Top Ten Greatest Kickers of All Time

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports Kickers are people too. It’s easy to forget until the end of the game when you realize your happiness and the team’s success lie solely, well, in the sole of his shoe.

Long the ugly stepchild in locker rooms, the NFL kicker in recent years has seen quite a gain in popularity. Postseason heroics of guys like Adam Vinatieri and record-setting efforts like Matt Prater's have helped kickers' credibility, but it's the increased strength in their legs and their smack talk where kickers really have made inroads. And now one of the biggest...

Adam Vinatieri and Stephen Gostkowski have largely created a legacy of mistake...
