    The guy that skulldug that Saints in the playoffs didn't look 215lbs. Saints players commented about his size and strength after that game. Now Pete Carroll has said a number of things, but look at the number of games he missed because of injuries, and tell me he came back in shape to play at 215lbs?He spent a number of weeks on the injury list and he came back in shape? Not buying anything Pete Carroll has said to anyone in the media.

    Ok man whatever...you posted something inaccurate,it's ok he never played at 250lbs and apparently marshawn lynch's listed weight is the biggest conspiracy in the NFL. Every single listing says 215, articles saying his weight was down and even an article saying he go it up to 230...probably from 215. Jerome Bettis is what a 250lb RB looks like.

    Yes, I said he weighed 240-250lbs! And I'm shocked he is listed at 215, in spite of a number of articles saying or suggesting he bulked up to help in battle through a season. And no, I don't care what Pete Carroll has said because of the number of articles that raise the question.

    Fournette is a unique physical talent, there aren't many kids coming out of college that are 6' feet plus and 235-pounds with 4.4 speed to run away from a defenders, over or through defenders. Now he may not have a long career in the NFL like Petterson, but he has similar ability of OJ Simpson, Chuck Muncie, Bo Jackson, Herschel Walker, Earl Campbell or Eric Dickerson. The list is very short over the past 30 plus years of college football. He is a freak athlete.
    Marshawn Lynch is 5'11" and 215 pounds. Guice is the same size as him now.

    Other than their original size, I don't think they are similar at all. Guice is more elusive and has breakaway speed. He's more similar in comparison to Marshall Faulk in his running style and pretty close in stature, 5'10,211. The major difference is elusiveness and speed in the open field.

    I'm going to settle this here and now. Derrius Guice is the combination of Marshall Faulk and Marshawn Lynch!

    And congratulations to our All-Louisiana team members!
