    Question, I've been following many of the reports coming out of this year's training camp. While everyone is concerned with our CB battle, Jake Locker, Bishop Sankey, and our LB, it appears that our kickers are consistently missing kicks every practice.

    Is it just me or is this a fair concern considering we ditched Bironas?!?

    It definitely isn't comforting, but they have time. If they are shanking kicks into a few preseason games, I'm sure they will be looking for a veteran kicker. Is Sankey playing badly? I haven't heard his name negatively yet...

    Naw, I haven't heard anything about Sankey playing badly. I just know one of my biggest concerns right now is our kicker.

    Cut Bironas, they said. Find a young kicker, they said. Yeah, great. Wait until we're losing games because of missed FGs.

    I do remember hearing reports this time of year every year that Bironas was doing the same.

    I won't worry until I see it in a live situation.

    I will say this... kicker honestly seems to be one of those positions in the NFL where you can almost plug-and-play any player.

    If these guys don't work out... they can get someone new, at any time.

    I think I'd roll with Coons. He seems like a safer option inside 45. Bonani has a stronger leg, but seems to have no control.

    Never thought I'd be interested in a kicker battle during preseason, but I am.

    We could always bring Bironas back for just a year and for a whole lot cheaper if we wanted to.

    Yep... we could do with him what we did with Gary Anderson if neither of these guys work out.

    All I know is I remember the year before we signed Bironas. It was one of our worse years in a long time and Fry is correct it most certainly cost us games. :-/
