    What do you guys think of this guy? The boy is from MS like Favre. I really think this would be our best option. I have a gut feeling that he's the one we should be going for. :wink:

    I was just posting about him in another topic....short delivery, strong leg,relaxed the only problem is the ability to kick under pressure, but that will come in time....definitely a FA rookie pickup...

    Edinger is the best bad whether kicker in the market right now... Hopefully we'd make a run at him.

    I just have a bad feeling about Edinger, I would rather have had Longwell! Check out Gostkowski's stats! I see him as the next Vinatieri. Good Good Vibe!

    Yeah I see he holds some records there.. I remember watching that game. Never thought about the kicker but he does look like a great backup plan at least now that Longwell and Vinetari are off the market..

    I'd rather have someone kick with their eyes open. I don't want to be screaming at the screen "turn around , idiot, they're about to snap the ball!", eveytime he lines up for a field goal

    I don't get why people seem to think that Edinger turned good somehow. He is mediocre at best. I think we would be better off with a rookie kicker.

    Of course, you haven't. He's a kicker!

    Edinger, or draft a kicker...

    I'm drafting. Seems TT is going that direction...

    I think TT feels this team has plenty of time to take on a rookie kicker...Just a feeling I got when VIN didn't sign, and we didn't go hard enought for Vandy...Just a guess.

    Is Mare out there? Thought I heard he might be.

    Are you for Edinger?

    Man, that guy missed a truck load of kicks last season. No Thanks.

    If your not...well...What's left to do. Maybe the kicker named in this post...Draft...whatnot.
