  • The Planet Theory

    So which DT in this years draft do you think fits this theory?

    It belongs to the late New York Giants executive George Young. It's called the Planet Theory.


    "Big, giant men that run fast?" Schwartz said while paraphrasing Young. "That are strong enough to play the run and athletic enough to play the pass? ... There's not many people like that walking the planet."

      In the sense that Cody has two-three moons orbiting him? I heard flies are attracted to him as well, thinking he's a hippo or elephant.

        Cody is just fat and not much else IMO. Suh is a classic example of planet theory, and McCoy is not far behind. Suh is a great combo of size, strength, and speed. McCoy is just ridiculously quick for a DT, but his size and strength aren't amazing for a DT.

          I think Linval Jospeh could be one.

            The "Planet Theory" also applies to LT's and DE's.

                Erm, the Planet Theory is supposed to be applied to those guys who are so impossibly large that you're shocked they're able to play football, not a mishmash of 300 lbs. guys.

                Cody does apply here, but only barely. Almost everyone else listed isn't really that far above average size for the positions they'll play in the NFL.

                  I was making a joke with Cody, obviously the indication in the article is that it applies to Ndamukong Suh.

                      I really don't see how though. The whole idea of the theory is that taking really gargantuan guys is a attractive and smart move, it says nothing about taking average sized guys with great strength (which is what Suh is).

                              Read Schwartz's quote and it is his take on it.
