the 50 yard miss was the turning point in the game, I actually thought we should have gone for it on 4th and 3 the way Brees was playing


Oakland gets a 2nd life and promptly goes down the field for 7

I don't care what anyone says... 50 yd FG in a dome... should be a no-miss.

Forbath would have hit the 50 most likely but missed the 60.

This was the risk.

But still... defensive collapse.

I hope the know-nothings don't run this kicker out of town.

he has an incredible leg, he is the future.

kai forbath is trash, CSP wouldn't have even let him attempted a 61 yarder. barth is washed up too.

Lutz is fine, he just needs some time

since 2010, NFL kickers have made 61.9 percent of their field goal attempts — from more than 50 yards.

He was a finger tip away from being 1/4

Lutz won't last long.
Get him some outside help immediately if you are serious.

But I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see Forbath kicking again at some point, if he picks up the phone.

Comical.

Cairo Santos had a rough start at Kansas but they did keep him and Andy Reid showed that he trusted Cairo. Then he became a great kicker for them.

You either have patience with a young kicker or you never will have a good kicker.

Nick Folk missed his first pat in 312 attempts, so there's that, heh. I'm actually not mad about Lutz. At least not after his first game. Let's see where we are in 6 games.
