Originally written on Eagles Eye  |  Last updated 7/3/13
Anyone who knows me knows I like my Iggles offensive linemen BIG, FAT AND MEAN.... But the current trend in the NFL is toward zone-blocking, which means LEAN AND TRIM AND QUICK... and the Eagles are committed to that trend. There's no way around it. The day of the semi-athletic toilet-cloggers is over...at least in Philly and a host of other NFL cities. Maybe Houston is the best example of what a trim athletic offensive line can produce in the way of offensive production---not to mention the career of Arian Foster. The Chippah wants a sleek offensive line. So be it. So here we are. Lane Johnson is a case in point. For a big guy, he's pretty lean and quick. There he is with his beautiful new bride Chelsea---and she's certainly fitting the bill on the lean side. Congrats to Lane and Chelsea... And as a wedding present to the Johnsons, I promise to get totally with the program... I am going to root for the fast and the furious theory of O-Linemen......
