I would define it) until late November probably. Pffft.

    I was imagining a repeat of Siragusa and Adams when they drafted Cody.Steal of the draft.No team would run against the Ravens.

    So wrong.

    I don't think all the PED's in the world could save Cody's career. Man is he terrible...
