    is this guy good at the kickoffs? he sounds alright to me but does anyone else know more aboout him... Im not really up to date with the kickers...


    He has a real strong leg and is probably better at kickoffs than field goals the Packers drafted him in the 3rd round of the 1998 draft, but he couldn't beat out longwell and has had some injuries that has kept him from sticking with a few teams.

    I know one team had him on their roster to do kickoffs.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    5 of 11 from 50+ sounds good to me. Last year we shied away from using Elling over 40.
    Yes, but he is also 21-28 between the 30-39. In other words, every kick will be an adventure. On the good side, he kicks off fairly deeply.
    SKOL VIKINGS!

    I just want to see the ball land in the endzone on kickoffs not in the hands of the returner on the 20. I'm gald they made this move.

    I live two hours from washington (where Conway used to play) so i get to see all the skins games. I think that he was one of the numerous kickers the skins used a few seasons back. I think he was the best one that they used all that year.

    Conway reminds me a little of that punter we picked up. The Packers had picked him up as a mid-round draft pick, then he blew like five field goals in a preseason game. He went in the next day and was so shook up, he over kicked and injured his leg in the process.

    Longwell got the job and has never let go.

    I always liked Conway, but I always thought he's had a shattered confidence. I hope he works out for you guys in 14 of your games.
    Have you ever seen a race of turtles, and they all go the wrong way instead of towards the finish line?

    ...and here I was thinking that he reminded you of that punter because you used a third round pick on him, and then he didn't make it to the regular season on your roster. (Okay, I know sanders could still make it, but so far, he hasn't looked like a 3rd round pick should.)

    I don't think he will, but that's my opinion.

    I think its for the same reason. There is so much pressure on a kicker/punter who is taken so high in a draft that they succumb to it. Kicking is 90% mental, anyway, and if a kicker loses it, they're done.
