Kicker battle getting serious!

47 posts in this topic

"He sucked & lost games for us."

He lost one game for certain, and you're absolutely correct, not another single player on this team made a single play that cost "us" a win last season.

Really? We are down to an elementary school reasoning level?

He is a 'kicker'. There is only room for ONE on the team. A kicker is under more scrutiny than even a QB for his performance, b/c at the end of the game it ultimately can end with them & they don't get extra chances. A WR, RB, LB, etc. all get opportunities to redeem themselves; kickers know that this is the career choice they have made.

I really want Medlock to make it. He's already said this is his last time trying the NFL.

Almost every panther fan hates Mare. Why the hell would you keep the guy? "oh he can kick touchbacks!!" big sshit. if you cant rely on the guy to make an important fg, then that guy is crap. Clutch is key. Medlock has a leg, with practice on technique he will be booming touchbacks too. fug Mare... fug him rrreeaaallll hard man

Which comes first the chicken or the egg?

Confucious says:

In order for Mare to kick the touchback, he must first make the fg.

Sign Medlock

I think it comes down to who makes the first mistake.

I'm rooting for Medlock.

Its strange that he has not kicked touchbacks as he was doing so consistently in training camp.

To me every time Mare makes a FG, you feel a sigh of relief, which is not the feeling you want to have from your kicker. We should know who wins the battle after the next game.

Sadly I think if they are still even Mare will win out. :(

Mare was second in the league in touchbacks lasts season with 53. The only guy in front of him, ironically, is the New Orleans punter, Thomas Morstead, who does kickoff duties for the Saints**. Why? Because John Kasay is on that team.

Morstead has done kickoffs since he entered the league, has nothing to do with Kasay being on the team.

I am not sure what is up with Meddy. I agree that if he plans on making this team he has to improve his KO. He has to get them into and through the endzone or all those FGs are for naught.

Mare is an 80+% FG kicker with a great KO. He is our kicker, for better or worse even made it into my sports. Shyzl

No matter how many kickoffs Mare kicks out of the endzone you still have to go with the guy who seems to gives you gauranteed points in Medlock.

The way our team is now built our Defense has to be in a "bend but dont break" mentality which makes us such a deadlier team. I will give teams 3 all day against us because the likely hood of our Offense driving down the field matching 3 with Medlock or even scoring a TD is greatly in our favor.

Should be interesting I am pulling for Medlock, he's hungry, got a hell of a leg and seems very reliable. It would be the smart decision and I will loose the little bit of respect I have for Hurney if he keeps Mares old, non-dependant, overpaid bitch ass over the cheaper, younger and better kicker MEDLOCK

i hope medlock makes the team. the guy is young, he'd be a lot cheaper, he hasn't given us doubt like mare. sure mare is a great touchback kick off man, but who says medlock can't learn. mare is on his way out of the league simply due to age.

fact is our team is weak vs people who dare to return vs us, but we shouldnt be picking our kicker based on this...
