    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trick_play

    There are other types of trick plays that are seen less often in professional games, but are more common at the high school and collegiate level. One such example is where the quarterback will pretend that he can’t hear the coach and start walking towards the sideline, the ball is then snapped to the running back as in a direct play (see above). This play takes advantage of the fact that you can have one player (In this case the quarterback) moving sideways or backward at the snap. The Indianapolis Colts, New Orleans Saints, Pittsburgh Steelers, and St. Louis Rams have used a version of this trick play in the NFL.This play was also used in the movie The Longest Yard.


    An infamous trick play occurred in 1994, when Dan Marino’s Dolphins were playing the Jets. From the account of Pat Kirwan, former Jets defensive coach and executive,[1]
    “ With little time left, Marino had driven the Dolphins near our goal line and lined up as if he were going to spike the ball to stop the clock. But instead, he faked the spike, and as our defense let up for a split second, Marino threw the winning touchdown.

    That was insane.
    Hard to believe that all happened in three minutes.
    Almost makes me feel better about the Gophers bowl loss last year.
    Almost.

    I looked at another video attached to that one:

    http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1729751

    It's a three-play highlight reel, and the third play is impressive.

    Holy pooh.
    Are you F-ing kidding me?
    All three of those plays were pretty impressive, but that last one was nuts.

    What about that Boise State Oklahoma bowl game last year.
    The hook n ladder was done to perfection and the Statue of Liberty for the two point conversion to win it was an all time classic.
    Two well executed trick plays.
