What looks great on Larry Fitzgerald or Reggie Bush doesn't exactly work for some of the NFL's, ahem, larger fellas. "I hate them. They are built for thin guys," said Alex Boone, a 300-pound starting guard for the San Francisco 49ers. "It makes me look like I have big old love handles." After a decade of wearing Reebok-made jerseys, NFL players this year switched to Nike. ... "I don't really care for the new jerseys," said Baltimore Ravens defensive lineman Terrence Cody, who is 349 pounds and 6 feet 4. "I feel like they should put different material in for the big guys." Boone, who complains that his stomach hangs out the bottom of the jersey, said it makes him feel self-conscious. "It makes me look fat," he said, "and I'm not fat."
