this is kinda hard, some people might underestimate soccer players but theres guys like robinho on brazil or cristiano ronaldo on portugal who are fast as fu*k...
ill say NFL players are faster cuz all of the cornerbacks like de angelo hall and ppl like mike vick are unbelievably quick..
good topic though props

yea, it's kinda hard to judge something like this. soccer you running and trying to dribble at the same time. in football, it's rare that you're ever running in a straight line, so it's hard to tell. and i'm guessin tempus has never played a minute of soccer in his life, and that's where he came up with his answer. he kinda made that sound like it was a proven fact!

i think nfl players are certainly faster but soccer players are like marathon runners, they can run all day with no breaks... but in a sprint i'll take an rb or a wr over a striker or a winger

....is this a trick question?



deion once ran the 40 in 4.06 seconds.....ben johnson...who famously broke the 100m world record in the 80's at 9.86...his 40 time in that race was clocked at 4.3 somethin.....ponder that sh*t for a little while


moral of the story is, many nflers coulda been world track legends but clearly chose the higher paying of the 2 sports.

dont pay too much mind to them 40 yard times.. Most of them are wrong and skewed. And the hand timed ones are... well- hand timed.


sh*t i've even run a sub 4.5 40 yard dash but that doesnt really mean anythin

oh and just to further prove my point.....how many 100m sprinters do u see without a substancial amount of muscle mass/ripped upper body??.......none.

its not just coincidence....a top class sprinter needs to be built above the waist just as much as below it.

soccer players are nowhere near a physical upper body of a football player.

regardless....there are usually a handful around 4.3...which are pretty ridiculous speeds.

and my other point about muscular upper body...its obvious football players are the faster runners. soccer players would win the stamina side tho.

Although his tackling technique was poor and his covering technique was unconventional, his blanketed shadow of a receiver aided by his blinding speed (timed at 4.06 in the 40-yard dash) and athleticism made up for it

@ da question....

Fact:i'll take my chances with any position on the soccer field could run faster than every kicker/punter/linemen/some rb/some qbs

Fact:there's more faster soccer players than football players



don't forget that soccer players are also dribbling and protecting the ball while running, while someone in the nfl is holding the ball using their arms and hand.
close thread

Ben Johnson broke the record using steroids.
And I highly doubt Sanders ran that fast.

k forget about the 40 times for a second ppl....cuz altho there are claims deion ran in it ______ seconds...no one really knows how accurate it was cuz it sure as hell wasn't official.


but no one's addressed my point about muscular strength and sprinting. soccer players, for the most part...actually a very high percentage...are not ur typical muscular beasts up top....whereas nflers theres a large percentage that are ripped to shreds cuz liftin is like their religion aside from the feild. its the one sport where significant time in the weight room is absolutely mandatory pretty much daily aside from their day offs (monday and sometimes tuesday).

and to the brilliant soccer poster above...no one's comparin kickers or punters, or linemen or tightends or qbs, etc lol. get real. we talkin primarily 2 positions, in rare cases 3. DB's and WR's...and then sometimes runningback's yet most of the time they much bigger and thicker which would hurt their speeds.

but no....db's.....i guarantee run faster than soccer players....ur not factoring in upper body strength. and football players upperbody strength is >>>> than a soccer players. again...any top sprinter is built like no ones business...so don't tell me u don't need this crucial aspect in order to be a faster runner.
