So WTF is up with kicking

i walk in to my house to catch a glimpse of the saints game just in time to watch porter pick a ball and take it to the house.....the 2 point conversion was no good which didnt bother me cuz the game was in the bag.....but then the following kickoff goes out of bounds....then i noticed something else

Extra Points (Made-Attempted) 4 - 6
Kicking (Made-Attempted) 4 - 5

we went 8-11 kicking the ball through the uprights......how the **** does that happen? why is our kicking game struggling like this

one thing i noticed on a replay of drews touchdown run was the bad snap and bad hold.....but the ball got down in time and the kick was way off the mark......was it a combination of everything? what happened on the other 2 missed attempts?

It may be time to give Carney a Wal Mart employment application...

Re: So WTF is up with kicking

50 yards outdoors is a bit much for Carney. The missed extra point was a nice bobble job by Brunell who had difficulty with a high snap. The timing was just all the way off on that. That kickoff late in the game, no excuse for that!

I think Hartley may be getting a lot of reps in practice this week. I would not be surprised to see him activated for the Falcons game.

Re: So WTF is up with kicking

when you score 50 a game, it probably does not matter much.
