Why did we let go of Kasay?

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

doesn't mean he's as accurate as Kasay. Kasay's accuracy and leg strength is better.

You don't take that chance and give the other team the ball on the 40 yard line if he misses it. Not when the field is a bad as it was. It has nothing to do with Mare's leg. The Jags didn't move the ball all day so it was an obvious choice.

I'm pretty positive that if Kasey was still on this team, Rivera would have still punted. Rivera probably considered field conditions.

I don't really get the play calling there. If Baker would've pinned them inside the ten or the five, then the play would've definitely made sense. But, I don't see how you don't go for the win, especially when you've signed a guy because he has incredible leg strength.

I know, I know, the field was wet. But, you go for the win.

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.

How many touchbacks does Mare have?

how many kicks has he missed?

If Kasay was our kicker there is no reason to believe Kasay gets a chance at those opportunities.......and we have less touchbacks

The coaches wouldn't let Kasay attempt those kicks, either. Mare's leg is about 20 yards stronger than Kasay's.

It has nothing to do with leg strength, those were dumbass decisions.

fixed.

I'm pretty sure the field conditions and weather had alot to do with the decisions.....damn, we win, get over it.

Yes, he is. They both have almost the exact same career accuracy.

Stop being emotionally attached, Kasay isn't a Panther anymore.

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?

Even with the best kicker in the league that is a terribly risky call to make, with a 6 pt lead and a very wet field. The jags would gain tremendous field position and there would be quite a bit more time on the clock if they missed the FG. They did the right thing. Push them back to the 20 with less than a minute to go. The jags took the field and made huge gains, but ran out of time. Imagine if they would have started on the 50 and had a full minute to burn. Taking in to account the....performance... of this team today, I wouldn't trust our team to succeed with such a risky call... they might get lucky... but they played so terribly today... better to stick with the safer options.

I could give 2 poos about touchbacks if that means we are taking points off the board. Kasay gives us 22 points today if he's still on the team.

It was a short FG that Kasay would definately make without a question.

I don't get it either. I understand the philosophy behind it, but the O wasn't playing well enough today to warrant leaving those points on the field. Don't like it. BTW, Kasay has been killing it Aintsland.
