View Full Version : Does anyone believe Jamarcus Russell is only 260lbs?

After watching the game I thought their boy looked a little on the husky side of 260. So I sent a crack team of researchers to work on the Internet to investigate. Here are 3 photos as a means of comparison. YOU make the call!

Vonnie Holliday - 6'6" 285lbs - should be noticeably bigger than JR:

Tony Scheffler - 6'5" 255lbs - should be about the same size:

The man himself - 6'6" 260lbs?

And for Hogan, Jared Lorenzon, 6' 4" 285

I think he looks more like a lineman.

How big was the "Hefty Lefty"? That's who he reminds me of.

Jared Lorenzen?

He was 288

Russell definitely gives him a run for his money

I felt bad for that DB down field getting blocked by him.

Added Jared Lorenzon for Hogan. He is 285 and two inches shorter, and honestly he does not look any broader than Russell.

One of the articles on Lorenzon called him "The Pilsbury Throwboy." (I lol'd)

They could run a sneaky wildcat by just moving him into a O-Lineman spot and snapping to the back.

Ha! That guy frickin' killed me everytime I saw him on the field Ha!

I remember reading or hearing a story about the Hefty Lefty when he reported to his first rookie mini camp with the Giants. He walked into the locker room and all the offensive lineman came over and said, "You must be Chris Snee glad to have you on board." To which Jared replied "Sorry I'm not Chris Snee I'm Jared Lorenzen a QB." All the o-linemen burst out laughing. LOL Ha!

Too bad he has now lost the title of Fattest QB to ever play in the NFL.

Seriously. Russell is a hell of a lead blocker!

Looks like ~300

Phill Mickelson? Definately 300+

Muscle is denser than fat.

Obviously JaMarcus has a high body fat percentage. He could still be 260. It's just a flabby 260.

The guy has the accuracy of a shotgun at a hundred yards, but he can heave it a mile with the flick of a wrist. God help us if he ever develops any kind of touch and accuracy.

He is 6'6....no way he is 260....look at how thick his legs are.

He is easily over three bills.

Lorenzen wasn't too bad himself. Check out the hustle on this play:

I was watching the MN game with a Raider fan, and he commented how 'slimmer' JMR looked. I'd say he's come down from 310 last year to 3 even...

There's that infamous pic of a bloated Russell floating around on this board somewhere......an obivous photoshop that now looks like it's become the truth

Hell no.
His head alone must weight 150.

I don't think he is 260 but more like a muffin short of 300. I do think he has to be the worst starting QB in the league though. He has terrible footwork and looks funny as hell throwing swing passes off one leg.

I don't really care what he weighs. I don't expect him to do a lot of running in their offense and, at that size, he'll probably shrug off a lot of safeties and corners that try to blitz him.

The question is whether he's fat and I wouldn't know that without seeing him in the locker room topless. Some guys can carry weight better than others.

Fatakowski still kicks field goals with that mammoth gut just fine.

I can't believe I just agreed with Bob...

But the Scheff comparison doesn't work since tony is all muscle. Jamarcus is a pile...and 260 might be a little light but I bet he's lighter than he looks
