    I've seen some redundant statements, but this one has gotta get some kind

    Good catch.

    What file do I put this one in? Hmmm, ah yes, Dumbing Down of Society.

    I know how fast Mathis is, does anyone know if Mathis is the favorite? I don't know too much about the others, of course i know they are all going to be burners. I can't remember who beat Andre last year, I remember AJ came in 2nd, whoever it was will be back to defend.

    Allen Rossum--AJ was coming on fast at the end.

    Rossum ran a 4.32 at his combine, Mathis a 4.28.

    Should be an interesting race between the two. Hopefully they don't put them in the same opening bracket.

    They are only running 40 yards, so who gets the fastest start has an awful lot to do with it. If it was a 100, Mathis would eat them alive, he'd win 10 out
    of 10 hundreds. I'd bet on it.

    If Andre finished second last year Mathis should have no problem winning. :fans:

    I don't think that would matter as long as they finished 1st and 2nd. If I remember correctly, they had 2 heats of 4 runners and the top 2 from each heat went to the finals. I could be wrong, though.

    Don't short change us, that would make it three. You missed the coaching change.

    I could have sworne that they ran 100.

    A.J. was an indoor track start at Miami. He is a beast. He is a gazelle. He is not human.

    Mathis is still faster. Mathis was also a track start. He qualified for the US olympic team in the 200m. I'm just hoping his start is fast if they are only running 40.

    Are they going to do the "fastest man in the NFL challenge" again this year? I remember watching it when Andre went, but Mathis is freaky fast and I'd like to see how he would run against top NFL talent speed in the event. If anyone knows please post when it is going to be televised. Thanks in advance.
