    Has anybody else seen this Kickalicious - YouTube ?? Holy crap what an absolute cannon this kid has. His accuracy, even with moving targets is uncanny. He's Norwegian, (another Jan Stenerud?) being worked out by Les Miserables, and he wants to sign an NFL contract for 2013. If they sign him that's one thing they'll have done right.

    I would hesitate to say that a "trick kicker" could turn NFL but he has such total control over his accuracy and distance that, cripes, how does he miss with the NFL?

    I just saw that. He is amazing! So much for the "Ghostkoswki is a good kicker". Ghost is 50/50 at about 40 yards. Not good, IMO.

    I'd be VERY interested to see what he can do without the benefit of editing but if he's legit I think we should SIGN THE BEAST!

    Just comes down to being able to repeat the fundamentals in games.

    I get "video unavailable" when I try to play it.

    Regardless of whether this kid is the real deal, I think that there are good kickers out there who can be had as UDFAs. Gostkowski has something like a $3.4M cap hit this year and $3.8M next year, and he's just not worth it. Cutting him would save $1.8M this year and $3M in 2014. Meanwhile the Rams got Greg Zuerlein as a 6th round pick and the Ravens got Justin Tucker as a UDFA.

    Try searching on Youtube for "kickalicious". It's the first video in the return list.

    He's actually fun to watch. What an odd concept.

    GUYS, how sure are we that these aren't fake? I've seen fake long-range thread-the-needle kicks like that from NFL placekickers on TV commercials.

    Someone posted that here before. I cant help but think it's a lot of camera tricks and editing. I've heard that about similar videos. Like, them kicking it many times until they get it and then edit it in, which is quite a feat in itself. Still hard to do, but made to look a lot easier. There is a lot of software available to do some crazy things. Still quite talented tho

    Sorry, when I said he was being worked out by Les Miserables I meant the Jets. He's for real. I hate to think of them getting him but maybe he won't make the transition so swell.

    obviously, there are a ton of misses that aren't shown. But still impressive.

    Here's the thing, though: there was absolutely no reason the Patriots needed to make Gostkowski the second-highest paid kicker in NFL history. . . . but they did. So why did BB et al. feel that was a good move to make?

    Watch the clouds. You can see that there is minimal editing; NOT a long time between kicks. Guy is for real.

    That said, no way we can afford to sign him. Can you imagine the freight bill flying in Lbs of fresh sardines every day?

    If this site is to be believed, the Jets tried him out somewhat recently and he couldn't displace the shaky Folk.

    But considering the Jets canned Woodhead and extended Sanchez, that may not be a bad thing.

    If by 50/50 you mean 70/30, then yes.

    How many missed kicks were edited out? I can make a sixty yarder if the camera man holds my cane and I get 1,000,000 tries.:)

    uh...I don't think anyone who shares an oar on a Viking long boat with the Sven Svincters of the Northern Triangle should be hatin' on the descendants of victims that were prey of the horn swoggling, blonde haired sackers and pillagers...just sayin'...

    98% of that stuff is nice, but playing hackey sack with the ball before doing a spin kick over your head does not translate to the game.:)

    According to broadcasters, every kicker was making 60 yarders BEFORE the game. I assume it is different when 300 pound guys are not trying to stop your kick.

    I don't think those things were meant to be eaten without ample embellishment ... Like, whatever that white blob is (cheese?) in the pictured serving suggestion. But yeah, I remember having those as a kid and it sucking all the moisture out of my body.

    No you couldn't. Have you ever tried? It's not as easy as it looks. And to another poster, no not every kicker is making 60 yarders before the game.

    This guy could walk in and be better than Goskowski on day 1. Gost has a bit of choker in him, sorry to say. Defintely not worth the money.
