re: An opportunity ... don't lose it

Dear Mike. Bad luck last night man. It's tough to be a field goal kicker who misses two game winning field goals when your job is on the line. Now, granted, this was your first game back after an "Leon-esque" injury, but seriously, Mikey, Jerry is paying you 5 Mill to undo the carnage from last year when the 'Boys lost 3 games by missed field goals. Games that could've cemented the Boys into the playoffs.

Now, we have two last minute opportunities to end the preseason on a high note, and you shanked it to the right both times. I caught you post-game interview. You tried to sluff it off as a bad day at the office followed by a pledge to kick 100 times a day until you figure it out. First off, are you telling me you DON'T kick 100 times a day? Maybe that's your problem.

Secondly, I was in Oxnard during camp before you were injured and the right side of the uprights was your favorite spot to place the ball. You have to face facts, Mike. You've developed a slice. And a slice is bad news for the NFLs most accurate kicker.

But the very fact that you enjoy that accolade buys you a lot of love, #13, so, think it out. Go back to the fundamentals. Kick those 100 field goals a day and focus. And think of this: If the Cowboys can take the SuperBowl this year, and particularly off your foot, where are right now will not only be forgotten, but you can undo the bitter memory of SuperBowl 5. The sheer fact that you were once a Colt makes it worth keeping you for that very reason.

It's an opportunity, Mikey. Carpe Diem.
