Mare has had a long career of uneven, but mostly above average production, so it's not like this past season was an aberration. He has made an average of 84% of field goals between 30-39 yards for his career, and missed 2 huge ones in that range last season. I'm sure Rivera would say he expects a higher than 84% success rate on 30something yard FGs. That is supposed to be money for a high-salaried kicker.
You would hope that paying a veteran premium kicker salary would give you consistency if nothing else, and that is where Mare failed to perform the most last season.

You should learn how percentages work.
It doesn't matter if they both missed 6 field goals. Kasay attempted and made more. Therefore his percentage is higher and better than Mare's.
Im sorry you're math is only on a 3rd grade level.
And your reading comprehension is that of a 2 year old. ( I really shouldn't insult 2 yo's like that..) I don't care about percentages, they missed the same amount of field goals. Never did I say any of the comments you're implying. The point was that they both missed field goals. I'm sure the Saints* fans are livid that he missed that many like Panthers fans around here.... (sarcasm in case you can't understand that last sentence.)
They miss field goals and it's understandable. That's the point.
