    I ran a search for "Todd Devoe" on google. What I found out, in a nut shell, is that every place he has played he's been a stand out performer. College, NFL practice teams (Ravens and Dolphens) and NFL Europe. How he has slipped from team to team is a bit of a mystery to me though. Run a search on him if you doubt what I'm saying.

    Saying "prove it" is a little like saying, shower me with statistics because I don't believe you. All I'm saying is...

    ...stats prove nothing. Touchdowns do...!

    ...by the way, do you like his initials...? T.D.

    A little sarcasm was there, I admit.

    I do believe you that he's fast (we all saw that on Saturday) I just think your original statement may have been a slight exageration.

    I agree - give me a slower guy who can find paydirt over a speedburner who drops balls and won't go over the middle anytime.

    His initials were not lost on me, nor was his draft status and comparisons to Rod. Here's to the guy working his a** off and becoming a stud.

    Settle down!!!!!! I never said he wasn't faster than his 40 time or that he can't pull away from some DB's. My only issue was that you said he is "as fast as anyone in the NFL." That is a very strong statement that needs a little more to back it up than "watch him play." Do you have any idea how many speedburners there are in the game today? And yet you claim this guy is as fast as all of them? Again, back it up and don't take things so personally.

Don't take your insecurities out on me...

    And Bill do come back to d2football its not the same man...
    Thanks friend, but I left that board because it was not properly moderated. I still respond to e-mails and "check in" from time to time to take a peek on things related to D2, but I will not allow it to taint my view of football any longer.

    Regarding Todd Devoe...

    ...the previous poster made my point for me. When WRs line up, the d-back is not side by side with him and racing him out of the blocks. The d-back generally starts out facing the WR (the last time I checked) and if he stumbles or falters at all and Todd gets a step on him, it's over. The game of football is not played on the track. Todd Devoe has real game speed. Most of his 80+ yard TD last weekend against the Texans was after the catch. He couldn't be caught. There, I just proved it. Case closed...!

    Maybe he's as fast as anyone in the NFL - with a 3 yard head start. That should prevent him from getting caught from behind too often.

    started a topic Todd Devoe

    Todd Devoe

    I know Todd on a first name basis and followed him very closely in college football. Regarding his 40 time, think what you will but here's the truth of the matter...

    Todd is not the fastest out of the blocks, but the 4.64 time that someone posted is an anomally, I can assure you. He's more like a 4.45...

    Also...

    The 40 is partially a measure of how fast you get out of the blocks and also a measure of one's speed. Todd may not be the fastest out of the blocks, but when he's up to full speed, he's a fast as ANYONE in the NFL. If he gets behind a defender it all over. A real deep ball threat...!

    Hope this helps...?

    Bill
