Skip Bayless Iron Kicker Award

LACES OUT!

I would like to present the first weekly Skip Bayless Ironman Kicker award to none other than Phil Dawson. Dawson was 5/5 on the game after he connected with kicks of 40,33, 43, 22, and the game-winning field goal from 56 yards.


In my opinion, there is nothing more exciting than watching a potentially game-winning field goal. I had the privilege of attending the Michigan State/Wisconsin game on November 1st, a game in which Michigan State won on a last second field goal by Brett Swenson. Michigan State was trailing the entire game and the comeback was fueled mainly off the foot of Brett Swenson and some clutch FG's. I have been to plenty of sporting events in my time, but i have never been involved in such an electrifying atmosphere, made possible mainly by the field goal kicking of Brett Swenson

What's more exciting, a game winning field goal, or a game winning touchdown pass ala Stanford over USC last year?
I don't like Skip Bayless, but I think you guys are s'ing a little too much kicker d right now.

You do realize that a field goal is only worth 3 points don't you? A last second FG for Stanford wouldn't have done much considering they were down 6... This argument is largely based on odds. How often do you see a team that is losing by three or less and in field goal range opt to go for the touchdown at the last second?
