NFL teams should hire Basketball players for their onside kick teams

The average height of an NFL player is 6' 1.5". NBA players like Yao Ming are 7' 6". This is over a foot taller than the average NFL player. Therefore, on an onside kick, if the kicker kicked it up high, someone like Yao Ming could jump up and get it before anyone else had a chance.

Superbowl Predictions

Saints will jump to an early lead, but Peyton Manning will lead the Colts back to win it in the 4th quarter.      Colts 35 Saints 31

My Donation

If the Colts win, I will donate $50 to Pierre Garcon's Haiti Fund.
