I remember reading somewhere that Deion Sanders ran a 4.27 40 yard dash in his pre-draft combine, and I know Michael Vick ran something close to a 4.2 and his brother Marcus ran a 4.4...Originally Posted by Eyefarted2
There most definetly should be. Inagaki-sensei just doesnt throw in stuff he makes up
No, 4.2 is the human limit. And the lowest recorded 40 yard dash was a 4.27 by Dion Sanders (CB).
2 High School students(Shin and Sena) > than the whole NFL league... :\
Anyway, visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/40_yard_dash#Best_times
The best times are shown here.
thanks for the link *hoping to see sena's name on the list*
No, it's not. The fastest person in the world is close to 4.1-something electronically timed though 4.2 is the wall for nearly everyone.Originally Posted by Vietfan26
The only time someone has officially ran under a 4.2 (meaning with the electronic stuff to make it exact) he was on roids. So yea, but if you think about it. Sena's 40 is done by hand. So I wonder how different it would be if it was done electronically.
Done by Hiruma's hand, the same guy that could read a wristwatch from about 20 feet away. I'd say it'd be pretty accurate. :P
Wikipedia isn't a good source for things like NFL time (And a lot of other things). Notice that a lot of the times that approach 4.2 weren't even done officially but reported in practices. Coaches brag all the time to get some what of an edge, same way that Hiruma used to do in the beginning of the series. If there was ever a player to hit the 4.2 mark, we'd know about him.
Well, Bo Jackson did it back at the 86' (i believe) combine. It was 4.19 s. It was hand-timed though, and that's an old story.
Manga is Manga after all.
Still, the 40's not really a good measure of football speed. Change-of-pace, acceleration, power, all factor in. If sena went against a real NFL player he'd be outclassed.
Found this in the Wiki link. "Fast starting elite sprinters such as Powell (and others past and present) can run a "Football 40" in less than 4 seconds". This is because they subtracted some from the final time but still. Impressive.
Hell, that's scary... Wonder if Sena could end up doing that....

Also, Sena's running speed, change of pace, dodging and acceleration are top notch. If he weighed 100 more lbs he'd probably be the best RB ever.
Darrell Green ran an unofficial 4.09 in his prime. When he timed it during his last season, at the age of 42, he ran a 4.24, though this isn't counted as official as it was not at the combine. He recently celebrated his 50th birthday and ran a 4.43.
"No one chased down Tony Dorsett from behind... Darrell Green did. No one chased down Eric Dickerson from behind... Darrell Green did."
He was even able to chase Emmitt Smith down from behind. The last two running backs are both Hall of Famers. I'd say Darrell Green was indeed fast enough to run at least a 4.19 electronic time in his prime, though the method hadn't been introduced yet.
