NFL Plays of the Week: Tebow’s Spin, Simpson’s Flop, and Nick Novak’s Kneeling Tinkle

It was another exciting week of NFL football. We’ll have plenty of actual analysis to come this week, but let’s take a few minutes and laugh some, shall we?

Here are the NFL Plays of the Week, as decided by me and with a hat tip to r/NFL, my favorite Sunday night destination; one GIF, two videos, and a special bonus image. After I present them all, you can vote on your favorite.

Let’s start with, who else, TEBOW!

Tim Tebow’s Spectacular Solo Spin

Tebow. Tebow, tebow, tebow. TEBOW tebow tebow tebowtebowtebow. Wobet. Tebow, tebow. Te. Bow.

In case you couldn’t translate by Tebownics above, here is what I said: “Below, you will see an animated GIF of Tim Tebow spinning to get away from…from…well, know one really knows.”

And now let’s move on to the Battle for Ohio.

Jerome Simpson’s Exaggerated Flop

The person who uploaded this to YouTube really summed it up best:

This season (2011) there has been a rise of fake flops and injuries just like soccer! Here is another example of a football player faking a foul and succeeding because the refs aren’t paying attention. This guy needs to be ridiculed out of the NFL!

Well, he may go a little bit overboard saying that Jerome Simpson should be ridiculed out of the NFL. Hard to say that about a player on the same field with the Cleveland Browns. Talk about being ridiculed out of the NFL…

Anyway, here is the best attempt at chicanery by a guy named Simpson since…yeah, you know.


And now, let’s talk about urination!

Nick Novak’s Kneeling Tinkle

In case you were wondering how NFL players relieve themselves during games, Nick Novak showed everyone on Sunday. Kudos to the CBS cameraman for keeping the camera angle on him, and kudos to the producer for showing it. Let’s just be glad that under-table cam wasn’t switched on.


And finally, let’s point and laugh at a guy whose records are sure to fall this year…

Dan Marino’s Booby Gaze

The NFL’s single-season passing leader (for now) couldn’t stop staring at this CBS studio guest host today. And who could blame him? Even James Brown is getting his stare on.

  1. Tebow is 5-1 and makes those around him better. He doesn't turn the ball over and is a natural leader. What more do you want? Give him time and he will only get better.

  2. Hey! Marino is not the only 5000 yard passer.. What about Brees in 2008?

    Other than that, nice column! Hilarious.
