    It's not like she was any worse at the combine than Sanchez was on Thanksgiving.

    No one could possibly be as bad as Sanchez was on Thanksgiving. The ass fumble will be the worst of the worst on ESPN until next year.

    They're a franchise with no direction right now.

    That's typically how questions and answers work.

    I don't know why you're so hostile in this thread but participation is completely voluntary.
    And then all the womans rights groups would want to convict the coaches and the players that tackled her of some kind of Violence Against Women law.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    Epic kicker fail...



    Seriously...the first kick TRAVELED 19 yards in the air but never cleared 7 feet in height. The second kick traveled all of 13 yards. To call this a 'triumph' for anything is just plain...silly. Publicity stunt...OK...dismal failure...sure. Look...there are some female soccer players that could probably kick a decent 30-40 yard field goal in football...but they arent football players and arent trying to pretend that they are. If anything...this display set BACK womens rights about 30 years. Go fix a sammich for the 'real football players.

    Now this gal has real potential.

    hardly news worthy.

    Lauren Silberman stages pointless sideshow at regional combine - NFL.com
    275 ??!!

    Hell I can kick a football almost 50 yards. I'm off to the tryouts.

    Who do you think put up the 275 ? Oprah ?

    Re: First woman to try out for the NFL

    The question should be IF she made it, and you were running one back and she was the only thing standing
    between you and the endzone, would you go soft on her or run through her ?

    Albeit small, punt returners, they are usually the fastest guy out there and are explosively powerful.

    You hit her hard, like Rianna in a Lambo, you get the TD but your'e the new Chris Brown.

    You go soft and she manages to trip you up, you, a pro-football player, just got tackled by a girl.

    Maybe. Honestly, I'm not sure that I've ever seen a female football player at the high school level (I've seen a few) who I felt had the physical skills to compete at even the college level, nevermind the NFL level. If there really were female linemen, backs, linebackers, etc... who could compete at the college level, then maybe there would be a point to allowing them to try out. Every couple years there's a female punter or placekicker who gets a shot at some small college somewhere. That's fine. I just don't see enough women at even the college level to make their inclusion in the NFL combines worth anyone's time except as a sideshow.

    Definitely.

    I suppose the NFL just doesn't want to get a bad name for banning women outright.
