it's a new team. they need to move forward without him...and they have.
Morestead did the kickoffs for the Saints**. If Nortman can do that, I would at least think about it. John Kasay did so much more for the panthers than just kick field goals.
it's probably time for the fan base as well.

Let's bring back all the players we cut and fill the roster with them. Nostalgia!
Can we resign Biakabutuka?
Posted 31 August 2012 - 06:08 PM
Sure, for one day. Time to retire.
Exactly what I was going to say...sign him till we get our first Home game and let him retire...maybe even kick an extra point for us or something lol

Medlock is the guy. Let's let him settle in at least before we start thinkin of other kickers please. Yes he missed 56/50 yarders on the worst kicking surface in the league. But those kicks were bombs. He will be ok
Per Pat Y. Espn South Blog
The 50-yarder would have tied the record for longest field goal by an NFL player at that stadium.

Let's hope Medlock is more reliable than Mare was. Plenty were saying it's Mare's job last season and throwing plenty of support behind him. Didn't work out so well.

missing those two long kicks in that most difficult place to kick them does not mean he doesn't have his act together.
People keep bringing up the fact that a 50-yard FG would be the longest FG at the Steelers' stadium, but do people not realize Suisham (Steelers' kicker) made a 49-yarder (a whole 1 yard less), with relative ease IIRC, just that same night? So I wouldn't keep falling back on that "horrible field for kicking" excuse. Although it definitely helps to put things in perspective a bit...it's still concerning that he missed those kicks by a good margin. Suisham has been pretty mediocre for his career and it's just his 3rd season with the Steelers too. For the record though, I really like Medlock and I want the Panthers to stick with him for the long haul...just hope he gets his act together quick.
how many 50 yarders did kasay ever kick there? how many 50 yarders has any made there? how many have tried?
