    Re:Lloyd hopes Vikings have room for two kickers

    I hope we see Lloyd the whole game. I want to see what he can do. He did not show much the first game.

    This should make Marrdro happy.....

    Childress said he wasn't pleased with the way PK Ryan Longwell kicked off on Sunday. Longwell's first kickoff -- out of a hold after the ball blew off the tee -- was fielded at the 3-yard line and returned 27 yards. The second was fielded at the 5 and returned 31 yards. "We could kick the ball off better," Childress said. Rhys Lloyd, who remains the favorite to handle kickoff duties, attempted a failed onside kick in his only chance.

    I felt like Chilly was kicking with Longwell because he wanted Longwell to show him he did not need to use two spots on a kicker.

    Ryan failed ... I imagine we will see both of them kickoff in the next game ... hopefully a couple times each.
    We need to score for that to happen

    Re:Lloyd hopes Vikings have room for two kickers

    Well we got to see a lot of this kid and all I have to say is LOL, did you see that one kick? Really?! I thought this guy had a leg Marrdro?

    Rhys vs. Seattle
    Average Receiving Point: 2.3
    Average Starting Point: 22.17
    Average Return: 19.83
    Distance: 68.5

    This game is more proof that it is the coverage team that has been inconsistent.

    Re:Lloyd hopes Vikings have room for two kickers

    I was looking forward to seeing him kick in the dome with no weather to bother him

    He still can't get it in the endzone

    I was fine with Longwell.. Now im more then happy with him after seeing how "great" one of the strongest legs in the game kicks

    Re:Lloyd hopes Vikings have room for two kickers

    I think he should get all kicking duties this last game, give him one more chance and if he doesn't WOW everyone, then dump him.
    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.

    Re:Lloyd hopes Vikings have room for two kickers

    Looking at the stat sheet so far, it sure doesn't look like Lloyd is giving the Vikings anything extra in the preseason. It's tough to imagine the team keeping two kickers at this point based on what we have seen.

    That being said, there are years of tape on this guy and he has another preseason game coming up. You never know for sure what the coaches are going to do until they do it.
    When the age of the Vikings came to a close, they must have sensed it. Probably, they gathered together one evening, slapped each other on the back and said, "Hey, good job." - Jack Handey [Deep Thoughts]

    Kickoff specialist not in the zone

    Rhys Lloyd failed to meet his expectations and as a result might not be meeting the team's expectations, either.

    Better than before. We will see if it is enough for a spot. I wouldn't.

    Re:Lloyd hopes Vikings have room for two kickers

    He definitely had a fantastic night.

    I know that Chiller has to be tempted. I guess what the coaches have seen that we haven't (in practice, drills, etc.) will have to come into play, because I think it is a close call at this point.
