NFL's Lame Female Kicker

SET WOMEN BACK

Lauren Silberman
-- the female kicker who failed spectacularly at her NFL tryout this weekend -- set women back YEARS ... so claims an up-and-coming female football star who is very, very angry.

Mo Isom (left) -- an LSU student who could become the second female major college football player ever  -- tells TMZ, she's shocked at Lauren's "lack of preparedness, training, skill and ability."

Mo is not going so far as to suggest ... putting Lauren in the NFL Regional Combine was designed to torpedo the movement to bring women into the sport, but she can't believe Lauren became the poster child for female football players:  "I trained for YEARS to kick a 53-yard field goal.  To assume just because you're a soccer player means that you can kick a football is VERY off base."

Lauren's first kick was an embarrassing 19 yards.  The second was an even more embarrassing 13 yards.

Mo realizes ... skeptics now feel vindicated, claiming Lauren has proved the NFL should be men only.  And she knows ... a woman now needs to kick ass to turn things around.

She was a dud, yes. That wouldn't stop me from doing what I want to do though. As far as women in the NFL? I'm a woman but can't say I support it. They'd get destroyed out there. Silly idea imo. Sounds good till you get pummeled by a 300lb linebacker. Good luck with that...

Men are just better at sports that matter. Her efforts only reconfirm that statement.

Women try should be the best woman they can be instead of trying to be a faint copy of a man.

They can bring her out to kick field goals when the field is wet. She won't slip with a 6-inch heel stuck in the ground.

Why Can't women be women and men be men? Why must gay men be fashion designers and interior decorators? Why does any woman want to get on the field with 275lb head hunters to get their ass bulldozed? I'm a big guy, 6/1 260..., and I know I wouldn't enjoy a bernard pollard or a some headhunter screaming down the field to deck me. I'm not saying she has to take up knitting, but in field where Size, Muscle mass, and aggression are key elements WOMEN don't belong. This isn't soccer, or filed hockey with gals in plaid skirts, these meat eating, body crushers are just bizzare. To give you a perspective..."Mean Joe Green" of the steelers? based on his size and stats, would not even be a starter today, he would get bulldozed. Starting tackles/guards in the 70's were 6/2 240-275,,today starting tackles and guards are 6/6-6/8 275-325,,thats a HUGEEEEE difference

http://m.guardiannews.com/sport/2013/mar/02/lauren-silberman-female-kicker-nfl In this article she says that she prepared for the tryout by playing video games. I think this Lauren girl is a self-promoting idiot. Probably has something she needs to market on the horizon.

This is a way better article that the former one about the lingerie bowl. She might not be a good football player but at least tmz is realizing and not making a mockery out of her in suggesting the lingerie bowl :::gags:::
