    The clue there is "stopwatch"; it's a hand time, and probably a bad one. Absolutely meaningless.

      The fastest 40 I know of for Bullet Bob Hayes was a hand timed 4.4. I 'm guessing that was ran on a grass football field. As we know Hayes was a 5.9 world record holder in the old 60 yarder. As we also know he was no slouch as a starter. He wasn't like a Carl Lewis who gained on everyone at the end, he was out quickly. So if the great Bullet Bob Hayes is stuck in 4.4ville I have a real hard time accepting a 4.22 from a..."who?" If somebody got the jump on Hayes he could probably have cooked a 4.3 but that would still pale in comparision to ..."who?"
