The one position that is probably most often taken for granted on any football team is the placekicker. As long as the kicker produces he's almost anonymous, but just let him miss one when the game is on the line --- can you say wide right? --- and everyone notices. The same is true when the kicker produces in the clutch. Can anyone forget Matt Leach drilling that 33-yard field goal in 2003 to give the Florida Gators their win over Georgia in the annual cocktail party?
