If you can’t name the Philadelphia Eagles kicker going into this season, don’t feel bad.
It seems the kickers we remember are the ones that always miss big kicks.
Meanwhile, the bird’s Jake Elliott just keeps consistently nailing one long, clutch field goal after the next.
And if something ever happened to him, heaven forbid—seems the Birds have another kicker that can take his place—but you would never guess his name.
Because he is a she.
And that would be world champion soccer star Carli Lloyd—who is a die hard Eagles fan, and was visiting Philadelphia's camp yesterday showing off her leg.
Not only did Carli hit a 40-yard field goals flawlessly, with room to spare, she even hit this 55-yarder.
And that makes me realize I owe Codey Parkey, formerly of the Bears, an apology.
Turns out he doesn’t kick like a girl.
But he sure wishes he could.
