...this afternoon.

Yes, I've seen this from 3 different people since yesterday.

Is Higgy fast enough to play linebacker? His 40 is...

Geez, he must have been REALLY slow to have been at safety last year and still played in 10 games in a reserve role.

FWIW, his 8 tackles yesterday in scrimmage matched the total he had last year during the season.
Playing LB is not always about speed. Angles, and reading your keys is most important. That is what gives you the edge over blockers...that and knowing how to scrape off them and get to the ball....everyone is so obsessed with 40 times...when they do not always translate to speed on the field.

4.6-4.65...good shuttle time which is more important at the LB'er position than a straight 40.

Shuttle speed? I know the Delta Flyer on the USS Starship Voyager can reach Warp 6.


Oh yeah? Well the Millenium Falcon can do .5 past light speed. You've never heard of the Millenium Falcon? It's the ship that did the Kessel run in less than 5 parsecs. She's fast enough for you old man.
