Re: Hocker

SP won't put up w a kicker that he cant trust - that's why he got rid of Hartley. Question is... who else is available out there?

The thing I'm concerned about is the team finally looks to have some momentum, which Hocker will most likely kill if given one more chance.

Re: Hocker

Still don't understand why we didn't keep the Florida St Kid (Hopkins); he's banging it for the Redskins now which makes the burn doubly poignant...

I'd bring in Mort Andersen and have him tell Payton who the best kicker is; I mean, who would no better than the Best Placekicker of All-Time...

Problem is Mort probably would tell Payton add McMahon to the impending dumpster fire at the end of the season and Coach seems incapable of firing his Special Teams Coach...

We were awful in the Tampa game, but if he makes those two kicks then we are kicking a FG at the end of the game, not throwing desperation passes.
He got saved in the Dallas game by a coin toss and bad defending

most telling for me is 5 misses in the climate-controlled, windless, turf field 'dome, at home.

Of course all kickers miss from time to time, but this guy is just bringing us down.

I thought from the start Hopkins should have got the job, he didn't miss all training camp!
Look, it's not like he missed a 25 yarder. The guy missed 2 50 yard field goals. He missed them both just a little wide but had the leg for 10 more yards. For the past 5 years we would not of even considered kicking that far. With some tweeking you guys will be loving him by the end of the season.

this isn't preseason boss, dude is supposed to have his **** together now. Not ****ing 16 weeks later.

He also missed a game winner of less than 40 and I think one in the 40's against the falcons. 67% is not going to cut it
