Default Is kicker a need for us?

I remember one mock had us taking a kicker in the 3rd.

I remember KB shanking a good number of kicks over the last 2 years, and failing to register a significant number of touchbacks.

And then I saw Mason Crosby from Colorado (the guy with the 60 yard leg) fall to us in the 6th round, and watched as we passed him up.

Whats the deal? Are we giving KB some more time due to his Indy game winning FG or what?

I don't know Gtex...hopefully we will pick someone up around the June 1st cuts or sometime before training camp.....and may the best man win. As it stands right now, I would like to see Kris get cut due to his declining accuracy over the past couple of seasons. I'm too lazy to check it out, but I wonder how many games we've lost in the last few years, by 3 points or less, where we would have won had he made a field goal he missed at some point in the game. Does that make any sense? I'm not asking for specific game winning drive field goals, but games in which we could have won if one was made that was missed during the 4 quarters of play.

IIRC, wasn't there an article or something about how Brown switched his kicking style a year or two ago, then switched back due to performance? I could be wrong, but he began kicking with more accuracy afterwards. I'd still hope for some sort of competition for him in camp.

Am I still allowed to post here?

I think that KB will be fine. I was just happy to see uss grab a Punter in the UDFA pool because Punter is a much larger issue IMO.

Yes, but it would never hurt when we improve any position we can.

I wouldnt mind bringing in some folks to challenge Kris. Guys like Olindo Mare and such, who were once top notch and maybe needed a change of scenary.

I used to frequent the old board and was unaware of this one taking it's place. I guess since it allowed me to post, nothing's really changed much. This board is by far the better of all the boards.

Kris Brown's accuracy from 30-39, over the last three years, has bothered me a lot. It bothered me enough to look up a few stats.

FGs from 30-39 over the past three seasons

Kris Brown 18/27 .666 (60/76 career, which is .789)
David Akers 16/20 .800
Rob Bironas 13/14 .929 (only 2 years)
Matt Bryant 15/16 .938 (no attempts in 2004)
Phil Dawson 24/29 .828
Jason Elam 22/23 .957 (115/125 for career at that range)
Jay Feely 30/34 .882

I got tired of going through kickers alphabetically at that point, but I'm pretty sure my point is made.

KB was good for shanking FGs to get the first pick in the later parts of 2005, but he is alright.

I'd rather have him than Cortez or Vandershank.

What's Paul Edinger up to these days?
