How about this? You go out there in below zero degrees and a strong wind in your face and attempt one kick all day with no real warmups and see how you do.
Misses happen in perfect conditions on 50+ yard kicks in a freaking dome. The ones he was facing were about the worst conditions one can face.
Are you really arguing that the weather caused that miss? He chunked the ground, man. Took out his shovel wedge and chunked one into the ****ing trap.
When he missed, I immediately had flashbacks to '96 and Elam's missed extra point... which had us chasing the score for the rest of the game. It was a bad omen of things to come.
