Him or Mike Wallace. Next year it would be him because Wallace will no longer be a Steeler. Shout out to Ike too.

I'm pretty confident Rainey's faster than Wallace, but Ike's faster than both of them :chuckle:

And....Jeff Demps is the fastest football player (now Olympics) on the face of the earth:

Naw playa, don't know if Rainey is faster than Wallace, but think that both are faster than Ike. Ike was the fastest NFL player a few years ago but age catches up to us at some point. Don't get me wrong, Ike is still fast but not as fast as these two youngsters.

I'd love to see them race.

Wallace will be here, he is not going anywheres for at least 2 years, maybe 3. Unless they sign him longer term.

More Ike compliments, lol.. Maybe Rainey can cover a big 6-4 wr who runs slower than our current all world speed CB?

I would love to see 2 speed guys on the line with Brown in the slot. That will stretch the defense something fierce.

Yep, there would have to be safety help at either or both edges, which would open up the middle for the run or underneath stuff. Rainey was a damn good pickup and I bet the Steelers use this set at some point this coming season.

We are sittrin pretty good with our new offense and it's weapons.

If Ike is so fast why didn't he catch that Denver receiver that ended our season? Terrible attempt at a tackle and no effort run him down. Ike sucks

I could have sworn there was a nice stiff arm on Thomas's part as well on that particular play. Let's not forget he has 4.3 speed himself, and that stiff arm pushed Ike back a good 3-4 yards. Ike blew the coverage, and then was stiff armed out of the play; it's not like Thomas beat him in a straight-up foot race. Also, stop saying Ike sucks. We lost that game because our defensive scheme was designed to 100% disrespect Tebow and completely DARE him to beat us with his arm - and he did. Ike blew the coverage on the biggest play of the game in the end, and I'm not excusing that, but that's not a reason to neglect all the great things he's done for us (in that game, last season, and his entire career). Ike is a true Steeler and a VERY underrated player in this league. How many times this year was Ike's side completely shut down? Take a look - you'll find that Ike isn't Revis, but he can hang with a good majority of the big time receivers and shut down very good ones.

He doesn't look that fast in his highlight videos. Wasn't he clocked at 4.45 in the 40?

I wonder about Rainey possibly becoming a wide receiver in the future. Can he catch good enough?

Chris Rainey is “electric” at new position for Florida Gators

Chris Rainey's move to wide receiver has gone swimmingly.

How’s this for a Percy Harvin comparison? Florida Gators running back Emmanuel Moody said wide receiver Chris Rainey is even more versatile at the Percy Position than Harvin was.

“He might have a little more YAC (yards after contact) than Percy,” said Moody, who called Rainey electric. “Rainey is going to have a big year this year.”

The Percy Position, the dynamic slot receiver role nearly perfected by Harvin from 2006-08, was the glaring omission from the Gators’ offense last season. To remedy the problem, the coaching staff decided to move running back Rainey to the position, a big adjustment for a kid who had played in the backfield his entire life.
Life in the slot is going extremely well for Rainey.

“He’s making plays left and right,” Moody said. “He’s taking them to the house sometimes. Making people miss, making people look foolish, breaking ankles.”

The position requires elite speed and the ability to create yards after the catch, as well as the versatility to take carries and feel comfortable at a variety of spots on the field.

The team gave Rainey a tryout, you could say, at the Percy Position last year in the Sugar Bowl against Cincinnati. With just a week’s preparation, Rainey caught four passes for 71 yards and ran four times for 27 yards in the Gators’ blowout win.

Can you imagine what he can do with a full offseason of training at the position?

The biggest concerns are his hands, which have never particularly been Rainey’s strong point. But according to everything from players and coaches, he’s having no problems.

“He’s handling it really well,” Gators offensive coordinator Steve Addazio said. “He’s a natural.”

Tomlin wants team’s rookies to be flexible

TALKING THE TALK

It is debatable as to whether Chris Rainey is the fastest player on the roster, but he sure ranks close to the top of the being the most quotable Steeler.

Rainey on how a Penn State defender caught him from behind in the 2011 Outback Bowl: “I was feeling lazy after halftime, that’s why.”

Rainey on whom he compares himself to in the NFL: “Nobody but Chris Rainey. I like (Darren) Sproles, but I still like myself.”

Rainey on how he thought he did the first two days of rookie camp: “I think I did great. I just have to keep it up. I have mad comfort in myself and got a lot of talent.”
