Not bad there Nostradamus T-Greg, ... bringing up Tom Dempsey.

You should have played the lottery this weekend
i saw a replay of the dempsey kick last night on the nfl network

it should have been scored as a 62 yard kick

it was between 62 and 63 and by rules its called the lesser number

the kick on sunday by the chiefs guy could have been another 5 yards longer

he really launched that ball

Morten Anderson used to kick them in games at least 70 yards. Of course, you are only given credit for where the ball was placed. I believe he has a 62 yarder to his credit.

In the real old days, drop kicking was the fad. The quarterback dropped back and drop kicked the ball. Jim Thorpe, possibly the finest athlete that ever performed, was reputed to have drop kicked a ball 70 yards through the uprights. No records were kept, so who knows. This was during his tenure at Carlisle college. As kids we would practice drop kicking and it was hard.

Russell Erxleben was the New Orleans Saints 1979 No. 1 draft pick out of the University of Texas. He has (or had) the NCAA record with a 67 yarder in 1977. He was drafted to be both placekicker and punter. He often missed wide in the kicking game and he could punt the ball and hit the top of the Superdome (he did this in pregame warmups), but most of his punts were very high but way too short during the game. There used to be a running joke that he tried to commit suicide, but the bullet went wide to the right. He was convicted of securites fraud in 1999 and was released from Federal prison in 2005. Just one of many Saints No. 1 picks that turned out to be a bust.

I shouldn't even be talking about this here but when I was young back in 56, my father got tickets for the Bears-Giant game at the old Polo grounds. Tickets were real hard to come by. Anyway the Giants led 14-7 with only seconds remaining and Blanda throws a "hail Mary" pass towards the end zone. The Bears were led by a split end by the name of Harlan Hill, like a 145th round draft pick out of Florence state teachers college of Alabama, Turned into one of the greatest ends. Anyway, Hill goes horiental in the endzone, reaching out with just his left hand and I still don't know but clutches the ball and with the point after has the game end in a tie. The fans stand stunned and then give a standing ovation to the greatest catch I ever saw. Wish I had a tape of that game.

That nose and grin look strikingly familiar, where have I seen it before?
