Darrell Green’s Lost a Step, Still Runs 4.4

Ten years ago, at age 40, Darrell Green was still the fastest man in football, and proving it by doing this:

Today, Green turns 50 years-old. And he celebrated by going out to a track in Orlando, Florida at 9 a.m. and doing this:

Quick update from the Birthday Boy:) I think today I became the fastest 50 year old in the world! @9AM today, I celebrated my 50th BDay….. By running the 40 yard dash in Orlando, Florida in a time of 4.43!

So, he loses .2 on his 40 time every 10 years. At this pace, Green will still be running a faster 40 time than us even if he lived to be 160.

    I’d take a 50-year-old DG for Justin Tryon straight up.

    why is DG28 not on this coaching staff teaching these young fools on how to be a db, how to catch (can show Santana Moss as well)

    Careful what you wish for, Mike; DG coached Tryon up last offseason, and it didn’t seem to do much good.

    I thought Tryon showed a little improvement. The year before last he got beat literally everytime he was on the field. At least this year he wasn’t picked on quite so much.
