Default The Speed Debate: Mike Wallace fastest?

Found an old article/video from a couple years ago. Thought it was interesting that in all actuality, Ike Taylor may be the fastest player we have:

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt.../s_635267.html

Now I understand this was 2009, but it's an interesting read and listen nonetheless. This is one of the most well known and respected trainers there is, and he's trained several great players, some of them considered the greatest and fastest of all time. That same guy says Taylor is the fastest player he's ever trained.

Taylor said in the interview that he fancied Mike Wallace. This was Mike's rookie season.

Well like you said, an old video. I'm not buying it not that he is faster than Wallace, and I doubt I would believe it than, as there were several artciles out about Wallaces speed if I recall.

Thomas didn't think Ike was that fast either. I believe there are some NEw videos of that laying around, lol

I dont think Taylor is the fastest now either but I did hear many people buzzing around including this trainer saying it back in the day... I do agree IKE may have been the fastest player the league has ever seen at in his early through mid 20s

so ike is STILL supposed to run a 4.24 after repeatedly spriniting for 3 hours?

nobody has ever had or ever will have that type of endurance. if anybody goes by that "new footage" they are to believe ryan mundy is faster than wallace.

wallace has very good straight line speed, but i think antonio brown is more dangerous in the open field tbh. sometimes quick is better than fast, big plays more often result from defenders missing rather than getting run past.

3 hours? I know it felt like he was chasing a WR that is much slower than him for 3 hours. But wasn't the WR sprinting for 3 hours too? If Ike was covering him for 3, than Thomas was running for 3 as well. Right?

Its like teams complaining, ohhh geez it was the rain that caused us to lose. Right, because the other team didnt have to play in the rain right, lol

Darrell Green was. He was so fast he played until he was 42.
