    Fact: Kickers statistically make less field goals when you ice them vs when you dont. Enough said!

    Yeah, it's ridiculous that coaches still do that out of habit, when the actual stats suggest it has no affect or even is beneficial to the kicker.

    Except that isn't a fact. They showed the stat during the Jets game. Percent of makes go up after opposing team calls timeout.

    Exactly. Those are the numbers that I'm aware of as well, though it might be hard to find a link.

    Edit: While looking for links I found that some studies say it works and some say it doesn't. Hard to know for sure.
    Why so gloomy?
