Seahawks will work out free agent kickers Ryan Longwell and Neil Rackers this week.
Longwell, 38, has generated zero interest since being released by the Vikings in May after he made 22-of-28 attempts in 2011. Rackers, 36, lost the Redskins training camp battle to Billy Cundiff this season and hasn't played in 2012. Other kickers are expected to join the two in Seattle. Steven Hauschka is dealing with a calf injury.

That's his name. I was hoping Holmgren stuck with him instead of Olindo Mare.

Whoever they sign, it should work out to be a million dollar bonus IF they end up in a game winning field goal situation and they're successful. That will make sure they make a 48 yarder with the game on the line. Otherwise, what benefit is it to them? They have no emotional ties to the team like Hauschka does, who has been with the team through the long hall.

Looks like they want a guy with experience, which I guess is good. No to Longwell though. Based on what I saw from him his last two seasons, I think Chad Pennington can throw the ball further than Longwell can kick it.

Anyone who is out there right now is out there cause they are inaccurate. If they were accurate they would be employed right now.

Pat Kirwin basically had a good take on it today. He says bring in a few guys and work em out. Whoever has the strongest leg you keep and use him for kickoffs and long field goals, saving houshka for close ones.

Longwell is accurate, Rackers has a leg and a half.

Would be fine with either guy really

I hate kickers. Let's go for two and let Ryan kickoff. We dont need field goals.

I really hope that if we win next week, the winning points are scored by one of the guys that's been on the team since day 1 and not some last minute free agent pickup.

Not necessarily. Could simply mean they plan on bringing a second kicker in case it doesn't heal as expected or if he re-injures it during the game.

Read today that Harbaugh is going to keep both Cundif and Akers. Does he really think he's gaming us?

Bring back Carson Wiggs. Thought he looked decent in Pre-season.

Rackers has missed 5 of 14 attempts in the playoffs...no thanks
Longwell has missed 5 of 23 attempts in the playoffs..a much better statistic. He can't kick them from quite as far but I would say his leg would be similar to Hausch..He's only two years removed from going 17 of 18 in the regular season and 3 years removed from 26 out of 28..

I wish Chicago hadn't nabbed Mare due to Gould's injury.

I wonder if Ryan can hit FGs under 30 yards. He was actually quite serviceable on kickoffs in the Redskin game.

Of course, we'd need a new holder ... Flynn! Then, suddenly, we have a truly awesome fake FG set up. That alone would probably keep the Falcons from overloading the line against an inexperienced kicker.

And for anything over 30 yards, just GO FOR IT on 4th down.

...

I don't understand why I've never been hired as a head coach.
