NFL Worst Trick Play Fails of All Time

  • Published: 20 May 2017
  • I didn't use as many older clips as I would've liked, but the truth is, since teams have tried to get more fancy with their trick plays, their fails have gotten way worse.

    here's why the colts play isnt as bad as the washington play-- in the colts play it was a failure in execution. the ball was never meant to be snapped it was to get the pats to jump off side and if it didn't work let the clock run out. the washington play some knucklehead actually thought would work. hope this explains it if ur reading this. still a bad play call tho don't get me wrong but had more logic behind it than the washington one and makes more sense if u know that the ball wasn't supposed to be snapped.

      That Redskins play is so much worse than the Colts play.

            @roxxylala26 yes it's a bad trick play but its not as bad as the washington one because in that one they thought it would work where it clearly wouldn't. the colts play actually might've worked had it been executed, but the washington one would never work even with perfect execution. *lol*

            @Sidhartha Penalver But that's exactly why it's the worst trick ever. Stop trying to split hairs. Lol

            no, not really. ball wasn't meant to be snapped play was designed to get the defense to jump offsides. failure in execution

          Is the eagles onside kick against the cowboys the fastest touchdown scored ever

          Some of these were designed well, just piss poor execution.

          That Colts play though...OMG

          These idiot commentators cheaply make ridiculous statements because many of them have never held a football much less tried to do something and it just not work! These plays may look horrible but if they worked as planned they would have been highlight reels!

            The Quarterback Bradford took down a defensive back like he was a middle linebacker! Bad shuttle pass but great tackle!

                  1:28 dumb play, but the Bears only mustered a measly field goal after that. Green Bay still won 21-13.

                      On that first play, if dude would have thrown the ball further it' would have been a touchdown .

                        Lions fake field goal against Steelers was a bad call. But whoever approved of those Steelers jerseys made an even worse call

                                Colts v Pats: According to Pat McPhee, Griff Whalen was never supposed to take the snap, it should have been a delay of game then come back for a re-punt. It was designed to confuse the opponent to have too many men on the field, or use the hard-count to draw them off-side, but it just didn't work. Chris Collinworth guessed half of it, and just make him sounding like Madden is worth it! 4:40 LoL

                                  They could have tried that trick play against any team. It probably does make half of the teams in the league either jump or call timeout. Instead, he tried to spook the Patriots, the best-coached team in the league, who a few months earlier hadn't even called a time out in the last minute of the Superbowl, on the 1 yard line against the Seahawks. Pagano thought maybe he could outsmart Belichick. Nice plan.

                                  I'd like to see a clip of that "everyone to the side of the field except the center and QB" play actually work - doesn't make sense.

                                      Watch tue Video from Pat mcafee about that Play. It Shows that the Ball was only to be snapped if the Pats have to many man on the Field. Right before the Play pagano told the "qb" to do a hardcount which was not in the playbook. So when the "qb" started screaming hut hut hut the center snapped because the playbook told him so and Chuck didnt tell hin about the hardcount

                                                        The whole point of the flea flicker is to make the defense jump to defend the run and leave a receiver open as a result. If they don't bite on it and the receiver is in double coverage, it's generally not a good idea to just throw it anyway.
