Swinging for perfection

Everyone was watching last season when Connor Barth suffered through the first kicking slump of his life, missing eight of his first 11 field-goal attempts. The miscues began with a technical malfunction: He wasn't spacing his pre-kick footsteps consistently every time he took three steps back, then two to his left. It sounds simple enough, but it can be the difference between three points or zero. (Raleigh News & Observer)
