Video of Bad NFL Lip Reading Is an All-Time Classic
When NFL players get mic’d up for a game, the results can be pretty entertaining provided they’re not watered down too much by some stuffy producer. For example, after the Seattle Seahawks defeated the Washington Redskins in their NFC Wild Card playoff game a couple weeks back, Redskins lineman Trent Williams walked up to Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman after the game, threatened him, and then slapped him in the face. And it was all caught on tape, because Sherman was mic’d up at the time.
It’s little incidents like these that make you wish players were always mic’d up so we could hear every last word spoken on the field. Unfortunately, that’s never going to happen.
However, let me tell you, there is actually something even better than hearing what players actually say on the field. And that is hearing how somebody else fills in the blanks.
Don’t believe it? Just watch this compilation video by BadLipReading.com. They took some footage of various NFL players talking and filled in the words.
The result? Absolutely awesome. Check it out:
My favorite part is when Matt Schaub is telling his teammates about his pregnant cat.
