    once again Rivers is doing all the lifting while Clipboard Jesus sits and supervises everything:D

    Here's to banking that these 2 giants may very well be the 2 who protect Rivers all year

    That comment on Matthews reminds me that last week Darren had some draft prospect on the air and when asked if he met any players while doing a visit, he said he met Matthews and commented about how surprisingly huge Matthews was

    If he's still fast, that extra muscle will keep him healthier through the season. Nothing wrong with adding weight if you can keep your athleticism high.

    So does more muscle make you less, or more likely to fumble? (half-joking)

    Fumbling is mostly a result of how you hold the ball, rather than strong you are. His guns could rival 1970s Schwarzenegger and he'd still fumble the ball carrying it low and away.

    Some great pix there, tks for posting them. Mathews does look extra big, must got the same CVS as Merriman. Who is that in the pic with Gaither?, is it Vasquez or Green?.

    Matthews definitely looks yoked up. I guess last year's little embarrassment regarding his conditioning served as motivation. :tup:

    I wonder who is strength/conditioning coach was during the offseason? Hopefully no one on the Chargers' staff. :rolleyes:

    I think that's Ellison, not Stuckey. :)

    If you mean the guy in the middle with the arms the size of my waist...I'm pretty sure it is Stuckey. :)

    #25 in that picture is Ellison. That is the 2009 draft class, which is why he's standing next to English, Vasquez, Green etc... Stuckey was 2010.

    hehehehehehehehe, you guys are killin'me here !!! [​IMG]

    As Matti has correctly stated, Ellison and Stuckey were drafted a year apart, so Dubby is 2 outta 2 on naming players, but in his defence, you dont often see many pics of these guys without a helmet on, so we'll cut the little leprecian some slack here. ;)

    and also a pity Ellison had an addiction to the "Dr Chao supplied painkillers" he was caught with by the cops, in a farking schoolzone no less, I actually thought this kid could play a bit and was disappointed he didn't cut it.

    Thats the key to this whole "added muscle" issue Ike.

    If it does help him ward off those niggly injuries and doesn't hinder his speed and agility factors, then its a good thing.

    But if it slows him down at all, then all that extra muscle will be nothing more than a bigger target for LB's to aim at and pulverise.

    Be interesting to see how he looks running the pill in preseason.

    With all the talk about that quack Dr. Chao, I think "running the pill" is a poor choice of words. ;)

    Did they give him Toniu Fonoti's old one's ???

    Those could easily house a small village of Pintubi pigmy's on the Amazon comfortably, I'd reckon.
