But realistically, getting "in the way" is *often* enough to spring the play for more yardage. Lelie did just that last year, getting QG a TD against KC. Lelie also screwed the pooch on a big run for RD by blocking badly in the back.
His willingness to stick his nose in there is a result of attitude not the extra 5-10 pounds.
I'm not comparing Lelie to Eddie Mac. Nor am I saying his weight gain accounts for all the potential for future blocking success. I'm saying that if he's bigger and stronger, that helps produce the attitude that he can do it. I'm still scratching my head as to why he hasn't figured all this out by now, or more to the point, why someone didn't make him do it.
