Poor Scott Norwood: He was an average-to-above-average kicker, making a Pro Bowl, but he'll always be remembered for one thing: In Super Bowl XXV, he was asked to make a 47-yarder -- not a chip shot, not even close -- and although he got enough leg on it, he missed it wide right.
Although his inability to make a difficult field goal did cost the Bills that Super Bowl, he didn't cause them to lose the next year, or the year after that, or the year after that. But it did basically end Norwood's career -- he'd play one more season, convert a career-low 62.1 percent of his attempts, and then would leave the NFL and go into insurance and real estate.
And thus, when you see a Scott Norwood jersey, it looks like this:
Bravo, sir. I'm not sure how you made this -- did you order a custom Scott Norwood jersey, then cut the name/number panels and resew them on? Did you sew on the letters? This is a well-executed joke jersey, in a world filled with bad ones.

What IS disturbing, however, is the dude in the Brian Moorman jersey next to him. Are they in a special teams-jersey only bar? Is Bills fandom so sad that Bills fans regularly sport jerseys of their two-time Pro Bowl ex-punter?
