John Harbaugh is not impressed with Manti Te’o’s 40-time


Yes, 40-yard-dash times probably carry more weight than they should.  But things have been slowly tumbling downhill for Manti Te’o since he lost the Heisman to Johnny Manziel. His team got rocked in the National Championship game, and he played terribly.  Then his world was blown to bits and he was placed in the spotlight when it came out his girlfriend was never real.  Then on Monday he went to run his 40-yard-dash and proved to be slower than people expected.  It was hoped by many that he would run a 4.75 to offset his 6’1″ 240 lbs frame, but unfortunately he ran an unofficial time of 4.81 and 4.80.  Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh was unimpressed with his 40-yard-dash, and Te’o better pray that his official time is somehow magically lower.

UPDATE: Manti Te’o’s official 40-yard-dash time is 4.82. Not good for him.

    Who cares what John thinks? Maybe he wants a MLB that was indicted on murder charges and then pretend to be religious after the fact. The Ravens may have won the Super Bowl but they still are classless in my book/

      Yeah, the Niners are way classier, what with employing and celebrating a convicted woman beating felon (LaMichael James) and benching a pro bowl caliber QB with a BS reason because the head coach wanted “his guy,” the ridiculously tattood and simple minded CK (captain fumble/delay of game), playing. No franchise abdicates class like the Niners…well, save for maybe the Raiders.

      You are an idiot. Point blank. 1st off John Harbaugh didnt draft Ray Lewis. Second Ray face his day in court that why we have a legal system. Third who are you to judge anybody? Fourth were you there that night do you know what happen? If not you should shut the F up.

    Wow, that is really slow. There were offensive lineman running faster than that. Heck, I bet I could still beat him, and I’m almost 50.

    Just what the hell is different between 4.75 sec. and 4.81sec.? Oh, the 0.11 between the helmet to helmet blow and a clean tackle. Guess which time would deliver the flagged call? (Hint: It’s not the slower time)

      Ask Eddie Lacy how many extra yards that 0.11 difference gave him

    Joe Flacco is going to win 6 superbowls by the end of his career!
