Raheem Mostert ran the fastest any human being has run on NFL turf in 5 years

Recommended Posts

An insane 23.1 MPH.... when we all know it probably wouldn't have taken more than 15 MPH to reach the end zone. lol

there's no one to scare the other team on defense and there's no defender (LB or S) to catch the RBs before they get to 23 MPH

 

Well, Frank Gore and Chris Hogan are pretty scary...... to us!

And the 49ers complained about the turf calling it sticky.   Doesn’t look sticky to me.

Ha!  And the official looking like he's keeping stride with Mostert.  Ah, the benefit of a still shot!

The LBers, especially the ILBs were abysmal yesterday.   Slow and un-athletic.  Ogletree runs like he has one fake leg.

When there's absolutely no defenders in your way at any point...it's kinda easy to run fast

Sure, but 23 MPH is still insane.  Usain Bolt's top recorded speed was 27.8 MPH, which is the record human speed in all of history.

Agreed totally. It just jumps out at you how slow this team is on both sides of the ball.

Many on this board were calling Mostert a JAG not too long ago. 

If he were here he'd be Trenton Cannon.

The environment, surrounding players and system around these players has a very big impact on their success.

Is it more likely that 53 players on the Jets all suck or that coaching has made all of our players look worse than they could be?

The Jets have been drafting slugs for more than a decade. One thing I loved about Douglas's first draft class is that it's loaded with athletes.

Yes they were and sadder was he was a NY Jet at one time. 

He ran through our D like it was Swiss cheese

Other teams players always have a highlight reel against the NY Jets.

He was here.  The Jets had him in 2016.  Before that he was with Gase in Miami.  After he left here he went to the Bears where Loggains was OC.

I think that Maccagnan would risk picks on athletes late in drafts or with FAs.  The Jets had most of the crazy top athletic guys that were UDFA and wandering around practice squads in at some point.  That includes Mostert, Anderson and guys like Terrell Sinkfield.  By 2017 he was burning picks on Derrick Jones and Nickerson.  Darron Lee was a top-level athlete, but sh*tty football player.  They were putting claims in on guys like Vander Laan, and ASJ.  They just seemed afraid to prioritize it at the top of the draft.  You know, where all the real damage is done.

Hey how are you? Do you think Rutgers will really play this year? It sounds like there are 3-4 Big 10 teams that are really in bad shape with this thing.

Supposedly they are planning on playing. 

My sources tell me they are practicing.

So we shall see.

These two things don't line up. It's the fastest speed in 3 or 5 years (depending on source) and both of those are faster than the fastest human speed record.. in football pads..

Sounds like next gen stats is taking some very specific slice of something here..

Sounds fishy. He just recorded the fastest speed in human history wearing football pads? 

No.  Mostert hit 23 MPH.  Bolt hit 27.8 MPH. 

I was saying 23 MPH is amazing and giving a point of reference to show why.  Your point about him being in pads makes it even crazier.

That's what made him a stellar long distance runner in the movie.  The aerobic ability to run as long and as far as he does while barely ever stopping.  

You don't spend the early part of your life as a great sprinter (I.E. an SEC kickoff rerturner) only to become a great long distance runner later on.  It doesn't work like that.  Great sprinters are big, muscular, and lack stamina.  Great long distance runners are skinny, lightweight, and have endless stamina.

I am excited to have this burner on our squad when he is 2 years past his prime and significantly slower.. both physically and mentally.

He literally ran across the entire country, several times, over the course of mere months per trip/a couple of years total.  It doesn't get more Cross Country than that.  I'm sure he'd win plenty of races if they were timing him, given that information. 

The point is he shouldn't have had the stamina to accomplish anything close to that.  You can't be a fast sprinter AND run for long distances.  Those are diametrically opposed abilities.  Athletes are capable of only one or the other.  You can't outrun a car/a bunch of college football players AND run for miles and miles without stopping.

it was a metaphor for a highly abnormal/unhealthy mental state...  "the man who couldnt stop running" whcih is why he was still running once the hype had stopped and there were no crowds/tv people following him

a movie metaphor.
