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.
