    Dave-

    Are you visualizing an English football satire with Rowan Atkinson?

    And they haven't received a forward pass yet, meaning it was flipped to them via a lateral/backwards pass.

    I'm not recalling a specific example of the kicker throwing. Punters do it quite often. I'd say it's more common at the college level. Les Miles likes to run a fake field goal where the holder flips the ball over his shoulder to the kicker who tries to run around the edge. Mike Dantonio at Michigan State also runs that play. I'm sure there's a variation in the playbook that calls for the kicker to throw to an end.
    The Broncos tried this once five or six years ago (maybe longer, it all runs together in my head) and either Prater or Elam (I think it might have been Elam days) pulled a hamstring running it.

    I agree with the 2nd 1/2 of your title.

    It's stupid.

    This is how any fake should be done:

    Dave, don't treat me this way! I'm not the one making ridiculous threads in the middle of the night.

    I remember Kubiak, as holder, using a shuttle pass to an upback once. My favorite one was an LSU game a few years ago where the kicker ran to the backside of the holder and caught an over-the-shoulder flip for a touchdown. Here it is....

    Hey Dave, the consolation in this is smart people ask stupid questions sometimes. So, just because the question is such it doesn't mean your not a smart guy!

    It looks like once again I am the only adult in the room.

    Dave, in 2004 Adam Vinatieri threw a TD pass to Troy Brown on a fake FG. I was there and took a picture of it. Here it is:
