    Maybe JRob could hire Mike Reinfeldt back just to evaluate kickers and punters from now on.

    Badgley was just shy of 83% in his career before last week

    Yup. He was good with the Chargers. He had an injury that led to his release I believe.

    I think, like it's been stated, we need to give the kicker a chance

    Agreed but fans ripped team last year for hanging onto Gostkowski. Fans will just complain either way lol

    And I’m good with bringing in “proven” guys. Just stick with them.
    I think part of the kicking problem is strictly based on the continuous throwing out of a new kicker.
    I badgley wasn’t the guy expected to stay.

    I think Vrabel needs to change his mindset a little anyway if not using the kicker as much.

    I also agree on the succop thing, I also wanted him gone, thought age and the recovery wasn’t going to happen.
    that said, I don’t know why JRob didn’t keep Joseph. He was perfect in all the kicks he took for tennessee.

    Santos was a unique case like this. Money until the Buffalo game. Should have kept him too but also game time, shouldn’t have allowed him to miss 4 FG. Kickers have bad games too.

    So you were good with Gostkowski last year? They stuck with him.

    Hahaha at least Vrabel knows…

    "Every time we go out there to kick I hope they do their job, no matter who it is – whether it's Brett Kern, Randy, or the 53 other kickers that we've had since I've been here," Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said on Wednesday.

    Do I think he kicked well enough to keep his job this year, no.
    Do I think his first game back was poor, yep. And to help prove my point, he went 3/4 xp the next week and perfect from there on out in XP. His FG were iffy, but he was 8/8 after his first game misses in the next 2 weeks.

    He was also 7/8 from 50+, his inconsistencies from under that are likely what cost him his job.

    So for comparison, I absolutely think Badgley should have gotten another couple weeks at least. Same with santos 2 years ago, although that loss to Buffalo was a painful one. Then I thought Parkey could have stayed and played through his misses.
    I also think we should have kept Joseph from a couple years ago meaning Gostkowski wouldn’t have been here at all last year (unless of course Joseph started missing).

    I was glad to move on from Succup, didn’t see him bouncing back, dead wrong, he’s doing fine.
    I was ok moving on from Gostkowski after a season full of inconsistencies with FG inside 50.
    Santoso was a waste and never kicked any FG or XP. Not sure why he was on the team really, but does add another piece that Vrabel, JRob, or whoever is picking kickers is a little out of their league.
