    I bet Bolt comes close to 4 flat in the 40.
    Don't forget, in track the runner reacts to the gun, in football the stopwatch reacts to the runner. There is AT LEAST a 1/10th of a second in that flip-flop.
    CJ also said if he trained for the 100m he 'might" beat him there. That's truly a joke. I highly doubt CJ2k could break 10 flat.

    probably a good point, but its been discussed during the last two olympics that he comes on strong at the end and isnt as quick out of the box as the others. Ofcourse the others are olympic sprinters and not football players so who knows. im not sure if it would be close to 4.0 but i have seen some calculations that put it around 4.1, adjusting for his reaction time (.165) and 40m (4.65) to 40 yards but thats including the blocks which have to add a good bit i would assume. I dont think its as unlikely as it seems at first glance.

    if he trained for the 100m, i agree, probably not a chance. especially if the above is correct and they run similar times at 40m and Bolts strength is the final 60m.

    I like Demps but we'd have to find a spot for him.

    Comfortable with Rice, Pierce and Demps?

    Why would Bolt come to the NFL? He doesn't need the money, he is already making more than any NFL wide receiver. He is an international star, playing in the NFL wouldn't do much to boost his popularity. Didn't the Cowboys or someone offer him a contract 4 years ago?

    LOLOLOLOLOL

    In another life Chris Johnson may have, but it would be virtually impossible for anybody with at least a few years of NFL experience and wear and tear to compete against world class sprinters who have been able to focus on running and not get hit for an entire football season.
