22.6 & Counting

June 2nd, 2017

Computer clocked

Perhaps wide receiver DeSean Jackson is so darn fast that he really is showing up for OTA practices at One Buc Palace but nobody can see him?

Nah, Jackson is just taking a sanctioned spring siesta, taking full advantage of the “voluntary” nature of the practices that he ironically says are very important.

Regardless, Jackson is still crazy fast at 30 years old.

In fact, the NFL has its expensive computer chips in players’ gear during the regular season. And per this Bucs video at NFL.com, Jackson clocked the league’s third-fastest recorded miles per hour while running during a game last year.

He hit 22.6 miles per hour; the video shows the route.

Watching that got Joe thinking of the great greyhound Flying Stanley. It should be one hell of a year if Jackson can stay healthy.

    How in the h#ll can you brag on his unlimited speed in a video that shows him getting caught FROM BEHIND??? What was the second fastest play, that DB tracking him and dragging him down before getting to the end zone?

    The fastest greyhound running I ever saw was L.B.’s Dallas Girl, that was back a ways. That dog won almost every race at Derby Lane. I gained entry at 17 when 21 was the required age.

    About 20 years ago, I worked at the Tampa Greyhound Track as one of the young kids that took the dogs out to the starting gate and retrieved them after the race. Great dogs, good times.
