“Out of shape” and “fat and lazy” are the same thing to you? Fat is 1 thing but many were questioning his love for football and his work ethic..

"Many" were not questioning his love for football, a very small group of people were.

"Fat and lazy" was never the narrative to begin with, the narrative was he was out of shape, which was true.

But all of you that are on this weird bandwagon to prove any single person who questioned his fitness wrong by lumping them in with the four people in existence that called the kid fat and lazy, you do you. 

That small group of people were questioning something you could legitimately question at the time and now, it cannot be questioned. But to pretend there was ever more than .03% of the fan base that thought the kid was lazy is just silly. You're fighting imaginary enemies.

He also missed time and pulled himself out, that ma gotta stop. He ain’t sh*t if he ain’t playing. 

I mean if thats your only complaint . I would say he is doing just fine. he doesn’t have a major injury history. So lets how year 2 play out . Cause missing 3 games aint enough to label anyone soft.

I was really worried when I heard some reports that he was badly out of shape for minicamp but then I seen a photo of him on Instagram and he looked fine. I think this is a lazy narrative people are going to push with him but it’s really not a concern yet.

He’s needs to be a little tougher, but when he plays he’s dominant.

100% agreed and will become great. Just gotta stay in the damn game.

No Surprise he works with the best Oline trainer in the business.. some jets fans are just miserable always looking to complain about something.

Yes but he’s so important that it’s hard to discount the bad stories.  The nfl is rife with players that come into camp out of shape and the rumor was Beaton was eating a lot.  That on top of his reported foot problems really set the tone. I’m glad to see he’s going to be working hard. The jets need him.

I could do that, if those were pizzas.

I am assuming you are not talking personal pizza but full 18” 8 slices per pie pizzas

Maybe I’m just fighting the same imaginary enemies that Mekhi is.

This doesnt prove your point, so I'm not sure what you're attempting to hit here? 

Again, there were people that viewed him as out of shape, and that's what he was talking about. 

But, saying a bunch of people viewed him as "fat and lazy" and not loving football, is just stupid.

Unfortunately, he might just be too big, and it might not matter if its muscle or fat.  Its still a lot of weight on a taller guy.  It puts a lot of stress on the joints and body either way.

Becton has the face the tougher competition but Wirfs is definitely the better player.  What?  So how would Becton have played if he didn’t have to play the blindside? Does Brady getting the ball out quick have anything to do with his great play?

Pretty lame workout video. Moses evidently has a NFL caliber weight room with 30 yds of astroturf. Fant has a converted 2-car garage with a Dicks Sporting Goods level setup and heads over to the local HS for “ cardio”. Fant has all the physical attributes, just not certain how deep his desire is to be great.

The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat. - Napoleon HI’ll

I don’t think the issue with Fant has ever been that he is out of shape or doesn’t train enough.  He just isn’t that great at football.

He lacks the footwork to backpedal and set anchor IMO.on a bulrush and  His technique on the speed rush let’s DE get pressure. Swing tackle will be perfect fit

What does it matter what his workout room is, or where he got the equipment?

Hes doing the work to stay in shape, thats what matters.

Hell, Rocky Balboa used logs and rocks....

Every 300+lb lineman has the same issue, it isn’t exclusive to just Mekhi.

Your largely irrational and unreasonable hatred of the 2020 Jets draft class continues to be highly unbecoming.

Hate?  I'd give it a B maybe but you are starting to resemble fans on the other sports forum I hang out on, the Edmonton Oiler form in which if you are at all critical of any move or any draftee then you hate the team and are not a fan.

I never thought he was lazy (especially with all of the people reporting on the foot injury and how it had nothing to do with being out of shape).  The thing that worries me the most is arrogance. I think it went to his head a little last year since he was somewhat of a sensation. If he plays well he is going to get hyped up—just hope he can handle that.

The whole Becton is fat narrative has been media "fear porn".  Every
picture shows him in excellent shape, 350-360 pounds on a 6-7 frame
doesn't translate into "out of shape"

Take a look at him at the end of last season, he was as fat as advertised

hope fully he can keep the weight off

This is 'fat' Becton last year wrecking the 49ers DL.  Now think about 'in shape' Becton doing this, with Wilson back there instead of Darnold.  Make sure you have tissues nearby.

 

Just watching the first few sequences reminds me of how awful Darnolds footwork had become.  
So bad that not even the offensive genius we had as HC could get him even close to fixed.

Fans were no better.  News comes out that he had a foot problem and the immediate response here and elsewhere from internet Dr.'s or dietitians/personal trainers was that he was out of shape and fat.

Hes a huge man, will always be a big man.  its part of what makes him so dominant.
