Donovan McNabb posed a serious question to his Twitter followers today: “Is Jason Tucker the best clutch kicker in NFL History?” Jason Tucker, of course, is a kid I graduated high school with.* While my high school football team always went for 2 on the rare occasion they scored a touchdown, Tucker did actually handle kickoff duties. I’m sure it surprise many of my classmates to find out that former Super Bowl participant Donovan McNabb would consider Tucker the best clutch kicker in NFL History. That’s high praise.
*McNabb may have been referring to Justin Tucker, the Baltimore Ravens kicker who went 6-6 and nailed a 61-yard field goal last night to beat the Lions on Monday Night Football.
