It was, as I’m sure you realize, a proud moment for me and everyone in my family. That’s why I went into journalism: to post Web images of football players’ torsos.
The only thing that could possibly be more noble, I guess, would be to post a transcript of a football player on a sports-talk radio show talking about the physiques of his teammates. So, just to complete my journalistic responsibility, here is Fred Davis, on 106.7 The Fan’s Junkies, being asked about various of his teammates’s physical appearances.
On Rex Grossman appearing larger this summer: “Nah, I don’t know, I thought he looked the same to me. I don’t even try to look at Rex with no shirt on like that. I try to focus on my own little station. I can’t really describe what he looks like....I mean Rex, yeah, he could do some P90X, but he’s not in bad shape though, he’s not in bad shape. He runs every day after practice, too. I think he’s been working. I think he’s gonna get there. Maybe next year me and him might work out, he might come back with a two-pack or a four-pack or something.”
On LaRon Landry: “He stands out, because his arms. I mean, his arms are like my leg. It’s like he has two legs he’s walking around with. He’s just a workout freak, man. He love it. I guess he likes to look that way. Intimidation, I guess, I don’t know. I don’t think that would be good for me. Maybe for him, but I just think I’d be a little more stiffer with that much muscle.”
On Santana Moss: “He has midget legs, man, them thick midget legs. He’s got a little body up top, [and] thick midget legs. I’ve always noticed that about him: big, big legs. It’s crazy.”
Davis also responded to the notion that he’s off to an amazing offensive start due to a contract push.
“See, everybody thinks that,” Davis said. “I mean, yeah, you want to get paid, but to me, honestly, I just feel I want to be one of the best, too. I don’t know. Seeing some of the tight ends that they have up there, makes you just like man, I know I can do this, I know I can probably be one of the top tight ends, too. It’s all about the opportunity. You’ve got to show it every time you get a chance.”
