I dont even think icing the kicker works anyways
It does work my friend, the 98 vikings are on the verge of putting away the falcons... falcons call a timeout and Gary Anderson has a few moments to ponder his perfect season.. he sets up, the kick, the attempt is wide.. resulting in an overtime loss to the falcons.
You could say that it was b/c of the icing but nobody really knows. He could have missed the field goal anyways. I think by giving the kicker more time to think about it actually helps him. He can take a few more practice kicks into the net and get himself more focused.
More time =more success anyway you look at it. If a QB has more time to make his throw, it helps. If an NBA players has more time to shoot the game winning shot, it helps.
If you don't call a timeout then he is rushed into the kick which, I think, he then has a higher probability of missing it.
-Just my two cents
