    Matt in a repeat performance from last year, saves a touchdown on a kickoff, catching the guy from behind.

    On the next series, Devin Hester was returning a punt for a touchdown, but tripped over his own feet. If you watch the replay you can see Giordano- closing in on Hester and would have caught him had he not tripped.

    I had the same thoughts KJV1. I wonder how often he is the fastest player in the game. Maybe in the majority of games he plays.

    Giordano was drawing compliments from the announcers several times for his play on the field. It would be nice if he was given the starting job alongside Bob Sanders.

    Wow that is pretty amazing to hear that he is faster than Devin Hester b/c he is known as probably the best return man in the league even ahead of Dante Hall. Giordano is on the Colts correct? So that should bold well for him b/c Dungy seems to be one of the few coaches who will play the best players even if they have melanin deficiencies.

    Matt had an INT saturday, but I also think he got hurt, let's hope it doesnt hinder him too much.

    It's interesting to read his bio and see the caste system at work. From Wikipedia:

    High School Years
    Attending Buchanan High School in Clovis, California, Giordano played a key role as team co-captain in Buchanan's inaugural Valley championship in 2000. As a senior, he had five interceptions and 64 tackles while causing three fumbles, and averaged nine yards per carry and 12.6 yards per reception on offense. He broke Buchanan records for longest punt return for a touchdown, most blocked kicks and most interceptions in a game. He was a two-time all-conference first-team choice and was also named the Defensive Player of the Year by the Clovis Exchange Club and Buchanan High's Most Outstanding Player in football and track in 2001. Giordano was also crowned individual league champion in the 400 meters in 1999.

    Junior College Years
    Giordano attended Fresno City College for two years. He won All-State honors as a freshman, was a two-time All-Conference pick, and was the Defensive MVP in the Northern California Championship game.

    NCAA College Career
    He played football with the California Golden Bears. As a senior, Giordano won All-Pacific-10 Conference first team honors, and was an All-American honorable mention. During his career, he had two interceptions, six pass deflections, one sack, 111 tackles (four for losses), two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery.

    Personal
    Giordano was married March 4th, 2005 to Laura Enns of Clovis. He was an American Studies major. His great-grandfather is Italian born Ralph Giordano (Also known as Young Corbett III) who was a world welterweight boxing champion in 1933 Matt is the son of Victor and Janet Giordano.

    This kid was underrated at every level of competition, yet he overcame and was a star.

    The announcers generally ignore him when he runs down a fast black player. Ignoring fast white players seems to be a trend with them. They act like it didn't happen.

    So fast, he completely took off during last nights game after he intercepted the ball. There was no hope of anyone catching up to him.

    I could have swore that was Lance Alworth in a Colts uniform running down the sidelines with that INT. That cat's explosive!

    That's beyond pathetic. QS, do you remember his quote and the context in which it came up (probably on NFL Live)?

    It was on NFL Live. He was narrating the highlights of the game and at the time of Matt's pick he threw in the little commentary. He said he is not fast but he is blah blah blah. I zoned out for a split second and missed the last part of the statement. Maybe he was offering a caste acceptable explanation for his great play. Sean Salisbury wasn't much help, he said he was fast enough though.

    Not fast huh? lol Apparently the definition of "fast" to ESPN employees must include the phrase "dark complexion" in it.[img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img] I was watching Matt's strides across the yardlines on the field. He has an easy 4.3 time, and maybe even a faster time such as 4.28 or 4.29. You could just tell by the way he blew so far past everyone, that he was the FASTEST man on the field. Reggie Bush and the rest of his "gang" (pun INTENDED...lol) of black affaletes could have been in a Cadillac, and they still wouldn't have caught up to him.[img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img]

    His closing speed on that first one is incredible.

    I read that Giordano's 40 time is 4.48. I would think that he is definately faster than that.

    KJV1,

    Great hit on that video.

    If things go the way they usually do in the NFL, Giordano'll be waived about Wed. and nobody will pick him up.
