    Another game and another blocked field goal. That's seven this year. Slocum says that they are mostly blocking issues and not because of Crosby's trajectory. I read an interesting nugget:

    My mind is to use your opponents momentum against them - a basic tenant of judo that is applicable to most sports and life. I think it would be wise to attempt a fake FG sometime in the next game to take the heat off of the FG blocking units, similar to how a screen pass makes a defense think twice about rushing the passer hard.
