He has missed quite a few FG s this year already for Seattle

There was a lot of hand wringing when we didnt over pay to keep him despite last year being a career year.  Meanwhile Sam Ficken has come in and done a good job to this point

Is anybody still missing Myers?

Most here likely wouldn't have gotten too worked up over letting Myers go if the team didn't take 6 months before finally doing anything slightly competent at the position.  It was a series of one totally inept kicker after another, and never once bothered to have any degree of competition the entire time.  No one was particularly surprised by that level of awfulness from Maccagnan, but months of 3 different miserable failures at the position was hardly a great first impression for Douglas either.

I actually was never that worked up about paying Myers, considering he's actually had a pretty mediocre career before last season, and even finished the season rather poorly, but the team really could not have done a more terrible job at refilling the position than they did.

Never understood everyone being so insanely upset they didn’t resign Myers and especially not resigning Andre Roberts.  Both have proven this year to be JAGs.

The kicking game cost us one game.  As long as Ficken is decent I dont sweat not giving a big contract to a guy who made one Pro Bowl.  Hes not Morten Anderson.

Sure did.  We all wish we were 2-3 going into the Pats game and not 1-4.

Yes but that was an important game even if we run the table second half which we will Vedvik being a horror show could be the difference between 9-7 playoffs and 8-8 no playoffs

The same people who thought the Jets should re-sign Myers for $4-5 million a year are the same people who thought we should re-sign Andre Roberts for the same, enjoy black coffee over a standing spoons worth of cream and sugar, choose Mike & Ike’s over peanut M&M’s, fancy a ‘root beer’ over an ice cold Coke or Pepsi, etc.

Basically the dregs of society who should be exterminated upon first contact.

The issue wasn’t not re-signing Myers. The issue was not bringing in a second kicker to compete with Catanzaro and Bertolet who were struggling throughout camp. The mistake was obviously compounded by handing the job over to Vedvik who was also terrible. 

Unlike the QB position there are more than 32 people in the US that can kick adequately in the NFL. There is no sense in allocating resources to that position unless the guy is truly special.

The cowboys kicker Maher is a beast! 62 last week and 62 & 63 yard fgs first half tonight.

Heading into this game his field goal percentage was 63 percent.

7 for 11 with 2 misses over 50 prior to tonight isn't bad when you consider the small sample size and that he can seemingly hit 60 yard fgs with some consistency. He's made all his extra points 18 of 18 prior to tonight also.

Agree a non-retarded GM would have signed a Nugent or Ficken last June or July

What are Meyers numbers?

What are all of our kickers numbers combined?

 

What's the context?

 

Myers: 8 FGs 11 Attempts    19 for 20 xpts

Ficken: 2 FGs 3 Attempts  5 for 5 xpts

I think most fans were pissed that a stable kicker was not brought in before the season started.

We brought in a K who did a good job here two years ago, kicked FGs at over 83%, didnt miss one over 50 yards and was 100% on XTR pts.  

The problem was when he struggled in camp there needed to be a backup plan.  I think they wrongly assumed he would straighten out his issues. 

Which became more of a problem when Catanzaro not only was struggling but he retired.

Ficken’s one miss was a 55 yarder against the wind. His kickoffs have been great. Overall he’s done a nice job so far.

Look it’s not that difficult to get a JAG kicker 

 

And I mean JAG in a good way a JAG is 10,000x better than that POS Vedvik

didn't they try to get catanzaro?  he decided to retire but wasn't that after the jets signed him?  i agree they didn't do enough but it's not like they stood by and watched.  that varvik guy was supposed to be better than he actually turned out.  let's not forget that the only game a kicker mattered so far is game 1 and the dallas game.

Is that XP conversion rate accurate or a typo? He’s missed 11 XP’s???

It’s just as easy to miss on how hard it can be to find a K.  Easy to kick in camp and fold with the game on the line during actual games.  Oh and Nugent isn’t an answer

The Vikings cut Vedvik after trading for him that’s as big a red flag as it gets

And he hit a ton of kicks for Baltimore 

Almost every K was cut before, even young Ks with history who were drafted.  No red flag.  Especially when you brought up Nugent, how times was he cut?
