    We know that CJ has the fastest laser recorded 40 time. But is CJ the fastest runningback (runninbacks only!) ever??



    I say that he is. A lot of runningbacks of the past were bigger or more physical, but not as fast. There are some current RB's who are blazers as well but that seems like mostly a new phenomenon.


    Opinions??

    That is a tough one...I may have to agree that he is, maybe not the quickest or most agile though...Only because he has pull-away speed that is just frightening, and for being a relatively smaller back, he has been pretty durable and physical over the years. He gets the respect from D's, because if he gets a hole, things can get ugly and fast.

    Impossible to answer IMO. That's a pretty hefty designation. Especially if you're considering every player who ever played the RB position in the NFL, not just the good-to-great ones. I'd say the chances are pretty decent of there having been some scrub buried on a roster somewhere who could've beat CJ in a foot race. If you're talking about only relevant RBs, then the pool becomes significantly smaller. Still, all we can really do is speculate. But like you said, he has the fastest official 40 time so it's kind of tough to argue against him.

    One thing is for sure, he would never race the Bus in his prime.

    He is probably the fastest ever at turning his fan base against him.
    I think even faster than ricky williams.

    Lol, no one can compare with ole Ricky Willy, guy up and quit in his prime so he could smoke more weed. CJ might talk a lot of trash but he ain't leaving us 'high' and dry

    Bo Jackson was possibly faster.

    And... the answer is no.

    Because Jamaal Charles is a runningback.

    Okay. I'll bite. Name even one piece of actual evidence of Charles being faster. I can name one for C.J. (Hint: It's on his chain)
