Crazy Kicker of Preseason Week 2

The Crazy Kicker of the second week of the preseason didn’t choose this mantle – it was forced upon him. The Chicago Bears’ regular long-snapper, Patrick Mannelly, was sidelined by a neck stinger for the preseason game against the Oakland Raiders. So tight end Desmond Clark (Go Deacs!) had to fill in. The results weren’t good. In the second quarter, lined up for a 38-yard field goal attempt, Clark bounced a snap to holder Brad Maynard. Kicker Robbie Gould picked up the ball and tried to heave a deep pass, but he was called for intentional grounding.

Give Gould credit for trying to make something out of nothing. Also, give him the honor of Crazy Kicker of the Week.
