Who do you think is the fastest viking to have played?

04-09-2004, 12:33 AM
bennett is the fastest right now, i think... how about jim marshal? he was pretty fast scoring that touchdown. oh wait, nevermind...

Lmfao, Randy Moss runs a 4.24 40 and you need a poll for this.

I thought Bennett was a track star at wisconsin or something? Anyone know his 40 time?
Bennett is definitly the faster driver, he can out run bullets[:D]

Acually, during a Vikes game, they showed Moss and Bennetts 40 times. It said Bennett ran a 4.19, and Moss a 4.24 i believe, but Moss had a faster 100 yard dash time. So it depends which one you want to use to judge speed, however in football the 40 is probably a better speed measurement.

I'm afraid you're wrong sir, Bennett ran a 4.36 in the 40-yard dash when drafted, and his lowest ever was a 4.29 on October 23rd of I WANT to say 2002.

That's what I thought when I saw it during the game, but they always change stuff.
(add a couple inches, few pounds, etc)

When Bennett was drafted I read an interview with him, and he said he could beat Randy in a 40 (he was serious). Musta had a bad day at the combine or something, hahah. And he also was a track star.

Moss can flat out fly . . . run a 4.2 40 . . . go from 60 to 0 in 4 seconds flat (with a traffic cop as a hood ornament too!) Now that's fast!

bennett is the fastest on the team.

its all fun. man... I knew that Randy ran a 4.2 something but as others have pointed out, is this the best criteria? would randy run a faster 100 meters? I know that both Michael Bennett and Robert Smith were track stars in college too.

When Bennett frist started to practice again this past year after recovering from his injury. Tice had him run the 40 to see how much time he had lost will recovering. He ran a 4.2, which was the first time he had done any running since his injury. Just think how fast he is when he is consistently working out.

Bennett is probably faster at the 40, he most likely has better acceleration. Moss however has a much longer stride, and once he reaches top speed (which is still really fast), no one catches him.

All I know is Bennett has 98 speed with 99 acceleration in madden 2004, wheras Moss has 99 speed with 99 acceleration I believe.

I think Moss is faster

04-09-2004, 04:58 PM
Forgive my dubious nature, but I would like to see a source of Bennett running anywhere below a 4.29.

The only reason Marshell ran that fast was he had to go to the restroom.

If it came down to it I would put money on Bennett on the 40 yard dash, however anything beyond that distance, I might have my doubts. Moss has a different body type(longer/taller) and may have a better stride over all for longer distances.
But whatever, this is probably way too technical....They're both bloody fast>

04-10-2004, 11:16 AM
I'm still not seeing sources for Bennett's 40 yard dash time...

04-10-2004, 11:46 AM
Bennett 4.29 Moss 4.39 Smith 4.4 Three lightning fast fellows, and who is the hell is Marshell?

04-10-2004, 12:00 PM
jim marshal was the defensive lineman who ran the wrong way for a touchdown. perhaps you've seen his name in the vikings ring of fame? it was meant as a joke...

Bennett is probably the fastest in the league.i bet he and moss are in the top 3 or 4
