This is why I truly believe it was for publicity from the jump...
From an article on ESPNw (which is ESPN for women and I had no idea that it existed):
So to whoever said earlier in the thread that they were mad b/c she got a tryout and they never will... WRONG. You have $275, you have a tryout. Have at it. But make sure your quads are ready for the push-ups and crunches.
Good research. Though to be fair, she wouldn't be the first person to try out as a kicker without much or any football background (heck, we had one on roster here).
I'm gonna round up $275 and go for it

In all seriousness this was a joke. Did you hear 1 of her answers how she hoped video games would prepare her physically for the NFL. And I'm an all star QB because I throw 5500+ yards and 55+ tds a season in madden.

No one has mentioned the part about her doing push-ups and crunches during her 30-minute warm-up and not kicking a single ball...this seems like a huge joke to me. Better get that upper body strong for your kicking tryout!! That's a shame...I was rooting for her. She just kind of annoys me now.
I don't care about her quad injury, she could have found a way to prepare herself for this moment if she wanted to. Like someone else said before, her technique is laughable...she had zero follow-through on either kick.
Like someone else said, if she was already hurting before the kick, doing a pre-kick wouldn't make sense.

Nope, not in the slightest
Could it have hurt a little bit?
but if she at all deserved to be there, she still would have kicked it further, injury or not
Im glad you could provide your doctoral expertise.

Well Dee actually punted the ball about 80 yards before hurting herself and they got to meet Donovan Mcnabb.
