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. Rod Streater has been the most consistent player and could emerge as the go-to receiver for Flynn and Co. because they’re relatively certain he’ll come down with the ball. 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. In Terrelle Pryor’s case, he went from being a stud preparing for the NFL to a dud begging for mercy in the supplemental draft. Why? Because he did something stupid. Common sense would like us all to think that after you do something...

Quarterback Terrelle Pryor told Raiders.com that he worked out with a throwing mechanics coach during the offseason that also worked with Tom Brady and Drew Brees.

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. The San Francisco Chronicle considers the Raiders starting job Flynn’s to lose right now, despite the fact that Terrelle Pryor has looked good so far in camp. Pryor may have the better arm and be more athletic, but the starting quarterback’s job is Matt...

McFadden looks forward to return to old system

Darren McFadden hopes that going downhill will be just the tonic to revive his career with the Oakland Raiders. Back in a familiar offense that suits his running style perfectly, McFadden is looking to bounce back from a disastrous 2012 campaign and return to the big-play back he was for the two years Hue Jackson ran the Raiders' offense. Oakland switched schemes after Jackson...

Cleaning Up the Game: Cracking Down on HGH

  The NFL seems to have a growing issue (no pun intended) involving players throughout the league. This problem is the use of HGH (Human Growth Hormones). Commissioner Roger Goodell and other officials have been working non-stop to get a testing agreement settled with the NFLPA. After the lockout back in 2011 was settled, this topic was supposed to be among the top issues that needed...

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. Pryor is as athletic, and gifted a player you’ll ever meet, but was never the strongest passer.  Pryor did his best to fix that deficiency, by hiring Tom House to be his quarterback coach this off-season. 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...

Radiers sign LB Omar Gaither

49ers reportedly 'shopping' LaMichael James

The San Francisco 49ers are reportedly “shopping” running back LaMichael James, per Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee. The report doesn’t exactly come as a shock, as James has received just 44 offensive touches since entering the league as a second round pick (No. 61 overall) out of Oregon in the 2012 NFL Draft. But looking back, it’s pretty stunning that within two years...
