    Randy Moss ran a 4.28 in a off-season work out right before the NE signing so I don't see why Champ couldn't. Besides 40 time doesn't mean much because it differs from game speed.

    champ is one of the best athletes ive ever seen.
    i highly doubt because he's 29 that he has lost much speed.

    he's one of those rare players that can probably be very fast till his 30's like Randy Moss thats why i dont expect champ to retire soon

    That was coming out of college.
    Long time ago.
    He still is fast and he'll regain his quickness after resting those legs this off season.

    40 time

    I would say at this point hes 29 going on 30 and has 9 years of playing(played in every game except 2) he is probably still able to kick out 4.32-4.38 which is still as fast or faster than 99% of the recievers in the game. In all reality 4.45 is still fast enough to be an effective corner(Sheldon Brown, Ronde Barber). Its all about combining that speed with knowledge of the game to be great. Some guys are fast as all hell, but are dumb as a box of rocks when it comes to instincts on the field.

    His official WAS indeed 4.28, which btw was faster than D-Halls 4.31 (I think).

    Does it really matter? When he's healthy, he can run with the fastest players on the field. So to me, that's all that matters.

    I would still say he is one of the better if not best in the league though.

    Just my two cents
    I would disagree. With a quad injury its the easiest to run in a straight line with small strides. Look to the tape of the green bay game where champ got burned. He actually closed with great speed but because his stride was hindered (shorter) his timing of the jump was a bit off and he missed the ball by 2 inches. The speed was there once he had his sights on the WR and his body mechanics were in a straight line.

    If you think about it, with champ being hurt he is still a top 10 CB at 80%

    Im a track coach and the way champ has been 4.4 is VERY LIKELY at this point in the season, but I do believe his peak is 4.32-4.35.

    A couple key factors that determine a quick 40 time is :
    1.) explosive first step
    2.) stride length
    3.) quick turn over

    Over time a CB's explosive first step will be lost because they need to READ and REACT in the NFL. Also once you are established in the NFL, your 40 time needs to only be maintained and not improved.

    In Champs case I could argue that his stride length has been hindered by injury (this was shown in the green bay game) which would also hinder his turn over. This is why right now I could guess a 4.4. Champ though at 100% could shave that time by .05 or .07.

    Anyone who thinks Champ could run under 4.3 at this point in his career (age being a factor too) is just crazy, and I would love to take your money in a bet!

    I hope this helps.
