I think at 37 she might have a hard time making a team, but if there are teams looking to bolster attendence, I could see them signing her. I would love it if somebody gave her a shot.

I'm not sure the "37" is the issue on Ms. Lloyd getting a real shot at making an NFL team. Agree that it would add some PR buzz if she were given a legit shot to be an NFL kicker. I wonder if soccer goalies have the accuracy because elite goalies seem to boot the ball about 70+ yards.

I think the goalies could be amazing punters.

Elite keepers.  Ah, yes.  Strong legs, they.

I will clue you in - directionally they are equally adept.  And with either peg.

Would have been grand to have Carly say, "can I take one left-footed now?" - really leave their mouths agape.  But she is ever so humble.

(sucks she sits for some of the undeserving lot that they trot out on the pitch in international play)

At least I did not auto draft Luck.

I guess you already heard this news. I had not until a few minutes ago.

Wow.

That will shake up some expectations. The Jacoby Brissett era has begun in Indianapolis!

Aware =/= prepared.

I supposed it is better than unaware =/= prepared, which we see elsewhere.
