So much better to know it was that dick face Carroll that basically ****ed it up with that TO.
Icing the kicker is such a dumb medieval tactic that should be abolished from coaching strategies.
If I was a Hawks fan I would be soooo ****ing mad.
Maybe it's changed but, it was also found that game deciding FG's after a TO increase in %.
I am happy for Tony Gonzalez, though...
The whole point of icing is to make the kicker more nervous/less focused. I think that because calling a timeout is so expected now, not calling a timeout might accomplish the nerve/focus goal even better. If there's a nagging doubt in the kicker's mind before the first kick that it might not count, that's a solid distraction. That shred of doubt could throw off the whole thing. There's no uncertainty after a timeout. Call one and maybe the kicker calms down and regroups, knowing there's nothing to potentially throw him off anymore.
It was an article from 08 so it is outdated however this was the human aspect I agreed with.
This might be the best weekend of playoff football of all time. Unreal!
Corey Graham yesterday and Manning today.
I really liked him as a return man. It's a shame we groom stud ST's players who can find spots on other teams to get overpaid.
1st and goal and the Texans couldn't punch that in?
