Some football fans worked themselves into a bit of an uproar after a picture surfaced showing Jameis Winston looking less than svelte as he prepared for the combine.

Jared Lorenzen, the original plus-sized quarterback, took notice and crafted a perfect tweet about the picture and yesterday's Fat Tuesday celebration.

Lorenzen looks like he has got a solid 100+ lbs. advantage over Winston here, so it is safe to call him the victor.

As for the photo of Winston, The Big Lead spoke with the quarterback coach who is training the former Florida State star, and he said the photo is over a month old and the paunch in the photo is created by the leash tied tight around the Heisman Trophy winner's waist.
