  • Ronaldinho

    I have friends who say he could play in the NFL. I think they're dumb. I tell them that if he gets crushed once then he's done. Do you think he is or isn't NFL material?

    he never will.. makes WAY more money playing soccer... alot of soccer players are very good athletes.. so i think they could hold their own if they focused their workouts towards football...

        Play what in the NFL? Besides being wicked fast, what translatable skills does he have to make the transfer?

          WTF? Where the hell did this come from? This has become one of the dumbest threads in the history of these boards.

          And no I don't think he can play in the NFL. He has a hard enough time dealing with physical play as it is in soccer.

                Hypothetically, I think he might make a good slot WR or CB, hypothetically not practically. Some aspects of his game might translate well to American football (like his speed and amazing footwork) but I doubt Ronaldihno can hit someone very well.

                  We can easily establish that what really makes Ronaldinho so amazing is that he is a wizard with his feet. The moment he enters the NFL his best attribute is immediately useless.

                    vision and awareness are also very key to his sucess which will translate well to any sport...

                        His upper body strength would be a huge negative in the NFL.

                          I know. I was watching a video and he had good footwork and that's how he got by defenders. He didn't outrun them. It was pure moves.

                            Except in soccer he just needs to keep the ball away from a defender, while in football a player would just a soon run him over as anything else.

                            Speaking from experience, the two sports are completely different to play, and require totally different kinds of awareness. He's a nice athlete, but he would get killed in the NFL.
