My dad's gonna lose by a fraction of a point because Crosby forgot how to kick.

I remember being done in once by Robbie Gould. Focker kicked 5 field goals. Wtf does that.

Best thing about Crosby was watching him go to the sidelines and change his shoe. His shoe. Like that's what causes him to forget how to kick
Its still not a hummingbird.

Funny you mention Gould -- he saved my season with that 20pt game last year.

 

He's gonna cost me a game this week, with his -1pt.

 

Kickers.  Even worse when they miss PATs

Yep often. Just the other week lost by half a point when Sturgis misses an extra point. Weeks before that lost by 7 and Bailey had 0. Im shocked when I dont lose a game by freak 1 in a thousand odds nonsense.

We went with another flex. The kicker thing is just too random.

The only time I recall a kicker killing anyone is that time Dan Mario screwed up the hold. Laces out Dan!!!

Also, for the first time ever I splurged on a kicker and took Tucker two rounds before the last round, worth it!

I've been on the other side where Martin Grammatica did something stupid like 6 or 7 FGs on MNF with a few of those being 50 yarders... I think he ended up with 30 or so points that day... I effin loathe kickers

In a championship game a couple years ago, I lost by 4 points.  My kicker had 9 points... his had 26.  His kicker was his highest scoring player that week.

twice this year already in a league where we must have 2 kickers (yes, really stupid I know)

 

Bailey week 3: 0 (Succop on bench)

 

Lambo week 5: 2 (Bailey on bench)

 

Next season in the league I run we are eliminating kickers in favor of a second Flex spot

On the other side of that coin, may I present you with

 

The Legend of Rob Bironas

 

I played AGAINST the team that had Bironas that day.  While I can't remember the exact score I was playing a league that gave distance bonuses for kicks.  +1 for 40+ yds, +2 for 50+ yds.  I seem to recall getting my bell rung by 32 pts from a kicker that week.

Kicker and Defense tend to be overlooked.  They can be the deciding factor in most games every week.


To get the perfect a@@, you need to do the perfect squat.

It's okay, go ahead and take a closer look at that a@@ of mine in my profile.

I had a game a few years ago where I was up, 39 points I believe, big going into the Monday night game with only his kicker to go. Kris Brown if I remember correctly.

So I wrote it off and and didn't even check the score during the game.

I looked at my team Tuesday and saw I had lost. I looked and he had kicked 5 FGs including 3 over 50 yards. FGs over 50 yards earned a huge bonus.

Brown had scored him 42 points and the close win. I was furious! I wanted to call up the commissioner and say it was ridiculous for a kicker to get that many, but I calmed after a minute.

Never again have I overlooked Kickers.

There was a game several years ago...I think it was bears and Vikings. I had a very small lead. Can't remember which kicker it was but last play of the game was a field goal to win it. Game ends then, I win, very makeable kick. Course he misses and the game goes to overtime...A. Peterson rips off a ten yard run first play of overtime giving my opppnent the win. I remember when that dude missed the fg it felt like a kick in the gut... Knew right away that I was toast... May have even been a fantasy playoff game, I think.

Pretty sure that was Robbie Gould as unfortunately I was in the same boat. I think he was perfect on the season prior to this game.

I thought this was going to be a Gano thread!

 

A number of years ago, I was done in by a KCR.  He had 4+ FGs, with most of them > 40 yards, which earned extra points.

 

I'm in a "trash talk / for fun" league, and we've tried over the years to do away with KCRs, but the defaults won't let you..  We've been on Fox, and with ESPN for '17 & '18.

When any of you watched Ace Ventura for the first time, did you research Ray Finkle to see if he was an actual person?
