  2. Dirty Laundry: What is 'abrupt movement?'

    Kevin Seifert

    From the start, the Green Bay Packers' decision to line up for a 58-yard field goal attempt last Sunday at Ford Field didn't make sense. Place-kicker Mason Crosby had already missed from 50 yards (twice) and 38 yards, and another miss would have give...

  7. Blair Walsh: 'A strange two weeks'

    Kevin Seifert

    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Local dailies have touted it as a slump. Yours truly felt compelled to note Sunday that the Minnesota Vikings have no concerns about place-kicker Blair Walsh, who has converted only one of his past six field goals over two game...

  8. Havard Rugland isn't just 'Kickalicious'

    Kevin Seifert

    Of all the good things we saw Friday night from the Detroit Lions' revamped special teams, Havard Rugland's performance was probably the least relevant. It's nice that he converted two long field goals in the second half of a 26-17 victory over the N...
