  • How Good Are NFL Athletes? So Talented it Boggles the Mind

    Much was made of an ad where Tiger Woods repeatedly "bounced" a golf ball off the head of a club. I'm certain most of you have seen a college or professional athlete perform an amazing "trick" with a football, basketball, or throw a baseball with stunning accuracy. How good are NFL players? Dig the vid:

    What's your favorite feat witnessed in person?

    Every professional golfer on tour, or who has been on tour, can do that stuff bouncing the ball off the club, between the legs, behind the back. The thing Tiger did at the end though, hitting it with a full swing after bouncing it up in the air - that I had not seen before.

      I certainly hope everybody realizes those Ads are fakes, right?

          The Gatorade ad in which the ballgirl scales the wall to catch the foul ball sure did fool a lot of people, including ABC's Good Morning America who brought the girl on for an interview.

            I'd be willing to bet the Tiger ad bouncing the ball if not a fake. Its pretty easy to do most of the stuff he did.

              i've read it did require a few takes - a lot of the time the ball splayed off the clubhead at an angle

                  I was referring to the set of NFL Ads which were the genesis of this thread.

                    I'd put NFL cornerbacks/wide receivers and some running backs in any.."greatest athletes"...discussion.

                      I know we've done this before with Thorpe et al, but I'd put Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders with anyone else in history.

                        We've done it before and I always plump for NBA guys.

                          Michael Timpson (Patriots) made the pages of T&FN in the 200/110's/long jump. Mel Renfro (Cowboys) was a 13.7/25-10/9.6 guy. Darrel Green (Redskins) made the T&FN lists in the 100/200/400. When it comes to speed, quickness, agility and leaping ability, it would be hard to beat NFL skilled position players. I have no doubts they win a track meet.

                            I once saw Michael Jordan walk on water.
