    Guyer injured..."Mahoney doing nothing to take job from him"

    Per Rhoads. Sure sounds like Guyer is the frontrunner.

    Now it's starting to feel like he is just pushing Grant. I mean there is no one to compete with for a week and yet they are competing.

    Still kind of think that Rhoads is trying to set a fire under Mahoney's ***.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    This whole thing makes me feel really uneasy...if we are going bowling it's going to be on the back of several close games. Games no doubt decided by our kicking game.

    Shows how bad Mahoney has been in practice that this is even up for debate. With that said I think the chances of Guyer kicker are around 5%

    I love the whole staff's attitude when it comes to talking to the press. They sugar coat nothing and actually have emotion (excitement) when talking about this year's team. They're the reason I feel confident that these guys will go bowling this year.

    Will be really surprised if Guyer ends up kicking. But Mahoney must not be showing very much.

    Re: Guyer injured..."Mahoney doing nothing to take job from him"

    Mahoney will be the kicker. Hell...I don't want a guy out there trying to kick that has recently hurt his groin.

    This is all about motivation for Grant.

    Seems like it is all between the ears with Mahoney.

    Re: Guyer injured..."Mahoney doing nothing to take job from him"

    "Zach Guyer has been out with a groin strain, so he hasn’t gotten a chance to compete in the last week. But Grant Mahoney has done nothing to take that job away from him.”

    It sounds like Guyer is the "starter" for now. He said Mahoney hasn't taken it from him (Guyer).

    No doubt. Kid has a cannon for a leg but he really went off the rails at the end of last season in terms of accuracy.

    How can you possibly feel comfortable with a kicker having missed 8 of 9 FG's to end the season including two routine, back-breaking misses against MU.

    I can't think of a single kicker who had lost his confidence and performed this poorly suddenly "get it back". I'd rather have a kicker that can make the 30 and 40 yarders look routine instead of someone that can kick a 55 yarder one series and miss two in a row from 29 and 35 yards. That's Mahoney. That's what he does. If he does get the job, either by performance or injury default, we will pay for it. There's still an important role for him. Kickoffs, long FG attempts, etc.

    Sad... but I can't think of a kicker that hasn't gone off the rails as far as accuracy goes during their career. Ty Stewart might be the only one in my memory that didn't.

    If Mahoney could kick it straight (MUCH easier said than done, I know) he has NFL-caliber power in his leg.

    Agree, CPR hopefully is pretty the screws to the kid...he's got a leg lets hope he learns to kick first think later.
