    Thought you boys would like this...

    Watch it until the end...the last one is our very own Laurence Maroney jumping through the windows of an SUV...

    He didn't hesitate at the door or anything!

    Wish he could do that for the Pats on the field! LOL!

    Seriously, this is some pretty cool stuff...I think the Bulger one is fake, but the rest look real...

    Enjoy!

    Yeah, not only is this about a year old, but there's not a chance in hell it's real.

    Perhaps the incredible impact of that stunt was responsible for Laurence "Mr. Glass" Maroney's should injury this past season.

    yea I saw that a while ago very late at night and was initially shocked that LoMo could jump through an SUV. Then after a few playbacks I realized it was fake.

    The Chambers catches are the most amazing in that video. Sadly, though, all of those are fake as others have mentioned.

    You wish LoMo could jump through SUV windows on the field?? I don't think that's allowed.

    JK :D

    Are the posters who are saying that these are fake saying this because you know how it was done or are you saying it because you think it's impossible?
    Because I don't think these feats are impossible in the least.
    The one I have the hardest time believing is the first segment when Cris Cooley puts his hand through wallboard to catch a pass.

    I have a hard time accepting the fact that Maroney was allowed to jump through a truck for a commercial. How can that be real?

    I also don't think that Jason Campbell trick is a thousand-to-one shot.

    I'm sure they had safety precautions.

    The one thing that bothers me about this, is the camera doesn't follow the ball through the whole segment.

    BTW, if these are fake as some suggest, wouldn't FF players have a class action suite?:D

    Both.

    Google it... it won't take long to confirm that they're very much fake.

    It was done with video editing software, the same way a lot of commercials are. There's a reason the ball flies off screen in most of them. We're not talking rocket science or astrophysics here people. Actors in movies don't die when their characters seem to, either.

    With Colston, its pretty clear someone lightly tosses him the ball from behind his back, and then the one he snatches from the side just appears in his hand if you go frame-by-frame. The Chambers ones are thrown but the actual balls are edited out and replaced with balls in his hands. Maroney doesn't even pop up at the right spot for where he should've landed.

    They're clever commercials but they're all very fake, but I don't think they were ever supposed to be interpreted as real anyways.

    'NFL best players' and 'Laurence Maroney' should not be in the same sentence ... at least at this time

    The Chris Chambers segment you can track the whole uninterrupted projectory of the ball.

    Actually, Colstons last catch looked like he just brought his hand down with the ball already there.

    Of course they were supposed to be interpreted as real.
    What about Tiger Woods' trick? How many people thought that was fake.
    Great athletes are capable of amazing things but they don't usually make money doing them.
    I have heard that, for all their fancy tricks and dribbling, the Globetrotters could not beat a real NBA team.

    In any case, I have tried googling for clarification on these videos but had no luck.
    Does anyone have a link?

    Do you realize how impossible (like truly impossible...the chambers thing is absolutely impossible, as is the cooley) some of these are?

    Up until he actually catches it. Do a frame by frame, and I bet the balls are placed in his hands and the thrown balls are deleted from the scene. The Colston one isn't even edited well.

    Tiger Woods is a bad example. Do you really truly believe he can walk on water too?

    Yes, just the fact that Chambers actually catches the ball should make people suspicious.

    No, you misunderstood or maybe I wasn't clear...I meant I wished he wouldn't hesitate on the field for the Pats...
