They are not meaningless but you can't just translate them to the field and expect a fast player. Some guys gets slowed down a lot by the pads while the greats move as fast with pads as without.

And reaction times, anticipation, technique and that extra step in changing direction totally negate the 2/10th of a second difference between "fast" and "slow".

Re: Vaccaro intends to add to Saintsí new-look defense

Combine 40 times are with blocks, straight line, no pads.... And it's the best of 3 runs, it's not even an average of 3 runs as far as I know.

I find that similar to a Porsche and a Top fuel car running 1/4 mile times. Then putting both on an Indy track. The funny car will smoke the Porsche in the straight line but the Porsche has the advantage of being able to handle the curves of the Indy track. Not a completely accurate comparison but you get the just of it.

You misread his post, although he may indeed drink more than you.

How did an Indy Car enter this? Never mind, I feel I just wasted another 3 minutes of my life.

Your right.
