The simple answer, Donovan McNabb, is no.
The former Eagles quarterback took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon to ask his followers if they thought Jason Tucker was the best clutch kicker in NFL history. Jason’s leg wasn’t of much help to the Ravens on Monday night — as it was nonexistent– but his pal with a similar name, Justin Tucker, could certainly be in the running to be considered one of the most clutch kickers in the game.
Tucker was undoubtedly the star of the game against the Lions, scoring all 18 of Baltimore’s points en route to their stunning come-from-behind win. The placekicker notched six field goals on the night, including a 61-yarder with just 38 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, but even his game-winner wasn’t enough to warrant name recognition from the six-time Pro Bowler.
McNabb deleted his “oops” tweet and has since sent out a new tweet replacing Jason with Justin asking the same question. Given the grief he presumably received for his mix-up, it’s safe to assume that he won’t be forgetting the Baltimore kicker’s name anytime soon, but for all you Jason Tucker’s out there, enjoy your moment.
