Raider's Sebastian Janikowski ties Tom Dempsey's 63 yd FG tonight on MNF

The Raider's Sebastian Janikowski tied the Saint's Tom Dempsey for the longest field goal in NFL history tonight on Monday Night Football with a 63 yard boot. The record is shared by three kickers now since it was also tied by Denver's Jason Elam a few years ago. The ESPN broadcast crew must have had a premonition he might try a long one. They showed a tape of Janikowski hitting a 70 yarder in pregame warmups just before he came on the field to hit the record kick.

I think Janikowski is the guy most likely to break the record. 63yds is a looong looong kick.

I think what makes the Dempsey kick so great, is that it was to win the game.

Put an asterik by the other 2 kicks. Both of them in Denver with the lighter air not the heavy humid air of being below sea level.

Then there's the fact that the other 2 have a whole foot....

If I were a kicker these days and kicking a 63 yard field goal, I'd go ahead and back it up another yard for the hell of it. Who wants to share a record with 2 or 3 other douchebag kickers?

By the way, Skymike made sure he mentioned Saints and Dempsey kicking below sea level this morning on Houston radio when he read the scores after his traffic report.
Way to go Mikey!

It's funny because there is controvery with all three kicks. 2 in mile high, and one with a modified shoe. The science was already done on the modified shoe and the verdict was it had no effect on the kick. There is a video on here somewhere about it so yes, an asterick should be put next to the mile high kicks.


I just wish I could have been a fly on the wall when the State Trooper and Demsey, and whoever else was drinking beer hooting with othe owls celebrating. That was the story he gave to HBO.

The modified shoe had no point, that's where all the force in concentrated. I don't think this was brought up in the video. I'm no physics major, just took some classes in college but it's common sense. F=M(A), if the force is distributed across a cut off shoe then some of that force won't be fully transferred, some of it will diminishes or lost on the edges. This is the main reason I think Demp holds the title.
