He was also having to punt on top of kick field goals. We need to quit putting the blame on everything but the receiving offense, which needs work.

Bottom Line Question: Do you trust Hocker to be our kicker when the game is on the line?

I was praising Hocker all game and then he missed. Kicks were sraight, punt was excellent and then................................ I still like the guy, he's beating himself up for the miss, might come out better in the long run.

Well you live and die with your kicker been a bit of a revolving door here.
With kickers it's all a mental game and seems to be percentages. SP does not have a great track record not to mention a love hate relationship.

Re: Saints kicker calls regulation miss “unacceptable,” “unfortunate”

It was an invaluable lesson learned, one because we still won the game, and two because that is an experience in humility that will never be forgotten.
The real question is how much that will affect him when he is put into the same scenario, as to just how he handles it.
