This has absolutely nothing to do with disdain for Blount. He’s personally not my style back due to his lack of pass catching ability, but I have nothing against him. I just think giving major carries to a 30+ back coming off a career high in touches is short sighted.

But if you want to learn about his weight clause, it’s not hard to find.

So, he's on the team, should they NOT use him for what they picked him up for--short yardage situations? Might help them actually win a game. Is that too short-sighted?

I'm sure I can find the weight clause but, until you've mentioned it, I hadn't heard anything about it. So, enlighten me, why does he have the weight clause? Has he been unfit in the past or just a little heavier than they'd like. There is a difference you know...

Well, considering I think that quickness/acceleration are more important to short yardage running than size, you’re probably asking the wrong person.

I don’t recall saying he was unfit. Just not the model of fitness. Mikey has mentioned several times that he’s at 265 this year. Not sure where he heard that. But as to why he has the clause? It’s because they want to incentivize him for not being fatter than he was last year.

He's officially listed at 250 (I don't know where the hell 265 comes from either). His contract offered him an extra $50,000 to show up at training camp weighing between 240-245. This obviously shows the Eagles wanted him a few pounds lighter, but not too light. I can't find anything official on whether he got the money or not, there was speculation considering the official training camp guide had him at 250.

I was high on the signing because we got him for cheap, and it gave us a heavy RB who could pick up short yardage and wear down the defense, something I don't remember us ever really having. Nobody wants to tackle the guy, as we saw yesterday. I think I could bring down Smallwood if he ran right at me.

Well, by definition, if you say he is not the model of fitness, you are saying he is unfit.

I have not seen photos of him without a shirt on or even in street clothes. So I cannot comment on whether he is fat or not--you seem to think he is fat. Now, at 6' and (listed) 250, he could be fat or he could be muscular and more fit than you seem to think he can be. Personally, I'm 6' tall and walk around at about 240 normally. I am muscular and nobody I know who's seen me thinks I'm fat. It is quite possible to be that height/weight and be fit fit, it is also quite possible to be that height/weight and be fat. My guess is he's somewhere in between. Now, I also don't have the kind of speed a RB would need but I also have never been fleet of foot.

What I'm saying is, you seem to be making broad assumptions here. But, if you watched his performance on Sunday--I'm pretty sure you did--and don't think he was a benefit to the team the way he was running, then you are crazy.

I simply said he might not have the endurance to be on the field the whole game. You can twist that however you’d like.

I would say that your idea is the only one that makes sense short of Pederson being overly experimental. They may have have been resting him between uses thinking he needs to get his games legs for later in the year.

I'm not twisting anything. You said (essentially) he is not fit with no evidence to support it. I just called you out on it.

Haha. For real. Why is it unreasonable to assume a guy that is likely 250-265lbs gets winded after barreling over a bunch of other large men.

He’s a big, older (in football years) dude. He had a career high in touches last year. But sure. Let’s run him into the ground in week 3 in a game we should have dominated.

No, you all were, with one or two other exceptions. The punishment he deals out to tacklers more than makes up for any step he's lost. He's about the same size as Mike Alstott was. Nobody tires out or is scared of tackling Smallwood. Maybe the KC game would've gone differently if Blount didn't register 1 official touch.

Because there is absolutely no evidence to suggest this is what happened/happens. YOU are the one who keeps talking about how out of shape he is. If there is evidence to support your theory, then yeah, I can see your point. But, there is none.
