Tony Dungy made an interesting point yesterday on the Dan Patrick Show. He felt that it is foolish to call a timeout so late that the kicker gets (effectively) a practice kick, gauge the wind, etc. He's OK with trying to ice them by calling a timeout well before the kick, but [to mix metaphors?] "don't let them warm up!"
Seems like a reasonable distinction.

This strikes me as a first-world problem.
