Sitton: In the rain, 'I felt like 400 pounds'

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Aug 9, 2014

Rain makes offensive linemen feel even bigger than they are.  Run-blocking makes offensive linemen feel awesome, if you believe the words of Green Bay Packers' offensive guard Josh Sitton after his team's game against the Tennessee Titans Saturday night.

"I feel heavy all the time, but I felt like I was 400 pounds today.  I was real heavy out there," said a drenched Sitton after a game in a torrential downpour in Nashville.

However, he told 620WTMJ/NBC26's Larry McCarren his fellow linemen had an absolute blast in the first drive of the game, where the Packers ran it down Tennessee's throats to a touchdown.

"You've got to love it, any time you go and run the ball 7 of 8 plays, I think, and score a touchdown," said Sitton.

"Especially as an offensive lineman.  Run blocking is our favorite thing to do.  Every time you can establish that rung game, we're loving it up front."
