Antonio Pittman

So who would've thought that Antonio Pittman would run the 3rd fastest 40 times at the combine for a running back? Not I.

I think a lot of folks are going to go back and see if his 40 time translates to field speed. I underestimated his speed and I watched him about as close as anyone, but now all those plays where he got the left corner seem to make more sense.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.

I stand corrected, according to official times, he ran the fastest 40 for a running back (tied with Chris Henry of AZ and AP of OU).

Speed has never been Pittman's problem.

I think he will have a solid NFL career, similar to Eddie George

There is speed, and then there is running the same 40 time as AP. I am not saying he is as good as AP or has as big of an upside, but I think he has definetly helped himself by turning in the best time on the same track (not at a Pro Day).

He did very well in the other speed drills too.
