Scobee hit 86.7% on field goals and Forbath hit 69.2. About the only way that isn't a ton better is if you use the new common core math! lol It's amazing after all I posted you picked out the kickers? lol

He missed them in Pittsburgh, almost every kicker sucks kicking in Pittsburgh. If Scobee can turn back the clock, maybe they have finally found a kicker

I'll save you a lot of time and math on the Scooby Doo debate ...

Draft a kicker.

I think it was probably for my overall astute awareness of all things related to Saints football along with my generally charming personality and smashing good looks.

Or maybe it was one of my 2 posts earlier in this thread.

Loomis has crippled this franchise with a series of terrible FA signings, unwise extensions, and poor results in the draft. Leading the league in dead money is not a good thing. Let's hope we do better in the 2016 draft.

PFF must have a real large staff because the other side of the building didn't get the lead story of this thread...

ProFootball Focus: 5 BARGAIN FREE-AGENT SIGNINGS THAT WILL MAKE AN IMMEDIATE IMPACT

1. Nick Fairley, DT, New Orleans Saints

Nick Fairley has had the luxury of playing beside two of the most dominant defensive tackles in the NFL since being drafted in the first round of the 2011 draft. His first four years in Detroit were alongside Ndamukong Suh, while his 2015 campaign was spent in St. Louis with Dwight Stephenson Award-winner Aaron Donald.

Consistently a productive player, it’s fair to wonder why Fairley struggles to land a multi-year contract in the prime of his career (he also signed a one-year deal in 2015).

As a Ram in 2015, Fairley recorded the 11th-highest overall grade among DT/NTs. Despite this, he found his market rather dry and settled for a one-year, $3 million contract in New Orleans.

The Saints ranked 31st in the league in run defense in 2015 (129.8 yards per game allowed), and last in yards per carry allowed (4.9). Fairley seems like an ideal fit in the middle of a defense that has been gashed time and time again in a division with three other teams who run the ball well.

“Your best?!? Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home (with) the prom queen.” - Sean Connery in The Rock
