These Guys Think It's Easy To Catch A Football. This NFL Quarterback Proves Them Wrong, Fast.

"I really feel like I want to go to the hospital."

Warren Moon, a former NFL quarterback who played for the Oilers, Chiefs, Vikings, and Seahawks, has a pretty mean throw, and a spot in the Pro Football Hall of Fame to prove it.

So BuzzFeed set Moon up with a bunch of regular people (all who think it's easy to catch a football) to see if they could really handle a pass from an NFL great.

Some of the people have football backgrounds and others are major fans, but all are equally excited for the challenge. 

"I'm a huge football nut. I watch college football all day, I watch NFL football all day," one guy explains in BuzzFeed's video. "I played four years of high school football, flag football in the eighth grade... won my fantasy football league twice, and I do CrossFit."

Here we go.


In the video, each player makes some solid attempts at catching the football. Needless to say, it isn't so easy.

"If anyone out of this bunch is going to catch a pass from Warren Moon, it's going to be me."

"Before I could even finish turning my head there was a speeding bullet coming towards my face," one guy says in his post-practice recap.

But after a bit of practice, some coaching from Moon, and many many attempts, everyone starts making some awesome catches.

No big deal.

So what do they take away from this?

In their post-practice interviews, all of the players seem humbled by the unique experience. But it was worth it.

"All right, that wasn't as easy as I thought it was... I really feel like I want to go to the hospital," one player says. "Doing this made me much more appreciative of the people who are out there every Sunday sacrificing their bodies."

And what does Moon think of his new recruits?

"They did a pretty good job at it, but I'll bet you they'll be the first ones to say it's not as easy as it looks on Sunday afternoon. So I think they have maybe a little bit more respect for these guys and the job that they do when they play on television," Moon says.
