football friday program riiiight now. looks overweight. he's talking about playing dt in rush packages with smith and mccray at the ends. my feeling is that last year grant and smith were asked to bulk up to play the run better. with better lb's behind them, I feel both guys need to get a little lighter to regain their quickness. jmho, though...

Grant isn't the first guy who said the Saints front office asked them to bulk up...I remember Dwight Smith said they made him play 10-15lbs heavier than he wanted to play.

He did it last year some. But we didn't have a very good rush end beside him.

Yeh your right, now with McCray hopefully that will change.

I seriously doubt the front office told these guys to bulk up...I think these guys just got bigger from yrs in the league, it happens.

All I know is that he is still capable of chasing a QB out of bounds for a loss. He is deceptively fast. Id like to see him as RB on goaline given his experience in highschool and breaking H. Walker's records and all.

Grant never said that.

Its our speculation that they asked him to bulk up...we were horrible against the run and then both DE's became enlarged....but it was never clarified by any personnel or player.

Brief Recap

God helped him through the Situation of being stabbed in the neck and is
healed fine

Puts his lack of performance on his shoulders

ankle doing much better

felt like Saints lost their swagger first month of season

rehabbing with Duece who is slimming up and looking good

glad they signed Vilma and Gay, Vilma is the new LB,

McCray brings a lot to the table for the Saints with their scheme of things

Can improve in every area as far as the draft is concerned

needs a high level of defensive play to be successful.
