Thanks Eric for posting this. Incredible stuff.



The NFL offseason is soooo long.

It's funny, I actually saw this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5XtDi3Kiwc) before I saw the original!

Marc Bulger? No thank you.

You know what -- I actually tend to disbelieve ALL viral emails and youtube videos, as a rule. Then this one gets me and my love for the NFL makes me irrational. Thank you Trev for setting me straight. I will never believe it again. I would take this down, but I deserve to be embarrassed.

That said, I resolutely disbelieve the sink holes in Guatemala. I don't care if they are on msnbc. But people insist it is true.

CGI I hate you so much!

The only thing more embarrassing than posting this fake video would be the tragedy of drafting any one of these guys in the first round. Or at all, in Bulger's case (amen Brett), and Jason Campbell's case.

Don't beat yourself up Jon. The reason why CGI fools us so often is because artists have figured out what the human eye is drawn to, no different than what magicians have been doing for generations. The CG was really good in this vid, but the defiance of physics is probably the big giveaway. I mean punching the drywall with your hand in a catching form? And then pulling a whole football through a fist-sized hole? Come on.
