we posted that Jordan Phillips was the heaviest player (listed weight) get to have three sacks in one game.
He's continued his sack hunt and now has 9.5 sacks on the season. One more and he'll pass former Bill Marcell Dareus (who was listed at 331 pounds) more the most sacks for someone over 330.
The question is what were their true weights? Dave Butz had 11.5 sacks in 1983, he was listed at 6-7 295 or so pounds. Was he really under 300? He didn't look like it. But we cannot go back in time and weigh him. We're sure Roger Brown was listed at 300 but was he? We are confident he was over tha, but don't think he was over 330—at least during the season.
So, Phillips is making his mark as the big man sack machine.
