    Wow.

    Kubiak was actually serious about bringing in competition this year for kicker.

    Thank the football gods.

    :cool:

    At the very least, they're admitting that Brown has issues.

    He made 94% of his field goals last year. Kris made 77%.

    Has at times been one of the best in the business.

    Great competition for Brown.

    You can take fg kicker off the draft list now.

    Two years? Brown better get his shiznitz together, or he's gone.

    I'll be pissed if we go in to 2010 with 2 kickers.

    Less than 100%? Not good enough for most of the posters on this board.

    Yep only missed one last year during the regular season... from between 40-49 yards.

    Missed 2 of 3 in post-season. 1 from 30-39 yards against GB. One from over 50 against NO.

    Dude has pretty much been money for the last couple of years.


    But, he only has a career % of 78.2

    Compared to KB's career % of 77.3

    Good signing IMO.

    Rackers is 41 of 45(91.1%) with 1 block in his last two seasons
    Brown is 50 of 65(76.9%) with 4 blocks in his last two seasons

    Schefter on his twitter feed called them both Shank-a-holics.

    I think that is a bit rough on Rackers.

    Just checked in on the Cardinals message board.

    There are those who are definitely Pro-Rackers, some who are glad to see him go because of his lack of clutch. However there is much more love for him there than for Kris Brown here.

    One thing I did notice is that he gets a decent amount of touchbacks on his kick offs too which is nice to have.

    He got that line from the E-trade baby, but the baby used "shankapottamus." Anyway, not original.
