Meanwhile, Falcons have some kicker woes.

Recommended Posts

Seems like we're not the only ones who have a kicking debacle in the NFC South.

The Falcons have signed Blair Walsh after their Matt Bryant replacement went 4/8 in the preseason, shanking a 30 yarder to boot. And, well, that's also not going good for them.

Well, there you have it. More kicker controversies in the NFC South.

Joey Slye.

I’m not saying, I’m just saying. They probably give him a good look if he gets cut.

I'm not sure I'd call our kicker situation a "debacle" considering how Slye has kicked in the preseason. Hell, this may turn out to be a blessing in disguise for us.

Could be if we don't make the right decision.

Won't lie. I'm nervous.

If we let Slye walk for nothing after what transpired with Butker we deserve to be a laughingstock.

Slye going to the Falcons and being bad / mediocre? Obviously, I could live with that.

Slye going to the Falcons and being great, though? That is some serious high octane nightmare fuel.

I wouldn't even care if we traded him for an above average draft pick. Seeing a guy we let go make a division rival better for the next decade would be awful. Every kick he made against us would be like a personal kick in the balls.

With our luck with kickers, we will cut Slye and Atlanta will pick him up.  And we will spend what will seem an eternity discussing keeping Gano over better options like Butker and Slye.  

Just saying.

Slye will be here and Ganono will be on IR 

Best case scenario... Gano to IR, Slye kicks well, Gano released next offseason, Slye signed to a more reasonable contract.

Best case scenario is Gano is good for the season, we trade Slye to the Bears for a fourth rounder and the Falcons start wondering if anyone still has Morten Anderson on speed dial.

I have a hard time buying that as the best option.

Even if Gano is good for this season, realistically speaking how many more years has he got?

Slye beating him out and becoming a reliable kicker for far longer (and far cheaper) sounds like a way better option to me.

Worst case scenario is the Panthers force Gano out on the field, he sucks and the Panthers become desperate for a reliable kicker, but Slye signs with the Falcons, and becomes one of the best kickers in the league. 

Knowing the Panthers, the latter is MUCH more likely

There's one thing we don't really know about Slye yet. When he misses a kick in a game (and it will happen, no one remains perfect), will he be able to come back in a clutch moment and make the next one? It's a big deal and resiliency is one of the most important traits in a kicker.

But hey, whatever floats your boat.

    • Crossing the border illegally is a $250 misdemeanor. Trump wants to collect DNA samples from people crossing the border. The DNA testing you were subjected to is completely different. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/family-immigration/dna-relationship-testing-procedures.html DNA Relationship Testing Procedures Overview - DNA Testing, Used with Some Immigrant Visa Applications Genetic testing is a useful tool for verifying a stated biological relationship when no other form of credible evidence is available in conjunction with an immigrant visa (IV) application. Commonly tested relationships that utilize DNA testing include paternity, maternity, full-siblingship, or half-siblingship. More distant relationships cannot be proven reliably using DNA testing. DNA technology is the only non-documentary method accepted for proof of a biological relationship. However, due to the expense, complexity, and logistical delays inherent in parentage testing, genetic testing should be used only if no other credible proof (documentation, photos, etc.) of the relationship exists. When genetic testing appears warranted, a Consular Officer may suggest visa applicants undergo DNA testing to establish the validity of the relationship(s). Please note that such testing is entirely voluntary; and that all costs of testing and related expenses must be borne by the petitioner and/or beneficiary and paid to the laboratory in advance. In addition, submitting to testing does not guarantee the subsequent issuance of a visa. Below, you will find the process to follow if a Consular Officer has suggested DNA testing to establish the claimed biological relationship. What Type of DNA Sample Method is Used? Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) testing is the most accurate and widely available technology to test a biological relationship. The preferred specimen collection technique for DNA testing is by buccal (cheek or mouth cavity) swab. When buccal swabs are taken, cells are collected from the inside cheek or mouth using a long cotton swab. While there are different types of DNA tests, buccal cheek swabs are used rather than blood samples because they are easier to collect, non-invasive, painless, and easier to ship. Accuracy of DNA Testing DNA testing reliability has advanced to the industry-accepted standard of 99.5 percent. The accuracy of a DNA test conducted with a cheek swab is equivalent to a test conducted using a blood test. Consular officers may only accept test results reporting a 99.5 percent or greater degree of certainty with respect to paternity/maternity as sufficient to support a biological relationship between a parent and child in visa cases. ------------------------------------------------------- This is the only legal DNA testing as it applies to immigration law in this country. 
    • Fact— the Patriots do have a great defense right now. I watched them defense pass after pass, some of them decent passes but they had great bracketing and good plays on the ball— facts— yes they haven’t played the great teams this year so it’s difficult to know how they stack up with the good teams and historical teams. fact— the Patriots have a dynasty that’s only matched or rivaled by Green Bay’s in the 60s and was in a completely different era. As far as the modern salary cap, modern rules that keep changing year after year—- they just keep finding ways to change with them and winning. fact—- we all are so sick of them winning all the time and have Patriot fatigue so anything we can say or see to minimize just how good they have been the last 20 years is an absolute must. just facts. People hate them, but they do keep winning.
    • Anyone else remember which mongoloid posted the picture above here in the past? I'm guessing this is Questie or that kid who's barely old enough to be online.
