ASHBURN, Va. - As Kai Forbath, former UCLA kicker, took the field at Redskin Park Thursday there was an eerie feeling that loomed. The fourteenth kicker signed by the club in the last thirteen years was surrounded by the same aura as the rest of the lot. It was a feeling of hope, or perhaps, hopelessness. Forbath has the unenviable job of attempted to reverse the "curse" that many locals around here believe has existed since 1999. The general vibe in the local area is that it didn't matter which of the three kickers that the Redskins brought in for a tryout were signed. Whether it was Josh Brown, Olindo Mare, or Kai Forbath, each of them would have to contend with Special Teams Coach Danny Smith.

"It's execution, man. It's execution," said Special Teams captain Lorenzo Alexander. Alexander has been a Redskins Special Teams standout for several years now, and has a close relationship with Smith. "Everyone says [Danny] is responsible for all of this. But it starts and ends with us. He can't get on the field and block people. We need to be held accountable as players."

And while that is true, Coach Mike Shanahan didn't necessarily believe that to be the case.

"We've gone ahead and hired a guy to work with Kai on escape and evade techniques."

A follow up was asked if he meant in regards to escaping pressure on field goal attempts, and Shanahan further refined his answer, "No. Not at all. We hired the guy to keep him away from [Smith]."

Shocking words from the head coach, but it was much easier to wrap your head around those words when Kai was seen executing a double backflip somersault manuever to evade Smith as he approached him in practice.

For those curious, I've done a solid amount of research and found the guy's name that they hired to work with Kai... His name is Hiden Gosikh.

(Yes, I posted all of this stellar info on the other site, but I thought you guys should know. It's important :laugh:)

If we all repeat this a bunch of times, any chance it will turn out to be true?

Gotta say, I'm a little disappointed that none of you have talked about Hiden Gosikh yet. He's extremely reputable!

Even Danny Smith can't screw up the awesome that is, Kai Forbath.

But at least the new coach won't cost us anything.

Cause he's Ollie Ollie, and therefore, income free.

Wow, you actually had me believing, up until the next to last paragraph.

And it's not because I'm gullible. It's due to the sad state of the franchise, that it's actually believable they would do such a thing. And actually have set a precedent for it in the past.

Okay, so how do we know if this information is true or not, since it was posted in a joke thread
