    Dave Rayner 14 games last year with Colts??

    61.5 yard kick off average(31/2 yard line-in dome) one miss FG from over 50 yards. 82 kick-offs with one touch back.

    Appears he was kick off specialist. He and Cundiff will battle.

    good info.

    I said there would be competition.

    It won't end with this guy either.

    Let the best kicker WIN!

    New England didn't know what they were doing when they signed Grammatica.....

    Wouldn't that be the 8.5 yard line? Don't they KO from the 30?

    Yea...8 1/2 yard line in a dome. I feel better.

    82 kickoffs...one touchback....at least half of them in a dome?

    I would love to know what kickers you think Thompson should of signed. I think the only thing he really can do with the lack of market for kickers is sign a few young kickers to compete for a job. I don't know if you expect him to create a top notch kicker out of pudding or what but I think he is doing what he can do with what is available.

    I am sure he has no clue who is out there... Good point. He is a GM in the NFL and he knows less than the fans... Makes sense to me!

    Grammatica is as much of a risk if not more than these two kickers. The last season he played he was a 60% field goal kicker. He is also much older than the others and Ted Thompson has shown that he prefers the younger players, and i dont blame him for that.

    I don't have a problem trying out/going with a rookie or an unknown, I just don't want to go with a kicker who I know is crap.

    *caugh-caugh* Cun*-diff.

    Ahh, he (Cundiff) can come to camp. But he better not be in green and gold on opening day. :evil:

    No matter how good he looks in-camp...Crap is crap. IT IS WHAT IT IS.

    Nice job TT bring in a big leg. Fine.

    yeah, some people here think they know everything. I like to give management (In all sports) the benefit of the doubt.

    Chamuko shouldnt though, cuz he has a friend who is TTs secretary or something, so he gets a pass for sure.
