Saw this on Buffalo Rumblings. It's pretty cool, as are the other photos in the gallery:

Yeah, that was my feeling too!

Why would you put exactly what you do, muscle movement by muscle movement, for everyone to see? You just gave away the secret of your game; down to your thought process while you do it.

He gave away nothing.

A) it's only one of many moves
B) every bit of it is on tape 100 times that DBs do actually watch
C) "I move one way to make him think I'm going that way" couldn't be less of a secret

Would have liked to see the same photo sequence on Brady's slide kick.

Exactly.

This is what I like about Stevie's game the most. He's definitely not the fastest WR in the game, but he's one of the best in getting separation from a defender.

Yup - what's special in this isn't any given muscle movement in this move, it's how the various moves play off each other, how he reads the defender and how he sequences them play to play. That's all him in the moment. Every defender has seen his "step inside and release out" on film. This move isn't a secret, so he didnt give anything away.

Film already shows what he does. All recievers do something like this

he is one of very few receivers I have seen that can beat the defender in the first three yards off the ball. amazing instincts.

he does that straight leg move all the time. so does spiller. its no secret, ive even heard the announcers comment on it. its really their god given talent that makes those moves work much more than any secret technique

There is no secret. Anyone who's ever played basketball knows exactly what he's talking about. It's one of my favorite things about the way he runs. (I've played basketball for about 25 years, its my favorite sport)

I don't think there's anyone left in the league who doesn't know exactly what Stevie is going to do.  The DBs have several years of film to watch on him, frame by frame.

Knowing what he's gonna do is one thing.

Stopping it is another

Indeed, it's no big deal at all, I just like flying under the radar until theyre in the spotlight for being on the big stage.

Given the depth and specificity of modern game film, is there any space under the radar anymore?

WTF is "film"?
