    I can accept the 57 yarder missed, but the other 2 should not have happened.

    Best kicker in the regular season, worst kicker in the playoffs in his career.

    IT WAS 23. I had convinced myself otherwise. There's just no way my mind will accept that Nate the Great missed a short gimme FG of TWENTY-THREE yards. Corona Doug is ALMOST right. Nate can't be trusted, but he's wrong about one thing - Nate actually has made winning/tying figgies in Playoff games.

    Kaeding did not miss a 23 yarder. He missed a 36 yarder and a 40 yarder, but those are inexcusable misses. Nate choked. But so did alot of other players on this team. The stupid penalties and boneheaded plays were as abundant as they were ridiculous. I can no longer defend this team from other fans that say we are chokers. We absolutely choked in this game, every bit as hard as '06. We had no business losing to the Jets.

    That said, congrats to the Jets for winning the game. They did what they had to do. I hope they beat the Colts next week.

    Where are you guys getting 23 from? Nate's first miss was from 36...LOS was the 19 plus 7 for the snap plus 10 for the End Zone.

    Oh well, splitting hairs at this point... :no:

    23? Not sure where the hell Nantz got that from. The 36 yarder was, as Hank Bauer put it, a "duck hook". The 40 yarder was pushed.

    hhahahahahaha wow. At least now that we know nate will blow it maybe we can just go for it on fourth or punt it next year if he's still around... 3 seconds left and need a field goal to tie in the 4th... punt it, maybe scifres can make it through the uprights...

    4th and 15 and a 25 yard field goal from there? Go for it...

    i know that but this bad? I thought maybe it was just rookie anxiety and then 3rd year anxiety etc... I figured he had missed so many in the postseason that it wasn't possible to miss anymore, expecially after a probowl season and becoming the most accurate kicker ever... How ironic though. The most accurate kicker ever is somehow the ********* kicker as well!

    As I was watching the game I could hear CoronaDoug's voice in my head...with every missed kick it got louder and louder.

    Well said man, you called it almost 100% right. Sadly for the Chargers you being correct means us losing.

    We've all KNOWN what nate brings to the playoff table. This statement you made suggests you haven't been around the bolts long.

    How long have you been a fan? A few seasons? Not questioning your loyalty, but you know, if you were frontrunning you can jump off now.

    they might as well have sent scifres on for th 40 yarder at the end. I knew kaeding would miss his third. It would have been more worth it than sendign in kaeding. hell we woulda been better off punting!

    He's already in mid-flight to a place unknown. Unknown meaning the locals don't know much about american football kickers that choke under pressure.

    Matt Stover, or Adam Viniteri for our kicker. Both are employed by the Colts right now. Both are playoff tested, and are clutch. Both are seasoned vets. That's why the Colts picked up Stover when Viniteri got hurt, but kept both on the roster for the playoff run.

    One will be available when their season is over.
