Just three days after Olindo Mare missed his second field goal of the season with the game on the line, he found himself sharing the practice field with undrafted rookie Adi Kunalic, who re-signed with Carolina on Tuesday.

"The last time something like this happened, I made 30 in a row. Maybe I need this to help me focus. We'll see," Mare said. "These things make you stronger, and they make you better.

"It's competition, just like in camp when we were together. If you're scared of competition, then you've got the wrong job."

Millions to kick a damn football and he needs help focusing?

I'd cut him for that statement right there.

who knew finding a kicker to make 35 ysard field goals would prove to be such a challenge

I hope this isn't another display of FO incompetence. I am not sure why you would pay a kicker with a 75% FG rating all that money. Aren't FGs kind of hte main thing for a kicker? Touchbacks are nice and all I guess but who gives a fug about kickoffs, let's find a 'FG specialist'.

If Rivera needs to use two roster spots than that is what he needs to do, I hope he rethinks that because doesn't look like he is able to fill the role with only one slot. Can you imagine relying on Mare in the post season? He's already chocking 30 yarders on a 2-3 win team when it doesn't even matter, try a dome in the post season we'd be fuged.

totally agree. I am happy that Rivera addressed this problem this season instead of just brushing it off and letting it roll into the offseason. He is sticking with his strategy that the rest of the season is basically a tryout for everyone next year.

LOLindo is awful. I really hope we find an upgrade in the offseason. This UDFA is nothing really, a KO specialist who attempted like one FG in college. To be fair, he was behind a BAMF of a kicker though, so maybe he has something we don't see. The FO obviously thought enough and saw enough of him in TC to bring him back on board...

So now we need two kickers on the roster just so Mare can better focus. We should have just kept Kasay and Lloyd if that is the case.

Remember when we didn't have to worry about field goals? Those were the days.

Whatever happened to that guy?
