Trindon Holliday proclaims there’s no one faster than him in the NFL

The man who didn’t lose a game in the 2012 regular season also believes he wouldn’t lose a race against any other NFL player.

Broncos receiver and kick returner Trindon Holliday, who between stints in Houston and Denver went 16-0, visited Pro Football Talk on Monday and said that he runs as fast as anyone in the league.

“Right now to be honest with you I don’t think there’s none in the NFL that’s faster than me,” Holliday told Erik Kuselias.

Technically, this means that there could be players as fast as Holliday.  But he opted not to try to list the others who could at least tie him.

Unfortunately, there’s no way for Holliday or anyone to prove it.  Unlike the old days, when footraces among pro football players were a made-for-TV event.

Actually, that would be far more interesting than the return of a certain sport that entails a lot of standing around and adjusting of cups.

  1. This quote reminds me of the line Darnell Dockett gave a couple years ago, advising young players to “don’t never be a punk.”

  2. Well, we do know there’s no one on the Raven’s Special Teams that is as fast as him. One punt return and one kickoff return for TD’s in one game.
    If only Denver had safeties who could keep their feet under them it could of been a fun game to watch.

  3. only Jeff Demps(Pats) and Jacoby Ford(Raiders) are on his level. This is not speculation, they all were stars at the same time in the ncaa track scene. Good and Holiday meet in the 100 meters final with Holiday winning. He was the 100m champ when he left college…His starts are off sometimes, so his 40 wouldn’t be good to measure him on. But from 30 to 100 there’s not a player in the league seeing him. I’m sure Chris Johnson would beat him the first 25m or so but Holiday would walk him down the rest of the way.

  4. “Actually, that would be far more interesting than the return of a certain sport that entails a lot of standing around and adjusting of cups.”

    I have never agreed with you more.

  5. I would bet that at least 30 guys are faster in the 40 yd and maybe 50 guys in the 100 yd… 4.34 is good, but not the fastest… not even close. People in the combine are beating 4.34…

  6. He might be one of the fastest people in the world at his height. It is truly amazing how fast he is for his height. Most people with world class speed are a little taller.

  7. Being the fastest doesn’t mean anything if it doesn’t translate to the field.

    Many players have claimed to be the fastest in the NFL and no one remembers their name now, except maybe for a punch line of a joke like James Jett.

  8. @sasattack

    That other ‘sport’ is 20 minutes of action packed into a 3-hour game. They ask you to stand 2/3 of the way through it just to wake you up. They don’t even call it a sport….it’s a ‘pastime’.

  9. Technically, this means that there could be players as fast as Holliday. But he opted not to try to list the others who could at least tie him.

    If we wanted to be really technical, he’s actually saying that he’s NOT the fastest player in the league. You see the double negative saying that he don’t think there’s none faster than him, is actually saying that he thinks there are some faster than him. if you think none are faster than you than you think your the fastest. if you DON’T think none are faster than you, then you think you’re NOT the fastest.

  10. Fastest guy in the league, yet still just a special teamer?

    Clearly you have deficiencies as a ballplayer.

  11. He might be the fastest player in the NFL right now, but he’d only be the 2nd fastest player on that powerhouse program at Northern Iowa.

    But seriously, who cares? Dude’s been cut 4 times in 3 years.

    At that rate, he might be the fastest former NFL player before long.
