Why did we let go of Kasay?

96 posts in this topic

We let go of Kasay, to sign a kicker with a weak leg. If we still had him, I bet you we would have 22 points on the board instead of 16. It really hurts us when we can't get automatic 3's anymore.

I never agreed with letting Kasay go. If for nothing else, loyalty, but we didn't have to use that b/c he was Mr. Reliable.

Well Mare kicks it out of the end zone but I agree with you point. A FG puts that game away and he wont attempt a 51 yarder, we gained 13 yds on the punt, which has happened several tines this year.

You let go of Kasay, for someone who you can't trust to make 50+ field goals when Kasay could make them? And wtf happened at the end? You have zero confidence in your kicker to make a short FG from that range?

Weak leg? are you serious?

Why else are we electing to punt instead of going for 50+ FGs?

Game 1: We don't go for the 53 yarder which would have won the game if we hadn't come up 1 yard short.

Today: Didn't go for the 53 yarder first half when it had just started raining. Didn't go for the 50 yarder which would have iced it.

Insane.

The coaches seem to think he has a weak leg, considering we're passing up on 50-55 yard field goals. In fact, we just passed on a game clinching 53 yarder(think it was that long) in favor of a punt.

That's Rivera's call, but it has nothing to do with Mare's leg strength, he has a stronger leg than Kasay.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
