Kicker Question

18 posts in this topic

What's the deal with marquee kickers just falling off the face of the planet? Just wondering how the greatest clutch kicker of all time (Viniateri) and the most accurate (Vanderjagt) are not currently employed by the NFL.

I've always had a theory that Tom Terrific wouldn't have poo for bling if not for Adam. Maybe we drop Kasay and Lloyd and pick him up to win us a championship? Just trying to think of a subject that doesn't involve Lenny, LT, or Westbrook.

He does play for the Colts, but he had a couple leg surgeries last season so they had to bring in Stover.

Drop Kasay?!?!?!? You BAST*RD!!! He could be the greatest Panther of all time (Depending on who you argue with) and the only original guy left. I am one of the more hard hearted fans. I am all for cutting a guy when he gets old, rather than have them play and keep the team from developing new talent... but even I wouldnt have the heart to cut Kasay. I know he is starting to lose some of that step, but he is the most loyal Panther of them all. Long live Kasay. He has won many many games for us and I hope he can kick for us until he retires.

Rhys Lloyd has potential. He has a super strong kick. Teach him to show some accuracy, and he could make it as a really good kicker for us.

Teach him accuracy?? I'm sure that's all they've been trying to teach him... He's a kicker, it's not like the have much else to work on in practice outside of...... Kicking

Whens the last time you actually saw him kick. I don't think he has even attempted a FG in preseason. Unless any have seen him kick they might have already fixed the accuracy as I have heard he was drilling 50+ yarders before a couple of games.

You know, people always talk about Kasay being the only original Panther left and more emotional pleas as to keeping him on the team. But let's look at it from a perspective of: Is he worth it?

The answer, based purely on his accuracy, clutch capabilities, leadership, locker room presence and projected longevity would have to be an unquestioned Yes, he is definitely worth it.

Look at how many teams are either struggling to find a franchise kicker or are limping along with some retread on their fourth or fifth team. We're lucky to have Kasay with us, not just for who the guy is, but also for his skills. Lloyd has been an inexpensive pick up to make with the deep kick offs (and he's been excellent) and he does make a good understudy, but Kasay is still one of the best in the league.

Like a pre-2000 Toyota, let's keep him rolling until the tires fall off and he won't let us down.

    • @Panthro Proving Medical Malpractice Based on Diagnostic Errors The law does not hold doctors legally responsible for all diagnostic errors. Instead, patients usually must prove three things in order to prevail in a medical malpractice lawsuit based on a wrong diagnosis: A doctor-patient relationship existed. The doctor was negligent -- that is, did not provide treatment in a reasonably skillful and competent manner. The doctor's negligence caused actual injury to the patient. Most medical malpractice cases hinge on either the second or third element (or both) -- was the doctor negligent and did that negligence harm the patient?   Easily provable  1. ER dr saw mom and had all the records. Mom was healthy prior, no issues besides a murmur she was born with. 2. Motrin does dot fix the flu especially if you one has A and B. Greenville drs from ICU would testify against New Bern ER doc. No tamiflu prescribed nor any other treatment besides Motrin. (Anybody can take Tylenol/asprin but tamiflu is prescribed) 3. Without x raying or running further test, mom went from early caught flu to both pneumonia that now developed 3rd stage ARDS and now pulmonary fibrosis is setting in. Due this negligence, mom will live at most 5 years in poor quality will my dad ends bankrupt. I just proved how not properly treating mom has lead to a snowball effect due to incompetence which lead to where we are now. Dad was not given a course of action, he does not have a M.D. at the end of his name, and the hippocratic oath has been tarnished. I am in the settle or I will find out how he will lose his license. I will file a complaint with the hospital and board. Publish in the newspaper about his care and online. My mom will never be the same.
