Seriously, there’s a war going on between Laron Landry & haters. We picture the haters to be balding, old, fat, white guys who work at a newspaper or tweet incessantly. If there’s one thing fat, white guys don’t like, it’s black dudes who play in the NFL and have Laron’s pipes. But their beef this time seems to be incredibly ridiculous. Is Landry really 240 pounds? And we have a Twitter war!
Landry, a safety with the Redskins, went from posting a pic of the pipes, to being gushed over in the Washington Post to being questioned about his weight. Why 240 is some sort of ‘magical’ number to dorky white guys is beyond our comprehension.
Ahh, but according to Google, this isn’t the first time Landry has chatted about 240-pounds on his frame. He actually told media in 2010 that he was shooting to hit 240 in order to play “in the box a little bit more” in defensive coordinator Jim Haslett’s defense that doesn’t really use a strong safety.
Blah, blah, blah. All this weight talk doesn’t matter. The guy has been battling an Achilles injury. According to the Busted Coverage team doctor, it don’t matter what you weigh or how large your pipes are. If you can’t run, you can’t play in the NFL.
React accordingly, fat, white guys.
