MSN is reporting today that the Eagles ran a totally fake walk through running all plays they weren't doing on the day before Super Bowl. I'm glad to see that the league (although probably not the Steelers) are figuring out how to negate the cheaters.

The comment by the long snapper on this story is true. A walk-through doesn’t really do much except get you familiar with the field on which you’ll be playing.

Especially for the Super Bowl, when you’ve already had a few extra practices.

If you don’t know what you’re doing by the night before game day, you’re fucked anyway.

I was going to ask "why waste your time doing a fake walk thru"?

I also think the days of NE stealing info from a walk thru, especially in a domed stadium, are over. But one can imagine, if you did get to see a real walk thru, that in key situations you might be tipped by the formation and personnel of something you saw at the walk thru.

NE won 3 SB's by 3 points, 1 by 4 points, and another in OT....a handful of illicit micro-advantages could have been the difference in all of those. Not to mention getting there in the first place.

Someone on our staff would have left our play sheet on the field somewhere.

They expect teams to have walk-throughs, so that's why you would go to the bother.

When is the part where he falls down a flight of stairs?
