Long is 6-foot-4 and 270 pounds. The experts say he'll run about a 4.8-second 40-yard dash. He smiles at what the experts say. Adams, 6-4¾ and 258 pounds, ran a 4.66-second electronically timed 40 in Indianapolis, the best time of the 50 defensive linemen at the combine last year. Moss, 6-6½ and 250, ran a 4.78. Long won't say what he thinks he'll run, but if looks were confidence, he'd be as fast as Deion Sanders.
Purple emphasis mine. "If looks were confidence, he'd be as fast as Deion Sanders." To me, this reads:
1. Noel Devine's Role Model's speed was attributable to confidence. Not, you know, leg muscles.
2. Chris Long has looks comparable to Deion Sanders' confidence-level.
So, watch out, Brett Favre. Your unprecedented looks record (if looks were irresponsibility, Favre'd be as fast as Pacman Jones) doesn't look quite so safe now that Chris "they don't call him" Long "for nothing" is on the scene.
