I'm sorry, but I have no faith in the kicker. He has lost key games in the past. remember NY Jet game, 1 out of 3 kicks would have won the playoff game. He missed all 3. NE game, he missed again and this season, I see his kickoffs land on the 20 and 30 yard lines instard of deep into the endzone. Am I the only one that sees this?

The chargers are the best. Just i i think they are going to lose, they come back and win. Last year aganist the titans, and this year aganist thte cheifs. But i am disappointed in the recore, they are the most underperforming team in the NFL. They have so much talent. But the chargers have a good shot at making the playoffs
P.S. Any haters or fans want to email me at [email protected] I will gladly respond to all email :)

i'm with you jim. although his carrer-best 57yd fg against the bucs a few days back was a pleasant surprise. kaeding's kickoffs are shitty. but i think we're stuck because i doubt there can be room reserved on the 53 man roster for a kickoff specialist. it looks like were stuck with the slightly above average, albeit semi-choking nick kaeding...

go bolts!

Hey Bro- I see that too, and while I had ish with Kaeding- he has a pretty remarkable stat that I saw one game, he is like one of the highest rated kickers of all time. That being said- I think the Chargers coaches know that he is pretty crappy beyond 40, and that is not because he can't do it, he is just a choker-

2. His kickoffs suck- there is no doubt about it. It pisses me off that he can't kick it into the endzone. But often that is a problem because if they run it out it creates more space for the returner and it allows a greater number of long runbacks.(that is how I sell myself on his crappy kickoffs)

3. I have not really liked kaeding for a long time- but I think we could do a lot worse, and if you really look at it he is probably one of the top 5 young kickers in the game no doubt.

I think anyone who has been around for the Chargers remembers that John Carney was straight NAILS and should have spent the remainder of his career a SAN DIEGO CHARGER.

boo to the Chargers organization for ever letting him go.
