Last night I watched Brett Maher, the kicker for the Dallas Cowboys, miss a field goal with his team, America’s team, down three points. It was Maher’s fourth missed kick in three games and he now has the most misses in a single season by any kicker in the last four years. And there are still three games to play.
Meanwhile, Austin MacGinnis, who worked out for the Cowboys last weekend and is currently living in Dallas, can’t get a shot in the National Football League. With professional kickers shanking chip-shots each and every Sunday, MacGinnis still waits for that first opportunity to show the league what we already know here in Kentucky: that he’s accurate, consistent and clutch.
One day a GM will come to his or her senses and sign MacGinnis to get buckets in the NFL. Until then, I will continue the fight for him.
With that, here are five reasons Austin MacGinnis should be on an NFL roster.
