I would think a main exception would be field goal kicking where the accuracy and distance could be matched, maybe not at the plus 60 but the accuracy and control could be matched. The one deterrent there would be kickoffs but once the nfl does away with them female kickers could join the nfl without a competitive loss.

Re: WFT's Off-Season Thread

Personally, I wouldn't want to see a female kicker get blown up by a NFL D-lineman, or a NFL (insert position here)... Nobody wants that right?

It doesn't happen often, but it does happen...

WFT's Off-Season Thread

I wrestled in highschool. One time i had to wrestle a girl. I remember thinking oh man I am going to have to take it easy on her. I quickly realized that she was not just going to roll over and gave her the respect of my full effort. I will say that I wrestled other guys that seemed weaker and less skilled. That being said I do not think a woman will ever play in the NFL. Hell most guys on Earth cannot play in the NFL because they would get killed. I dont think it is a knock on woman. We are talking about the top one percent of physical athletes in the world. Kicker - different story. I think a strong woman would be as able to take the limited hits kickers take as some of the guys.

As for coaching or roles with the team have at it. You do not have to play the game to understand it.

Problem is, we're not seeing 6' tall muscular young women trying to be kickers, they're 5' tall and petite.

The men we see as NFL kickers are still solid athletes.

Skill-wise, Becca Longo probably has/had the best shot to be the first to make it to the NFL as a kicker since we haven't seen taht Vanderbilt girl actually attempt a meaningful kick. She clearly has the leg for it...but honestly, do you see her surviving a big hit? Kickers are targeted on blocked kicks and when a returner busts a return. I don't want to see what happens.






Do you see a small female surviving any of these? None of us probably would either.

This. Times a billion.

There are men coaching who never played. No reason a woman can't be effective in this role too.



In terms of playing the game though?? Men are stronger than women. That's just a fact.

In the single year 2017, Olympic, World, and U.S. Champion Tori Bowie's 100 meters lifetime best of 10.78 was beaten 15,000 times by men and boys. 15,000 times.

So stop with this "women can kick like men". They can't.

Exactly. So many men getting their panties in a bunch over all of this is ridiculous.

Re: WFT's Off-Season Thread

No one seems to be "banging down the door" (yet), but it was brought up - the possibility of female kickers joining the NFL - so I think people are just sharing their thoughts on the possibility.

Lois Einhorn could do it.

I get that this position may not qualify for those rules, but just saying. It is anti-white-male racism, plain and simple.


Can we keep politics out of this thread ? I'm having a hard not laughing and sobbing at the same time.

Idk, personally I've always looked forward to the day when I see a woman playing WR. Finally we'd get to see a proper twerk celebration.

Re: WFT's Off-Season Thread

I'm not getting into the politics but are there women's kitted leagues (obvs amateur) in the USA? We've got them in Europe, even international tournaments, though obviously as they've only been around a few years, the quality isn't great.

I've no issue at all with a woman working in the NFL, on the field or otherwise if she is there by merit and not for virtue signalling. If a woman wants to play and she's capable of competing with male players what's the issue? But I would have thought if women really want to play then setting up women's leagues is the way to go, not trying to break into the NFL. Nobody has a problem with the WNBA being in existence do they?

PS I suspect there are plenty of women that would qualify as a better NT than Albert Haynesworth did, if only from an effort perspective!

PPS From looks alone, anyone would think Rodrigo Blankenship was out of place in the NFL; he looks more like a Google employee. There are women out there look more like an NFL player than he does.
