    This is the second week in a row that Nate tackled the kickoff returner to save a touchdown. Any chance our defense could learn from him? :icon_twisted:

    Hell yes! Now let's draft a real kicker next season (Matt Bosher) and move him to defense! :icon_rofl:

    It is not the average kick that I worry about it is the "clutch" kick. I am sure Hollywood Leo will be here shortly to defend his boy. :lol:

    maybe he wouldn't have to tackle if noodle leg could kick a ball in the end zone

    Could be worse. Remember Wide Righty? Carney was dumped for him because he had a stronger leg and Carney was getting old. Carney is still playing.

    I don't dislike Keading. Though I can say that I thought he'd be better after an impressive rookie season (despite of that missed FG in the playoffs in 94).

    Most accurate kicker. I'd say that's pretty good. Doesn't have the strongest leg and he has missed some clutch kicks but he has made a lot of them.

    He isn't perfect though, but it could be a lot worse.

    None of that is important because he missed a couple kicks in the playoffs almost half a decade ago.

    Some people once they have got an idea in their head they cant shake it. Others feel they have to force everyone to share that idea...

    Is Keading bad? Nope... Damn good. Is LT a quiter, nope, but there are fans who to this day call him that because he was injured for the AFCC game...

    You cant change their minds...

    Yes he can tackle, but he shouldn't have to, if the special teams coverage was better. It has really gone down the past 3 weeks.

    Remember when we had to bring in a kicker because Kaeding injured himself making a tackle?

    I'd rather tell Kaeding to not tackle at all, and if the runner gets by you, let him. If he runs for a TD, then so be it. Let it be a slap in the face of the ST unit and to not let the guy get past you to the kicker.

    actually, those shorter kicks help to prevent long runbacks.... or should, if the damn special teams guys could tackle. Personally, I'd like to see us try those hard, low, bouncing kicks that seem to always give the return guy fits. Like the one the turds did and Sproles ended up getting tackled inside the ten. Those seem to work very well. There's more chance for fumbles and muffs if not fielded cleanly. Just hammer it down the center of the field and get it bouncing like crazy....

    While I understand your logic, I think a kick 5 yards deep in the end zone is more of a deterrent to a long run back than a kick to the 15

    Of course we'll never know unless Nate finds Shawne's supplier.
