He was fast, but never 4.18 fast. That's just absurd.

And he's 31 now, and I'd venture to guess runs no faster than a 4.5 at this point.

And I can find numerous sources saying Kevin Jones ran a 4.2 at VT. Doesn't mean it's true. It is not humanly possible to run in the 4.1s.

And no one will ever run a 4 min mile either...oh wait. Don't talk when you don't know bro, just makes you look bad. Sanders ran in the 4.1s, that dude from new Orleans who used to drive a garbage truck for a little while ran in the 4.1s that's how he even made the team.

He's far from 4.3, he couldn't touch dudes runnin in the 4.3s, he'd look stupid. He's easily in the 4.5s maybe even 4.6s at this point.

Probably not 4.18 fast, but I wouldn't be surprised of 4.4 fast. He's the fastest player on the Steelers...Wallace is the only one who might give him competition for that title. He doesn't look fast in games because his hips are not very fluid so he loses a step when he turns, that's why no one sees that speed. CBs also stick to their WRs...they don't burn a WR...so no one sees his true speed...and he rarely ever has to catch up with any WRs. I don't get why people say Taylor isn't fast.

Michael Lewis wasn't even nearly a 4.1 guy. AND IT WAS BEER TRUCKS.

Man I miss the BEer Man, what a people's champ.

I beg to differ, there were multiple reports of him running in the 4.1s, that's how he even got a tryout with the team. I remember being amazed that a guy driving a beer truck (thanks for correction) even got a try out with an NFL team. Now, those reports may have been totally bogus, but that's what they said many times on different broadcasts I heard of Stains games.

The fastest recorded 40 yard split on record belongs to Olympian Maurice Greene. During his World Record 60 meter run of 6.33, a mark that still exists, Green crossed the 40 yard mark at 4.18. Remembering that .25 seconds must be subtracted from that time due to Accu-track timing and you come up with a 40 yard dash time of 3.93 seconds.

Reason for the .25 seconds is because that is counting the firing of the starting gun which he reacted to rather than "accu-track" which begins on movement. Perfectly human to run a 4.1, 4.0, hell 3.93 :P

Running times in shorts, indoors, and on a synth track means absolutely nothing compared to a 40 time with full pads on grass/turf with cleats though.

Not to mention that it was at the END of a football game. Fatigue, etc., come into the equation as well. 40 yards dashes are heavily influenced by reaction time and how quickly you can get to your top speed. In the play we are discussing it was almost purely about top speed and how well they can maintain it. 40 yard times are mostly irrelevant.

Give me Julio. At least people have the right to be excited about him, he put up a good season beginning to end, not just a good game, or a good month. He's big, strong, can beat you over the top or underneath, everything you could ask for.


I was a very, very big DT fan coming out of Tech, but he's getting way too much love for a guy who has been hurt quite a bit and hasn't strung together enough consistency yet. His stats may suffer because of Tebow, but keep in mind when Denver throws nobody is expecting it so you have the element of surprise on top of very little coverage.


How about we see him play a full season, 14-16 games, beating double coverages, and produce at a high level first? I do like what I've seen out of him to close the season, but I need to see way more consistency before hopping all over him, and how he handles it when he's the focus of the defense.

You can say all of this about Julio too. He hasn't played 14-16 games. He hasn't beaten double coverage. He hasn't produced at a high level consistently. Roddy White is still the focus of defenses.

Demaryius Thomas is the #1 on his team and gets #1 CBs on his team already unlike Julio...he's been pretty consistent for over a month so far.

I'm not saying Thomas is any sure thing...but Julio is the one getting all this love when Thomas hasn't been far behind in his production and what he's done on the field.
