    Re: Elling or Edinger?

    What's this about a 53-yard kick he made against the Jets??? We didn't have any FG's, the final was 28-21 all scores were TD's.

    My best friend's sister played kicker for her high school team a few years ago, I say we bring her in to try out.

    They both scare the crap out of me. Neither is impressive on kickoffs, they're both inconsistent, and Edinger's stance makes me want to smack somebody. I'd probably choose Edinger, though, only because he has more experience and he might have a grudge against Chicago that could help us out.

    I hope Edinger wins it. I just can't trust Elling. Edinger is pretty consistant and has never missed and extra point unlike Elling.
    You are the second or third person that has said this.

    AARON ELLING HAS NEVER MISSED AN EXTRA POINT IN HIS CAREER!!!!!!!

    And the last two years, Elling has been more consistent than Edinger. Edinger hit something like 65% of his field goals last year, which is terrible. That's why he was cut. There are better kickers in the CFL than that. And he can't kickoff well either.

    Thanks PPE for the sig.

    If I'm not mistaken he only kicked 2 field goals last year he missed one that puts him at 50%

    He has kicked a wopping 27 attempts in his carreer. He is 70.4% accurate.

    Edinger kicked 146 attempts and is 75.3% accurate.

    I wasn't counting last year, because it wasn't fair to count his 2 attempts, especially considering they were both long ones because Morten Andersen was handling the short stuff.

    In 2003, when Elling was a rookie, he was 18-25, which is an even 72%.

    In 2003, Edinger 26-36, which is 72.2%. Last year, he kicked a fabulous 62.5%, going 15 for 24. His average has gone down every year since 2001 when he kicked 84%.

    Thanks PPE for the sig.

    The one kick Elling made last year was from 22 yards away.
    The one he managed to miss was 30-39 nothing long in kicking standards.

    Re: Elling or Edinger?

    I say we pick up CUNDIFF and throw him on the Roster. I know he is injured but unless it is not more than they are saying, he should be alright by week 5 or 6. He could be a long term option. The guy played at Drake and I think he holds the record for the longest kick in college????? 62yds?????? Little help here.

    I think it is worth the gamble. Hold on to Edinger, he has the most experience.

    Edinger

    1-19---100%
    20-29--93%
    20-39--73%
    40-49--70%
    50+----68%


    Elling

    1-19---N/A
    20-29--100%
    20-39--66%
    40-49--57%
    50+----33%


    Elling would do a great job for us, if all our field goals were within 20-29 yards.
