    WOW!!! Did anyone else see that? I wonder if Mason's big leg can do that?

    That was amazing!

    I hope to never find out if Mason can do that with the game on the line.

    And did you see that wide one to the right the Denver kicker missed?
    That one went into another time zone.

    Crosby could make a 63 yarder in his sleep. Actually, that's the only way Crosby could make a 63 yarder, if he were asleep and dreamed it.

    I still think Dempsey's was the best one. The other two kicked them in Denver's thinner air. Dempsey did it about sea level, and he only had like half a foot.

    I saw on some website last year that Mason hit a 64 yard field goal or something like it in practice... Practice is practice but it shows he has the leg strength.. Anyways Crosby has 98 power in Madden and I made a 63 yard field goal playing online :)

    Having the leg is one thing, having the leg and the accuracy is quite another. He may have a 98 for leg strength, but at least for >45 yards he should have a 60 for accuracy.

    I always hear how big of a leg he has, and I always was of the notion that this new kick off rule would have him consistently kicking them out the back of the endzone. I know he may have done it once or twice throughout preseason and week one but more times than not its not going much deeper into the endzone than last year. Any chance this is a strategy to try to get them to run it out from 5 yds deep and maybe get them down before the 20 (doubtful with our coverage units). Or is his leg just not as big as advertised.

    That is unreal. There are punters in the NFL who cant even punt a 70 yearder!

    Yeah.
    And I always breath a sigh of relief just when he makes the extra point.

    I think for some of us Mason has yet to earn our trust.
    And the only way he will do that is by kicking clutch field goals.
    And frankly, I hope it doesn't come down to that.

    Whenever the topic is about kickers and somehow Mason comes up, am I the only one anticipating GBP to come on in and comment?
