On average soccer is faster but the fastest NFL players are faster than the fastest soccer players..

The more you run (stamina) doesnt make you faster.. Dudes who run the NYC marathon arent winning any sprints.. There is a difference between speed and endurance.. Soccer for the most part is endurance.. Being a wideout or a db is Speed..
OH WELL I THOUGHT RUNNING MADE YOU FAST I GUESS I WAS WRONG

I would say soccer players. soccer is an extremely demanding sport and its non stop running. you have to be fast in the shape of your life to even compete.

nfl they may be a bit faster, but look at the endurance.
soccer players hit the field and play for 90 minutes, only one break. they never stop moving.
football, the game is 60 minutes, but a single player isnt on the field more than half the time. they stop after every play, and have quarters and half breaks, time outs and players switch on and off field all the time.

see what's funny is, in football they time themselves running in soccer they don't, so u can never know how fast a soccer play runs, my brother plays football he is a full back and am a forward on a soccer team and I can burn him running backwards, and there was this defender that burnt me all the time and he never runned a day of track in his life, so am just gonna say u can't really answer this question until soccer players start timing their run

It IS a proven fact. A lot of football players could we world class sprinters, and were track stars at the high school or collegiate level. They're easily fster, while soccer players may be fast, but are more trained for distance

It definitely doesn't homie, just running during cross country season doesn't make you any faster. it's the sprinter based drills during track, like running 10 or 20 forty yard dashes as fast as possible that builds the muscle memory and fast twitch muscles that actually makes you faster/quicker. now i know there are a lot of fast soccer players, but aint no one touching some1 like a deion

lol....again to bring this point up...cuz why no ones addressing it i don't know...

olympic sprinters....maurice green, donovan bailey, michael johnson, etc etc etc....they're all built and are fairly big guys esp upper body and obviously their legs.

soccer players its very rare to find someone so big up top, or built like that. most of the ARE fit...i'm not debating that, and are ripped. but most are NOT big and fit as in huge chest, huge pipes, etc.

whereas football players are, db's and wr's....sh*t look at the man in my avy even...guys a physical specimen. there is a much higher prcentage of built big ripped players at WR, or DB then there are on the pitch in a soccer match. might be 1 or 2 guys that are big upper body's yet ripped too.

no ones questioning ON AVERAGE...soccer players are faster, cuz ur accounting for fat a.sses like linemen etc. we only talkin bout wr's and db's.

and i'ma take a db over any soccer player anyday...pretty much all of them were track stars in high school...well the ones selected in the first few rounds anyway.

I bet most soccer players run as fast as most tight ends or Outside Linebackers in the NFL, but nobody in the NFL could run for as long as they do in soccer

you cant really understand how fast soccer players are til u have actually played both
shootar-the whole thing about being ripped has nothing to do with them being so much faster

i know this doesnt count for everyone, but i played soccer for like 4 or 5 years when i was younger and in junior high i was one of the faster sprinters in the county and the fastest kid on our fball team QB-WR-DB, fastest kid in the county was at my skool, he played soccer and in 9th grade he ran a 11.1 100m
all state RB this year at our skool (fastest kid on fball team) got his speed from soccer when he was younger
all state WR last year (fastest then) played soccer all through JR high

i would say soccer players are right on average with WRs and DBs

@ 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

Mike Vick -- Reggie Bush -- Michael Bennet --- Warrick Dunn



Are you guys serious??? NFL players in the "Specials positions" (RB-QB-WR-DB-LB) are faster than soccar players. I'll put Steve Smith, Tory Holt- Deion (in his prime) -- Michael Vick -- And Reggie Bush againt the best Soccar has to offer. And they aren't even the faster players just the stars that stand out. Few years ago Cowboys had a WR who ran a 4 flat in the 40 and less than a 10 in the 100. No one ever heard of him because he can't catch for sh*t.

Quick question though. How many of you actually played football or soccar? And i dont mean on the streets of in H.S. because that don't mean sh*t.

it definetly does man....its no coincidence. in order to pump that fast and at the same time cut through the air without bein held back much by resistance...you need muscular strength and a great upper body just as much as lower body. u'll NEVER see a 100m champion skinny or not ripped, esp in the upper body. matter of fact....every olympics, the 8 guys runnin in the final all have big upper bodies. take a look at the last decades champions. they're all big/ripped.

skinnier folk run the longer distance races, 1500's, the 3000's and up, etc. I remember back in HS. i was a top cross country runner near the beginning of HS, end of elementary school. then late HS i realized i didn't have the body type for it....you needed to be real skinny to succeed at these races. My body type wasn't efficient enough for cross country competively nemore.

its the reverse with sprinting. skinny guys might be able to make it thru early HS, or even later on....but in terms of world wide, international, best of the best....they won't survive.
