There was a game in Baltimore and the so called "Reggie Bowl" in San Fran that come to mind. He seems to have a pattern of 3 good years followed by 1 bad year (01 bad with Pitt, 02, 03, 04 good, 05 bad, 06, 07, 08 good, 09 bad ....). Not sure what's up with that, but it could mean he's back with us next season and kicking lights out again.
Anyway, you're probably right about them not going after a Kicker in the Draft but bringing in FA's instead (see Medlock tryout). I don't think Kubes would be willing to risk this season on a Rookie Kicker. JMHO!
agreed. and I don't know how many times I posted Garret Hartley, the kid from South Lake Carrol on these boards...but it was a few times. And there the guy is kicking in the big game. I think they'll stand pat. Judging by the trend, Brown has two good years due. I hope.
I really like the Georgia Punter , Butler, though. Got the blood lines and he can flat out boom the ball. but that option is a long ways down the line.
