View Full Version : What's the history of headcase kickers?

I'm asking because, despite lip service from Herman's sermon, Medlock has not been added to the practice squad.

It's entirely possible that Medlock's lackluster showing in games and practices have labeled him a headcase, and has scared not only the Chiefs off from starting him, but 31 other teams in the league from giving him a shot.

The most accurate kicker in the history of the NFL was Mike Vanderjagt, who can't get a job anymore because he became a headcase in Dallas. Three teams drafted rookie kickers this year instead of taking a chance on the most accurate kicker in NFL history.

So what's the story with kickers? If they cross into the Headcase Zone, do they never return? Is there any hope whatsoever for either of these gentlemen?

some beatup bouncers
some get drunk and mouth off
some hurt themselves in celebration
some pick fights with other kickers/punters
some inflame entire fan bases
