While I may or may not agree with the points raised by BB I didn't see anything he wrote that could be perceived as dissing the other posters. In fact I feel they belittled him for stating his viewpoint. Just my opinion. It?s unfortunate that frustration gets into these threads, but after saying th...

I guess I missed the last posts in this thread. I?ll respond as I?ll likely be directing to this thread in the future. Wow, a whole 40 ex-CFL players have made it to the NFL. Wrong. Please re-read what I said. There are about 40 ex-CFLers in the NFL last year . God knows how many have been there ove...

Where?d ya go Cunninglinguist? Anyway, so you have seen, I presume, that we don?t need to agree to disagree anymore. The facts are on the table and they show very clearly that CFL RBs do tend to be faster, quicker, but smaller than NFL RBs. This should be no surprise to anyone but the NFL marketing ...

Here?s a list of the 98 backs with their sizes and speeds. Note that Avery is the second fastest back and only behind a chronically injured little speedster who I don?t think ever played pro football. m I remember seeing numbers on Antonio Warren that put him in the low 4.4 range too but I can?t see...

That?s an interesting list. I think those e?s mean estimate but that list does give a good general idea of the speeds and the size to speed relationship. We touched on this earlier in the thread but I think KK is the exception in that I think his 40 times has improved quite a bit since then. I suspe...

Here?s a very interesting and much more complete and telling set of stats. It?s for the 2001 year which was I think the fastest year, at least as far as RBs go, that I?ve seen yet. Have a look at Corey Holmes? numbers. He?s the fastest to 10 yards and tied for the fastest to 20 and he had a 4.41 ove...

MMRF, I too have found it difficult to sometimes track down comparative stats. Outside of using player size stats from the two leagues (which tells you nothing other than NFL players tend to be bigger than CFL players, which solves nothing in our discussions, and serves as evidence to neither side)...

and if CFL player were capable they'd be in the arena league. I?m not even sure what point you?re trying to make here. I guess you believe that if NFL players were capable they?d be in the arena league too? That?s the only consistent conclusion from your statement. Arguably the best CFL athlete to ...

I realize that I?m probably wasting my breath as this has all been said before, but at least we?ve got you admitting that not all NFL players walk on water, so maybe there is hope for some of this to sink in. Walk on water ... never. Are they superior football players, IMHO yes. No disrespect but a...

As always MMRF I await your responses as your arguments are always well thought out and presented in a level headed way. I think perhaps we will always be at an impasse in our discussions with respect to this topic. I have one question regarding your previous points and it has to do with this area:...

It basically goes like this, the bigger NFL linebackers only appear slower because of the relative speed of everyone else on the field, much like the guy who finishes last at the olympics looks slow... compared to everyone else. But he's still a world class olympic athlete, and is still bloody fast...

I guess you didn't catch my sarcasm OVDB, I was asking MMRF that if a small shirtier back is better suited for the CFL game because the field is bigger and the defence is smaller and faster to try and stop them, based on that, a bigger powerful NFL back who does very well agaisnt a bigger NFL defen...

Oh yeah, and I see AlsWin still has that fake quote in his sig. This is the plight of the NFL worshiper. They have to stoop to falsifying information to keep their fantasy alive. If you are a football fan, otoh, look at the differences in the games and how that affects the type of player that excel...

Bigger Balls Wrote: I'm glad you put this question into perspective regarding size and skill. Not one CFL RB can compare with the talent in the NFL otherwise they'd be there ...
