I hope so! Can't confirm, but I hope someone is in camp kicking field goals - and making them. Mare makes you learn how to be grateful for 3's. Cowgirls are still undefeated because of a few good 3's.

Re: Is it true?!?!?

lol and this is the position that needs to be replaced above all else

is this head coach for real?????
or is he smoking crack or maybe he is high on meth

I'm not real sure but I think this team can use linemen long before a kicker

What a joke now I think I’m starting to see where the problem with this team is

Best Foot Forward

Embattled Saints kicker Olindo Mare on Monday accepted responsibility for two missed field goals Sunday that might have been the difference between victory and defeat.
But with immediate uncertainty regarding Mare's groin injury and his erratic play, the Saints will audition at least three more kickers today. League sources indicated Mike Vanderjagt, the most accurate kicker in National Football League history and someone whom the Saints worked out in March, is among those scheduled to work, as is former Dallas and Tampa Bay kicker Martin Gramatica. The agent for former Saints kicker Billy Cundiff confirmed Cundiff's scheduled workout.
Saints Coach Sean Payton said the team plans to work out a group of players today, some for practice squad help. He would not specify which positions.

Re: Is it true?!?!?

well if they look at several positions then I will retract that statement
but if all we are looking at is a kicker then we have bigger problems
I will admit he missed the kicks but I did see the panthers getting some good penetration at the line during the kicks and that concerns me more then the missed kicks

Re: Is it true?!?!?

Hopefully they're looking at linebacker too. I was a Mare backer but alas....I was wrong. We need someone who we can count on. With the problems this offense is having scoring touchdowns we need a kicker we can count on. I'm all for looking for line help, but geez we spent at least 2 draft picks this year on offensive linemen. Maybe they aren't working out but if you want guaranteed success on the offensive line you'd better be looking at trades, not draft picks. Draft picks are to iffy. same goes for the defensive line. I agree we need help on both but I think (IMHO) it's where you look for that help.

Sometimes it's better to keep your mouth shut and be thought an idiot, than to open it and remove all doubt!!!!!
