bopkiss on that endurance sh#t. you've probably never even seen an NFL game. most euros have not. i don't blame them for their ignorance. most americans have played soccer. it is the most popular sport in the country for kids under 13.
somebody in the secondary, or a wide receiver, will run many miles each game. same with any basketball player, seven footers included.
