TMC you better work that connection!

That would be a mega chat if we can get that going. You might gain instant Warpath Hall of Fame status if you can set that up.

Work it kid, work it!

I will work it then. I'll ask his sister (which is good because she's one of my users that I support) to set up a time that he and I can get together. I wasn't familiar with him until this draft class, and apparently he's some up-and-comer draft-wise.

He's NFL Networks version of Mel Kiper. Minus the helmet hair.

Re: Neil Rackers....K Cardinals

Bad ass. I didn't know all that. When I talked to her, she was all non-chalant about it. Like it was one of those things where I jokingly said, "Yeah, I was reading some football today and this guy had the last name of Mayock. You wouldn't happen to be related would you?" And it was those one-in-a-million shots that she was like, "Yeah, he's my brother."

Craziness.

Re: Neil Rackers....K Cardinals

That was a pretty amazing display by Rackers...it reminded me of an old school McDonalds commercial starring NBA Greats Larry Bird(my all-time favorite player) and Micheal Jordan playing H*O*R*S*E and bouncing balls off the rafters and the score board...all net everytime. Great stuff. Now I need to see that commercial again...LOL.

Hard to believe the Racker's thing was real...but it was...amazing.

He and Shayne Graham did an exhibition of how to kick during the Pro Bowl skills competition. Kicking into a stiff wind, both guys were nailing incredible shots.

Well you remember they did one for football right? They had Chip Lohmiller and Pete Stoyanivich kicking fieldgoals with their helmets on backwards and junk. Not as well remembered (obviously) as the Jordan-Bird spot, but was funny to see they considered Lohmiller and Stoyanivich as the top-tier kickers then.

This clip of of Ronaldinho is pretty amazing. Four times off the crossbar on purpose and right back to him.

Re: Neil Rackers....K Cardinals

And our kicker for this year will be the guy who the Cardinals release. None other then back up kicker Nick Novak. Why do they need both of these guys? Bring back the Terp.

Then you're obviously not a Terps fan. He basically won the Terps the ACC championship in 2001 with his clutch kicking against GT. He'll be good once he gets a shot.

I'm just not really a college football fan in general.

Re: Neil Rackers....K Cardinals

I remember when Novak started...he missed 7 of his first 11 before hitting before sending the Terps into OT with a 46 yarder against Ga Tech on a Thursday night. Changed his career.

However, I see him being an average kicker at best in the NFL.

Re: Neil Rackers....K Cardinals

If you think Neil Rackers is an amazing kicker you should see his Asian cousin Li Bo Sang Rackers just being Li Bo Sang...
