    A great part that can't go unmentioned in here:

    16 more lbs?! Wow, he just entered a new level of RB in my mind.

    I really can't wait to see how dynamic our backfield is going to be this year.

    Am I the only one somewhat leary about that? I don't know how you can add that much weight without loosing a little speed and quickness. His best trait was his nearly unparalleled breakaway speed. Although I suppose that if he can bust a few more tackles to see more open daylight, then I'd be okay with him being a quarter step slower. That's still plenty enough speed to exploit any open field that comes his way.

    Made a point to talk to Coker today about this Christoph.

    He told me he's now back to his proper playing weight and he hasn't slowed down one bit.

    Adding muscle shouldn't slow him down... Now adding fat? But that would never happen.

    Absolutely - he was one several players that were there and I talked with most of them.
