    He's not faster than Deion or Moss in their primes. Not a chance.

    Is Devin Hester really that fast?? Didnt he run a 4.30+ or something?..

    Theres talk that Ted Ginn has ran a 40 in 4.00->4.10 range..

    Also i dont think Devin Hester could out round Michael Bennett back from when we drafted him..

    100 is way overrated..

    Where?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/40_yard_dash

    Many reported times are unreliable due to differences in timing methods if not intentional falsifications. The fastest time officially recorded by the NFL was 4.29 seconds by Cameron Jobe in 1989 [1], although the NFL did not begin electronic timing until 1990. In the electronic timing era, the fastest recorded time at the NFL Combine was 4.25 seconds (hand time) by cornerback Fabian Washington in 2005. However, his official time at the 2005 Combine was 4.31 seconds[2] Most other times close to 4.0 are untrustworthy due to the use of hand timing, but still many use hand timed 40's such as players including Jerome Mathis (4.25) [3],DeAngelo Hall (4.15)[4][5], Michael Vick (4.25),Lee Suggs (4.27)[6], Bo Jackson (4.12)[7], Don Beebe (4.21)[1], Michael Bennett (4.13)[8], Randy Moss (4.25)[9], Darrell Green (4.15[10], 4.2[11]), Laveranues Coles (4.2)[12], and Nicky Schlatz (4.00)[13] have approached that mark. Although 40 yards almost never run, the 60 meter dash is a well-regulated, frequently ran track and field distance, the official record for which is 6.39 seconds. However, tapes of sprinter Ben Johnson's world-record breaking 1988 100 meter dash (which was later annulled due to Johnson's steroid use) show that Johnson ran the 60 m in 6.37 seconds; this is considered the quickest start to a race ever.[14] Johnson covered the first 40 meters in 4.53 seconds. It is often reported wrongly that Johnson's first 40 yards was timed; it was actually his first 40 meters. His 40 yard time was an exceptionally fast 4.14 seconds.

    However, in track and field races, the runner must react to the starting gun, which can take 0.10 to 0.20 seconds. For electronically timed 40 yard dashes, the runner is allowed to start when he wishes, and a timer hand-starts the clock (after a reaction time of 0.1 to 0.2 seconds). This difference would indicate that, at peak form, Johnson would have been electronically timed in 4.04 to 4.14 seconds, or hand-timed in about 4.00 seconds, making claims of hand-held times in the 4.1-4.2 range more credible.

    While some information is accurate in this "best times" section, many of the times themselves are not accurate. Some of those times were not among the times recorded for these players at the Combine.

    In fact, there is no such thing as one, single "official" time in the 40 at the Indianapolis Combine.
    If Ted Ginn really could run a 4.1 40, he should stop playing football and run track and field full time, as that is world-record speed.

    I think Devon was buggin' EA about it. Sounds like he may have whined & got his way. He's still not happy about his "defensive awareness" & "breaking tackle" numbers.

    Apparently Hester is too stupid to realize that "defensive awareness" doesn't mean you are aware of where the defensive players are.
    It means while you're on defense, how aware are you of where the offensive players are and where the ball is.

    And, as he is an absolute nightmare at CB, he deserves a horrid DA score.

    This was posted on 02/09/07....saying that the NY Jets Justin Miller is the NFL's fastest man. He'll probably get a 98 on Madden 08
