Glad to hear Keiser got bumped ahead of Norwood. Keiser deserves a spot on this team with his hard work, and his heady play. 2 sacks last night for Keiser, if I recall correctly. He isnt the strongest, fastest, biggest guy, but he uses his hands very well, and has a relentless attitude. Love me some Keiser.


I hate to make the easy comparison (white guy to white guy), but he reminds me A LOT of Grant Wistrom.

I think Nortman will hang around honestly.
No need to cut punters/kickers until after the last game.


Unless they are named Mare.

I just don't think Norwood has it. If he could excel in a 3-4 defense he would be used in our 3-4 packages. I had forgotten he was on the team.

I doubt Nortman gets cut. he's been very solid the last 3 games.


Idk, for some reason, I get the feeling that they favor Harris. I was actually pulling for Nortman and thought Harris was a journeyman scrub when we signed him, but surprisingly, Harris has been more impressive to me by far.

I thought Norwood would work out when we drafted him. outside of Lafell none of our high round picks from 09 draft have panned out here.

This place is going to need some strong medication to get over the likliehood I see fo the team sticking with Mare.

I think Mare will end up staying as well. Medlock's got a pitiful kickoff leg - I have no idea why, but he can barely get it to cross the endzone. Given our kickoff coverage (or lack thereof, especially last night), booting it out of the endzone is actually pretty valuable.

You may be right. It's a horrible dilemma for the fanbase when each time he trots out there 90% of us are hoping he misses so they will cut him... I just don't think he'll ever win over the fans even if he came in and was lights out this year, which I don't see happening anyway considering he can't kick beyond 50 yards and is iffy from 40 and in.

It was Mare's job to lose and he hasn't lost it... Medlock is as good as gone.

I just hope they give him the benefit of the doubt or one of the Ps can actually kickoff instead. But, it is extremely unnerving each kickoff... It feels like the opposing returner is always one guy away from a TD, and that goes for Mare too when they don't go out of the endzone.

Did he get 2 sacks last night? I didn't notice. He's already had several this preseason.


It looks like Keiser officially got 1.5 sacks last night. I didn't realize one of his sacks was a split sack with Frank Alexander. I thought Frank got there a little late.. didn't think he deserved the half sack.
I am pretty sure Keiser leads the team with preseason sacks.

It's why I put no credence into anything our media says. We had Reed or whoever saying that Medlock had a noticably stronger leg yet he can't kick off for shiit. I just didn't see Medlock distinguish himself in any way.

I think harris may have outplayed nortman but not enough that we would cut a guy that we used a pick on

Mare didn't lose the job, but I do think Medlock 'won it'. Both kickers have kicked 100% accuracy in the 3 preseason games. However, Medlock has had the longer FG attempts and has been deadly. Mare has the stronger kickoff leg, but we can't afford to lose Medlocks (approx. 5 yard) range difference on FGs.

I figure Mare's range is about 48, and Medlock is 53.
