Bummed that Hocker missed that FG last night. I really appreciate that Kai has been a reliable kicker for us, but his kickoffs drive me crazy.


I'm worried that Gruden will go with Kai on the basis of that miss. :( I haven't seen them in camp, but from the games I am 100% for Hocker.

I kind of hoped that Hocker would either make the squad or at least make Forbath find a way to get more air time on his kickoffs

I like having a reliable FG kicker and Forbath has shown that ... HOWEVER ... until last night I felt sure that Hocker would be the kicker

UPDATE - Hocker has been cut

I have no worries about Forbath's reliability kicking FG's and EP's... but I guess we get to look forward to another year of fun opposing kick-off returns and out of bounds KO's.

I like his reliability but the KO's have to get better or he will not be here

I like Forbath but I think that he will not be here long if his KO's don't get better ...

I would not be surprised to see Hocker stay on the practice squad as 'insurance'

More likely that we are dealing with another David Akers...#-o ... but, it is what it is...

Sucks...I don't doubt Forbath's ability on making FG's...but I hate having to sit through another year of our kicker kicking the ball to the ten on a kick off.

Since no one replied to my wishful thread to pick up Matt Prater I removed it, maybe because no sources, idk. I think we should pick him up and he can kick it into the end zone that could help the special teams deficiency

We haven't had a kicker since Loehmiller and its time we invested in a good one. I keep reminding myself that the offense scores points but kickers win the game. You have an 'Nth' round kicker, you'll have a loosing record.
When was the last time we had a kicker good enough to make commercials?

I saw it. Then I checked on Hocker. I'd like to have him and I think he's available. Henery just crashed and burned in Detroit.

Yeah I was about to comment Detroit has more of a need for Prater. That's unfortunate, I'd rather have a better kicker and one that can kick it into the end zone.

Then let's re-sign the Groza award winner we drafted. We were POOCHING last night. We gave up 100 yards in field position on kickoffs and another 100 from the resulting chain reaction.
