And to think he probably accomplished all of this (at least his part) in less than optimal shape. Also I would've been ticked when the team signed Elvis for the simple fact that he's taking my spot. Apparently Up seems to be pretty happy about being a backup.

    Bottom line is the kid does not know what hard work is and while he seems to be likable and stays out of trouble he doesn't seem to have the drive to sustain his success when times get tough.

    Hope I am wrong.
    Whether this tweet story is true or not...to think he has everything he needs at age 23 is crazy. The dude would be broke in 30 minutes if he doesn't put 3-5 years of quality football together, starting now.

    Yes he does.

    Go back and look at his timeline. Dude loves food and talks about it often.

    Good thing the team values nutrition. Now that he's at Owings Mills, he won't have a choice but to eat healthy.

    Re: Courtney Upshaw's weight issues

    The first thing we might want to do is accept the reality that Upshaw is not built or meant to truly play below 265.

    Second, the diet is far more difficult to mold than people are letting on. It's all in the mind. Ray didn't start eating healthy himself, until Sharpe joined the team. He'd already been in the league for about four years.

    And that's why I said according to Steve Davis. If he reported it I can speak on it.

    I could care less if you get pissed off. As a matter of fact why should I take your word that he doesn't tweet about his excursions?

    I took out your last sentence. That's not called for.

    He's always posting pics of takeaways and stuff, you appear to be the one talking out of your ass

    Upshaw is one of my favorite players. I like his physicality and the fact that there is always a chance of a forced fumble the way he hits.

    I hope he gets it together because I like rooting for him.

    It's great that he lost 20 pounds but why the hell is he ballooning up for the 2nd straight year? He better be careful because as he ages it won't be so easy to go up to 295 and back down to 275 right before camp.

    Good to hear.

    Sounds like there isn't a weight issue now and his conditioning is good. Being a rookie last year and just getting established as a pro, give him a break. He's learning how to be a pro and take care of himself. If he balloons up again, then he didn't learn from this year.

    It took Suggs more than a couple of years to get to a point where he had his off season conditioning on lock-down.

    Training Camp hasn't even started yet, and Upshaw is already almost down to his playing weight from last season.

    Excellent point about Suggs. Hopefully Upshaw will follow that role model. Once Suggs got it together he ended up DPOY. It would get sweet if Upshaw keeps that Ravens tradition going.
