    Statistically yeah, but i'd have to go back and look at the pressure kicks, situations etc...i just don't think he's kicking very confidently anymore.

    Some of us don't believe it because he missed 2 out of 28 kicks last year and was one of the NFL's top 10 kickers.

    Well, you're entitled to your opinion but I don't understand why. It's the preseason. Guy went 26/28 last year. IMO, him and Hekker(and Quinn) are the last guys we should be worrying about.

    I felt the same last year. He has accuracy issues.

    Wilkins I get ya, but Brown?

    All he proved that without the twelve man he was an overpaid guy who missed way more chip shots than a guy getting paid what he did should. IMO he didn't prove anything in a Rams Jersey.

    He built a lot of confidence with me last year.

    Hoping he continues that this year (y)

    I think at 59 yards, most kickers have accuracy issues.

    Is that really "competition"? It's more or less having Austin Davis as a competition for Sam. Seems like a waste of a roster spot to me.

    Both were among the best kickers.

    Wilkins > Brown but Brown was very good.

    Kickers are taken for granted since Wilkins landed here. Before that, st Louis was a wasteland for kickers.

    When you say something like this choice:
    "Either now or later"
    Or no choice:
    "Neither now nor ever"
    Hey that's clever!

    I know what you mean, but there are a lot of camp bodies here that serve no purpose other than crash test dummies for the rest.
    GZ's mental issues concern me. Hopefully this doesn't resurface later.

    I'll give you that, once you get a guy like Wilkins it's hard to ween yourself off. I think GZ will step up nicely and fill the role with some experience. We'll have to just respectfully disagree about Brown... Ya tool. :sneaky:

    We lost a preseason game and I could give 2 shits about W-L in preseason. Spags was a Hall of Fame preseason coach. I will say that I saw a LOT to like out of our rookies and some of last years practice squad guys. For me I think I Gaines/Joyner shone brightest but Donald/Sam looked solid as well. Looking forward to next week to hopefully see some growth from the noobs.

    26 for 28. And he missed a 59 yarder this game while the whole situation was being rushed due to the strange penalty call when Davis spiked the ball and got called for grounding.

    He missed it slightly to the left on that kick. How many other kickers would even have the range for that kick? Not many.
