Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Marquise Goodwin answers “The Cheetah”.
It’s no secret that there are several NFL stars that could have made careers for themselves as sprinters. The World Champion Kansas City Chiefs have a few of them, including star wide receiver and specialist Tyreek Hill. The Philadelphia Eagles have a few of their own, namely Marquise Goodwin.
Recently, the former appeared on ESPN’s First Take with Marcus Spears and Max Kellerman, and when the hosts asked the guest about whether or not there were any other NFL stars he’d be interested in challenging to a foot race, Mr. Hill made sure that he made it very clear that, in his mind, nobody is really looking for that “smoke”, pun intended, for real.
Take a look.
"Look, man, I’m gonna tell you like this. If these people really wanted to race me, they would personally message me on Twitter, on Instagram. They wouldn’t go on Twitter and talk trash and then not @ me."
When asked who he may have been referring to in his comment, the man who calls himself “Cheetah” on Twitter made sure to mention one of the newest Eagles by name. Take a look at this one.
"Marquise Goodwin, whoever, we can do whatever… I already proved I’m better than you at wide receiver, at wideout, now I gotta prove to you that I’m faster than you too? That’s really going to hurt. When I’m faster than you and I move better than you, that’s really going to hurt. But all love to you though, next time just @ me though. I just need you to @ me."
Not to be outdone, Philly’s new speedster, who actually competed in the 2012 Summer Olympics, fired back with his own response, stating, via his Twitter account “You can’t beat me”. Oh, and he definitely made sure to mention his name this time.
Here’s that tweet if you haven’t seen it.
Now, who knows how they’d be able to pull this off or if they are indeed serious. There is a global health crisis altering the lives of both men and women all over the globe as we speak. Not only that but, with the safety protocols the league has drawn up, having two guys on different rosters meet at a neutral location for a foot race doesn’t sound like a good business practice.
It’s going to be hard to make this one happen. As a matter of fact, there’s, seemingly, no way that it would happen, but it would be interesting. The Cheetah versus “Flash” Goodwin. That’s one that’s definitely worth seeing. If only one of these guys played corner and they both played in the NFC East. That would definitely get a few fans in front of the television.
