Chargers kicker Nate Kaeding wants to be cut now, so that he can immediately pick his next team. The Chargers apparently plan to cut him after Tuesday, at which time vested veterans must pass through waivers.


Would he be an upgrade?

He'll be released Tuesday per reports and he is not an upgrade. If they don't want him, there is probably a reason, lol.


Kickers are like baseball hitters. They all go through slumps. Mason Crosby just needs to snap out of this one before I punch him in the ding ding.

No! And I don't think he would be an upgrade.

No, Crosby just needs to adjust his kick. Not only have his FG been bad, he has not been kicking off the best either. It seems he is simply getting to much of the ball on kicks. It is much the same as soccer or even baseball. When you hit/kick the ball squarely, it tends to knuckle which is what I have seen his ball doing.

Get a little lower on the ball so it back spins end over end more and he will be fine.

Maybe if Zero punches him in the ding ding it would alter his swing lower on the ball.

Hey, it's worth a try. Tongue

I say we stick with "Bing".
But i have to admit, my patience is starting to grow a little thin.
When he comes out, i don't have the same confidence i had in him in past seasons.
But as was said, it could just be a slump. Hopefully he can correct it and get back in the swing.

Let's take one step away from the edge of the cliff...Kaeding is definitely not an upgrade.

Have faith in our Canadian.

Fact - Crosby only misses FGs when I have him on my fantasy team.

Sorry guys and gals. I had him Sunday. I'll drop him tomorrow. K? Bye.

hardrocker950 (11h) : Just wonderful - my pick em didn't register....
beast (21h) : I'm not sure if it's still true, but it used to be hard to get sacks on Eli because he'd toss one up when linemen got semi-close (which lead
Zero2Cool (22h) : Slam Eli a lot very early. Once rattled he can't regain composure.
beast (22h) : since slot WRs might be the Packers strength depth/talent wise
beast (22h) : With AR's passing % down field so low, I've been saying they should go with short passes like the Pats used to do, especially since slot WRs
beast (22h) : What's going to be needed against the Giants is OL and DBs (IMO)
Smokey (28-Sep) : Cook(TE) has time to heal, but may not be needed against NYG on Oct 9th .
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : . Aaron Rodgers has a completion percentage of 33.3 on 10+ air yard passes this season (tied for the lowest in NFL).
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : High-ankle sprain could sideline Cook
Zero2Cool (26-Sep) : Odell Beckham Jr, Dez Bryant, Alshon Jeffery and Julio Jones on tap for Packers. Yippie.

TheKanataThrilla (25-Sep) : Cleveland loses.
The_Green_Ninja (25-Sep) : I swear, Jacksonville's hot weather must be a huge advantage. Kept it super close with the Ravens
TheKanataThrilla (25-Sep) : Su'a Cravens with a big INT. A guy I wanted.
TheKanataThrilla (25-Sep) : Can Cleveland win?
Zero2Cool (25-Sep) : T.J. Lang said after one of Aaron Rodgers' TD passes the Packers quarterback head-butted Lang in excitement and said "I'm back."
