Yea, thats a perfect way to intrduce a track star into a football having 11 250 pound guys runnig at you trying to knock the crap out of you. Talking about needing to have good foot work and vision.

Re: Usain Bolt

I guess other people are thinking about this, including NFL execs.

ESPN - Could Olympic sprinter Bolt to the NFL? - AFC West

Re: Usain Bolt

Nevermind the NFL speculation, his run was remarkable especially when you consider he coasted the last 20+ meters or so. It was one of those outstanding sports achievements that don't get quite the appreciation they deserve

Re: Usain Bolt

Do I see a possible Colt to Bolt connection in the Redskins future?

Re: Usain Bolt

I have to admit his speed does intrigue me but let's face it looking at past sprinters turned WRs, the odds of him becoming a great WR are very slim. Ron Brown is the only one I can remember that was decent to good.

Another thing to consider is the NFL contract set up. If this guy is young with a very bright track and field future ahead of him with the potential to become the greatest sprinter in history with all the potential endorsements and fame that could follow (yes, U.S. and International companies can market him) why would he want to get his body beat to hell in the NFL with a contract that has only a modest signing bonus guaranteed compared to what he could make in future endorsements and still be able to walk at 50? Plus the man has been a sprinter all his young adult life, he has never played football. This in his world would be taking a huge risk/gamble.

More than likely in my opinion he would stick with track even if offered an NFL contract. He would be wise to do so.

As the resident Jamaican on the board, I can tell you that he is not at all interested in playing football

Re: Usain Bolt

I recall, from a Monday Night Football broadcast from many moons ago, that sprinters always have issues when trying to become wide receivers. One reason being that you're never sure that they can catch (obviously). However, the bigger issue is that sprinters tend to bob their head when they run, as an NFL receiver you can't afford to do this because then the ball will be moving all over your field of vision and it will throw off your hand eye coordination. As a receiver your head must be far more still when you're running, sprinters have trouble adapting to a new running style.

Re: Usain Bolt

How can Usain Bolt play in the NFL is he is anchoring the Jamaican bobsled team at the next Winter Olympics?

Re: Usain Bolt

He just won the 200 and cemented himself as the best sprinter in history. Actually ran through the finish line this time before celebrating.

Definitely cocky enough to be an NFL WR.
