Marion Barber Backflip Fail
Former Dallas Cowboys running back Marion Barber scored his first touchdown in his first game as a member of the Chicago Bears on Sunday. Barber gave the Bears the insurance they needed in the dying minutes to hold off the Carolina Panthers, despite a Greg Olsen TD with four seconds left, by a 34-29 final. The 5'11" 218 lb back just couldn't let his late score speak for itself, he had to try and take things to the next level with a post-touchdown celebration. Nothing like a backflip to revel in the moment, eh Marion?
The only problem is that Barber got lost in mid-air and landed this backflip attempt flat on his face. This wouldn't have looked out of place amid Barber's former team's late game collapse against the Lions on Sunday.
