Let's talk about what REALLY matters...the kicker!

We currently only have Carson Wiggs on the roster.

Do you think they will draft a kicker with one of our 26 7th round draft picks to compete, or bring in a vet? Does Hauschka come back?

Now that the Tanzania crisis has been averted, I find this to be the current worry! 8)

There, I spun it...you discuss it.

I didn't even realize Hauschka was gone. I'm so pumped about this next season that the offseason has been killing me and I've been trying to keep my mind occupied with other stuff on my spare time so I don't go nuts waiting.

We'll draft two kickers and bring back a vet and they will all comPete.

I say lets just do without one. I hate kickers.

Let Ryan kickoff. Go for it on 4th down and go for 2.

I kind of like the idea of bringing Haushka back in, but it wouldn't surprise me if they draft a kicker late.

Ah, hell, let's just trade up into the first round and grab one there. Gotta make sure we get the one we want, right? ;)

We could probably go for two after every TD, and just let Ryan free kick on kick-offs.

An injury, right?

Tweaked his calf on the CRAPPY FedEx Field grass. I don't think it was a serious injury. But he's also a free agent right now.

You can probably get the best kicker in the NCAA last year in the 6th round. I'm not really worried about it too much.

Even before Haushka got hurt, Pete was reluctant to kick field goals of more than 50.

With our offense and defense now 50 yds field goals should be few and far between. If your making a playoff run you want a Vet thats proven under pressure and is consistent 45 yds in. Longwell probably is still available if Haushka isn't ready also. Draft a kid and see if he has the balls to make plays when its crunch time, but don't do it for the sake of salary, there isn't that much difference between kickers salarys unless your in Oakland.

Maybe a flyer on Jason Hanson to play back here and actually make a playoff appearence.

The trouble with new kickers is that they are used to kicking off a kicking tee, NFL doesn't use one for feild goals and extra points, take away that little difference and it messes with kickers ability to get loft unless they are able to adjust, why I value a proven veteran unless we get a kid that can both handle the differences as well as the pressure.

I believe college's stopped using tee's on field goals and extra points in 1989.

Just to add to the topic, here's an article on people who are slower, had fewer reps at 225 and couldn't jump as high as...a kicker :P

If so my mistake, that rule slipped past me, was sure I heard a discussion not long ago about it by Chuck Nelson on KJR, might have been when he was playing though also.

I believe they use a different size tee on kickoffs. That may be what you heard.

Not to derail this into to much of a draft thread, but according to Tony Pauline Seattle privately worked out Oklahoma State Kicker/Punter (double whammy) Quinn Sharp.

Quote:
- Versatile punter/kicker Quinn Sharp of Oklahoma State had coaches from the Seattle Seahawks and Miami Dolphins privately work him out.
