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:

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...

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.

Oakland switched schemes after Jackson...

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...
