Do you know who Sonny Jurgensen is? He was the overweight puddgy (but talented) QB of the Redskins before Vince Lombardi got there. When reporters asked him how his physique would play with Lombardi as the new coach, he responded " I don't throw with my stomach."
The next year he was in his best shape ever and led the league. His team had its best record in 15 years!
After Lombardi passed away (before the next season) he claimed Lombardi was his favourite coach.
Now I am not saying that Carlyle is Lombardi, but I am hoping that Kessel will be "Sonny Jurgensen." lol
