Born on November 11, 1968 in Euless, Texas was K Lin Elliott. He joined the Chiefs as a free agent in 1994 after two seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, including a trip to the Super Bowl. Elliott kicked for two seasons with the Chiefs (1994-95), hitting 49 of 60 FG attempts and 64 of 67 PAT kicks. But it was his missed FGs against Indianapolis in the ‘95 playoffs that ended his NFL career. Elliott was wide right on a 35-yard attempt, and wide left on kicks from 30 and 42 yards in the Chiefs 10-7 defeat. (Hat tip to Bob Gretz)
Remembering those missed kicks still makes me sick to my stomach. Marty too, I am sure.
