Hello, 2008, is that you? Chris Johnson talked to the media after practice yesterday, and he said, stop me if you have hear this before, that he thinks he would have a chance to beat Usain Bolt in the 100 meters. Here is what he said via Jim Wyatt:

"I feel like if I would have kept training for track I’d have a chance, but I play football and he runs track, so it’s totally different," Johnson said. "I think I could still probably beat him in the 40. If I actually trained for the distance he trained for, I think I’d have a chance."

I think it is hilarious that people like PFT and ATL are acting like this is brand new information. He said the same stuff 4 years ago when Bolt was crushing world records.

At this point, there is no way CJ would have a chance to run with Bolt, but I do agree with his assessment that if he had done nothing but train for the 100 meters since high school that he would have a chance.

Johnson told the 3HL guys yesterday that he ran a 10.3 in high school. That isn't far off Bolt's record, and that was without the proper training CJ would get while training for the Olympics. So you're telling me there's a chance.
