Scotty Miller said that his money is on him if he and KC Chiefs speedy wideout Tyreek Hill were to race each other.
The Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are squaring off in the Super Bowl and with that, we’ll see two lightning-quick receivers on both sides of the field. For the Chiefs, it’s none other than Tyreek Hill, who has been one of the (if not the) fastest players in the league since he was drafted in 2016.
On the other side of the field, there’s Scotty Miller, who is only in year two of his career, but played well for the Buccaneers. He finished the season with 33 receptions for 501 yards and three touchdowns and had a big touchdown in the NFC Championship Game against the Packers.
Miller appeared on The Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday morning and when asked how he’d fare against Tyreek Hill in a race, Miller said “Oh I’m taking me every day of the week. I’ll take me over anybody.” When pressed by Dan, Miller stuck by his claims that he thinks he’s the fastest guy in the league.
Scotty Miller thinks he’s faster than Tyreek Hill.
KC Chiefs fans have been watching Hill for half a decade now and know how blazing fast this guy is. Miller is quick too and is relatively new in the league, so for him to believe he could beat Hill in a race shows the swagger this kid has and that’s certainly fun to have in the NFL.
Hill and Miller won’t see each other on the field, as they both play on offense, but this is a fun little story. It’d be cool if these two could arrange an official race to see, once and for all, who is the fastest receiver between the two. Is it Bowling Green product Scotty Miller or is it five-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro Tyreek Hill?
Hill heard the news and responded to Miller’s claim on Twitter with a simple Hell of a player good for him” and a blushing emoji. Miller should know better than to make this kind of claim considering his very defense allowed 200+ yards to Hill in the FIRST QUARTER of the game in which they played each other. Hill even backflipped into the end zone at one point.
For now, we don’t know the answer to that, but hopefully, we can get the answer to it prior to Super Bowl LV.
What do you think, Chiefs Kingdom? If you had to put a week’s pay on it, are you going all-in on Hill or would you give Miller a chance?
