His kickoff distance is way better than Medlock. The kicker spot is gonna be a tougher decision than I thought.

If Medlock could just kickoff he would have this job. What the fug is wrong with his leg on kickoffs?

Kicking off of a tee for 70 yards is a bit different than having it on the ground with a holder. Some guys just struggle with kickoffs. Even if it hits at the 5 and we give the opposing offense the ball at around the 30, that isn't a big deal. Coverage has to be there whether we kick it 5 yards into the endzone or 10 yards short of the endzone.

If Medlock's allergy to touchbacks continues, Mare will be the kicker going into the season.

Meh, "short" kickoffs aren't much of a problem if you have good ST tackling/play. Some teams like shorter kickoffs to pin team inside the 10-15 instead of touchbacks.

So kicking it past the goal line is short?

mare hate just seems to be "in" right now. i know we are trying to be "young" and all, and develop our guys. but mare has been in the league, and [hopefully] can take pressure situations. i look at it as:

mare's spot to lose

medlock has to wow me to take over the spot

medlock has been good, but nothing unbelievable, e.g., the weak leg on kicks offs [which means A LOT considering our shoddy special teams]

I don't like Mare but Medlock is freaking me out. How do you have such a strong leg on FG but weak on kickoffs?

Screw Mare. He sucks when it comes to FGs long then 40. Even tho Medlock might not do great on kickoffs. FGs are far more important. We need someone who kick the FG from like 54 and make it without missing it. Medlock seems to be that guy. Medlock can always get better with kickoffs. But Mare can never get no better at making long FGs. I want to see Mare gone. Screw him.

Not when it comes to our special teams and field position. Medlock kickoffs give up 15 more yards then Mare. 15 yards means a lot for our defense.

Because its Medlock's fault that the KO team can't tackle.

conspiracy theory:

the ST coach is telling medlock to kick it short so we can see our coverage team try and do their job right...

Medlock is the better place kicker, but man, he was about 1 or 2 guys away from two more kickoff returns for TDs tonight. And after last year, I can't stand Mare.

I just hope Medlock gets more consistent at getting it into the endzone, at least halfway, with some decent hangtime. If he can do that, the job is his.

Medlock needs to practice those kickoffs. This job is his if he gets that straightened out.

Does anyone else notice on XP's Mare's kicks look like knuckle balls when they go through and it's not even down the middle...I mean ya it's still good. But Medlock's kicks stay true and travel straight....and his FGs stay true as well...

Does this even matter?..it's kind of a minor detail...but just something I noticed...

Field Goal > Touchbacks

You can improve coverage teams. You can't improve a kickers ability to hit from 50+.
