    I am not certain how accurate the report is, but if it is, Johnson claims he can beat Usain Bolt(fastest man in the world) in a 50. Now, Chris Johnson is good at what he does, but football is so different than track and field. Johnson was always good, but he was not the catalyst for the titans until Vince Young was given the job to be the starting quarter back after the team was down 0-6. Why am i mentioning this? Well, perhaps if things did not turn around for the Titans (where they have a slim chance of getting a wild card and making it to the playoffs) we wouldn't be talking about Johnson!He perhaps would've been deemed irrelevant-no? Anyway, i think he's grossly overrating himself and taking it a bit too far to even say he can beat Bolt. Nothing wrong with a little confidence, but that's a little bit too much for me.


    Anyway, bit sleepy so going to bed...ciao!
    Let me know what you think.....

    im rather surprised to hear him say that.  i think he was just talking trash though.  i don't think he could beat usain bolt since track and field is completely different from football.  sure with his running back position there are similarities, but its not to the same.  one sport, track, primarily involves endurance combined with speed.  while the other, nfl, involves peripheral vision and the ability to run routes.  in fact, you don't have to be the fastest running back to be successful in the nfl as great running backs like Emitt Smith and that one guy nicknamed "the bus" whom played for the steelers. i forget his name, but he wasn't fast, but he was still an elite running back.  where as track, you have to be fast all the time. 

    plus, your right about what you said about if it weren't for vince young being there.  if vince young didn't play as well as he did, to open up the passing game, so johnson could explode running the ball.  teams would just blitz the hell out of them so johnson couldn't run at all.  however, since young is proving to be the prolific passer since getting another shot, its opening things up for the running game.

    Usain makes his big break away at the 50 thats why he said that. After he gets his stride its bye bye and he knows it. He's probably able to hang or even beat until the 50 mark but then noone can catch that dude. I'm sure CJ ran track in college and probably could make a good bid in a shorter race based on the fact he's smaller , lightweight compared to Usain. It's all about inertia at the start and thats why UB can get himself going after hes broken that. While CJ is lighter is able to break inertia and accelerate quicker at the start UB is using his bigger frame for 'whats in motion tends to stay in motion' JMO! CJ(better acceleration) UB( better top speed)

    Chris Johnson faster than Usain Bolt, I would actually buy paperview for that haha. The speed that Bolt runs is crazy but when watching Johnson on the field, it doesn't look that diffrent. They both look like lightning hahaha. A very bold statement by Johnson though and the only waty to prove it is to go head to head with the fastest man on earth.
