    We MUST find a kicking game!

    I really like the look of this team right now going forward. Yes, we need to quit turning the ball over, and cut down on the penalties, but I think those can be corrected.

    However, I shudder to even think how many games our kicking game might cost us once again this year?

    Seriously, we MUST find someone that can hit a FG under 50 yds. Mahoney always seems to hit the 50+ yarders, but nothing else. And Guyer doesn't look any better. Those FG's weren't even close at all.... and it could have EASILY cost us the game yesterday.

    I don't care how strong a leg some of these kids have, let's just find someone with a weaker leg that never missses from 40 and in please.

    I agree. They always say when you have 2 quarterbacks you don't REALLY have 1 quarterback...This is even more true with kickers. if this doesn't get figured out it will cost us a couple games

    I think we can work the 2 kickers system, they just have to make it when they get the call, that game should not have gone to OT, 2 missed FG and 2 fumbles in the Red Zone. This can't happen.....

    thats no joke. i'd take an automatic under 40 guy any day of the week over a strong leg.

    Our kick and punt coverage has been good so far. Kick and punt return has been good. We have one of the best punters in the country, and I'm not sure DZ isn't one of the better long snappers.

    Not really fair to be overly critical of Guyer for missing one FG, especially given that was his first in that situation. And he made all the PAT's.

    Re: We MUST find a kicking game!

    I have no problem with the 2 kicker system.

    The problem for us is that our close range guy doesn't seem very accurate.

    I think we lose a game due to kicking woes this year.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: We MUST find a kicking game!

    Hopefully that kid from Ankeny can help correct this problem for next season. I think our best shot this season is to have Guyer kick PAT's and Mahoney do the rest
