NFL players trying to slim down.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444375104577591140029897890.html

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. As these offensive players are replaced by smaller, speedier models, teams that have trotted out a defense full of bulky, even somewhat portly, players are watching helplessly as these speedy new offenses run past them, as if they were little more than blobs of peanut butter.
CRUSH THEM, SEE THEM DRIVEN BEFORE OUR D, AND HEAR THE LAMENTATION OF THEIR WOMEN!!!
If that be the case, those unbalanced line formations and the signing of Jacobs looks real good right about now.

Imagine from center to the right of the line

Goodwin, Boone, L.Davis, A.Davis, V. Davis

Miller @ FB

Jacobs @ HB

Thats a lot of manhood.

I'd put Iupati over there too
Ginn looks like he put on a little bit of weight, which is a good thing. I think Crabtree lost some weight maybe to help increase his speed.
