Chris Johnson says he could beat Mike Vick in a 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.
