What the fuck has John Kasay ever done for us?

Kasay has missed the two most important kicks of his career. I hope he gets the chance to change that this year.

It appears that the most important kicks of your career are also the most difficult (hence why they are important - if it was an easy kick then it's usually not labelled as important). OK OK, maybe the first one was ridiculous, but this one can't really be blamed on him. Of course, this is just my opinion.

I started a thread on this late last night (early this morning). While I think Kasay has done a great deal for this franchise, he is at his worst in big games. That is unfortunately a fact.

Really? That kick is not what cost us the game. Poor play calling and playing it safe, the d-line without Kemo, and a couple penalties at the wrong time. Honestly it turned when we had to start on the 1 and they, in return, got good field position on the next drive.

Are you serious? I was disappointed that Kasay missed but not surprised. With the length of the kick and the wind that was a very difficult kick. But think about it, if Coach Fox had decided to forego the kick and try to keep driving it down the field you would be pissed at him and questioning his sanity for not relying on Kasay to finish the game for us. Bottom line, it was Fox's call and I think he made the right one. Make the FG, game over; miss, rely on our D to stop them and we get another shot. We just didn't anticipate being run over on their last posession.

Oh right, kicking the ball out of bounds in the Superbowl and missing the most important field goal of the entire franchises history.

He's the kicker version of Tony Romo, puts up pretty stats, then chokes when it matters. f*ck you nutthuggers. :banghead:

Kasay is a great kicker! However, even though you will get crucified for this thread, the Superbowl kickoff and now the botched FG with home field advantage on the line are permanently etched into the minds of many loyal panther fans.

Kasay is a great kicker. If you want to play the retard blame game point the finger at Smitty for deciding he was a wrestler on the play where he cost us 10 yards of field position. Better yet, look forward, we win next week and we're a number 2 seed.

Yeah i couldnt believe he thought he was going to get away with what he was doing, he was prolly pissed he didnt catch the ball on the previous play... it cost us. what was that little stutter step kasey did before the ball was snapped?

I'd like to hear from the man (Kasay) what happened with the mechanics of the play. He hesitated and quite frankly, did a good job to just get enough leg on the ball to give it a chance. Was it a bad snap? What happened?

I do not agree. He was 1-1 in the Superbowl, hitting a 50 yarder. Thats a pretty big game. In the final 3 regular season games of 2003, he went 7-7 in fg's in three wins that helped us to clinch the division. He also went 5-5 in the playoff game against Dallas that got us started on the run to the Superbowl. In our 2005 playoff run, John Kasay was 6-6 for the entire playoff run. Those are all big games, and since playoff games are always bigger than regular season games, most of the games I mentioned were bigger than last night.
