Ed McCaffrey Jokes About Wife Lisa Letting Him Win 40-Yard Dash

Former NFL star Ed McCaffrey humorously suggested that his wife, Lisa McCaffrey, a former Stanford soccer star, might have let him win a 40-yard dash over two decades ago. The conversation started when the Washington Commanders highlighted Lisa's impressive athletic achievement in a tribute, Mothers, Day, response post on Sunday, revealing that she ran a 4.5-second 40-yard dash while pregnant with one of their sons.

Ed McCaffrey responded to the tribute post, saying, "Oh yea, well she can't be all that fast cause I caught her...although I'm starting to think she let me." The NFL legend was drafted by the New York Giants in 1991 and earned three Super Bowl rings throughout his 13-season career.

The McCaffrey family has a strong athletic background, with two of their sons, Christian and Luke, set to play in the upcoming NFL season. Christian, the second-oldest brother, helped lead the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl earlier this year. Their son Luke, who was drafted by the Washington Commanders last month, credited his competitive spirit to both his parents.

Luke said, "When someone asks us, 'Where'd you get your athleticism from?' It's immediate, all of us will answer 'our mom.'" He added, "You inherit some of those qualities that you watch every day. It's the fierce competitiveness, the pride that a person takes in their daily work and making everything they do their best."

Lisa reflected on the special moment when Luke was selected by the Commanders with the Number 100 pick in last month's NFL draft, saying, "He had this a million-watt smile... Those couple seconds are ingrained in my head. It makes me cry. I will never forget the look on his face."

The McCaffrey family's athletic prowess continues to shine, with Lisa's impressive 4.5-second 40-yard dash while pregnant serving as a testament to her exceptional abilities. As Ed jokingly questions whether she let him win their race years ago, it's clear that the competitive spirit runs deep within the family, inspiring their sons to excel on the football field.
