NFL players have no aerobic ability and don't have to perform under any level of fatigue what so ever.
NFL players experience fatigue, just differently. They aren't moving constantly, but they have to exert large amounts of energy in quick bursts, similar to sprinters. In addition, they are constantly hitting people and being hit. It takes a lot of energy to do those things, and it's exhausting.
No nfl is closer to golf than basketball as an aerobic sport. It takes next to no cardio vascular ability compared to nearly every other sport in the world.
Obvious you have never played football before.
Trying running fast as you can and getting tackled by or tackling a 230 pound man that is running a 4.5 for 10 secs over and over again. Trying blocking or pass rushing during a two minute drill. Try covering wr's running down the field for 50 yds twice in a row as fast as you can.
You can loaf on a basketball court during a play, not in football. NFL skill players are in great shape! Even those guys in the trenches. You try wrestling a guy 60 times a game and see how much endurance it takes!
