Last night the NFL tried something knew by narrowing the uprights and it was a success in some people’s opinion. Indianapolis kicker Adam Vinatieri learned the hard way how tough it will be to kick between narrower uprights. He missed two of four extra points and a field goal from 38 yards.
“The only one I had [a] question on was the last field goal and [punter Kevin] Huber, my holder, said, ‘Oh, for sure that was good,'” Vinatieri said. “I know the other ones all would’ve been good. I probably would’ve made all my kicks today and walked out of here feeling a little happier than I am right now. A little discouraged, or a little upset with myself. I also got to look back and go, ‘I definitely need to work on some skinny posts’ if we’re going to be doing this stuff.”
Cody Parkey nailed his two extra points, but did not attempt a field goal. He too felt the small uprights were more difficult.
“They’re picking on us,” he said. “We’re already the odd balls on the team. They’re picking on us even more.”
