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.[/quote]

I also rememer the Titans vs Steelers in the divisional round a few years ago. Titans ready for the game winning kick and the Steelers call a timeout right at the snap and got it. Meanwhile the kick goes through and all the fireworks go off. Then the kicker had to rekick and MISSED but flopped and got a roughing the kicker call so he got a 3rd chance and hit it..... FREAKIN KICKERS!!!

Later he admitted to acting that &%$^%#^%&^%$%.....

Nedney right?

How could they seriously think about doing this? Icing the kicker is one of the greatest strategies in football...there's nothing wrong with it, it's a strategy, not cheating by any means. Both teams have the same number of time outs, how they decide to use them is their problem.

Mike Martz must be corrupting Tagliabue.

It might have worked on Kaeding, too, in the playoffs. he sure looked pretty tight. What bugs me is when the announcers always say "this is known as icing the kicker", like they're imparting some inside info.

the casual "only watch the playoffs" football fan might not know, or youngsters who just into the sport wouldn't either. As a result, we hear the same thing over and over.

Ask the Jets and the Steelers if icing the kicker works. :-o

I can't remember the last time icing the kicker worked in the pros on any usual chipshot field goal. Maybe in college, but not in pro.

I love icing the kicker! It builds lots of drama if it is a game-winning or tying situation. I saw it work a few times last season too, most notably the playoff games the Jets played.

Don't pass this rule!

exactly... i dont know why the nfl wants to get rid of it, it just makes their viewers watch longer. and if you, as an nfl kicker, cant make the kick after being "iced" then you dont deserve to make all that money kicking a football...

What bugs me is TV timeouts before and after kickoff. You watch 2 minutes of commercials, 10 seconds of football, then 2 more minutes of commercials. At least, that's the way it was before NFL Season Ticket and fantasy football, now the remote is in constant use.
