Chris Johnson says he could beat Mike Vick in a race

Race

Last year, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy cajoled “old man” Mike Vick into a race.  Vick eventually accepted.  And smoked McCoy.

(McCoy later claimed Vick cheated.)

This year, one of Vick’s new teammates wants a crack at him.  Running back Chris Johnson recently told NFL.com, via Dom Cosentino of NJ.com, that Johnson could beat Vick in a footrace.

If Johnson wants to make it happen, he needs only to pepper Vick with taunts and insults until Vick accepts.  And then Vick needs to be ready to take off if an exhaust pipe backfires before the official gun goes off.

The better approach would be to not race at all, since a hamstring easily can pop when guys are showing off.

    If you’re concerned about winning a footrace, you aren’t concerned about winning games.

    Johnson got this.

    Vick smokes Johnson! I think that McCoy and Johnson are both just mad that Vick is a better runner than either of them ever were.

    Veteran savvy.

    Oh brother, here we go again. Another offseason of Chris Johnson mouthing off about footraces. I am sure he will follow this with another 2,500 yard guarantee.

  8. berniemadoffsides says: Jul 2, 2014 10:34 PM

    This would be a legendary showdown in all sincerity.

    love the rocky iv pic

  10. luz56 says: Jul 2, 2014 10:36 PM

    So the guy has one great year and it was special but what have you done lately?? Got some advice…shut your pie hole and help the jets make the playoffs… Nobody care who you can beat on a race.. Let’s see you contribute to the TEAM..

    $$$$$$$$$$… put it where our mouth is.

  12. drunkraider says: Jul 2, 2014 10:55 PM

    well at least Ron Mexico isnt over rated at a foot race.

    Maybe he can be remembered for that instead of being the most over rated QB of our time.

  13. blackqbwhiterb says: Jul 2, 2014 10:57 PM

    My money’s on Vick, but even today Darrell Green could take ‘em both! Hail

  14. pats777 says: Jul 2, 2014 10:58 PM

    3 ring circus.

  15. truthofthefootballbusiness says: Jul 2, 2014 10:58 PM

    I bet Chris Johnson could beat me in a foot race too, so what? Is that what he said to Bud Adams before he stole $30,000,000 from him and laid down on the football field?
    I wonder, are CJ2RichToCareAboutMyTeammatesK and Mesean Jackson BFFs??

  16. mazenblue says: Jul 2, 2014 11:04 PM

    Vick just pictures the ghosts of them dogs chasing him, nobody can beat him.

  17. brucetrimble says: Jul 2, 2014 11:23 PM

    Who cares about either player?

  18. hsteacher says: Jul 2, 2014 11:27 PM

    Why use the “Rocky” picture but have a “Seinfeld” reference? Seems odd.

  19. dkalev says: Jul 2, 2014 11:38 PM

    It’s rocky III guy

  20. micknangold says: Jul 2, 2014 11:43 PM

    If you’re concerned about winning a footrace, you aren’t concerned about winning games.

    Good logic.

  21. carlbrutananadilewski1986 says: Jul 3, 2014 12:01 AM

    They ripped this off from an episode of Playmakers

  22. Aaron Rodgers Has Tiny Hands says: Jul 3, 2014 12:09 AM

    “I choose not to run!”

  23. rascalmanny says: Jul 3, 2014 12:10 AM

    Man, if this is any indication, this season should be entertaining with CJ running his mouth so much.

  24. mrlitl says: Jul 3, 2014 12:19 AM

    It’s actually a Rocky III pic, although it was shown in a montage in Rocky IV.

  25. chinahand11 says: Jul 3, 2014 12:23 AM

    Boy, CJ is a regular chatterbox isn’t he? Like McCoy, he will be left behind in a cloud of “huh?” And yes, Darrell Green, come on over and join the fun.

  26. pancaketaco says: Jul 3, 2014 12:28 AM

    Rocky III. Training sequence getting ready for the James “Clubber” Lang rematch.

  27. epitaph04 says: Jul 3, 2014 12:40 AM

    For some reason I got memories of Culpepper vs Stanford Routt.

  28. kd75 says: Jul 3, 2014 12:47 AM

    This will happen. There will be bets made. Not a big deal.

  29. jpaq68 says: Jul 3, 2014 1:13 AM

    Whatever. Chris Johnson would say he could beat The Flash in a race.

  30. 1phillyphan says: Jul 3, 2014 1:20 AM

    Its a pic from Rocky III dumbass..Apollo is dead 15 mins into Rocky IV

    now back to the article..They both run fast..so what? Why does CJ2″K..an’t” insist on doing this every year?..dude, put your energy into making your team better..god knows they need you..better make sure Chris Ivory doesn’t get more carries then you…cuz he might…and it looks like geno and Mike might get more yrds then you as well

  31. jeremycrowhurst says: Jul 3, 2014 1:47 AM

    Maybe in November, when CJ is finally in shape….

  32. pittsburghdamned says: Jul 3, 2014 1:47 AM

    I’m confident a spelling bee would be a draw though.

  33. aldavis4president says: Jul 3, 2014 1:50 AM

    Vick is the fastest player I’ve ever seen. Chris Johnson is fast too. But Vick Dsnt even look like he’s trying. I want to see this race!!

  34. rando74 says: Jul 3, 2014 3:00 AM

    I CHOOSE NOT TO RUN!

  35. abreathofsanity says: Jul 3, 2014 3:54 AM

    I love love love the thumbnail picture.

  36. ialwayswantedtobeabanker says: Jul 3, 2014 5:07 AM

    Chris Johnson also said he could torch Usain Bolt in a foot race (which is preposterous), and also promised he was going to rush for 2,500 yards one season (which was impossible to take serious).

    Chris Johnson should just let his play do the talking — his talk is not particularly credible.

  37. uglydingo says: Jul 3, 2014 5:35 AM

    While Jets fans are still trying to overcome the disappointment of not resigning Mark Sanchez, Rex is organizing footraces among backup veterans.
    The Buttfumble has moved down the road to Philadelphia but the mental scars inflicted on the fans remain and will never be erased.

  38. uglydingo says: Jul 3, 2014 5:38 AM

    Did Mike Vick and Mark Sanchez swap homes in their team swaps?

  39. dobberdubinsky says: Jul 3, 2014 5:45 AM

    Adrian Peterson can wipe the floor with CJ, Vick or any other goon in the league. Period.

  40. dobberdubinsky says: Jul 3, 2014 6:01 AM

    let johnson go race another cheetah, maybe this time it’ll eat him and we won’t have to listen to this garbage anymore

  41. patriotsarespygaters says: Jul 3, 2014 6:25 AM

    jets circus continues

  42. voiceofreasonsays says: Jul 3, 2014 6:49 AM

    Meanwhile every other RB and QB are actually trying to become better all around.

  43. bullcharger says: Jul 3, 2014 7:25 AM

    CJ and Vick are bothe getting slower, so it doesn’t matter who wins.

  44. watermelon1 says: Jul 3, 2014 7:38 AM

    C2 (you’ve got to be) K… idding me!

    Michael Vick would dust you.

    How is Chris Johnson even still in the league?

  45. shawnc16 says: Jul 3, 2014 7:42 AM

    I wonder how much Rex would love to see a foot race.

  46. joetoronto says: Jul 3, 2014 9:03 AM

    If you measured their IQ’s and put them together, they’d equal zero.

  47. doe22us says: Jul 3, 2014 1:40 PM

    I am sure Bud Adams is giving Chris the two fingered salute right about now for stealing from him.. RIP…

  48. realpantherfan says: Jul 3, 2014 4:07 PM
