They may have a cheerleader handler spot open, not that Zooey would approve...

Re: Kicker

Kicker is a huge position, especially in close games were every point counts. Brees marching us down the field with no time left for a FG attempt to win the game and secure a higher playoff spot? No question how important a kicker can be.
Remember guys, without a clutch kicker (prior to the mental breakdown) we still don't have a superbowl, again NO question how important.

Shayne Graham or Derek Dimke?

Re: Kicker

I could justify either one... though I never thought I would say this (even when I was young) I lean towards youth... the Psychic boost of him making the team after bouncing around for the past couple of years would be big... hopefully the kind of thing that would keep him around for a while...

But I said exactly the same thing with Hartley... who when he started with us... I was thrilled about...

Re: Kicker

If I'm the one evaluating I go with Dimke. He was 2/3 (I count the miss because kickers need to kick cold bore) and at the least equal to Graham this preseason. When it's equal you go with youth. If you don't count the miss he is 100% for the preseason. Graham missed 1 XP this preseason. They both have a cold bore miss.

Re: Kicker

I'd go with Dimke because of youth. Graham has been around half the league and there is a reason for that.

Re: Kicker

It doesnt matter who we go with. As soon as he misses, we're gonna start b**ching about how we should have went with the other guy! lol

I was just thinking that with whomever we choose, hopefully we keep him the whole year
