Redskins flounder on Monday Night Football

How Do Field Goals and Touchbacks Correlate?

After a Week 1 loss to the Miami Dolphins, the Washington Redskins did something that they have done a lot under the tenure of Dan Snyder: they released their kicker. While few outside of Washington or outside of the rare 16- or 20- team fantasy football league may have heard of him, Kai Forbath was a very reliable kicker.In three years of duty as the Redskins' placekicker, Forbath...

You’ll never guess how Dustin Hopkins prepared for his NFL debut!

Dustin Hopkins the newly signed kicker for the Washington Redskins was reportedly kicking last week in a public park in New Orleans with his wife as his place holder. Now thats love. I’m sure that freshly cut grass on Fed Ex Field will fell a little bit different than a public parks grass, and he may not know his place holder as well now after being signed. This story was first...

Saints kicker battle is Dustin Hopkins vs. Zach Hocker… for now

I don’t think many of us pictured the Saints carrying Dustin Hopkins and Zach Hocker as their two kickers on the 90 man roster right now, and yet here we are. What’s most surprising about this is that Sean Payton has never not had a veteran battling it out in camp before. Whether it was John Carney, Olindo Mare, Martin Grammatica, John Kasay or Shayne Graham, there has always...
