Quote from: dd on February 25, 2023, 11:03:43 PMWe d be fools not to draft a kicker in the later rounds. I have zero confidence in the one we have, zero. And I know I?m not alone on this.
Quote from: Blue In BC on February 26, 2023, 12:15:58 AMYour position is clear. But I think overall you are in the minority. Doesn't make you either wrong or right, but nevertheless, the minority.
Quote from: TecnoGenius on February 26, 2023, 01:19:17 AMI have confidence in Leggs. Ever since the LDC. I have confidence he'll do at least slightly better than last season. And that's all I really expect. As long as he keeps trending up, we'll be ok. Our O has and will morph into more of a scoring O than a just-get-the-FG-with-Meddy O.We should have considered that final GC O series 3-down territory until we made the 20. If we had had that mindset we could have run BO20 2 more times instead of that failed quick pass to Demski on 2nd and 5.That's just the way it'll have to be as we let Leggs improve. Keep in mind Leggs could easily be as good as Lirim H-lots-of-letters in a few years.
Quote from: ModAdmin on February 26, 2023, 04:39:29 PMLiegghio doesn't get a free pass onto the team in 2023 and I'm sure he gets that. We need to bring in some competition and it is not good enough to say Liegghio "will be okay". I hope he does well this season and I hope he can improve on his performance but let's not get complacent thinking the job is his without looking at anyone else. His stats are not acceptable right now.
Quote from: Blue In BC on February 26, 2023, 05:13:25 PMI don't think anybody thinks he gets a free pass but finding a qualified kicker is not easy. Add in the ratio and roster size elements are part of the equation. By all means bring in competition. OTOH it's not unreasonable to think a player can progress at ANY position. I'm still in the camp that suggests looking for a global kicker to compete. It's less of a ratio issue potentially whether we have two kickers on the AR or one. Obviously we drafted several globals but none of those showed up in 2022.
Quote from: Pigskin on February 26, 2023, 05:11:54 PMHe is a good punter. His kickoffs are short compared to most kickers. The 5 missed converts needs to improve. The missed FG against Montreal was flat out a terrible kick. The blocked FG in the GC, looked like the OL didn't block well enough. He does need to improve his leg strength. I like the fact that he is physical and can make the odd tackle when required.
Quote from: TBURGESS on February 26, 2023, 02:05:40 PMLeggsStats:7th best FG kicker by %, .1 yard better than 8th.1 FG >= 50 yards, tied with 2 other kickers for 8th. Missed 5 Converts, worst in the league.Game Winning FG's 2, Ott/SknGame Losing misses 2, Mtl/Tor in the freakin GC. Ya Buts:We didn't need him to win most games.He punted well. He's not the only reason we lost.
