    I think a lot of times kickers let things bother them and in turn make more mistakes. Gary Anderson was good for a long time. He said he thought the biggest thing was he just did not let things bother him and concentrated on the kick. He said noise was never a factor when he kicked.

    Maybe he was trying left footed and we didn't notice. Or with his eyes closed. Or with a steel shoe. You don't know Scarecrow. Don't act like you know.

    In all seriousness, when Bironas comes out to kick, I always say "Bironas chip shot" to everyone watching with me, regardless of the distance. At first it was because it was true, last year it was mostly said ironically.

    Why the F would you "take 8 months off" if you're a professional? That is :bs:

    The first FG we went for had a bad hold, maybe the 2nd 3rd and 4th FG attemps had worse holds, I only saw the first one

    Seems logical, sure hope you're wrong tho. Nothing more frustrating than
    not scoring the touchdown and then missing th sh**ty ass field goal.
