Tyreek Hill on Usain Bolt: “He’s old, he’s washed up, and he can’t see me in 40 yards”

It’s the race that we’d all love to see, but that will never happen. Usain Bolt vs. Tyreek Hill.

A day after Bolt boasted to Pat McAfee that Hill would have no chance, Hill fired back.

“Usain Bolt got out of the game for a reason, right?” Hill told reporters on Friday. “He’s old, he’s washed up, and he can’t see me in 40 yards. Hundred-yard dash, yes, that’s what he do. But 40-yard dash, according to this, Usain Bolts, you cannot see me.”

Bolt begs to differ, pointing to the time he showed up at the NFL Scouting Combine and ran a 4.22-second 40. It happened at the NFL Experience in Indy, and in fairness to facts it didn’t look like a 4.22. (Watch for yourself.) Still, Bolt is as fast as any human has ever been, and even on the brink of 35 he presumably can still move like few can.

It would be fun to watch, but the safest bet between Hill and Bolt is this specific outcome: It will never happen.

  1. Ugghh…as a Chiefs fan..Tyreek needs to shut his mouth and focus on football. This man would embarass you in 100 yards and hes twice your age. please just shut up

  2. This would be fun to watch. Love to see it as a charity fundraiser. Might be fun to add some of the rookies who showed blazing speed at the combine.

  3. The world would be a better place if people stopped placing microphones in front of Tyreek Hill.

  4. It would be worth it to see Hill blow out every ligament in his legs trying.

  5. I agree with Florio – no way was that a 4.22. Totally lame, I agree in advance, but I used a stopwatch on three different videos of Bolt’s run and in all three cases it showed MUCH closer to 5 seconds. Nothing against Usain Bolt, but c’mon.

  6. Bolt is a well named track legend. Tyreek should show some class and respect. But we all know that isn’t Tyreek’s style.

  7. I don’t get the hate for Tyreek Hill. The man was very clearly and obviously maligned by a crazy ex and her whole family who were abusive to his kid. HE did not abuse his ex. The prosecutor, NFL, and the Chiefs in particular would not have moved on IF there had been ANY evidence suggesting that he did anything wrong.

    Makes you wonder why so many commenters are always so down on these players on this website. Weird or American style coincidence or stereotyping.

    Problem is there are so many who don’t care about the truth and so many in the media who stirred the pot for clicks before the truth came out and didn’t issue any corrections afterward.

  9. No Tyreek, he cannot see you in a race because he will be in front of you the whole time.

  10. Didn’t Tyreek almost lose to a retired, older, Terrell Owens a couple years ago? He’d get destroyed by the fastest man to ever live.

  11. Even I have to say this would be the second time Tyreek gets the peace sign thrown in his face

  12. Bolt’s legendary speed and burst is during the back end of the 100m. I could imagine that braggart Tyreek would indeed be ahead at the beginning (which means @40 yards) but Bolt would, even at an advance age, totally embarrass him over the course of 100m.
