@ Fitzgerald being a "slow possession WR"
@ Fitzgerald being a "fast speed WR"
he is a possession WR...PERIOD
and his speed is very below average for an NFL WR...
in fact (just a guess) he might be the SLOWEST #1 WR in the entire NFL...I can't think of any that are slower...
the 40 is overrated in determining "TALENT"....not "SPEED"
if you run a 4.2 then YOU ARE F*CKIN FAST...
