What happened with Lauren Silberman?
Lauren Silberman, the first woman to try out for an NFL team, via the Regional Combine at the Meadowlands...absolutely BALLED up her tryout. Like, she did about what I could do kicking a ball.
What's weird, to me, is you see a video later into the piece where she kicked a ball through the uprights at some sort of "Fan Experience" type thing. I mean, the distance there is closer, but still...she managed to kick the ball up through the uprights from at least 15-20 yards away.
During the combine, the kicked the ball...roughly 15 yards. Total. Like not even close to FG height either.
Was this just a publicity stunt? Or did she just decide to pony up 275 bucks on a whim? The sad part is, I'd bet there are MANY women who could do somewhat decently, but THIS is the first thing we see on that storyline..
“When I think of a Baltimore Raven - we go in there, we take your lunch box, we take your sandwich, we take your juice box, we take your applesauce, and we take your spork and we break it. And we leave you with an empty lunch. That’s the Baltimore Raven way.” - Steve Smith Sr.
Call me a Special Teams coach again. I dare you! I double dare you, MFer!
