Kaser, if he stays needs to be on a short leash. I can recall at least 2 games last year that he singlehandedly blew. Hurts seeing him boot a 17 yrder and then King on the other side of the field blast 60+ yard bombs.

If there are any positions in football where you can find gems as undrafted free agents it's kicker & punter. It's a waste to draft them.

To this day, no matter how good Janikowski has been, he was a waste of a first round pick. He didn't help a bit while they lost year after year after year. In his 17 year career the Raiders have 108 wins & 164 losses and he has made only 1 Pro Bowl.

Look how bad Aguayo was for the Bucs last season. Wasted a 2nd round pick on a mediocre at best, kicker.

Wow, not good. It's one thing to shank a punt due to rookie nerves under pressure in front of a hostile crowd in KC or Denver...totally another thing to mess up in front of a small, laid-back L.A. crowd in OTA's...

Kaser and Lambo should BOTH get a real hard look this spring and summer...if Baker or Koo can show some cool nerves and get it done, one or both of Kaser and Lambo need to go...

(I will remain consistent and argue that the pro leagues undervalue heart/head/stones -- whatever you want to call intangibles. The "it" thing is a "talent" as well, imo. This isn't to say that Kaser is lacking, but something was off last year, and physical tools alone are not always enough to prevail. I hope there isn't a problem, and seems like there shouldn't be, based on his collegiate success, but dayum last year was puzzling).
I am right there with you. I hope that both he and the team are doing whatever they can to rectify it. If not I can't imagine that no nonsense Lynn will put up with too many screw ups on Kaser's part.

100 percent.
poise is a kickers most important attribute.
most kickers can make the actual kicks

Not sure about a crowd -- they were closed. Also -- the OTA's are in SD.
