San Diego Chargers K Nate Kaeding is Writing AND He Is Kinda Funny


It looks like Nate Kaeding knows what he plans on doing after he is done “kicking balls through poles”. He started writing for The Gazette, an Iowa Paper, and here is a snippet of his work:

But let’s be real. Being a kicker is beat-your-head-against-the-wall boring.

I warm up. I wait. I worry. And then, for a few seconds each week, I execute.The monotony, even more than the pressure, has been the undoing of many a kicker.

My biggest complaint is my job’s lack of creativity. In fact, thinking much at all usually results in a shanked kick, boos from the fans, and silence from my teammates.

At least you know he will be honest in his essays!

Don’t think Nate!!! Just don’t think!!

          ^This. we know he can kick in the regular season. we know he can win games. we’ve seen him do it and that’s what so frustrating. we just expect better.
