Default Who's the fastest player in the NFL?

The episode of the ABC reality show "Shaq Vs.," featuring Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson airs tonight at 9 o'clock. As we have told you previously, the show was taped this spring in Los Angeles.

In the weekly show, Shaquille O'Neal faces other athletes or entertainers in their chosen field.

In this episode, O'Neal is joined by Jackson, the Titans' Chris Johnson and Dwight Howard , of the Orlando Magic, for a 200-meter race against Tyson Gay.

CJ
DeSean
Hester
Heyward-Bey
CJ Spiller
Ted Ginn

And AD and Mega aren't that far behind the ones you listed

It is probably some scrub like Johnny Knox or Johnnie Lee Higgins. I honestly think those guys are arguably faster than Chris Johnson and DeSean Jackson. Nobody mentions them because they are scrubs and CJ and Jackson are studs.

Default Re: Who's the fastest player in the NFL?

After watching the clip of the Shaq vs. Gay race, and then the relay, it was pretty obvious it was staged.

I know this is a meaningless made for TV event, but what I took from it.

1. Althought I knew he was one of the best pure athletes in the world, Dwight Howard is even faster than I thought he was.

2. Gay's time in what was supposed to be a 60m was 6.09. The WR is 6.39, so Gay didn't run a full 60m. I know that isn't really important, just found it interesting.

3. In the relay it didn't look like CJ or DJ were particularly running their hardest.

4. Shaq and Gay received the baton at virtually the same time, yet Shaq almsot somehow beats him? Yeah, right. Gay is the fastest man in America and the 2nd or 3rd fastest in the world, yet he needs a lean over the finish line to beat a 7'+ 350 pound late 30's basketball player? It was very obvious that Gay shortened his stride for a second or towards the end of his leg and timed it where he could use his lean to beat Shaq.

Anyway, I'd love to see what many feel to be the 8 fastest players in the NFL and have them race in a 100m dash.

Something else I've always thought would be interesting would be for the NFL to pick 8-10 guys and the NBA pick 8-10 guys and compete in a T&F decathlon. I know that it would never happen, but it would make for great must see TV.

I never said anything about Deion, who never got burned by Green...but if you are talking about Moss he ran a 4.22, which is faster than CJ...

Moss was a track star dude...his speed in his prime was completely freakish...

do your homework before you decide to call me out...

Lol Prime that was not RocSteady. That was my friend. ROCSteady, an English buff, would never have spelled Deion incorrectly

I remember quite well Viking Moss and his streaks as well
