Look, Mare couldn't even attempt FGs of 50+... According to reports, Medlock was hitting them regularly since day one in practice. He just has to get the jitters out. Or at least that's all we can hope for.

Truth is, eventually we were going to have to move forward from Kasay anyway, and ultimately, odds were that whoever the next guy was wouldn't be as consistent as Kasay. So, we have a relatively young, inexperienced kicker with tons of leg and questionable accuracy... Best we can do is hope it pans out, and that's that.

Didn't watch the game, but the two misses are listed as 50 and 56 yards. Probably not going to be kicking any 56 yarders in a real game, but he should be making those 50 yarders. How bad did he miss them?

John Kasay kicked a 55 yard FG in 2010 lol.

Medlock has played for 9 teams since being drafted. That wouldn't have been the case if he were a good kicker. He seemed to take that first miss pretty hard. Maybe he can't put misses behind him.

I heard he had a towel on his head.

I watched Kasay in the preseason and he's taken a step back. His leg just don't have it anymore.


bigger bolts?

lol I'm just trolling both sides at this point. I'm pretty undecided about Medlock.

A team that will be in close games because of crappy D and crappy STs needs a kicker with brass balls.

It does seem like he takes misses extra hard. I actually found it weird that RR went straight up to him after the miss, and still, Medlock looked like he was about to cry.

I'm hoping for the best... Hopefully the staff shows enough confidence in him that he believes in himself enough not to stay down about them. If he made them in practice regularly, then it's purely mental, which can be fixed. Mare had no chance because he flat out sucked.
