Ghosts of kickers past

Cold Hard Football Facts decided to rub salt into the wound of a winless season this week with their Captain Comeback segment. In spite of a horrific season, the reminder that yet another long field goal doomed the Colts last year was a direct result of poor clock management is simply too much for me to handle:

The Jaguars overachieved a bit on their record in 2010 thanks to some abnormal late-game victories. We already talked about the Hail Mary, but earlier in the season they had another fortunate win. After the Colts tied the game at 28, the Jaguars were content to play for overtime. But Jim Caldwell called a timeout, and Jacksonville actually tried to win the game. Josh Scobee made a 59-yard field goal, because that’s what Scobee does against the Colts.
