[Oberjuerge] Creature a feature at USC - San Bernardino Sun
To appreciate nose tackle Sedrick Ellis' mind-set, consider this: He not only doesn't get upset when USC defensive coordinator Nick Holt calls him "a creature," he likes it.

"That's kind of cool when somebody thinks that much of you to say you're not even human," Ellis said. "You're a creature. And you're out there with a bunch of humans ... and you have the advantage."...

...If you're going to have a sasquatch-type figure on your football team, nose tackle is the position for him.

Nose tackles aren't made as much as spawned. Hatched out of pods.

They're really not normal human beings who recoil from pain and run from punishment...
