The necessary accuracy from those distances doesn't change with elevation. I suppose you could make the point that he didn't need to kick it as hard, so he could be more accurate, but I'm pretty sure that's not very true either. And Elam does kick at 1 mile high, thats a pretty big deal.
I totally agree skibrett. That whole elevation thing is blown way out of proportion. He kicked 6 in that game right? So when exactly did he kick the other ten? During practice of that game? No, it was during the other games of the season, at all different altitudes. Get a clue, the guy was kicking plenty of FG's, and while he may not do it all year long, you certainly can't fault others for picking the guy up while you slept on him.
