I'd write a long thoughtful post about this......except he's a kicker. We're only going to REALLY care if he misses FG's that cost us games.
Of course, with our offense, that probably won't be an issue....
Well put Caine. I will say that I have no strong feelings on this one way or the other. Longwell was accurate and clutch, but he has slipped. His touchback percentage we poor, and coupled with our poor special teams play at times, cost us field position.
Guess Spielman is putting his stamp on this team. Will see what happens as the season progesses.
At least we didn't draft this kicker as high as the Jets drafted Nugent years ago.
If they hadn't taken him, we would have taken him 2 picks later. We were going to grab him, but the Jets moved up to get him. Because of it we took Marcus Johnson Instead to complete the trifecta of Williamson, James & Johnson.
