Some Redskins Thoughts on Super Ads

ALL of these commercials are vastly superior to Mean Joe, though. I don’t care what any of these people — OR any top ten lists — say.

Thursday, January 29: Confirming What You Might Suspect

Posted by Matt Terl on January 29, 2009 – 1:02 pm

So there’s a sense of general agreement that the Cardinals’ Larry Fitzgerald is just about the best wide receiver in football right now, and that he and Anquan Boldin form the best receiving tandem in the league. Andrew Perloff of SI.com makes an important observation, though: neither of them is particularly fast.

If anyone still thinks the 40-yard dash is a crucial measurement of how a player will fare in the NFL, just watch the Cardinals receivers play on Sunday. Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin are among the top 10 wideouts in the league even though they couldn’t run a 4.5 coming out of college.

Like anything else that can be measured in numbers at the combine, the 40 is meaningless. Receivers have to do so much more than run a straight line.

“Meaningless” is probably a bit much, though. If you look at the top 40-yard dash times for the wide receivers in last year’s combine, you’ll see Eagles rookie star DeSean Jackson right there at the top, and Broncos breakout success Eddie Royal not too far below. So that’s two of the top rookie wideouts toward the top of the 40 times, more correlation than exists with the top performers in any of the other workouts. Read more »
