    No way is that for real. Inkball a target with a football? I don't think so.

    Is that possibly real?! Alright we need an ex-NFL quarterback to find out for us. Come on guys, this site has everything, I'm sure Steve McNair is lurking this site somewhere!...Too soon?

    Snopes might know if this is real. First target was hard to see break.

    FAKE - UF school of engineering lists the average speed of a footbal between 50-60 mph. A football will decelerate MUCH faster than the clay because of it's higher drag coeffecient (greater surface area). A 55mph football will never catch up to a 45mph clay from 16 yards.

    There is no way that video is legit for the reasons stated by Damifino.

    Brett Favre probably does shoot but he's THAT GUY on your squad that mounts his gun five or six times before he decides that he's gonna shoot.

    So to set this up you put the trap on straight away and put the QB behind and on directly the same line as the straight away. You find the exact spot on the horizon where the target reaches the apex of its arc and have the QB throw at that visual spot with the camera directly behind him and a few other cameras at slight angles behind him.

    Then just have a decent trapshooter break the target at the top of the arc while filming then do some rather simple edits and there ya go. (Might want to edit in the sound of something breaking, eh?) Anything else?

    There is a whole bunch of Fantasy Football "Pick Me" videos. Check it out they are entertaining and I don't thing any of them can actually be done except perhaps the last one.

    If someone can imbed this video you'll all find it entertaining.

    Thanks Devi and regards. I think, like the original video, that all these "athletic feats" are well done but still bogus.
