    In my opinion Cornerback is harder than Safety. You gotta be with that receiver the whole time one man coverage when he knows the route and you don't.

    This video misses so much more about catching than it says in the video , they have to deal with foul balls to the legs , bats hitting them on the head when the bat comes around the hitters shoulder , framing pitches , blocking pitches in the dirt and catching pitches that have dirty movement , I'm not a catcher and Ik that this is all true because my brother catches and after every single game he has at least another 4-5 bruises and around every 4 games he'll sprain his thumb , they don't give catchers the credit they deserve

  • Hotshot1945
    Hotshot1945 3 days ago

    As a WR (Wide Receive​r), the hardest position would be in football since you have to know your plans, your oponnents, sudden on the field changes and you get hit, not to mention landing wrong you can break multiple different bones in your legs or arms, not to mention getting hit. It may look like it doesn't hurt but it really does. I almost broke my knees 3 times because a safety or course smashed me in midair. WR is the #1 hardest position in sports
