    Not liking this move, I think I would have given Conway a week to try and find out if he could cut it!!

    Morten is not going to be able to kick-off deep and Conway's 3 & 4 th kickoff's last week were around the 3 yard line.

    He might have been able to kick over 40 yards cause I do not think Morten can anymore!
    The Vikes are saying that Andersen will handle the kickoff duties up until the bye week. During that time the ST coaches will work with Travis Dorsch and then bring him into the full roster.
    Given the probs we had with kickoffs last year, then having more of the same for another couple of weeks is bearable. The main question against Morten is distance but he's solid on the shorter FG's - which has been a problem in recent times
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    You know Lovie Bear your name doesn't do much to maintain your masculine gender. Unless you prefer the feminine side, if I were you, I'd be careful about accusing this entire site of being gay.

    Why cut Conway? Keep two kickers, not hard

    When Gary Anderson used to kick off short the offenses never started past their 30. He used to pick an exact spot to place the ball, and everyone knew where to run. He never overkicked his coverage. Granted there's not a lot of touchbacks, but we won't have any long runbacks either.

    To have 2 kickers on the roster we have to cut somebody. If the game is on the line and we need a 47 yarder to win can Morten hit from that distance?
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    I just don't know. I think we will have the same problem we had last year only for a different reason. Last year we didn't attempt anything over 40 yards because Tice had no confidence in Elling this year it will be because Anderson can't kick it that far.

    So when it is 4th and 8 and we are on the 25yd line what do we do.

    1. Go for it and if we don't pick it up it gives the other team a big confidence boost. #-o

    2. Punt the ball and maybe back them up 10 to 15yds. ukeright:

    Because the Viks will have to be inside the red zone before we are in field goal range. That sucks.

    this is the weakest part of the team, I just hope we score a ton of tds and that way we don't have to worry about it. :cheers:

    This is a great move! Very reliable kicker. Hit 5 of 8 from 40-49 last year. Legend. As good as Gary Anderson was.

    Thanks SKOL. Been a Viking fan for 35 years. Not an easy ride!
    I have to say though that I feel good about this year, this team, and these coaches. Still miss CC and Smith though.
