    Again, he has the leg, but needs to work on accuracy! I guess you know more than the coaches do about our kicker?

    OK smartass I think the coaches ARE the ones who
    signed Dan Orner and also had as good of chance
    going for it on forth down as making anything over
    40 yards 50-50 to be exact. He has the leg? there
    are alot of people that can kick a football 50 yards
    it just doesn't count unless it goes through the uprights. I wonder are you Elling? why would you
    defend the weakest link on the team? 50% over
    40 yards that is the worst by any Viking kicker ever.

    Why not? how much harder is it to kick in the NFL as opposed to College? Oh wait, he must have to get adjusted to kicking in new stadiums...stressful work. Kicking is kicking and he is horrible. The pussy cant even get it in past the 10 on kick offs.

    i think that is the problem, we say he mat be better at kicking field goals this year, and even so his kickoffs are a big problem also, getting to the ten is not what i would call good position for the team to have the ball and space to run. If he is not solid in the preseason, really solid, we need to change before the season, i dont want him to cost us any more games

    How was Elling last preseason? Anybody see the games?
    Faster than a speeding Grady Jackson! More powerful than a Nick Barnett! Able to leap Ahmad Carroll in a single bound! Look! Up in the sky! It s a bird! It s a plane! It s Jermaine Wiggins!

    Kicking is 99.99999% mental. Doesn't matter how strong you are and often your mechanics are a given. If you lose your confidence, or never get it in the first place, you're kicking game is in serious jeopardy.
