    Talk about being disingenuous. He harped repeatedly for about a whole minute on TV Good morning football about Kingsberry “icing his own kicker” which couldn’t be further from the truth.

    The reality is he ran down the sideline and called the time out prior to the kick to save a delay of game penalty.... saving the team 5 yards not his fault Zane miss the next one from 44 not 49. Hindsight is it was the right call and a heads up TO call by the coach. But nobody in the country would know that by watching good morning football unless you watched the game. Not saying KK didn’t make mistakes but this wasn’t one of them.

    It wasn't even him - it was an assistant that ran to tell him. But to his credit, KK2 took the blame for it.

    Peter Schraeger is usually a Cards homer. This news surprises me a bit.

    People on this board who presumably watched the game are also accusing KK of icing Zane in the KK thread. Doesn't really make sense, even on the replay you can see the flag was thrown for delay of game.

    I think they were just pushing the narrative of how crazy the game was and felt that icing the kicker played into that more than a delay of game.

    There was major confusion when KK sent out the FG team on second down a the offense was still on the field. So the offense was slow getting off the field and that is when KK should have used his timeout to clear up the confusion at a critical point in the game.

    Our team did ice our own kicker. Not sure how that is controversial. That is in coaches and players. Luckily, we won anyway.

    one thing that has been demonstrated: KK will ALWAYS take the heat for this players

    while there is lots not to like about that entire sequence, this is about KK preserving his kickers confidence

    I blame kk not for the timeout but for kicking the field on second down when they were marching on the field pretty easily

    They didn’t? Obviously the team didn’t communicate quickly enough, didn’t set up quickly enough, and didn’t snap the ball in time forcing them to call time out as our kicker made the kick. Then after the timeout the kicker botched it. Obviously, it wasn’t intentional but that is the very definition of icing a kicker.

    no... The coach called for the field goal which is well within his rights the team didn’t get off quickly enough that’s on the players not the coach… They should listen to what they’re told and get off the field so I can be done properly whether you agree with it or not.

    it's not the first time kk calls a timeout just when our kicker made a field goal, then his kicker fail it on the second attempt
    He was just too worry about avoiding the delay of game penalty
    However, Shrager in this case is stating something stupid
