I know strange right?  Who talks about kickers?  It may actually end up being a position where we need someone tho.   I am thinking Rian Lindell may be done here in Buffalo.   I still can not figure out if he couldn't make those long feild goals last year or if Chan didn't trust him to try..........but either way without looking it up...i would have to guess we had to be somewhere close to last in the league in
touchbacks.   Feild position is pretty important if you ask me.

Powell on the other hand........I think he will be here.   The kid has one heck of a leg.  He some work to do to get more consistant.  For the most part last year he was pretty solid.

We can add these guys to the forgotten man list :)  Hey, at the very least we are talking about something different!  (Please don't turn it into a QB thread! please!)

I am on board with drafting a good kicker rd 6. We left a lot of points on the field due to lindell's lack of range.

We left a lot of points on the field due to Chan Gailey's opinion of Lindell's range.

That is what I am interested to know.  Has he lost leg?   From kick offs is appears it is a possibility.  However I remember him as mostly clutch

The kickoffs are what worried me. I'm not sure Chan was wrong in his estimation of how much leg Lindell has left.

As much as it gets over looked........it is really important.  We need the opposing team to have the worst feild position possible.  Having a kicker than can kick it out every time would be a help.
