Why did we let go of Kasay?

It's all on Rivera playing super conservative for a rookie coach. It's surreal.

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 strategy decisions.

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

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

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