I have a horse that can kick the ball 65 yards. He goes by Gus. Well be waiting for our tryout. Right now he's focused on his training and improving his 40 time at PLEX.

There is good news for you my friend!
Quote:
Apparently, anyone can participate — if he or she (or Gus the donkey) is willing to pay $275. Sure, the NFL claims that “[a]pplicants must meet NFL eligibility rules and be able to perform at a high skill level” and that “[t]he NFL reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to reject any applicant it determines to be unqualified or unfit to compete.” But those are just words on paper.
http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...blicity-stunt/

(And just for the record, both CT2 and PFT are technically incorrect - Gus is a mule.)

The only way that Mo Isom could make it on an NFL sideline is if she is willing to put on some hot pants and shake some pom-poms.

I like the rainbow arch on it. It gives the kicking team lots of time to get under the ball.

Default Re: First Woman Kicker in the NFL?

Even "if" she had a strong leg and even "if" she could kick the ball in the endzone, she would still never make it on a team. If she gets hit hard on a kick return, she could be seriously injured or even killed.

I think the whole thing was a publicity stunt and here we are talking about it.

Ouch. Tough, but good, article.

What got me was this little nugget:

Quote:
Those women worked and they dedicated themselves. Injured or not, Silberman obviously hasn't yet. To her fellow competitors' credit, they didn't titter behind their hands and they didn't ostracize her. One helped her figure out how to use a kicking tee, another how many steps she needed to take to line up for a kickoff.
WTF?? She didn't even know how to use a freakin' kicking tee or the basic mechanics for a kick off???! Why is this even a story??? She's not even serious enough about it to practice. Seriously pathetic waste of time.

No, actually that's the worst kind of onside kick you can make. If the ball doesn't touch the ground, the other team can call a fair catch, which is why you always see onside kicks bounce of the ground immediately after the kicker makes contact. So she couldn't even get that right either...

Mo at least would've put on a good showing. decent form, obviously has practiced up a bit, and could've been inspirational for girls who are trying to compete with the boys. the other chick was just embarrassing and may have wiped out other attempts to follow in her mangled footsteps.
