What's our kicking situation this year?

58 posts in this topic

Answer me this. Where there not other opportunities to win the game, aside from a field goal?

Also don't tell me you're still butt hurt about the Kasay kickoff from the Panthers Super bowl too.

Hmmm the Superbowl was what, 7 seasons ago? Why are you comparing 7 seasons ago to a season ago? And no. I was never mad at Kasay because he made clutch kicks during the season when called upon because that's his JOB. No one is perfect, people make mistakes, but Mare made too many. So many mistakes that it was alarming to Ron Rivera and had to sit down and talk with him.

lol, ok. Like kickers don't miss. People will have to get over it sooner or later.

Its kinda what they are paid to do. Last time i checked no one liked a surgeon that had a few "mistakes ".

I have to disagree with this, at least for the vikings game. There is no way the game should have come down to a last second fg attempt to tie. That game was a fail for offense, defense and the kicking game

Still, the offense busted their tails back to give Mare an easy kick to go OT. Which kicking is his forte, he should've finish it. If it was Kasay, he would've made that looked simple. But it's Mare. The dude clearly suck. We all knows that. Kasay was cut, and Mare was signed due to only that Kasay was old and can't kick off touchbacks anymore. I'm sure everyone on the team knows that also.

If all the team wants is a kicker who can get touchbacks and is not willing to let a kicker who they doesn't have confident in kicking from 45-50 yds, why have the guy on the team. If the stories are true about Medlock kicking from the other 45, Medlock should the guy. He sure can get touchbacks also right? We seen all season that Rivera doesn't have confident in Mare that's why we hardly sees Mare attempting any FGs.

Because people love to bring it up. Just like mare, it's done, over. I hope you realize Kasay missed as many if not more kicks as Mare last year. Just saying.

The comparison is a bit bleak. A surgeon may end someones life. A kicker kicks the ball through the uprights or he doesn't. One could be life and death. The other, not so much. Well depending on the fans, I've known some that would kill a person for missing a kick or four.

Yah, can't really compare a KO to kicking a FG. Everytimes Kasay was to attempt a FG, we all had confidence that he was going to make it. But Mare, the whole season you can tell that Rivera did not have confidence in him. There was so many times that we choose to punt over trying to kick a FG last season.

Please don't speak out of your ass.

Kasay made as many as Mare attempted last season for a 82.4 kicking percentage to Mare's pathetic 78.6.

How about you get your facts straight, they both missed 6 fuging field goals einstien.

Mare: 22-28

Kasay: 28-34

Can you count or even read what I said in the beginning? I guess that's a no. I never said, he made as many or attempted. I said he MISSED. Learn to read dude.

They are both Jobs that are expected to be perfect. Also mare makes more money than allot of surgeons do so one would expect he would be at least competent at his job.
