I'm curious to see how fast PP runs the forty.
PP says he ran a 4.29 last week and has told everyone over the last month he will run a 4.2 this week. Guess PP isn't scared of the added pressure.
I was at a function yesterday and a couple of Bama fans were braggin on Julio Jones and how he ran a 4.39 forty and jumped 11'3" broad jump...which is impressive.
I would just LOVE it if Patrick Peterson ran a 4.2 forty so that I could shoot an email to brag on my guy.
I don't think he'll run a 4.2 40. No one ever does as well as they expect with the very precise timers they have at the NFL combine. I don't think he has the acceleration for it but probably would put in a good 100m time.
I agree. Hopefully, we'll be eating crow in a couple of hours, though.
I thought defensive backs dont run until tomorrow (Tuesday)??
Seems like you may be right. Should be fun to watch for.
Stranger things have happened...like Laron Landry running a 4.35 40 yard dash a couple years ago. Totally shocked me because the dude was known for knocking out QBs.
Yeah, but how else is a safety going to knock out a QB unless he's quick. Safety blitzes are most successful when your safety can haul ace.
But you're right....I was surprised, too.
Even those are not extremely precise. Hard to gauge in general.
