    Re: Is There Help Out There For Our Kicking Game?

    yah i dont think there should be any question bout longwell's field goal kicking.
    he's off to somewhat of a rough start but lets just thank god these games dont matter and he does what's hes done his whole career and make the big ones.


    as for kickoffs i think we're stuck.
    with some of the talent we have at certain positions i just can't see them cutting a good player to bring in a kickoff specialist.
    only shot would be if they cut kluwe and brought in a guy that can punt and kickoff.
    at least that's what i think
    LET THAT WHICH DOES NOT MATTER, TRULY SLIDE

    Every team we face seems to have someone who can boot it into the endzone.

    We need one desperately, especially with our kick return coverage.

    As it is with the return yardage we give up now, we might as well damn near try an onside kick or squib kick every time

    Re: Is There Help Out There For Our Kicking Game?

    thanks for clarification:

    Longwell deffinitly needs to get the ball deeper at least to the one without line drives. And Marr your right even the best HOF tacklers cant do much with it traveling the way it is as of now
    But i do think a kicker of some potential will come available come cutdown day to 55 players and rarely do teams keep two kickers

    I agree.
    Regarding kickoff length, I just don't think we have the depth at WR, OL, DT, LB, or CB to sacrfice for an extra kicker.

    By the way, what position does Loeffler play? Is his only talent long snapper or is he at a decent bakcup center. To me that is a ridiculous waste of a roster spot. The backup center, whoever he is, needs to practice long snapping 5 hours a day.

    A few things.


    That is what I am looking for is a guy who can do both (K/P or P/FG etc) so that we only have two on the roster.

    From my original post.
    I'm looking for a mix of a guy that can either K/P (Keeping Longwell for PAT/EP's) or a K that can do KO/PAT/EP's (Keeping Kluwe as P)?
    How clutch is it to kick it into the endzone?
    Again, this is about lenght of kick and hang time on the kickoff not FG attemps.

    As for Loeffler, I think the long snapper is such a specialized position now that the Backup Center would spend to much time working on long snapping and miss out on to much of the OL practice/reps.

    Although not in direct relation to this thread, it is a interesting read on Loeffler.
