    I'd be cool with using a seventh round pick on a kicker for some legitimate competition. Who else is going to be around in the seventh?

    Making 85.7% of your kicks doesn't suck though...

    No its great. Why waste a pick Bironas looks to have plenty of quality kicks left. He boots it out of the end zone on nearly every kickoff so he doesn't appear to be losing any legal strength.

    Stupid auto correct eh?


    Anyway, I agree. He is still solid. Had a great year and the leg strength is still there. As long as the leg strength is there and he is making kicks we are good.
    Ewker and ColtKiller high five this.

    Yea, luckily he didn't cost us any games this year.

    I was impressed by that 55 yarder... didn't think he had it in him.

    One more year is fine, I guess. But I always have nightmares of Al Del Greco. I have always loved Bironas, but I was really worried he was gonna Del Greco us this season. I'd hate for his legacy to be tarnished because of something like that.

    Del Greco, like Bironas, was great for so long, but he ****ed us so hard in his final game, and that was the best shot we ever had at winning a Super Bowl. I guess we don't have to worry about Bironas screwing us out of a Super Bowl, seeing as we're nowhere near close to reaching one.

    Why waste a seventh round pick? Because those are so valuable. They're so valuable, in fact, that we traded one away to move up and pick Scott Solomon in the sixth. Two years later he's playing for the Jets.

    We've done ok with 7th round picks. Compared to other teams.
