Why did we activate Kaeding??? He's not healthy, and Brown is still on the roster.

    Brown was actually listed as the 3rd QUARTERBACK against Denver. I guess if Kaeding got hurt more. But did you see his kickoffs against Denver, UGH. I'll give him a pass on the 52 yarder, it was dead on, just a foot or two short. But he clearly is still hurt.

    Either Punt on 4th down, or just go for it. No FG's.

    I have zero confidence in Nate. We need to just IR him and go with Brown the rest of the season.

    The point will come where Nate Kaeding costs us another game.

    IR Nate FFS. It's not like we're going to need him. He cannot make a clutch kick end of. Give Brown the job.

    when he lined up for the 52 yarder our whole section was saying WTF? We knew with his injury he did not have the leg. When he lined up for the second one evryone was pissed. Good thing for us Norv changed his mind and we pinned them on their five.

    We should either sit Nate Kaeding until he is healthy, or have him do nothing but kick extra points and have Kris Brown handle all the field goals & kickoffs. If we're going to keep Brown on the roster for "insurance", we should use him.

    It reminds me of last season when we kept Michael Bennett on the roster all season, but rarely used him no matter how bad LT struggled.

    Nate is still not happening and if Brown is on the roster why activate him? I was wondering if it was going to be another miss if he tried the 53 yarder but at least Norv decided to go with the punt. I hope in the future we only go for field goals inside the 30, otherwise a pin inside the 5 should be a practiced move so we can get a safety. The team aside from Nates' record, shouldn't be relying on a kicker to win or save a game.

    Well, they CUT Brown to put V-Jack on the roster, so hopefully he still is available, because I have lost faith in Nate in the Regular season. Already lost faith in him in the playoffs.
