  • Kickers Please...

    We all know that Nate Keading now officially sucks, and he needs to be replaced. Who are the best kickers in the draft who maybe can actually handle pressure??? That would be new here. But where are most of the kickers supposed to go, and where are most of the strong points for the Kickers, (strong leg/good accuracy?)

        Hunter Lawrence from Texas.

        If y'all don't draft/sign him, I wouldn't mind if the Texans or Cowboys gave him a shot.

          Yah, i've heard good things about him, and i liked the clutch kick against neb. The only thing i've heard about him is that he doesn't really have a big leg. Is that true, or is it just rumor. And also, where is he supposed to go?

            Yeah, they pretty much only used him inside of 50 yards most of the time.

            I forgot about that.

            He's money inside of 50 though.10-11 his Sr. year and 4-5 his Jr. year on kicks 40 yards or longer I believe.

            I doubt that he will get drafted, but I could definitely see a team picking him up UDFA.

              As the official SWDC special teams pundit, I must say that this year's kicker class is tepid to say the least. The best you'll find in 2010 is Leigh Tiffin and Brett Swenson, two kickers who will find themselves in the 5th-6th round range. Next year will sport both Kai Forbath and Thomas Weber, amazing kickers.

              To be honest, I'm appalled by the Chargers' fans sudden outrage in regards to Kaeding. He has been automatic his entire career, just because he was terrible in a playoff game is grounds for excommunication? Pressure situations can get to a kicker, not everyone can be Adam Vinatieri, we're so sorry as a position that we're all not that clutch. A big **** you to you sir.

                While I'd like to be in Kaeding's corner, what separates the great kickers is ability in the clutch. And to miss 2 from within 40 yards is inexcusable, I wouldn't get rid of him but he deserves the criticism.

                  Well, this is how fans treat Kickers. Quiet afterthought when they are on the top of their game, but there's no end to the slurring when they're iffy.

                  I can tell you Packer fans have about half or less the confidence in Mason Crosby after this year than they did the year prior. And this being after a 2007 season where he lead the league in points and presumably got robbed for Kicker accolades.

                  ...it's just what you get with 'Specialists', no matter what the sport. You can't do the one job you've got, then you're gonna be slurred something fierce.

                    Brett Swanson = a lock for the Cowboys or Chargers in the 2nd.

                      As you are Mr. Special Teams here at SWDC, how do you feel about Matt Bosher from Miami? (He'll be a senior next year.)

                        I believe you mean multiple playoff games.

                            Yah, i think your missing the point. I think this is his 4th strait year he's blown a playoff game for us missing pretty easy kicks. I'm sorry, but there's alot of people that can make a crapload of FG's and are all good and well when they dont matter, but the good ones can step up in the clutch and perform, and Keading cant deliver. He's had his job for 4 or 5 strait years, and he has consistantly proven that he cannot handle pressure, and i think that that is grounds to fire him, but i might want to wait until next year to get a guy like Webber, or the UCLA dude.
