Rookies, from what we're led to believe, are supposed to be seen and not heard. Kickers, from what we're led to believe, are supposed to be seen and not heard. Going by simple mathematics, then, it stands to reason that rookie kickers are really, really supposed to be seen and not heard.
However, in the case of The Blair Walsh Project™, we're more than willing to make an exception, particularly if he keeps giving us stuff like this:
Been waiting 2 tweet this. Fun "final" fact of the preseason, Audie Cole (linebacker) has more touchdowns than the entire Jets offense!— Blair Walsh (@BlairWalsh3) September 3, 2012
Or, more accurately, Audie Cole scored more touchdowns in the span of 13 seconds than the Jets did in four full pre-season games.
It takes some guts for a rookie kicker to make such a declaration. Of course, if he shows this kind of determination when it comes time to make a high pressure kick in a big situation, then the guy can say whatever he damn well pleases. He's got a ways to go to catch Chris Kluwe for the title of "funniest Minnesota Vikings specialist," but maybe that's something he's working on as well.
