    greg the leg

    Can anyone tell me if a single kicker in nfl history has kicked 2 field goals of 58 or longer in the same game?

    " Rookie K Greg Zuerlein is first player in league history to hit a 60-yard and 50-plus yard field goal in the same game. #YoungGZ "

    - Rams twitter

    He is also the first rookie kicker ever to hit from 60+!

    Re: greg the leg

    The youngster is really something special to watch, I'll tell you that. It hasnt sunk in i yet ( for me at least ) to know that our rookie K and P are playing like veterans, and at such a high level. They have stepped in and simply overwhelmed us with 60+ yarders and deep, game/field/momentum changing punts. I must say, I am truly impressed with not only them but the scouting dept. for locating such exceptional talent that late in the draft, if not then in the undrafted free agent pool

    I thought Janikowski would be the guy who broke Tom Dempsey's eternal-standing 63 yard record but I don't see that happening for him any more. Legatron? Definitely can see him doing it and it might even be this year.

    He and Janikowski tied it. Akers may have also, but 63 is still the record.

    No sir, Dempsey, Elam, Janikowski & Akers are all tied at 63 yards.

    I see Legatron breaking that record if he gets the chance.

    Re: greg the leg

    I stand corrected gentlemen on the record, and i agree that The Leg has a legitimate shot to break that mark.

    Re: greg the leg

    Entering into field goal range after just crossing mid-field, thats a weapon.

    Greg has scored all of our points the last two games. Actually, that is really scary and intensely sad.

    Let's hope he doesn't. As much as I appreciate having a kicker who can hit from that range, if we're kicking a 58-yarder, that means the offense has stalled at about the 41.

    Depends on the situation and the score of that particular game if it happens. If we are up big it won't matter much that the offense stalled.

    Silver linings, my friend.
