Mark Moseley’s Straight-On Kicking DVD

There’s not a lot of straight-on kickers left in football these days, unless you count flag football and middle schoolers. But, if you’re looking to perfect your straight-on kicking style (I certainly am) Moseley’s training videos are now available on YouTube. Seems pretty simple to me…1 and a half steps and hit it in the sweet spot. This coupled with a single-bar face mask can earn you a 66% accuracy percentage and a NFL MVP award! The mullet/perm is optional.

Hall Worthy? Moseley and Manley

As a Washington Redskins fan, I strongly believe that a lot more players should be in the NFL Hall of Fame. As a franchise we have made strides in the last few years with the additions of Green, Monk and Grimm, but there’s still more players that are deserving of a bust in Canton. Over the next week or so I’m going to take an objective third party look at some of the players that I believe may be HOF worthy. Next up will be Charles Mann and Joe Theismann.

Mark Moseley

Argument for enshrinement: He’s the only kicker to win a MVP award, which he did in 1982 and weighs heavily in my opinion. He led the league in FG’s 4 times and was in the top 10 in scoring 8 different seasons. He also made 2 Pro Bowls and still ranks #22 on the NFL’s all-time scoring list.

Argument against enshrinement: The career #’s are simply average when stacked against other kickers. Also, with the exception of the 82’ season he was not very accurate, making only 65% of his FG attempts for his career.

Hall of Famer in my opinion? No, the numbers simply don’t add up, in fact, they say that he’s far from it. Thanks for 1982 though…and the hair!

Actual chances of making the HOF: Zero point zero.

Dexter Manley

Case for enshrinement: He led all defensive ends in sacks for the entire decade of the 80’s with 91. Ranks 25th on career sack list with 97.5. 2-time Super Bowl champion.

Argument against enshrinement: Career derailed by drugs and off field issues. Only made 1 Pro Bowl and was only in the top 10 in sacks 2 seasons.

Hall of Famer in my opinion? No, there’s a long line of defensive ends in front of him with better numbers. 2 seasons when Dexter was playing at his highest level (82 & 87) were cut short by strikes. If those were full seasons and Dexter could have played an additional couple seasons drug-free, he’d have a strong case. But then again, if my aunt had nuts she’d be my uncle.

Actual chances of making the HOF: Zero

Cheers and Hail

3/11-3/14 Redskins Bdays

Happy birthday Mark Moseley. Mark played 13 seasons for the Redskins from 1974-86. Mark was a 2 time Pro Bowler and in 1982 became the only kicker in the history of the NFL to be named MVP. Mark lead the NFL in 1983 with 161 pts and remains the Skins all-time leading scorer with 1,206 pts. The last of the straight on kickers and one of the last players with the single bar helmets…Mark should be in the NFL HOF. In retirement Mark became the director of franchising for the 5 Guys restaurant chain, I’m assuming that has rewarded him well. Happy 62nd Mr. Moseley.

Happy birthday Alvin Walton. Alvin played 6 seasons at safety for the Redskins from 1986-91. #40 appeared in 77 games with the Redskins, winning 2 Super Bowls. Alvin had 12 interceptions and countless tackles (no records) during his Redskins tenure…I remember him tackling Joe Morris about 100 times alone. In retirement Alvin played some more in the CFL and won a Grey Cup. He’s one of my favorites…happy 46th Mr. Walton.

Happy birthday Dan Wilkinson. “Big Daddy” played 5 seasons at D-tackle for the Redskins from 1998-2002. #95 appeared in 76 games collecting 23 sacks and 138 tackled during his tenure. His best season came in 99’ when he had 8 sacks and rambled 88 yards with an INT return for a TD. Dan retired after the 2006 season, his 12th in the NFL. Happy 37th Mr. Wilkinson.

Happy birthday Shawn Springs. Shawn played 5 seasons for the Redskins
from 2004-08. #24 appeared in 64 games at cornerback, intercepting 12
balls while returning 2 for TD’s. Shawn also had 7 sacks and 251 tackles
during his tenure. The Virginia native spent last season with the Patriots.
Happy 35th Mr. Springs.

Happy birthday Fred Stokes. Fred played 4 seasons at defensive end for the
Redskins from 1989-1992. Fred never missed a game during his Redskins
tenure, appearing in all 64 regular season contests. Fred had 20.5 sacks, 127
tackles (at least) and 9 fumble recoveries as a Redskin. #60 has a Super
Bowl ring from the 91’ season. In retirement Fred works as a motivational
speaker. Happy 46th Mr. Stokes.
