Barefoot kickers.

Post  bigbluelarry on Sun Jan 26, 2014 7:12 pm

On the first Sunday without football I re-watched Super Bowl XXI. One of the memories that came back to me after watching Rich Karlis set the Super Bowl record with a 48-yard field goal was, what happened to barefoot kickers?

I've compiled ones here from memory. Feel free to add others.

Rich Karlis 1982-1990


Tony Franklin 1979-1988


Mike Lansford 1982-1990


Paul McFadden 1984-1989


I had thought I'd remembered Ray Wersching as barefoot, but all the photos I found of him he had two cleats.

Ray Wersching 1973-1987

It almost seems like the barefoot kicker was something of a 1980s fad in the NFL. Don't know why this didn't last longer.
