Growl

Keenan Allen Pro Day Tommorow.

Recommended Posts

I never thought of trying to be a Mayock on here so I don't see why you're butthurt. Only reason why you'd be mad is if you dislike Keenan and the video does show that he doesn't look like a 4.7 guy. I myself also form my opinion from experts that i trust like Mayock. and Mayock have clearly said he's been clocked at 4.5. So go cry about it.

No I don't have strong feeling about Allen one way or the other and my opinion isn't that important. I don't believe that a guy who has never been timed in college running a 4.5 on a track with no impedence runs faster on the field with full equipment dodging defenders. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out. Mayock is like everyone else, he decides what he likes and then fits the circumstances to defend his choices. He has all over Allen for awhile so when he runs slow, Mayock makes excuses. Just like when he didn't like Cam and Cam did so well, he made excuses the whole time he grudgingly admitted he was wrong. They all do it to save their reputation.

What a hypocritical post. Mayock is one of the experts your refering to and he's said Allen is a 4.5 guy on tape. Chuck posted his opinion and did not pass it off as factual. He did a good thing by posting a video to support his opinion. You comparing him to Dwayne Jarett is ludicrous and you act like that's a fact as if your some expert.

If you listen to the experts like Brandt who has Allen as his number 1 receiver in his hot 100 piece btw then you would not suggest such off base statements.

If you don't want to hear fans opinions then what are you doing here?

I don't care if a person has an opinion and I think everyone has a right to voice one. I do sometimes tire of folks here acting like they are an expert without any credentials to back it up. I tell you up front, I am no expert just a fan. You know the pseudo experts, I am talking about, like guys spending pages pointing out irrelevent facts and trying to do pseudo analyses trying to act as if they know what they are talking about. You know who I mean....................

i know what he said, but I don't believe that looking at tape on a field is accurate enough to be able to determine hundreds of a second which is what he is doing. One step or two or a few yards here or there can change a time 2 tenths of a second which is the blink of an eye. I can determine anything I want about numbers if I already have a preconceived notion and then go about trying to confirm what I want to do. Besides, the real point is that everyone assumes he will get back to 100% which isn't guaranteed. Right now he is a 4.7 guy coming back from injury. Lets see him run 4.5 now and it is relevant. Until then, it is speculation that he will be back to 100%.

FWIW He is listed at 4.56 on his recruiting profile. And he DOES look like a mid 4.5 guy on the field....

http://rivals.yahoo....nan-Allen-81728

Sites put up projected times all the time because he ran one in high school or he was timed in practice one time. The point of a combine is to standardize things and make things more objective. Pro days are

notorious for always showing better times. Coincidence?? I don't think so............

Normally the times actually come from recruiting camps but your point is valid. My point is when I watch a guy like Hopkins who is a "confirmed" 4.5 guy and watch Allen, I don't see large differences in term of burst off the line, straight line speed, speed out of breaks etc....

Whos you to say he doesn't look like a 4.5 guy in those highlights. And you're disagreeing with Mayock's words?

You sound like a hypocrite. Acting like you know more than others around here with "no credentials to back it up". The ones pointing the fingers always are the hypocrites.

Why are you acting like you're an expert? From the person accusing people of trying to be experts. Pretty funny

As time goes on, I think we should just sit back and pick whichever falls to us in the second. Unless there is a huge run on WR in the first, we should pick the best DT/Safety/CB available, and then grab Hopkins/Allen/Patterson in the second, one of them is going to slide.

I don't know about you but I would have a hard time determining the difference between the two when we are talking tens of a second. Watching film is always relative to the other players, field conditions, whether he has just run 3 long routs and is tired , etc. That is partly my point. Without a bionic eye how could you tell the difference between a guy running a 4.5 and 4.7 really. The only way I have seen this really work is having guys run the exact same route on the same field and superimposing them next to each other and you can see the difference. Otherwise the differences are too subtle to be able to see anyway for most everyone. Particularly casual fans.

Read the earlier post where I said I was a fan and not an expert. If you think I act and talk like an expert then thanks for the compliment but I am surely not. I am just a fan like you and others. I am one of the few here who readily admit it.

Why the circular arguments? I never said he looked like a 4.5 guy or didn't. I said I don't believe that trying to determine the difference between a 4.5 and 4.7 guy by watching game film is accurate to say one or the other definitive. I said he ran 4.7 and Mayock is making excuses to justify his position. What happened to everyone being able to have an opinion.....

Everyone here admits they talk as fans that's why we're all in a fuggn fantasy forum man. If you think anyone here including myself talked like an expert, thank you too for the compliments. You're such a hypocrite.

So if you point the finger at me like you are doing, does that make you the hypocrite?
