    I still say he was asked to miss key kicks at the end those seasons so that we would tank for a better draft position. Good team player, take one for the team, nobody likes a kicker anyway so just miss a couple that would keep us from winning close games. I think he's a great kicker and thought he was good away from Pittsburgh before we got him.

    What a lot of fans don't know is that Kris played injured most of the year. He had a lot of problems with his "planter" foot, but, kept on kicking!! He did everything in his power to stay on the field and help his team when needed. I remember seeing him limp off the filed several times this season. My fondest memory though is watching him sing the National Anthum during the Broncs game! He stood on that sideline proud to be an American, and proud to be a TEXAN!!:)

    Yeah, I remember he injured it during the first kickoff of the Miami game, and he ended up kicking 5 FGs that game. Wow.

    Congrats to him. I'd take him over Bironas any day.

    Ha and I would take KVB over Mario. Everyone's a homer!

    Good for him, though.

    I like that we have players who never used injury as an excuse! :pirate:

    Anyone who can get Tony Ugoh from being totaly lost at the senior bowl to being a front line OLT by September is the Asst coach of the year...bare none.

    Thought the CB selections, with all do respect, were a bit wacked. Seems to be a common theme with him though dosen't it ? Everything just little bit left of center.

    So that means he sucks when he's healthy, but he's good when he's hurt!
