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]
