    Lions | Woody loses 31 pounds

    Mon, 19 Mar 2007 12:54:25 -0700
    Mike O'Hara, of the Detroit News, reports Detroit Lions OL Damien Woody lost 31 pounds during the offseason and will try to bring his weight down to 315 pounds. While Woody dealt with an injured left foot during the 2006 season, he struggled to control his weight and ballooned to 378 pounds. Now, Woody is fully healthy and dedicated to getting his body ready for the 2007 season

    Very good news from Damien Woody.. one of his biggest problems has been his weight.. I hope he can get it down, and keep it down. It could save him a spot on the team.

      Does that mean he'll stay on roster?

          Woody needs to have a good year and training camp. Interesting cap situation. I don't know if I want Barry Stokes at guard if we cut Woody. I say give him one more year.

            We still have the draft to get a guard if we cut Woody. But of course Millen has trouble on the second day.

              Sounds like Stokes would start though. I would love Blalock but if we cut Woody and get Blalock we still need a Left Guard unless Frank Davis or Stokes plays Left Guard. We just resigned Saipia too to a 2 year deal.

                Good article by Killer... some good points made. Can we trust that Woody will be dominant? Hmm...

                I think that, if we can draft a guard like Blalock/Grubbs, we cut him and let the rookie into the rotation (if he's ready). If they'd like to go a different direction in the draft, keep Woody and let him prove himself.

                I dunno. It'll be interesting to see how this one turns out.

                  If Woody could get his weight under control, he could be at least serviceable IMO.

                    I think it's hard to pay a "serviceable" player $6 million (or $4.5 million... or something). We have a lot of players that are "serviceable"... but, to make that much, he has to be a solid starter.

                    Is he there? No one knows.

                      That is good news. It would be nice to have some options on the offensive line and those guys to be in shape/healthy. I would still like to see Blalock fall to us and scoop him up late in the first (trading up after trading down from #2) or early in the 2nd.

                        I agree with you there. It's funny that I brought up the money issue in reference to Mike Williams, and then didn't even think about it for Woodey. But I agree, for that much money, he needs to be a solid starter.

                          Here's the Free Press article with some direct quotes of Woody.

                          It sounds like a couple things have happened here. One, Woody realized his career is circling the drain and unless he does something about it fast, his next contract will be for peanuts, if he even gets another one. Two, the Lions finally made good on their yearly "bus tickets" rhetoric by getting rid of Bly and Hall, and Woody knows he is that close to getting kicked to the curb.

                          That's what it sounds like. But I also feel like losing the next 30 lbs., to get down to the 315 he says he wants to be at, might not be so easy. We'll see.

                            The Killer blog about Woody scared me... I guess the same thing happened a few years ago... he was overweight, came to camp in shape and promised to perform and work hard... and it didn't happen. I really hope it happens this time.

                            If Millen thinks that it won't happen, he needs to release him and fill the hole elsewhere. Keeping him (again) and having him slack off (again) will show "weakness" on his part to his players. He needs to give the impression that if you say something, you do it... or you're gone.

                              Completely agree here. Marinelli is trying to be a "hard nosed" type coach, my way or the highway. If he appears soft, the players are going to look at it like it's just an act, an may quit on him IMO.
