Seahawks coach Pete Carrol called it “fortunate” Blair Walsh of the Vikings missed a late-game 27-yard FG. I’m thinking when it’s about -30C with wind chill, a kicker doesn’t get more iced.


  1. That must be similar to kicking a brick in those conditions!

  2. Must be. And Blair kept them in the game earlier with some kicks of 40+ yards. A Saskatchewan Roughrider kicker missed a similar kick (chip-shot-wise not frozen-conditions-wise) in a playoff against the Lions about 10 years or so back. He received death threats to him and his family, and a farmer dropped a truckload of manure on the kicker's driveway. Just awful!
