  • Mart B tipping the scales

    anyone see the Q and A from OTA's with Mike Pope?



    Q: How is Martellus coming along?
    A: ...... He weighed in at 291 pounds last week. So I think that is probably a little too big for his legs to carry. We run a lot more than he might have been accustomed to. Plus we are in the middle of a weight program and the combination of those two things has caused him, especially, to have some problems with his hamstrings. He canít afford to miss time, either. Because he needs every possible rep he can take.


    So...291lbs is a pretty big TE.....

    For dallas he played at and around 260-270...it is only May but Marty has some weight to drop

    How do you allow yourself to gains so much weight months after signing a new deal?

        Depending on what his diet has been he could lose a bunch of weight in just a few weeks especially in the warmer weather.

          It probably involves eating alot.

            I would say his playing weight is 275 lbs. He can lose it before the season starts for sure, but I figured with an opportunity to be a starter, he would be taking better care of himself.

                He'll be ready to go. When you way 290 pounds, losing 15-20 pounds should take 2-3 weeks.

                    For as much criticism as the giants conditioning program has received in recent years, very interesting to see the players that has had hamstring issues this year (molden, bennett) were free agents signed by the giants, having nothing to do with the giants offseason conditioning regime

                      Agreed.

                      Definitely not a good sign, but I'll wait and see. I remember Nicks gained a lot of weight after hurting his hammy after college (different situations, I know). We all know how that turned out.

                          Exactly. Nobody in the league shreds hamstrings like Camp Coughlin. If you've never been through it, you're in for a rude awakening.

                            I hope and i mean I HOPE that the weight gain was due to him gaining more muscle knowing that he would need to block more for the Giants.

                              That's not really how to impress your coach when you are on a one year contract. I don't think the weight is an issue, the hamstrings are really what I would be worried about.
