Daunte Culpepper (6-4, 260), Byron Leftwich (6-5, 250), Ben Roethlisberger (6-5, 240), and Jared Lorenzen (6-4, 290, who still holds the record on completions and total yards at Kentucky) beg to disagree.And all of them have to do in with fear of bodily harm (unlike Sano) and nobody can accuse Lorenzen of six-pack abs ;)

Only one of them made it for more than a few years as a top QB (the lightest)

I agree they were excellent athletes, although I bet none of them could field a bunt like Miguel!

The above statement probably illustrates the point better than I ever could.  

 

Confusing the message with disdain for the messenger.

Actually, I had little to no issues with Souhan - I don't read local writers much so I had no reason to dislike him - until he wrote his first Sano-bashing article. So, my issues with Souhan primarily revolve around his articles about Sano.
