Question Kris Brown

What do you guys think of Kris Brown? He started off great and has slumped lately. He has missed some opening drive field goals that have cost us points on our first drive and it looks like we have a hard time rebounding from that. What are your guy's thoughts on him? He has a strong leg. It seems to me that he doesn't look comfortable kicking right now.
Here are his stats from this year and last by month

2003
sept 7-10 oct 1-1 nov 7-8 dec 3-3 total 18-22

2004
sept 6-6 oct 7-8 nov 3-7 dec 1-3 total 17-24

he is no stud, but he is above average. will make most of the kicks he is supposed to and occasionly hit the pressure or distance kick, but i wouldn't want a game to rest on his leg from more than 45 yards.

I would wipe out December... we'll at least give it less weight. Being in Chicago and Jax with the cold and / or wind swirling probably didn't help his ability.

Flip side - he'd better work on it as we may need that late FG next season for the push into the playoffs.

Yeah I have actually. Well..... the second half of the season anyway, they haven't looked incredibly accurate. Brown got stuffed by the Jags and missed one (or two?) against the Bears. Anything else in recent history?

Stanley looked terrible in Chicago.... but then again it was Chicago.

I dont blame Stanley for that game because the football must of felt like a block of ice...

Brown was great for the first part of the season but after, I think, the first Jags game, he has been really bad...

Ah, not too bad... just a kick or so off his normal pace.

Man, those people in Pitt hate Kris Brown. When I was there for the pre season game he was booed and yelled at. It was pretty bad. But once I heard why they were booing, I guess I understand why.

Getting your bell rung BIG TIME, and suffering from a hip injury, just might account for a couple missed FGs!

Don't count K. Brown out until he screws up when he is completely healthy. Kris plays with the heart, soul, and passion that everyone wants from any player on their team. He's more than just a kicker! He plays hard and is not afraid to make a hit when he has too.

Agreed Sandy.
How quickly everyone forgets what he went thru earlier in the season!
Instead of attacking him, give him a little compassion.
His enthusiasm for the game always shows, and he gives everything he's got.

they were boing because Brown accepted the Texans offer instead of the Steelers. Fans were boing him for missing FG's at the Ketchup Bottle in the 1st year. Come to find out, quality kickers like Viniterri were missing them just as well.

It seems like Stanley and Brown have at least one shank a game.

What are you talking about.....Anderson has tried one 50 plus yard field goal this year and he missed it.....and Anderson is a lifetime 12 for 40 at 50 plus yard field goals

Kris Brown is 1 for 3 from 50 yards plus this year and is 8 for 17 lifetime.

Default Long Snapper

...several snaps to holder have been high or off target, which greatly
affects the kicker because timing between the three is crucial, easily
contributing to a miss
