    Re:Lloyd hopes Vikings have room for two kickers

    This is moe like what I was expecting every night. I don't know what his problem was against seattle.

    If he is consistently kicking like this in practice too, and seattle was a fluke, then I can see him getting a spot. However, if he is inconsistent in practice as well, he won't make the squad imho.

    Re:Lloyd hopes Vikings have room for two kickers

    Get real guys look at his preseason stats:

    15 KO's
    Only 2 touchbacks (both against Denver in the Dome)
    13% TBs
    Average distance 67yds
    Avg return 25 yds.
    Net after return 42yds

    NOT GOOD STATS for a specialist

    Last year with the Panthers 29% TB's but he was inconsistant and when he didn't hit the EZ he gave up big returns. NOT GOOD again.

    Longwell's KO suck from 2009:
    98 KO's
    5 TB
    5%
    avg distance 64yds
    returns 22yds
    net 42yds

    It's all about the TB's. Are the chance of TB's worth taking up a roster spot when you could keep a good ST person like Tripplet, D'Imperio, Colt, etc. to help mitigate Longwell's shorter KO's?
