Sorry, I didn't mean to start a another thread debating kickers, I just thought the commercial was cool. ;-)

FYI, there was some recent banter on Rackers and other kickers here: http://www.fantasyfootballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=231507&start=0

Do you suppose it could have been camera trickery/editing? I mean they have these commercials where guys drive motorcycles off of cliffs and stand right up and walk away, and it looks real as heck. My guess is doing that to a football would be a piece of cake.

I heard an interview with him on NFL radio, and he made it sound like he could really do it. I didn't get the impression that they used any kind of trickery - just exceptional amounts of kickery :-D

yeh, that was cool. did you see the follow up one with ronaldo, i think, where he says: "you're supposed to put it in the goal, jerk" or something like that. it was pretty funny.

rackers may be talented, but he will be getting more PATs and much less FGs with Edge to pound it in at the goal line.\

im liking vanderjagt and vinateri a lot this year, and i like josh brown as a semi-sleeper as well.

I'm drafting Wilkins alot this year. I dunno, I just get a warm fuzzy feeling whenever I pick him up in the last round.

vanderjagt will outscore them all. most accurate kicker in league history, and he's on an offense good enough to get him plenty of opportunities, but it's not as good as teh Colts to where all he's getting is XP's. Vanderjagt should be #1.

I think everyone kinda missed the point. A cool ad, not as good as the one where LeBron James is making baskets from everywhere during a supposed camera check in warm-ups. Nice camera work or computer generated crap. They're getting so good at this stuff that I think Dwight Clark actually missed "The Catch".

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

I saw the interview that onnestabe refers to over the weekend on NFL Network. Rackers answered questions about the video shoot and there were no obvious signs that anything funny had occurred. If so, he has a really good poker face. I'm 99% sure that it was legit.
