08 he looked awesome, but despite the problems he had before the pre-jugding this year, you can clearly see he has added size to his frame, back width and thickness improved, same for legs, arms and shoulders, chest will always be overpowered by his shoulders and arms but it's improved too.That stomach virus was really a curse anyway.
i thought he looked better, the competition this year was tougher
The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all
kinds of talk, get told that you're a god or a total bastard. The Iron
will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference
point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in
the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend. It
never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two
hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.
Yes he has made improvements. Most noticeably in his back. If he didn't get sick before the show I think he would have looked even better. But not as significant of improvements as you would expect after seeing his offseason pics. It looked as though Phil made a 03' Ronnie Coleman transformation and came in only looking slightly bigger in the show.

There is a little bit of size added to his back. But overall it is hard to compare Phil on with Phil off. He looks similar between the two years, but this year the improvements would have been lost with the throwing up.
