I agree. If I was a kicker I would be expecting the opposing team to call a timeout to try to "ice me." If anything, not
calling the timeout might do more to interrupt my timing.
I didn't start watching the Seahawks-Falcons game until about three minutes to go. Earlier I had told my son Jason that the game was over when he said Atlanta was leading 27-7, which just goes to show what I know.
