here's an article about how many NFL players are cutting weight and getting smaller in an effort to adjust to the pass first league. basically, this article is the anti-49ers philosophy. it's kind of staggering how much weight some of these players are losing. gonna make running all over their asses that much easier
As the league's strategists continue to embrace the "pass first" philosophy, they've made some drastic and fundamental changes in recent years to the way offenses operate. As teams de-emphasize the running game, they've been cutting blocking tight ends, and have virtually eliminated the bruising fullback.
