Jimmy Johnson may very well be an athlete, but I never and still don't believe you have to be an athlete to drive a race car and drive it well. The one thing I do agree, is you have to be physicly fit to some degree. What QB was saying was he didn't consider race car drivers athletes compared to one on one or individual sports. QB did say drivers just drive the race car which is just ignorance on his part.

take a football player & I guarantee you he isn't conditioned enough to run a cup car for 500 miles. just because they don't have bodies for magazines doesn't discount them as athletes. & the fact McNabb was talking of tiger as an athlete yet JJ was not is just plain ignorant.


Just to help Donovan out, here is Merriam-Webster's definition of an athlete: "a person who is trained or skilled in exercises, sports, or games requiring physical strength, agility, or stamina."

In case McNabb cant comprehend, JJ uses all three!!!

Re: Former QB Says Jimmie Johnson Not An Athlete

From my experience driving a race car just a short time, it totally drains you physically and emotionally. I was only doing short laps but after 20 laps and for two days in 100 degree weather, I wanted to sleep for two days...lol Everything is sore and you ache for a week. But SOOO worth it.

Obviously QB has no clue and likes to talk out of his A$$. Typical NFL player IMO. Delana said it best!

Re: Former QB Says Jimmie Johnson Not An Athlete

All Mr. McNabb has to do is read the definition in Websters dictionary and it will define what an athlete is. athlete: a person who is trained in or good at games and exercises that requires physical skill, endurance, and strength. Granted racing is not a game but the rest sounds to me what kind of an athlete a race car driver is. I wonder if Mr McNabb ever drove a car around a race track at 180 miles an hour for 500 miles.

Re: Former QB Says Jimmie Johnson Not An Athlete

here is a definition


A person possessing the natural or acquired traits, such as strength, agility, and endurance, that are necessary for physical exercise or sports, especially those performed in competitive contexts.


sounds like JJ to me.

I have no doubt that this includes JJ and a ton of other people. I checked my husbands college dictionary which is about 10 pound heavier than my paper back I use at the computer. It says the same as I posted and quite a bit more. I read the story about JJ and his routine that was related to the McNabb story. I don't remember who gave the info but it stated that JJ has several sessions a week regarding his driving. It sounded massive to me and even tho he isn't 6'6" and his weight isn't 350 pounds he can control his car with a healthy body and his brains. It amazing to me what others do with judgement. Others judgement means nothing.

Re: Former QB Says Jimmie Johnson Not An Athlete

This is what I posted on Doc's Face Book page about race car drivers and football players: At least in a race car seat they're fighting traffic, the wheel, dodging other drivers and debris (namely hot dog wrappers and chicken bones) and they're sweaty. Sitting on the bench will do nothing but give a guy hemorrhoids.
