The 2020 NFL Draft was fully virtual this year with coaches and general managers making draft picks from the comfort of their homes. This mostly went fine, as we got an inside look into some people’s houses. Jerry Jones drafted from a yacht, Kliff Kingsbury drafted from a luxury home and Mike Vrabel drafted from … well, here.
Vrabel’s house seems fine. He’s got a nice setup in front of him with a laptop and a large monitor.
But the action going on behind Vrabel needs some explaining. There are two people behind him. One is wearing a 2007 Mike Vrabel Pro Bowl jersey which, fun fact, is the only year Vrabel made the Pro Bowl.
Another is wearing what looks like a Titans skinsuit with some team-themed shorts on top.
Unfortunately, there’s also what appears to be a man pooping on the left.
From what we can see, this was due to a reflection in the mirror of the cabinets. You can see a reflection from the TV on cabinet next to this.
At first glance, this totally looked like a person with their pants down on the toilet. Something about the graininess of the screenshot, the colors and his sitting position made this a reasonable assumption. However, if you watch the video of the moment, you can tell it’s just a person sitting down on a piece of furniture.
So, unfortunately for us, we missed out on a funny moment. Fortunately for this person, they weren’t caught off guard by pooping on live television. Vrabel confirmed this to reporters following the draft.
“It’s been a long quarantine over here,” he said of the overall setup. “We’ve got a bunch of 18 and 19 year old kids but Tyler was not going to the restroom. He was sitting on a stool not a toilet.”
Vrabel also confirmed his son Tyler was the man in the reflection, his son Carter was in the Pro Bowl uniform and a friend of his son’s was in the Freeze costume.
The setup led to many jokes on Twitter.
Let’s recap Mike Vrabel’s war room.
