Saw Otah tonight at Nikkos off South Blvd. I think a lot of the Panthers players live near South End. My father in-law has a mail route off South and delivers a lot I mail to players. He told me a story about Eric Norwood being mad because he never received his mail b/c he was too dumb to forward it.

Anyway, Otah was at the bar having a water and sushi. Nothing exciting, but he did look in great shape. I wasn't 100% sure it was him until he left and the manager spoke to him.

I saw Otah his rookie year in San Diego sitting end zone when the Panthers were warming up
(Delhomme last second pass to Rosario). Not that I had forgot, but even without the pads Otah is one of the most massive people you will ever see up close.

I never speak to players when I see them out at restaurants because I know they just want to be left the fug alone, but I do believe based on what I saw he is in as good of shape as is claimed. For the record, Otah doesnt like the type who likes I chit chat. He was on his phone but didn't speak a word to anyone.

Also, we were sitting diagonally in front of Jonathon Stewart and Pickles. They were there with some random girl and guy.

I would like to think I am in pretty good shape, but Stewart's forearms are at least twice my size. He truly looks like a LB.

And Pickles, well there is a reason Jerry Richardson called him dough boy. Nothing impressive at all. Had a baseball hat on so I didn't recognize him until he was leaving.

Anyway, nothing really to report other than I was glad to see Otah looking like a beast and hoping he will play like one this year.

And Nikkos is a bomb restaurant if you've never been.

I don't understand the moronic obsession with people here calling him lazy, or questioning his passion for the game and/or work ethic. He can't help he's gimpy anymore than I can help I have degenerative joint disease. I hope he can come back health as he's a true difference maker when he's on the field.

I've never said anything negative about the guy. And I guarantee very few people in this world would say something like that to him in person.

Just relaying that I saw him out and he looked to be in phenomenal physical shape and I hope he can be great this year

Otah was sitting alone at the bar. I'm not sure when Stewart and Pickles cam in because I was with a group from work and didn't notice Stewart until I had to go recycle some beer

Otah isn't lazy, he just has the same injury plagued life that Thomas Davis has. Neither are lazy, they just aren't as lucky as a James Anderson or Jordan Gross.

I have always been very high on Otah ... since he was drafted. I truly believe that he is not lazy or overweight, the guy was/appears to be in great shape. I also truly believe he CAN be one of the best OL in the NFL. He is a mountain of a man and needs a healthy year to show his worth. I understand the perspective that he is like Peppers, but this year will tell the tale. Contract year, never fear.

Pickles seriously looks like what you would expect your JV Quarterback to be. I know he never got a truly fair shake here, but the thought that of him as a leader and player compared to Newton is absurd.

I do not dislike The Jimmy as much as I can't stand the thought of him stealing money again this year and trying to homey it up with Cam after he puts another 7 on the board.

Otah is in the dog house. No doubt.

I expect Otah to start every game this year and play well. Contract year.

Let him walk after this season. Dude is a lazy pussy.
