    Me too, but throwing is chucking not chunking.

A 30-yard FG is really difficult for any grown-up to miss.

    With yesterday's events, Barnes might have blown any chance he has to make the NFL. I seriously doubt they'll even give him a look now. Sad.
    Did you kick an official size ball off the ground, no tee, without a kick-off style running-start? I'm not saying you didn't do this, but saying any grown-up can make a 30 yard FG is very laughable. Factor in game conditions and playing stakes, and kicking is not an easy task. Snap being slightly off, holder placing the ball an inch or two from "the spot" or with the laces wrong-- these all play a part. Kicking FGs is not easy by any stretch.

    That said, Barnes choked and I expect more from a Lou Groza candidate!
