Food for thought: Biggest eater on Seahawks' O-line
At 6-foot-5 and 298 pounds, J.R. Sweezy is easily the smallest member of the Seahawks' offensive line. But according to center Max Unger, Seattle's right guard is the biggest eater. And it's not even close.
No pre-Thanksgiving interview – especially one with an NFL offensive lineman – would be complete without a question about food. In this case, one's capacity to stuff his face with it. So when asked which of Seattle's offensive linemen would do the most damage if they all got together for a Thanksgiving dinner, Unger said Sweezy without hesitation.
"It's crazy. It has to be a medical condition because ... he's a D-lineman, I mean, he doesn't look like an O-lineman," Unger said of Sweezy, a college defensive tackle who's in his second season with the Seahawks, "and he eats, I'd say, three times as much as anybody.
"It's ridiculous. It's like a problem."
Seattle's offensive linemen won't be having Thanksgiving dinner together, but Unger said they're going to pool some money together and hand out turkeys in the Renton area.
