Lamar Holmes


Recommended Posts

He's better than most think, he just always got tired. if he lost as much weight as they say and he's in really good shape he could be the new guard.

Did not think of this until now but i would do it, he was always quick enough, it was just his poor endurance... hmmmm

When has he ever been better than most think??? The man has great size but he has no muscle nor strength. His conditioning is among the worst and he is just a tub of goo. No offense Holmes, but you straight out suck.

What's this I hear about him cross training? Anyone got any info on this?

Indeed

He went from the all you can eat buffet and then crossed over to the Desert buffet.

How about we see if this guy can make it through the Preseason with out hurling his lunch!

Saw an article where he's reportedly lost down to 310.

Having spotted Stone deep in the woods I respect your input but, it seems a bit over the top. I don't remember LH getting bullied by anyone. The battles I saw him lose where the ones where he got beat off the snap or when a DE just used speed to get around him on the outside. He doesn't seem to move quick enough to keep a good angle on some speed rushers. However, at G he wouldn't have to chase guys like that and might be solid. If I'm wrong let me know because I'm going from memory on this one.

I will give Holmes credit that he looks good after 1 quarter of play. After that, he is a liability to our QB. He has proven that time and time again.

And a lot of this had to do from lack of endurance. Losing weight does not mean losing strength either, when you weigh that much to lose weight can often mean gaining some muscle.

Holmes had a couple really good games last year and a bad one i think before getting injured, do i think he's all - star? No, but i think he has potential to be very solid.

Which would seem to be something conditioning could help with. Hopefully this is true, because he has the chance to be decent, and Quinn seems to have found a way to motivate him.
