Yes, they had official times. The method of establishing those times has varied over the years. I believe at the time he was tested, they had several scouts with stopwatches and they averaged the results. I know that method was used for a while. I could be wrong about whether that's how Rice was tested.

And I agree with your overall point.

Let's not forget that nutrition, improvements in techniques and equipments also contribute to faster time today.

I don't think we can include Jerry Rice in the comparison.

It wasn't a comparison so much as a demonstration that 40 times are overvalued by some. There have been some damn good NFL players that haven't gotten times even to the minimum that Polian pointed out in his quote.
