Not a Record They Wanted

There are good records to have and there are bad records. An example of a bad record would be “Most special teams touchdowns allowed in a season.”  That’s not something you want on your resume if you’re a special teams coach – unfortunately for Paul Ferraro of the Vikings, this dubious distinction does indeed now belong to him and the unit he supervises.  And just to make it a tiny bit worse, the Vikings share this record with the 1980 Lions.  You never want to share any kind of record for futility with any Lions teams.  That’s just humiliating.  And, sadly for the Vikings, they still have 7 more games to allow another punt return TD and hold that record all by themselves.  Of course we know this is all Chris Kluwe‘s fault for kicking it different than how Brad Childress told him.  Seems unfair that the whole special teams should be blamed when it’s the stupid punter…
