    what does i mean that the PATS are ranked dead-last in TEAM speed?

    i checked and re-checked and no1 had started this so here it goes.. (previous thread didnt come up so not my fault if it appears in 10 hours or so).. botttom line, talent and speed dont always work out but thats the way to bet! the best way to beat a downfield speedster is with a downfield speedster.. how many more times do we have to see the back of a jabro gegory's jersey or mccourty's to learn nothing beats speed like height or a gronk.. cant coach that.. Tenessee being #1 is interesting. watching the skins last night tells me they will b much better. burners everywhere incl qb and the entire D. rexy got him some. SF and seattle are in the top 15. we dont have o b #1, but not even in the top 20? come on dawg!


    moves like Jagger are nice but flat out speed is a GREATER asset. bb has been recalcitrant and almost derelict in this area. being dead last in team speed is nothing o brag about, dont care what your cone speed is in comparison. making quick cuts has its place but u need a couple of moss-type burners out there as well... u feel me?

    Commy, it's your opinion that flat-out speed is better than lateral speed, arm length and other traits. 


    The Oakland Raiders have bought into that flat-out speed kills thing whole hog.  They've often taken the fastest wide receiver in the draft, and these speedsters never helped them make the playoffs once in recent years.

    It means that we wouldn't win an NFL track meet

    Yes, because the Pats need to strive to be faster than the  Titans, Bills, Jets, and Browns because that's what makes those teams better ... oh wait...


     


    Honestly, wht drugs do you take?

    The difference between a 4.3 40 and a 4.5 40 is about the time it takes to say 'tick-tick' really quickly. On the field it is not noticeable. You need guys who can run a 4.5 40 while still being able to determine what your QB is seeing and thinking, and figure out which route to run.

    It means the Patriots have the slowest team in the NFL and somehow manage to compete for the Super Bowl consistently better than any team in the league.

    You know what beats speed, brains. You have both now your talking. Football is a game of intelligence, people forget it.
