    Re: Amazing! Johnny Football stars in amazing trick shot video

    thought I'd mention that Joe Nameth was in a B rate movie years ago. I'm thinking Joe was probably in his early 50's at the time. In the final scene of the movie the bad guy is trying to run away and Joe Nameth is supposed to throw a long pass with a football and hit him in the head knocking him out. The pass was about 45 to 50 yards. The movie notes said they had booked several hours for the scene expecting it take that long to make the shot. Nameth hit him in the head on the first and only shot. Cut, Wrap, Outta here.

    Re: Amazing! Johnny Football stars in amazing trick shot video

    that was a great video

    I was at Alabama back when Brodie was there...and the January he enrolled early (2001) I watched him throw 50+ yard passes into garbage cans in the indoor practice facility. He was ringing them like they were free throws. This was before he ever took the field in an Alabama jersey...and he looked like a 13 year old kid. But man could he sling a football.

    These were actual drills though...working on putting enough touch on a long ball so that it drops over a defender and right in front of the receiver. Still fun to watch
    I remember my first game as a child and the amazing feeling I got when I first walked into Bryant-Denny. I still get that same feeling every single game.

    One of my favorite QB drills in high school was the "Dummy Cans" drill. You had three sets of five balls on the 40 yard line going in - one in the middle of the field and one at each hash - and five garbage can targets, each "guarded" by a tall tackle dummy standing about 5 yards in front of each can. You had one on each sideline at the 30 yard line, simulating throwing a 10-yard out over a DB. You had one on each sideline at the 15 yard line, simulating a 25-yard fade route. Finally, you had one in the middle of the field on the goal line guarded by two tackle dummies, simulating throwing a 40-yard deep post over two safeties. You started at the right hash mark, throwing one ball at each can, and then did the same thing at the middle of the field and the left hash mark locations. You got one point for hitting the can, two points for getting the ball in the can, and minus one point if you hit the tackle dummy, regardless of whether or not the ball hit or went into the can. It was a tough drill but fun.

    The most points I ever got - while the drill was being run by a coach - was 24. I got 11 in the can (including two out of three on the 40-yard post), three that hit the can, and one that hit the dummy. The one that hit the dummy still went in the can, so I was lobbying hard for 27 points and a "clean sheet" but didn't get it.

    My other favorite QB drill was the "Dummy Window" drill. Same setup to start with but the targets were different. You had five targets down the middle of the field, simulating a quick slant to each side, a 15-yard square-in to each side, and a 25-30 yard crossing route down the middle. The targets were one red tackle dummy flanked by two blue tackle dummies about 2-3 yards in front of the red one. It was a similar scoring system, with one point for a ball between the two blue dummies without hitting them, two points for hitting the red dummy without hitting a blue one, and minus one point for either hitting a blue dummy or missing to the left or right outside the blue dummies.

    I actually managed to score 30 points on that one, though just once. That was the only time I broke 25.

    Ironically, one of the best guys on our team at both of those drills was our fullback. He couldn't throw a rope more than 20-25 yards but he could lob the ball with pretty amazing accuracy. We actually had a couple of trick plays where he would start to run the ball to the outside on a sweep and then pass; we used it a lot, for a trick play, on 2nd and short - maybe a dozen times - our senior year. He had three touchdown passes that year - all over 50 yards, catch and run - because the safety(ies) and corner(s) crashed, never thinking he might pass the ball. He should have had four but Corey inexplicably dropped one in the end-zone that hit him right in the hands - and he was wide open. It was like Jalston Fowler taking a sweep and then pulling up and throwing a perfect 35 yard post!

What's he going to do this winter?
    he caught us with the element of suprise the last game; he wont have that 'element' this upcoming september. With a bye the week before we meet, he better be preparing right now.

    I think that is why a lot of people enjoy watching him play.
    On a side note, the Dude Perfect guys were on TexAgs radio this morning and said the "extra long shot" at the end was Johnny's idea - that they thought it was a waste of time since they didn't think it could be done. They said it took less than 10 tries and, from their description, it sounded more like the third try. Interview is on TexAgs.com.

    Re: Amazing! Johnny Football stars in amazing trick shot video

    Dude Perfect guys said it was the shortest outing they ever had. From time of meeting at noon, discussing what they would do, setting up, having lunch....the entire shoot of all the stunts took seven hours. As stated above, it was JFF's idea for the long shot which they thought would take way too long. The original idea was just to hit some guys on routes...but then he said set up the goal post and hit it on less than ten attempts. I can understand why he was playing poker...any way you cut it, less than ten shots for that trick includes a lot of luck (but then so did that fumbled touchdown throw.)

    Amazing! Johnny Football stars in amazing trick shot video

    Those Dude Perfect guys have done a bunch of cool videos like that over the last several years. The one they did with Brodie Smith and the frisbee is one of my favorites. I knew they were from A&M, so I figured it was only a matter of time before they made one with JM.

    Let's be honest, it'd be a lot easier to watch had we beat him.
