      If Green was in his prime and he played today he would be the fastest man in the NFL.

    • sydboski

      @PoliteChickens This is about who ran the fastest period. That is fastest with no restrictions. You are adding a restriction when you talk about being in equipment. Hines was the fastest man to ever play in the NFL. No one has run faster. Here is a list of the 10 fastest players in NFL history 7 of those players ran faster than Green:.
      1. Jim Hines 9.95 9/14/1968 (Dolphins 1969 - Chiefs 1970)
      2. Trindon Holliday 10.00 6/10 & 12/2009 (Texans, Broncos, Raiders)
      3. Jeffrey Demps 10.01 6/28/2008 (Buccaneers)
      Jacoby Ford 10.01 6/10/2009 (Raiders)
      5. Bob Hayes 10.06 10/15/1964 (Cowboys, 49ers)
      Ron Brown 10.06 8/24/1983 (Rams, Raiders)
      7. Alvis Whitted 10.07 7/15/1996 (Jaguars, Raiders)
      8. Darrell Green 10.08 4/13/1983 (Redskins)
      9. Sam Graddy 10.09 5/12/1984 (Broncos, Raiders)
      10. Willie Gault 10.10 6/5/1982 (Bears, Raiders)
      All times are fully automatic times and are verified by the IAAF.

      sydboski maybe bob Hayes is Faster also some people put Jim Hines and the discussion but he didn’t really do a lot didn’t get any place to judge whether he could run with all that equipment on

    CJ was a great running back but not the fastest ever. Willie Gult Chicago, Darrell Green Washington, Ron Brown L.A Rams. Bo Jackson Tampa. Tyreek Hill KC. Byron Jones Dallas all are much much faster.

    • sydboski

      There are a lot of players faster than CJ2K. But Byron Jones is not one of them.

    Bob Hayes is the fastest player in NFL history. At the 1964 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Hayes won the 100 meter and broke the existing World Record with a time of 10.06 seconds.

    • sydboski
      sydboski 5 days ago

      Sorry to burst your bubble, but Hayes' record was broken in 1968 By Jim Hines on the night of speed with a 10.03. He went on to the Olympics and became thefirst human being to officially break the 10 second barrier by running 9.95. He immediately signed with the Dolphins and also played with the Chiefs.

      Stop it. Moss was run down from behind by Terence Newman. Moss did not have world class speed. Bit there were more than 25 world class sprinters that have played im the NFL. All of them were faster than Moss.

  • Taz Saalim
    Taz Saalim 8 days ago

    Bo Jackson was faster

    • sydboski
      sydboski 7 days ago

      @Taz Saalim There are only three methods of timing:
      1. Hand time (HT) Clock is started and stopped by hand.Before 1999 the NFL used this method EXCLUSIVELY to time their 40 yard dashes.
      2. Semi Automatic Timing (SAT) Clock is started by hand and stopped by laser. This method has been in use by the NFL combine since 1999. But pro days are still hand timed. SAT is 50% more accurate than HT.
      3. Fully Automatic Timing (FAT). Clock is started by a starter's pistol and stopped by laser.
      There is no electronic clocking method. Electronic is the way the time is displayed on a time clock or scoreboard.
      I never said Bo wasn't faster. He is faster. But that is because of their 100m time. Bo 10.44 to CJ's 10.66. Neither of those times are in the top 60 in NFL history.

    • Taz Saalim
      Taz Saalim 7 days ago

      @sydboski his 40 time isn't a myth, he confirmed it, they had both stop watches and electronics. Either way bo is faster

    • sydboski
      sydboski 7 days ago

      @Taz Saalim
      1. Bo's 40 is a myth. None of his times from different distances add up to him being that quick,
      2. If he ever ran the 40 it was hand timed and prone to human error. The NFL uses semi automatic timing since 1999. Everything before that was hand timed and no longer official.
      3. the 40 doesn't measure the top speed of these players. It only measures quickness and partial acceleration because they don't reach top speed til about 50m out. They are still accelerating at the 40yd mark. So the 40 cannot determine who is fastest when they aren't even running their fastest.
      When I say fastest I mean in a REAL race not a BS 40. The 100m dash determines who is the fastest in the entire world. Bo's best 100m dash is 10.44 which ranks him 62nd in NFL history among players with verified 100m dash times. CJ ran 10.66 which ranks him 78th.

  • Braden Rust

    Bo knows he truly has the fastest 40 time ever 4.13

    • sydboski
      sydboski 7 days ago

      @Braden Rustlol. There is no such timing method as electronic. There are only 3 timing methods hand time which is started and stoped by hand. Semi automatic timing which is still started by hand just stopped by laser. Fullt automatic which the clock is started by a starter's gun and stopped by laser. Electronic is the way the time is displayed on a time clock or scoreboard. All 3 of the timin methos can be displayed electronocally. The NFL used hand timing exclusively before 1999. In 1999 the swiched to semi automatic and still use that today. They have never used fully automatic timing. Strange how no one knows who these scouts were and no other player was timed that day. Harvey Glance has a pb of 5.73 in the 50m dash and a pb of 6.64 in the 60m dash. Bo has a pb of 5.78 in the 50m so it is fair to say Glance who was an actual world class sprinter was faster than Bo. Christian Coleman the world record holder in the 60m dash and the fastest starter ever ran 6.32. So it is fair to say he is faster than Glance.
      He also ran a semi automatic 40yd dash in 4.12. Now you explain to us all how Bo ran 4.12 or 4.13 depending on which myth you beleive.

    • Braden Rust
      Braden Rust 7 days ago

      @sydboski the electronic timer clocked him at 4.13 he ran track and was a multi world class athlete. The hand timers clocked him at rediculous 3.9 and 3.98 human error though so we cant rely on that. The electronic timer is accurate. It ain't a myth if over 20 nfl scouts can confirm they urged him to run it because they were curious he ran it once and sslew down the last 5 yards because they had it set up at the 50 yd line he told them he needed more room if they wanted him to run it seriously. So they opened the gate up and he ran straight out didnt slow down went straight to track practice had to race with an olympic track runner. Look up lance.

    • Braden Rust
      Braden Rust 7 days ago

      @sydboski bruh 20 nfl scouts or more watched him run it. Bo isnt the type of guy to blow smoke up his own ass. He denied the nfl combine because he figured there was no point when he knew he was gonna be taken #1 overall hell hed go #1 overall in this draft coming up.

    • sydboski
      sydboski 11 days ago

      All you have to do is look at their 100m times to see who was the fastest. That said, CJ's best 100m is 10.66 which ranks 78th in NFL history. Sanders 10.26 ranks 37th. Bo 10.44 ranks 62nd. Moss was run down from behind by 10.20 Terence Newman so he was not uncatchable.

    Bob Hayes is the fastest player in NFL history. He won the 100 metre sprint at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, running 10.06 on a cinder (Dirt!) track. There are no 40 times for Hayes, but ran a 60 yard dash in 5.28 seconds. In his era, no single defensive back could cover Hayes

    • sydboski
      sydboski 11 days ago

      @Zoned 247 Hines sucked at footballl. But he played in the NFL and was faster than Hayes. You cannot disagree with that. Football prowess has nothing to do with how fast you were.

    • Zoned 247
      Zoned 247 11 days ago

      @sydboski OK. We will have to agree to differ. Hines achieved jack shit in the NFL, whereas Hayes was universally feared, because he didn't just have track speed, he could actually play football.

    • sydboski
      sydboski 11 days ago

      Jim Hines ran 10.03 on dirt and cinders during the "Night of Speed" in 1968 at the AAU champs. This was before he became the first human to officially break the 10 second barrier at the 1968 Olympics when he ran 9.95.

      Hayes' 5.28 is a myth. Plus they said it was outside during practice. The 60 is an indoor race.
