There was plenty of kicker craziness in Week 14 – from a pass by Raiders P Shane Lechler to plenty of onside kicks, both good and bad. But no play was crazier than what happened to the 49ers and P Andy Lee. Lee, serving as a holder on a 50-yard field-goal try, instead threw a pass to Jonathan Goodwin (normally a center) for a 32-yard touchdown. However, the play was blown dead because the Cardinals had challenged the previous play just before the snap. On the ensuing kick, David Akers missed, and instead of leading 13-0 the 49ers quickly gave up a touchdown and found themselves trailing.
It didn’t count, but it was crazy, and that makes Andy Lee our crazy kicker of the week.
