Are we going to continue to dick around with our kicker?

Come on already....we haven't had a kicker with a decent leg since Brad Daluiso.

 

Joe, don't know if you knew this but I was there in training camp in 2002 trying to try out for the kicker position.. it was only after my friends insisted I go.. since I was booting 59 and 60 yarders regularly... sadly I was never able to meet the spc teams coach.. and after being in 90+ degree heat all day.. and having woke up at 4 to drive from NYC all the way to Albany.. i was pretty tired by 4 pm and gave up..

 

Oddly enough I was kickin the ball around where the fans were sittin and a few fans approached me askin me to try out.. 2 children even asked for my autogragh... Amani Toomer spent a little over 10 minutes talking to me and encouraging me to try out... oh well.. that was as close to trying out as i got.

You showed up unannouced and expected to get a try out?

I didnt even know any modern day team had open try outs, outside of the Eagles that one year.

 

I thought you had to be invited i.e. in the NFLPA to even be brought into a NFL camp.

Yea... I didn't know who to call and where to go. I figured I'll just go there and see what happens. It's not like the Giants have an 800 you can just dial.

Maybe that explains why kickers are hard to find...

That's a cool story; too bad they didn't give you a look.
