The backflip is one of my favorite celebrations. If done right, it can be an incredibly display of athleticism and skill. If done wrong, it's never not funny, and usually results in an awkward looking fall or face-plant.
Marion Barber's attempt at a backflip on Sunday was of the latter variety. Sure, he almost got it all the way around. But almost doesn't count when doing backflips, and usually results in a spectacular face-plant.
As I was saying: always funny. He's probably lucky he didn't break his neck, but still ... don't attempt it if you're not absolutely sure you can get it around. Otherwise you'll end up on a blooper reel forever.
