Quote from: dd on February 26, 2023, 08:50:24 PMThanks for bringing some FACTS to this discussion. Missed most converts in the league and is 7th best kicker statistically in a 9 team league. Yup, he?s a keeper all right!! What a complete joke. Good thing we signed Lawler and have the leagues best receiving corps as our offense will cover up for our pathetic kicking game.
Quote from: pjrocksmb on February 26, 2023, 09:27:41 PMWhile Leggs struggling next year is one potential outcome, I believe you are strongly overstating the negative. Disagree our kicking game is pathetic. Punting is good and great at times. Kickoffs fair to average. FGs fair, singles poor. Overall C+ in my opinion. We shall see what the next chapter brings. I have hope. You are entitled to your take.

Weather, field position, bad snaps, length of FG's and when during the season the kicks were missed. Length of kicks by other kickers etc. Every kicker missed some kicks in 2022. 16 other missed converts in the CFL. In fact Castillo missed 3 and had a lower success % rate than Liegghio. Lauther missed 2 of 25. Paredes had 40 of his 60 FG attempts at 39 yards of less ( nearly double Liegghio's. ).Bombers scored more TD's by a long shot. Not sure how many of any kickers efforts were tipped, influenced by weather or bad snaps.Bombers finished 15 - 3 and played in the Grey Cup. We'll see what 2023 brings.

Quote from: TecnoGenius on February 27, 2023, 04:17:21 AMBut that's clearly part of the plan. We lost the key puzzle piece Meddy and the CFL has a dearth of great kickers so what are you gonna do? We recover a DI spot and field a do-it-all NAT. What else would you have KW do? There really is nobody else loose at the moment, and certainly not NATs. Who pray tell do you sign? You gonna make a splash lose-a-big-name trade for one before week 1? There's none I'd even want.And yes, the O will have to cover for the weaker FG game. And that's fine. Let's be like that NFL team in the playoffs (Bengals?) that considered every snap on the good side of 50 to be 4 down territory. Let's just go 3 down ball until we get to the 20, then we consider a FG.2nd and 5 it's not a sure thing we get 5, but our great O can try bloody hard to make sure that on 2nd and 5 with 2 more downs we can get 5.And if PATs are still sucking, let's just go for 2 nearly every single time. Do the math. I'm sure with a PAT-bad kicker the numbers favor that approach.IF Leggs doesn't improve over 2022, THEN you pull the trigger. I think he will improve: as you all point out, his numbers are so bad he'd have to be pathetic to not get better. You all forgot how he looked even worse in 2021!!! I say he'll improve and we'll still win games.
