Re: Saints sign Kai Forbath to replace Hocker

I feel bad for the kid too. Too bad he couldn't be our future at kicker. Oh well. Here we go again.

haha, was going to add that in, but didnt...

I have no qualms about a shorter leg. We shouldn't be hitting too many from past 50, in any case. O has a job to do as well.

He looks soo ~ much older than Hocker. Perhaps pain has aged and toughed him. I hope so

I do. Field goals happen when your O, couldn't make it to the end zone. Same thing with the punting game. This explicitly means your O isn't as good. Some years it wasn't so critical for us. This year, IT IS.

Thank God we have Jeff Ireland, I could see Loomis drafting a kicker in the first round next season...because that's what's been wrong with the team all this time...

Usually great players aren't very good teachers or coaches.

Re: Saints sign Kai Forbath to replace Hocker

One of Payton resonsibities as a coach is to keep the better player or players. Hopkins clearly out kicked Hocker in competition. Payton gets to liking people to much(just like the good ole' boys on D) and abuses his power as a head coach. One day that abuse will bite him in the a$$. Making the best decisions for the team should come first.

GOOD.
I dont want a guy who hits the longshot lottery sometimes.
I want a guy who nails the 40 yarder every time.
and doesnt miss extra points or game winning chip shots.
