In other mind-blowing news, water is still wet and the sun continues to rise every morning in the east.
Rookie Terrence Cody, the busty 2010 second round draft pick of the Baltimore Ravens out of Alabama, has failed a Ravens conditioning test and has been put on the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) List. Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, who must have seen Cody in the locker room without his shirt on – or possibly at the team breakfast stacking several pounds of bacon on his tray – was not surprised by the wheezing, sweating and gasping outcome of Cody’s conditioning test (via Ravens Insider):
“Every year, certain guys struggle with that,” Harbaugh said. “Guys learn there are a certain level of expectation in terms of conditioning that goes with being an NFL player, especially for this team. He’s going to have to get himself in the kind of shape he needs to be in.
Harbaugh added, “We expect all of our guys to be in world-class shape. So, he’ll be in world-class shape soon enough.”
World-class shape? Come on, Coach Harbaugh, that might be setting the bar a wee bit high for a portly fellow like Cody, don’t you think? How about instead of “world-class shape,” you simply expect that Cody be able to bend over and tie his shoes without blacking out or stepping on his flopping and flapping man boobs? I believe baby steps are in order here. Just saying.
