Default It is official, Jay Ratliff is the best DT in the NFL

Quote:
Cowboys NT Jay Ratliff said he has played the last three years with bad elbows.
Ratliff says he never complained about the pain until he finally asked for an X-ray last season and bone spurs were found. After surgery, he now has no pain at all and bench pressed for the first time in two years this week. That's right folks -- he made the Pro Bowl in each of the last two years without bench pressing.

Source: Dallas Morning News



he has not touched the bench press in 2 years...

and was STILL an All-Pro

NOT just a probowler...an "All-Pro"


seriously, you have to admitt that is kinda crazy...

You could have posted just one picture. Instead of 10 with the same pose. He's leaving himself open for nut-jabs. Any savvy DT is going to take advantage of that. Cup or no cup. Shit is about to get real in the fumble pile.

Imagine that, another thread where you suck off another Cowboy. Apparently, the only way for a player to get stronger is through the bench press.

Hey prime, I thought every Cowboys player at every position was the best "POSITION" in the NFL? Why you just limiting it to Ratliff/DT? Lol.


He has been one of the quietest All Pro players the past year or two. No one gives him much talk for how good he is.

the only way to get stronger is through bench pressing, that is correct...

and you are right MK, every player on Dallas is #1 at their position, I just had to remind people of Ratliff, like you said he is kinda goes unnoticed by some...

Upper body strength, Sure. But he still probably squatted, deadlifted, power cleaned, every other important workout for lower body strength which does mean more for a linemen. Upper body strength helps sure, but lower-body strength is probably more important for football.

Ratliff himself isn't very quiet. The guy celebrates a routine tackle as if he just scored the game winning TD in the SB. Just look at the posted pics, he probably made a routine tackle in all of those instances. He's a DT, people don't really talk up DTs all that much.

Steroids are great.

Just ask Shawne Merriman.

I bet he was limited in not just the bench press but alot of upper body work outs...

I was just thinking, it seems now that maybe the trainers were being a bit irresponsible not getting that looked at sooner...

the bench press should be a routine workout for all these guys...and with Ratliff not doing it, that should have been a red flag to get him looked at...

but who knows...maybe they were just like "dude is beastin out there, who cares how he works out"

^^^ look at how ridiculous his highlight reel is for a DT...

the sack at 1:20...he gets a little dirty on the skins there...LOL

serioulsy though, he IS the best DT in the NFL

the only player that might be better when healthy is Tommie Harris...but he is never healthy so it doesn't matter


Suh needs to take notes...cause if he is even half of Ratliff next year it will be seen as a success...
