Brett Maher Cowboys kicker Brett Maher struggled mightily during the first half of Monday’s Wild Card game with the Buccaneers.

Monday’s Wild Card matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers featured one of the worst kicking performances in NFL history from Cowboys kicker Brett Maher, who has had a historically bad night after missing four extra points in the game. His poor performance led to a hilarious message from Hall of Fame kicker Morten Andersen.

Andersen took to social media on Monday during the game and asked a simple question about the Cowboys’ starting kicking job moving forward.

“Are the Cowboys hiring?” tweeted Anderson after Maher’s struggles on Monday night.

Frustrated Cowboys fans replied to this tweet from Andersen, saying jokingly that they would love to have him instead of Maher after his extremely poor showing on Monday night.

“They will be momentarily…” one fan tweeted.

“We will take you in a heartbeat Mort,” another fan wrote.

While Andersen is obviously kidding and not seriously considering an NFL return, he perhaps knows more than anyone how it feels to go through struggles on a huge stage in the postseason.

While the legendary kicker never had these kinds of struggles, he did miss an easy 26-yard field goal in the only Super Bowl appearance of his career in 1999 against the Denver Broncos.

While things may look rough for Brett Maher at this point, he was at least able to redeem himself slightly by finally making his fifth extra-point attempt of the game in the fourth quarter, which was received with a number of cheers from fans in attendance.

It is unclear whether the Cowboys will hold onto Maher moving forward in their postseason run with these struggles, but the Cowboys may want to call Morten Andersen before looking at the remainder of free-agent kickers.
