Yes its terrible. We have the slowest receivers in the league. None of them will have a 100 yard game. The team is no good. We are going nowhere. The team should be sold. Its Singletary's fault, Nolan's fault, Smith's fault, Martz's fault, and Denise Debartolo's fault.
For what it's worth, Arizona probably has the slowest receiving corps in the league.
Both Boldin and Breaston are burners. Fitzgerald has average speed for a WR.
Dude, seriously, are you just making things up as you go along?
Boldin fell to Zona in the draft because he ran a 4.71 40 yard dash at the combine. A 4.71
Fitz ran a 4.63
Breaston ran about a 4.5 as I recall.
Given that scouts think of 4.6 as the cutoff point for being too slow to be a pro WR, Zona almost definitely has the slowest starting pair of WRs (both over the 4.6 mark), and probably has the slowest corp overall also.
The discussion of track speed is virtually meaningless. Alot of track guys look slow as molasses on the football field, and alot of guys with slow track times have exceptional game speed and are rarely caught on the field; our own Jerry is a prime example. So, bringing up 40 times is pointless except to illustrate how little it means when actually playing the game.
