    Re: Courtney Upshaw's weight issues



    good to hear he isnt 300lbs, still not good to hear he isnt 265 or less. Just think if he didnt balloon up how much easier it would have been to get to that goal weight instead of still needing to shed 10-13lbs more. Hopefully this is the last we hear of this happening. Im not holding my breath on that one though.

    Re: Courtney Upshaw's weight issues

    I didn't read all the posts but He's on the right track and lost 20 lbs. He's trying.

    And who is that #91 causing a fumble in the SB? Yup, he deserves to stay albeit minus a
    few pounds. Note ball in pic after he takes the guy's head off. He has those natl championships and a SB ring. Most college players would kill for his career.

    He was a steal where Ozzie got him according to this pic.

    Some people really are impossible to please. The bottom line is that, with more than 6 weeks to go before the start of the season, his weight is no longer out of control. Yes, it would've been great if his weight had never been an issue to begin with; but the point is that he's recently made a lot of progress toward eliminating that issue.

    As someone else said earlier in the thread, we should consider ourselves lucky if this is the worst news we get during the offseason.

    Re: Courtney Upshaw's weight issues

    What more could be wanted. There was an issue. He explained why the issue was there, acknowledging it and declaring that he would fix it. The coach agreed that it needed to be fixed, but showed confidence that it would.

    It has been fixed, within the time frame that it was said to be fixed.

    Why can't you just accept that Upshaw is meant to be in the 265-270 range? Not everyone is meant to be built like a 250 speed rusher.

    Not sure how you know what weight he was meant to be. If he is 275 and still has a tire around his waste it does't mean he was meant to be that weight. It means he does not have the discipline to get below it. It is not his actual weight that matters but rather if he is in the best possible shape. If he comes in with no tire and a low body fat percentage at 275 that is great.

    It is good that he took getting in shape seriously after showing up at OTAs a mess.

    Hope he took harbs calling out to heart and won't let it happen again.

    The weight fits his playing style. He is heavy handed and country strong. He's never looked perfect and never will. Those guys were never meant to.

    Exactly. Upshaw also explained he had to deal with a personal issue during the offseason which caused a problem with his training and eating.
    When Upshaw starts messing up on the field, then we should start to worry.
    But until that happens, there is no issue to me.

    Double sessions in 90+ with full gear will take off another 10 pounds easy.
    I'm not worried at all.

    Another note: Suggs will actually have to make sure he maintains his weight and stays hydrated since he was ripped already during OTAs.

    Upshaw looks like there wasn't even an issue.

    Nice video, he looks fine to me. After several weeks of training camp he'll get trimmer. People need to relax.

    In that vid Upshaw actually looks quicker than last year.

    Re: Courtney Upshaw's weight issues

    Says he can feel the difference in the weight loss. Gotta hand it to HARBs,
    dog house or no dog house he sure knows how to whip these guys in shape
    and they wore down SF in 4th qtr of SB with superior conditioning. YOu could
    just see it as Joe moved the offense downfield and in the goal line stand.

    In his first Ravens camp ever, Dumervil just said he's in the best shape ever.
    He came in to impress everyone and did.

    He looks much better than he did at the OTAs. He is not the fastest or quickest guy so he needs to be as lean as he possibly can. He looks like he can shed a few more. I am sure that will happen during training camp.
