Bad day for female kicker hopeful Silberman

Results of first female kicker to try out at combine:

"Silberman's participation at the NFL regional scouting combine in New Jersey lasted all of two underwhelming kickoffs before she limped off with a quadriceps injury.

The Associated Press reported that Silberman's kickoffs traveled 19 and 13 yards, respectively. You can see the second attempt here. After the final kick, Silberman waved over a trainer, effectively ending her day."

I originally said some REALLY mean stuff before editing, but I couldn't do any better.

19 yards! That is an incredible kick for a bowling ball painted as a football.

Hey, better than some of Nortman's punts last year!

That sucks for her...

With that said I can kick for a hell of a lot longer than 19 yards.

And I can throw a football over mountains

In all honesty, I was very jealous that a female had an NFL tryout, something I will never EVER get, so I posted some mean shovanist jokes but then realized I couldn't have done any better and this thread would have not ended well for me.

I was wondering how long it would take for a Nortman joke

man that's unfortunate for her. it would have been awesome for her to lay some hotshot out that thought they were going to waltz in a touchdown return

In all honesty, how'd she get the tryout? Her form is atrocious and looks like how you'd expect a chick to kick. Not how "the first female athlete to get a tryout at a pro sponsored event" should look. She kicks like my 8 year old son.

I have to assume her leg was REALLY REALLY fuged up. So much so that she couldn't follow through or reach back or plant her foot or anything. It looked at best to be an attempt at an onside kick.
