Default One idea how to fix Nate

Marty should have one of the coaches get a rain sprinkler, follow Kaeding around, and every time Kaeding goes to kick in practice this week have it raining on him.

It sounds stupid, but if you really think about it, it is a good idea.

Bolt Good idea but

It seems like a good idea. You could also bring in large fans and place them in different variations to simulate swirling winds or whatnot.

The only thing is there is 2 problems with this.

#1 you would wet down the field and a wet field is a liability. Possibly injuring nate himself or a number of other chargers

#2 If constantly kicking wet balls, he can overcompensate. Wet balls are heavier and leave the ground differently than dry balls. Dry weather kick ability could suffer some.


Another solution would be to keep headphones on him during the game and let him be blindfolded or something to keep the pressure out of his head and just tap him on the shoulder when ready to kick.

Thumbs down pathetic/weak doesn't belong

A division 3 college team would not keep this kicker around. He simply continues to exhibit High school 3S performance and poor mental concentration. Hey Schott; can you spell C H O K E as this guys obvious furture outcome ?
More concerning is the head coaches wilingness to sacrifice the efforts of the rest of the team to support this pathetic wrong lane kicker who has very little general athletic wherewithall.

Take a look up the coast and locate Carneys protege from LCC in '98 you'll find an exceptional multi athlete, extradordianry kicker and NO record of choking and mental breakdown.

As opposed to the astounding athleticism of the rest of the kickers in the league?

Exclamation Get real

How does any NFL team that has years of weed-em-out coaching experience find themselves clinging to potential kicker solutions used by 12 year olds in Pop Warner ? This guy will never be the real deal. Look at his 2 season instability through reruns and close-ups. Thsi is the NFL not Pop Warner.

Does your name imply that you haven't quite decided whether to back our beloved Bolts or not?

Going on the basis that the opposite of love is indifference, why do you so vehemently dislike Kaeding? Did he steal your girlfriend? Run over your puppy? Insult your Momma? It can't be that he missed those kicks in a preseason game.

I'd rather him work it out right now then during the season.

Maybe you should change your name to Nostradamus for letting us know what Nate will or won't be for the rest of his career.















Oh yea, welcome to the board
