Does Carl Nicks Really Weigh 380?September 13th, 2012
Not a bad vertical leap for the biggest man on the field[/caption]
Those who watched the Bucs-Panthers broadcast heard FOX analyst Mike Martz and his play-bay-play cohort say that the human armoire, Bucs guard Carl Nicks, weighs 380 pounds — 380 pounds!
This seemed like a bloated figure to Joe, even if Nicks is a manbeast and clearly exceeds the 349 pounds he’s listed as on the Bucs roster.
Wednesday, Nicks hopped on the digital scale in the middle of the Bucs locker room, stepped off and did a Popeye-like flex of his biceps before letting out a manly yell at Joe standing nearby.
Joe asked Nicks, “what’s the number?” and Nicks said, “I’ll never tell.”
So Joe proceeded to tell Nicks what the FOX team said about his weight. Nicks seemed a bit annoyed by the commentary and asked who the announcers were. Joe filled him in, and Nicks seemed eager for a second to tell Joe his real weight, and then Nicks told Joe he didn’t believe the announcers really said that. Joe told Nicks to watch the tape, and Nicks laughed.
So how much does Nicks weigh? It remains a mystery. Joe just hopes it’s too much, combined with too much strength, for the Giants defensive line to handle.
