He ran almost a 4.6 forty time. That's not the fastest. Gettis ran a 4.2 forty

i doubt Gettis is running 4.2's anymore after his injury- hopefully im wrong and he is the sole reason we didnt go after a WR in the draft

A 4.39 is almost a 4.6?

Also Gettis ran a 4.4 something at the combine.

Sproles.

You saw what happened to SD's O when he left for NO.

Rivera know what those guys can give you.

The reason why Sproles is so dangerous is because despite his size, he is a really good pass protector.

Without that piece of his game, he is not a dangerous.

Most of the smaller guys can't do what he does. Check out Darren's base, it's much wider and stout than most of the scat backs.

Kid is short, not small.

I think that if used properly he could add that game-breaking element to our offense that we haven't had receiving wise out of the back field at any point I can remember. Like many suggest I'd like to see him utilized much the same way Sproles is featured in NO.

DeAngelo showed that homerun ability late in the season when he was given the chance on designed screens, but given his age/contract I'm glad we brought a 6th rounder who's proven to be durable, as well as a great runner over +1,700 yds as just a runner is impressive to me! To fill that scat/change of pace role once we likely part ways with Williams after the conclusion of the up-coming season.

Half of our WR roster is slower than Armanti?

I'd like to see him in system, if thats how we're going to use him. It would make our offense that much more dangerous. In addition, I like what Gettleman did here. He's planning now for next year when we trade D Will or Stew. Personnally, I know the Huddle is hung on Stew over D Will, but Stew can't stay healthy the entire season. We'll see where it goes...

Armanti Edwards isn't really slow despite what huddle experts say.
