Do we keep two kickers this season, or do they battle it out in training camp??

Guess I should've opened the link first, my bad..

He had one touchback, after a penalty that let him kick from the 45 yard line.

he didnt really have the touchback ability that Mare had, but he had the leg strenght to blast 54yrd fieldgoals, I say we keep both like we did with Carney and that other guy....why not, we kept 5 tightends.

I like the resigning and the addition of Coach Jones to the staff. Personally though, I would have preferred a running backs coach more adept to helping Reggie on a one on one basis. I don't know anything about Kromer though so maybe he is that guy.

Now we're cooking! Good to see Grammatica in the fold. I hope he beats out Mare for the job.

"Kromer has been an offensive line assistant with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders for the past seven years."

2 of the worst offensive lines in the league over the past few years. Not sure if this is the guy we want.

I agree. Puzzling hire. Maybe he is an old friend of Payton's or someone he owes a favor to. :hihi:

He's had to coach the RBs on how not to get killed on the backfield behind those lines... great hire I'd say. :shrug:

But to be honest... the Raiders were near the top in rushing... I think... top 10 maybe?

for every person that would like to see improvement there's another that (seemingly) want any new coach or player to be a bust.

Maybe that's why he's doing running backs now

True....and how many people outside the Head Coach know the significance of an assistant coach? when a play goes bad who says....man we need to get a new runningbacks coach? nope, they say "that o-line needs to block better" but now that we got a some new coaches, look for alot of guys to start blaming the teams faults on them.
