So this is like Waters just taking it easy.
LOL. These guys are freaks.
There might be more to playing OLine in the NFL than weight room strength.
2009 World's Strongest Athlete Contest
1st Place: Mackenzy Bernadeau – Carolina Panthers O-line
This is impressive
While I like to hear about him being impressive in the weight room, I think I am more concerned about his leg strength, footwork and stamina.
Here were the Top 5 in the Pro Division:
Mackenzy Bernadeau – Carolina Panthers O-line
2.Brian Cushing – Houston Texans linebacker
3.Kevin Brock – Carolina Panthers tight end
4.Lance Ball – Indianapolis Colts running back
5.Greg Isdaner – Dallas Cowboys O-line
Does not sound like he had top notch competition. Greg who?
There is always one of these guys, usually a few of them around during combine time. Complaining that a certain lineman is to weak because he only did 18 reps of 225, but he (the guy sitting at his computer) did 15 one time.
The story mentions nothing about him maxing out, just states how easily he tossed around 400 something pounds. Someone warming up with 315 is no joke. An expert such as you, Don C, should know this.
Just looking forward to Waters upgrading our line, he will get better each week as he rounds into shape.
Certainly there's more to OL play than bench press strength. I'd bet money Phil Costa has one of the best benches on the team and I wouldn't want him anywhere near the field in a meaningful game.
Agree, Costa should be in the stands holding hands with the Hulk's daughter.
fwiw was talking with my neighbor yesterday and he was saying he heard on Ben & Skin that Waters maxed out at 650
So, how do you feel about Water's play in KC?
Bench press is great, but show me what the guy squats. Having a strong base is more important to an OL in my opinion.
Shame he couldn't start that 1st week thou yeah?
One thing I found odd was he doesn't appear to bend and get in a stance he basically stands wonder if he has flexibility issues but he certainly is not lacking in strength so I guess it's not an issue
What's great is his awareness and calmness he's always looking around seeing where he can help but not in a frenetic fashion just calmly moving around
Hope Waters is in good enough shape to start against the Rams.
Jerry Jones: Brian Waters ready to take every snap; Anthony Spencer ‘real close to right’
Esp his footwork.
Just hope Waters is ready to pass block and open some holes against the Rams.
