A New Kind Of Fathead

The folks at NFLN, perhaps recognizing that the lengthy draft process benefits from some periodic comic relief, have been using from time to time a camera distortion trick that creates the impression that a guy’s head is incredibly large.
(They do it at ESPN when Trent Dilfer or Mel Kiper are on the screen, but without any technical gimmickery.)
So since we had the Sprint phone handy, and now that we’ve figured out how to send the pictures for use on the official PFT Macbook, we’ll post a few of them.


 “Bring me the broomstick of the Witch of the West.”


 “Heh, heh-heh.  He said, ‘Loose in the hips.'”


 “I will kill Vernon Davis with my second mouth.”


 “I will trade this pick for one billion dollars.”

    instead of posting these awful pics, you should be doing a live blog with all the time on your hands Florio

    It may be stupid, but for some reason that was some of the funniest sh-t I have seen during any type of football coverage.

    these pics are not even remotely amusing.

    And that’s the reason I stopped watching draft coverage.

    I’ll tell you what ISN’T funny to me. Those goddamn reminders that NFLN keeps posting on my screen that Comcast will no longer offer NFLN after May 1st.
    Kiss my ass, NFLN and Comcast. You both suck.

    If one more of these fatheads says in regards to the Jets “A year ago they had Brett Favre as quarterback” I am gonna bust their fat heads. A year ago, Baby Brett was still retired. A year ago, the Jets had Chad Pennington– remember him, went to the Dolphins almost took the division — as quarterback.

    a friend gave me a TV that did exactly that…. stretch the top half of screen… it was funny – but you couldn’t watch more than 10 minutes of anything… funny.

    This segment was the one part of the entire 2 day draft that my wife enjoyed.

    I thought the first one was Barry Bonds for a second.

    I was flipping between ESPN and NFLN and although I like ESPN’s setup better, the NFLN was more fun. They didn’t take themselves so seriously (looking at you, Keyshawn and Steve Young) and had fun. You could tell at the end of each day they were burnt out and just goofing around and being funny.
