The phrase “I want to go fast” sounds in the 2006 film Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. The hero rushes to the first place, not thinking about the limits of the permissible. The film star and running back of the Dolphins Matt Breida have something in common. Breida, in his turn, says that he is the fastest in the NFL.
A Big Talker
Breida told reporters on Wednesday that he acquired a Lamborghini for the same purpose, which helped Bobby transform from a maintenance staff member to a superstar. “I like to drive fast. I like to run fast,” explained Matt.
On the football field, Breida is impetuous and does not need unnecessary modesty. Once he was asked about the fastest player in the NFL. He said that the answer is clear hinting at himself. Breida cited statistical figures to support this, adding: “No one can defeat me.”
It’s about the 2019 season, in one of the matches of which, Breida developed a speed of 22.33 mph. Then the running back scored an 83-yard touchdown, setting a season record.
Not the Fastest?
It is curious that among his former fellows on the San Francisco 49ers, there are also quite a few fast guys. Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman, and Deebo Samuel last season reached a speed of 21+ mph. By the way, no other race of Breida stood next to his achievement. Breida says that he is the fastest in the NFL. However, in 2016, he was only in eighth place among the fastest.
The record-holder is still Tyreek Hill (the Chiefs), who achieved about 23.22 mph on a 105-yard kickback four years ago. It’s time to remember Bobby’s quote from the above movie: “If you are not the first, you are the last.”
