Bo Jackson Thinks He’d Average 350-400 Yards Per Game Today

Total101 Former NFL and MLB All-Star Bo Jackson may be a timeless legend of sports, but he went full old man on Deion Sanders’ 21st & Prime podcast when discussing how he would fare today. Who wants to see Bo Jackson stiff-arm the fuck out of Deion Sanders and score a touchdown? That looks like More

  1. Since you brought up generational differences, here we go. Your didactic Millenial viewpoint, while overbearing, is interesting. But your continual and unconscious recency bias is rearing its ugly head again. If you put Bo into today’s training, nutrition and “supplement” improvements, Bo’s performance would be even greater than it was in the 80’s. Looking at Derrick Henry, he is a freight train that takes time to get going. Bo was a freight train with much greater acceleration. Bo wins. FYI, I’m a Gen Y’er.

      • Sorry Gary, Anton takes this point. Humans haven’t evolved, the training and recovery protocols have. Advantage: Bo.

        But, players don’t tackle anymore because they do not want to get penalized. So, we do not really know how great/not great defenses are versus Bo’s time, because they are not allowed to be great. Advantage: Gary. I think. Or Derrick Henry? Who knows, it is a tenuous point at best.

        Gen X schooling all you youngsters.

  2. Ever thought about the fact that Bo Jackson playing today would “also” be training with the same improved approaches that made all these current linebackers and DEs you referenced bigger, faster, and stronger? Bo was and is the single greatest athlete to ever play football. Now take that and add today’s training. He’d destroy the league. Now Bo would be 250, running a 4.2.
    This argument that today’s players are bigger, faster, stronger now than old players cracks me up. That argument goes two ways. The old era players were great WITHOUT all the advanced weight training, speed training, nutrition, recovery, medical aid and MONEY that today’s players enjoy. How about if today’s players had to play back then with the old ways of doing things? They probably would quit after spring practices. Today’s players are born in far more advanced and privileged circumstances.
