One of my favorite positions in the NFL is the kicker. They normally aren't quite as physically intimidating as the rest of the squad, but the kicker still has the power to make or break a season.
A missed field goal can be a heavy burden to bear when it comes at the expense of a playoff berth.
On the other hand, sending that football directly down the middle of those two yellow posts can whip up a celebratory frenzy faster than bleeding fish in a shark tank. (Gross, I know. I was at a loss for comparisons though).
Even with all of the pressure exerted on these strong-footed men, however, kickers still get no respect. Most people, teammates and coaches included, don't even consider them "real" football players.
I beg to differ.
I previously penned an article rating, in my personal opinion, the top 10 hottest quarterbacks in the league.
Now it's the kickers' turn.
Because kickers are cute, too.
