I'm just tired of hearing about the combine. How often does a player run 40s without pads on. Or throw without pads on. And dan patrick made another good point every white guy that plays receiver that was workin out at the combine was considered a wes welker type. If that's not stereotypcle I don't know what is. I guess they all liked mayonase too. No white guy was a steve smith or hines ward type, a bunch of crap!

Got to keep the football hype going in the offseason to keep up interest in tickets sales and keep the fat beer bellies buying fake football jerseys.

It's all a big joke to make the league more money. I understand the weighing in and height check but the rest is garbage!

Dude I can see it helping teams decide who theyr draft as projects in the later rounds, but look at heyward-bey the raiders drafted him in the top 10 cause he had a good combine. He's ben beet out by louis murphy. But picks like that take an opportunity away from someone who does put it together on the field. It almost hurts the game cause too much thought goes into it
