    Re: Minnesota Vikings sign former Wisconsin kicker to contract

    I dont get it. Why do people expect Longwell to kick it to the endzone when he has only 61 touchbacks in his 12 year long career. I would say he hasnt struggled this year, I would say it is quite expected of him not to reach the endzone every kickoff. The coaches should know that when they signed him, and not signed a kickoff specialist (until now) and we should know it so dont start whining about it Longwell not reaching the endzone.

    Kicks is important yes, but coverage is also important. You might even say coverage starts witha
    good kick and I dont want to change the topic of this thread to a "ST is bad covering kickoffs and punts" but I would hope for better coverage. And also a kickoff specialist takes up one rosterspot so who do we kick out from the roster who isnt needed do you think?

    Didn't we bring in Steven Hauschka to do that as well. Hmmmmmm where is he? This means nothing. We don't even know if he will make the team. I am betting he won't. So put that tongue back in and straighten those eyes. Hell I bet we bring in some RBs to try out. I guess Peterson is done then as well. Longwell is going no where. He WILL be our kicker next year.

    Waste of a roster spot.

    Does this take a roster spot?

    Typical Marr,

    He falls in love with young guys who could potentially replace old ex-packers in the blink of an eye. Marr, you know nothing about this guy! NOTHING. You won't see him play for another 8 months!

    But hey, who am I to stop you? If you want to sniff the crotch of a no-name kicker with no experience at all, go ahead, sniff it.

    The best part is I am a huge Badger fan and have seen so much more of this guy than he has. I bet he has never even seen him kick.

    Living in Wisconsin and being a huge Badger fan, this is a very good pickup.
    I love watching Taylor kick and he is a lefty at that.
    He is a good addition for next year, and gives us some distance and touchback possibilities...

    Re: Minnesota Vikings sign former Wisconsin kicker to contract

    If he's a lefty I have a feeling that he won't be doing any field goals at all, unless they plan on cutting longwell (sorry, not happening)
    The reason is switching feet requires the whole unit to flip.
    The holder will switch positions, the blocking schemes will change, now its not a huge thing, but its not something you want to be going back and forth with in a game.
