Oh Kai, here we go... Can't get.much worse that's for sure. And maybe w omg on st through the endzone isn't the best ko. High and barely in, daring them to run.. and getting shut down before the twenty is even better


I'd agree with that ckRG, except, then you're hoping the player gets tackled

I think the reason Danny and Mike like the ball into the end zone is to ensure there is no run back and not HOPE the player is tackled inside the 20

IF a kicker can kick it high and deep (end zone to the 5) it only follows that he can kick it lower and through the end zone

good news/bad news - he'll get to stay if he makes all of his FGs even if he is not great on kickoffs
he will not be here if he cannot make the deep kickoff AND he misses FGs inside the 50
The Redskins need to change to improve - we need a better GM and we need to do a better job of who we bring in to coach and play here - players and coaches need to be held accountable when they do not do their jobs well

I don't really understand the touchback thing. Kicking the ball through the uprights under pressure while other guys are trying to block it - I understand why you might not make that kick every time. But shouldn't the ability to get a running start from the 35 yard line and kick the ball out of the endzone be sort of like the bare minimum requirement for an NFL kicker?

^^ you'd think ... and yet ... :?

you'd think that if the guy can kick long field goals consistently AND under pressure he'd be able to kick the ball into the end zone off a tee

and yet ... :lol:

it would be great if Kai can come in here and be here for years - we have not had a good kicker since forever

It must be that guys are either accurate or powerful. The accurate&powerful kicker must be like Sasquatch.

No. The last truly consistant kicker in Washington was Chip Lohmiller.

John Hall was great when healthy, but always had groin problems when in DC. A massive hitter, too, with a LB-sized body.

Sasquatch? I think there have been some sightings at Oakland Raider games wearing an #11 on his back.

Heck, yeah. It's fun when your kicker is trying to lay someone out.

In Low Driller's best year as a 'Skin he hit 75% and was 9 of 15 between 30 to 39 yards.

Pole Killer did have a 5 year stretch between 72% and 75% so that is consistency.
