I love the guy. Was he ever that fast? He was a 4.5 guy, Sullivan said of Bruce. He’s one of the top five receivers in the history of the league. He was very sudden, very quick, very elusive, good skills running with the ball. Was he super-fast? No. But he played faster than anyone and was never caught.
