Sorry, I'm really bored. These combine numbers belong to Von Miller, Knowshon Moreno, Tim Tebow and Virgil Green. Try to match the player to his numbers. No cheating.

I would love to play, but I have Tebow's combine numbers memorized. I've also gone off the deep end and compared 10 yard splits.

P.S. Tebow's 10 yard split is faster than all of those players, faster than Mark Ingram's, and would have been the fasted RB 10 yard split at this year's combine.

Thanks, 40-times and bench press numbers were removed to protect the innocent.

It was fun, but I just cheated like a mo-fo. Didn't see that until after.

It's hard enough even if you cheat. You need a starting idea to verify it.

That confirms the suspicion I've had actually watching Tebow play: the guy accelerates like nobody's business. It's funny too, because with his 40 time many were saying he wouldn't be able to run like he did in college because he was too slow. Then he actually plays and I could only laugh at the talking heads once again. Tebow may not have the ability to break off 80 yarders, but he's a nightmare on those 10-15 yard runs which are what really matter anyway.

Same four players. Match the player to the 10-yard split time at the combine (the player's time for the first 10 yards of the 40 he ran).

1.62
1.57
1.53
1.55

P.S. I was wrong about Tebow having the fastest 10-yard of those four. Two of the four would have had the best 10-yard split of any RB at the 2011 combine.

That's it exactly -- he does not have a gazelle-like stride to open it up down the field, but at close range he is incredibly explosive and fast. Especially for a 245 pound man.

I'm going to guess Von Miller had the best. Great pass rushers need superhuman acceleration.

Pretty sure Tebow's is #2.

Moreno is #1 I believe.

No idea on the other two.

Ding! Ding! Ding! Winner. When I looked at the numbers, I didn't know whether to be happy about Tebow's remarkable short-area explosion or depressed about Moreno's complete lack of it.

Nope. Knowshon's was the 1.53.

Wrong Match Game. I was hoping it would have something to do with Gene Rayburn and Charles Nelson Reilly...

Lies Tim Tebow would never allow the mark of the beast to characterize his athletic ability. This is obviously some sort of Masonic BS trying to destort the chosen ones image. 6.66 really?

Please tell me Knowshon didn't really have a 25" vertical.

That seriously has to be from not even trying... Guaranteed my girlfriend can eclipse that...

That's a good attribute to have as a TE.

Moreno would have been the only one I would have gotten right on that one, cause I remember he had a lower high jump than Brandstatter.
