Ever since Google Glass, Google’s uber-expensive computer spectacles that make people look like awkward-looking human robots, was unleashed on a few fortunate select individuals, we’ve seen our share of POV videos during sporting events that have given us unique perspectives we rarely have had access to in the past.

But never has it been used during actual live NFL activity. That is until Monday at Raiders training camp when Chris Kluwe wore a pair of Google Glass (Google Glasses?) and recorded some footage.

OK, yeah, he’s a punter. It’s not Denarius Moore running a deep post or Charles Woodson picking off a pass and taking it to the house or Darren McFadden running between the tackles and then spraining an ankle. But, even still, this is some fascinating footage you won’t get to find very often, until maybe the NFL invents Helmet Cam, or Apple, to compete with Google Glass, invents iBrain, a microchip that gets implanted in our brain stems (definitely get Apple Care protection with that).

Here’s Sebastian Janikowski taking some kicks with Glass on and then being told he looks like a Bond villain (uh, OK):

And returning a punt against a team of invisible people:

Rod Streater could emerge as Matt Flynn’s go-to receiver

Jerry McDonald of InsidetheBayArea.com believes wide receiver Rod Streater could end up becoming Matt Flynn’s go-to receiver this season.

If Flynn is going to have any success this season, he’s going to...

Column: Terrelle Pryor is not that bright

Week Two: Terrelle Pryor is not that bright When you do something stupid as a college kid. You sorta have an out, or a  do over or something.

McFadden looks forward to return to old system

Oakland switched schemes after Jackson...

Raiders starting job is Matt Flynn’s to lose

    We’ve already reported that Raiders quarterback Matt Flynn has looked like the top quarterback so far in training camp.

Terrelle Pryor Says He ‘Never Knew How To Throw A Football’ Before

Oakland Raiders backup quarterback Terrelle Pryor picked a fine time to come out and admit a severe deficiency, just as the 2013 NFL season is getting underway.

House’s claim...

Sifting through day 3 of Raiders training camp

A few thoughts about the Raiders training camp, trying to make sense of all the information that is generated every day: -It’s no big secret that the Raiders lack a true #1 wide receiver – someone who can take over a game and who requires opponents to plan their defense around covering him – but that doesn’t mean that they won’t be able to move the ball in the passing...
