Vick won’t race his new roommate, Chris Johnson


Jets quarterback Mike Vick will share a room with running back Chris Johnson.  Vick won’t share a footrace with him.

Johnson recently boasted he could beat Vick in a head-to-head sprint, and Vick is willing to concede the point.

Chris Johnson?” Vick said, via Dom Cosentino of  “Like, honestly.  Who do you think would win in a race between me and Chris Johnson?  Like, honestly.  For real.  All jokes aside, who do you think will win?  It ain’t going to hurt my feelings if you say Chris.”

One of the reporters said Johnson would win.

“All right, then,” Vick said.  “So, yeah, I mean, Chris Johnson — I ain’t racing Chris.  Wasn’t he on TV racing a cheetah or something a couple months ago?  Yeah, no, I ain’t doing that.”

Last year, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy goaded Vick into a race by calling him “old man.”  And Vick won.

“LeSean McCoy, I’ll race him again,” Vick said.  “Not Chris Johnson.”

The good news for the Jets is that Vick apparently has seen enough from Johnson to know that Johnson would easily win.  Of course, that also could be a sign that the “old man” is finally slowing down.

    Worst. Roommate. Pairing. Ever.

    I choose not to run!

    I haven’t seen the video, but that could be up there with Iverson’s “practice”.

    That’s awesome!!! The jets have a lot of speed on that team. Far from a jets fan, but I see them as a wild card team this year.

    Could be he doesn’t want to make a horse cry.

    You have to differentiate, “track speed” is when you’re running side by side with the cheetah. “Field speed” is when the cheetah is chasing you.

    Chris Johnson may be faster…..but dog fighting…..Yeah, I still got it. All on the down low though.

    Too bad the Jets aren’t on Hard Knocks this year. That Vick-Johnson room pairing would be great reality t.v.

    So, yeah…he really, like, scared those opposing defenses last year, huh? Lol.

    That was “bad news” man, “bad news.”

    The “old man” (or “wise man”) can still bring up the fact that last year he more than doubled Chris Johnson’s rushing average. But that’s pointless to mention unless you’re going out of your way to get all competitive over it.

    Vick should race against a dog.

    I’d love to see Chris Johnson against say a 2004 Vick (I have Vick winning that), Now that would be something to watch. Then again a race today would be intriguing just to see how close (or not) it would be between the two.

    Animals should eat animal-eaters.

  14. ludacrish05 says: Jul 26, 2014 7:53 PM

    Vick shouldn’t run or he might pull a hammy

  15. iamdinguskhan says: Jul 26, 2014 7:58 PM

    It’s going to be interesting to see who gets to injured reserved faster…..

  16. Raddion says: Jul 26, 2014 8:20 PM

    Vick would have caught the cheetah and electrocuted him halfway to the finish line.

  17. eaglesnoles05 says: Jul 26, 2014 8:46 PM

    Vick is still fast as a mug, though.

  18. eaglesnoles05 says: Jul 26, 2014 8:47 PM

    And still has a laser rocket arm too.

  19. iamdinguskhan says: Jul 26, 2014 10:51 PM

    Vick is still injury prone…
    And forces throws and can’t read defenses.

  20. vicnocal says: Jul 26, 2014 11:27 PM

    Both these guys have “Get away from the cops” speed.

  21. kd75 says: Jul 27, 2014 12:16 AM

    Willie Mays Hayes beats them both barefoot.
