Kicker
 
Demke has the stronger leg of our rostered kickers...

Graham is the experienced veteran kicker including inclement weather...

The G'nats are going to release K Brandon McManus (6' 3", 201 lbs)...

McManus routinely has kickoffs exit the endzone by ten (10) yds...

I'd like the Saints to claim him and bring him in for a look...

I would hate to see Graham get the job. Demke has out played him all summer.

looks like the Titans also will have to cut someone with a decent leg...not much experience, but...

interesting that there hasn't been a single word out there about Hartley

I saw a video of Hartley somewhere. Some sort of kicker clinic and he was trying 70 yds field goals. lol

Kicker is the only position that I am aware of where college experience directly translates to NFL ability and experience. Most college kickers kick the majority of their career out doors so coming to the NFL may actually make things a little easier.

College crowds can be just as large and loud.
The defense doesn't affect a kickers accuracy.
Difference between the ball is a 1/2 a stripe and a very slight size difference.

Everything else is moot.

Now that I think about it, kicking is similar to golf.:bng:

Also Jay Feely, veteran kicker @Arizona got waived.

Not sure about his overall numbers or his age or if he's still any good or not, but at least we do know he kicked in Seattle and SF twice a year....kicking in the atmospherically perfect Dome is not the problem.... We need the type of guy who can kick in the mud and rain and dirt and in long sloppy wet grass, on the road...

Idk. I hate not trusting the kicker. It was so automatic with Morton Anderson. I didnt even sweat. Now I get all queasy when our kickers line up. I'll never feel that sense of security again. I miss it.

I am not going to lose any sleep over our Kicker situation.

This is the reason that I like playing four preseason games. I need time to get to know them.

Dimeke made all 4 kicks today, Graham 3 of 4.

I'm leaning toward Dimeke, could be our kicker of the future.
