  • A lot has been discussed about improving the OL and DBs, but I fell the greatest weakness the Seahawks have not addressed appropriately is the Kicker. Walsh was brought in even though his yips were widely documented, but the coaching staff believed in him. Unfortunately he has a decent start to the season but the yips showed up and Walsh proved he couldn’t shake them.

    Now the team has a kid (Myers) who was cut after a few games last season and has yet to prove he worthy of a game day roster spot. His competition is Janikowski who is long in the tooth and has shown that his durability to make it through a season health is a tall order. Hell, he didn’t participate in OTAs because of a hip injury.

    In my opinion the Kicker is an extremely important position. Other than the QB, the kicker is responsible to accumulate more points that anyone else on the offense. I sure hope that PC & JS have a plan, but I just don’t see it now.

    Thoughts???

  • I would be surprised if they didn't bring in a place kicker during training camp, perhaps an UDFA kid or a cut from another squad. At least, they addressed the punting position & also made an improvement to the return game (Penny).

  • I feel his pain, sometimes the site is slow in refreshing after posting so you re-post leading to a repeat of your post.

    The point is made.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons. Awesome!!!

  • Hopefully Janikowski gets healthy by training camp and never surrenders the position. I’m probably more nervous about this position than any other, especially after what happened last season.

    Never made a roster and has been retired from football for like four years. He’s an accountant now.

  • If Janikowski can’t stay healthy, then Jason Myers is probably better than the current options on the market. Another kicker might become available after the cut downs. It’s important to take this position seriously.

    Yep, its a big mistake that they havent done more to solidify the position. Its going to cost us.
