I'd punt one into her endzone.
 
2013-03-02 03:22:53 AM  
Not bad.  She's no Kathy Shower, but she's attractive.

Dear god, she's like every nerd's wet dream.
 
2013-03-02 07:35:09 AM  
I'd touch her back.
I'd down her inside the 20.
I'd have sexual intercourse with her.
I'd split her uprights.
I'd name her to my practice squad.
I'd put it on her endzone
 
2013-03-02 07:44:42 AM  
I'd give up a safety.
I'd throw it out of bounds.
I'd miss wide right.
I'd fumble at the goal line.
 
2013-03-02 07:51:06 AM  
I'd NFL reference her vagina euphemism.
 
2013-03-02 08:04:36 AM  
The NFL needs more good kickers. If she can play, I say sign her to a team, and let her earn a spot in camp.
 
2013-03-02 08:13:24 AM  
I'd call for a fair catch with her

/isn't even sure what that could mean
//just that it sounds a little bit dirty
 
2013-03-02 08:13:28 AM  
I hope she doesn't end up on the Steelers
 
2013-03-02 08:14:02 AM  
I would penis her with my penis.
 
2013-03-02 08:27:12 AM  
As a former offensive lineman I'd just hold her.
 
2013-03-02 08:37:15 AM  
I would respect her decisions as an autonomous human being and not objectify her with my mind.

Oh wait, totally the wrong site for that kind of talk. My b. Carry on.
 
2013-03-02 08:59:37 AM  
Great! My 7yo daughter was bummed when she got interested in pro football last year and found out there were no women playing.

machoprogrammer: I hope she doesn't end up on the Steelers


Kickers and quarterbacks rarely have much to do with each other. She'll be safe.
 
2013-03-02 09:02:56 AM  
I'm going way, way out on a limb here and predicting that she doesn't make any team.
 
2013-03-02 09:06:35 AM  
What is her range? That is the only thing that will determine if she makes a team.
 
2013-03-02 09:18:25 AM  

Alphax: Not bad.  She's no Kathy Shower, but she's attractive.


Maybe if we film her getting oiled up by a few women she'll be much hotter.

Incredibly NSFW

Heh, I meant to say Kathy Ireland.. Necessary Roughness.  Oops.

Seen that movie, but thanks for the link to the best part.
 
2013-03-02 09:24:32 AM  
Is Gary Barnett at the combine to tell her she's terrible?
 
2013-03-02 09:37:56 AM  
Will she shower with the boys?

you would let your 7yo play professional football?
Dont you think she might be a little short? or tiny??
 
2013-03-02 09:59:56 AM  
The NFL is all about winning.  I can't see her on kickoffs, unless she can kick the football out of the endzone, because she may have to tackle someone.  But if she can kick field goals, I think she could land a job.
 
2013-03-02 10:01:01 AM  
I'd snap it between her legs
I would run it up the middle
I'd down it in her end zone
I'd throw it over the middle

Yeah, with how frequently the kicker is the last person standing between tackling the runner and a touchdown, there's now way she does kickoffs or punts.

this.

More power to her.  But unless she's way better (Jacques Stroppe-like), I think the NFL has gone beyond the "Hey look, a female kicker" stunt for anyone to give her a shot.

This is why I don't think she has a chance. Like you said she would probably only be used for field goal and extra point situations, and nowhere in the article does it ever mention what her field goal range is, or what her field goal percentage is. These are very important things to consider when you are talking about kickers. It would be like having an article hyping a running back without ever mentioning his 40 time or how many yards he ran for the previous season. I think who ever wrote this article knows what her range is and what her maximum long is, and knows it isn't up to NFL standards, so they didn't mention it. If they did it would have killed any sense of drama built up by the story.
 
2013-03-02 10:50:32 AM  
She can't be any worse than Billy Cundiff, and teams keep hiring him.
 
2013-03-02 11:00:32 AM

Not to mention she could get blocked into next week.

They mentioned in the article that she has zero previous experience, at least in college football. She's a former soccer player.

Yeah but you think they would mention whether she can even kick a farking FG or not. I mean if she can hit 75 yarders, she probably has a good shot. If she's kicking 30 yard FGs with regularity, then this is a worthless article. NFL teams need a kicker who can hit about 50% of their 50 yard plus FGA. They can't afford to have two kickers, one for long FGAs and one for extra points and short FGAs unless one of them is pulling double duty as the punter.
 
2013-03-02 03:07:01 PM  
Good for her.  She's knocking down the barriers that are keeping men from playing on a professional womens soccer team.

And she is kind of attractive.

/ in an east coast sort of way...

There is no drama. A 28 year old woman with no football experience has no chance. And don't give me this "But she played soccer" stuff, there are thousands of men who played soccer too and would have a better chance at succeeding.

sex barrier, not gender barrier. the use of gender in place of sex because people don't want to say sex gets my panties in a bunch.
