    First of all, who cares what Softli thinks? He has never timed Blackmon. He's just guessing.

    That said, the answer to your question is yes, I would take him even if his 40 time is 4.55.

    Doubtful. I'm not at all sure if Pettis was chasing women that with his 4.65 forty he could even catch one. Heck, many of 'em can run at least a 4.5...some in heels too.

    That being the case it seems quite a waste of a prescription if you ask me....

    How fast does he run in a game for a ball? That is all I care about. I am pretty sure Jerry Rice did not have blazing "timed speed" but I saw enough of him to know that during game, he was fast.

    "Rams wide receiver Austin Pettis has been suspended for four games for violating NFL rules on performance-enhancing substances. Pettis will miss the final two games of this season, and the first two games of next season, without pay."

    Thomas forgot to add, "and no one will notice."
    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!!

    That's about the same (or faster) than Jerry Rice and Larry Fitzgerald. So yea, if he has the skills and drive, a 4.55 is not a deal-breaker.

    Pettis deserves a refund.

    If confirmed, which apparently already is, then: you STUPID rookie, get out of my face!!!

    What a FOOL. And I don't mean for "getting caught".

    This is laughable... Seriously! Being a rookie and already getting caught into this. -- Jockelite

    I dont watch many college games but if he consistantly runs past and away from d backs ill take him if he ran a 5 flat 40.

    I have never been a fan of his, I thought it was a bad pick from the get go. He's young, but its looking like another wasted pick.

    Hell yeah I'll take blackmon if he ran a slow forty.. he has physical things you can't teach. He has a great mentality and can jump .. I also love how he doesn't mind going through the middle

    When our new coach comes in, cutting Pettis I'm sure will be one of his first moves.
