Here are career stats for both kickers.

Olindo Mare: Career Stats

John Carney: Career Stats

Career stats are pretty close to equal and they both have missed some critical kicks and made some kicks. Carney just doesn't have the leg strength anymore. Bottom line is we need to get in the endzone and not worry about fieldgoals.

How true is this! If we get touchdowns, we don't need a fieldgoal kicker. Get 6 and forget it. There's no point in signing another kicker, we've got what we've got. Touchdowns are the answer.

Re: John Carney is available

I don't give two sh**s about touchbacks. What a worthless stat. I'd rather see us go 23/25 on field goals, instead of 7/13. Those are actual points, not just mere starting field position. Mare is terrible. Drew can tell me not to boo, but I'm a real fan who cares about how this team does, and when I see a turd who only has one job (i.e. kick the damn ball) and he can't do it better than 54% of the time, then I'll boo as much as I please. We need to let this clown go (along with Jason David and Mark Simoneau).

I say sign him for field goals and let Mare kick off and by the way I think we should on side kick every kick off the rest of the season and use the shotgun, no huddle also.

If we're going to lose lets at least make it exciting and score some points, I can watch the 49ers if I want to see a team that can't score and has no potential at all.
