Thought this guy deserved a thread :thup: I even made sure to spell his name correctly!
During training camp I was impressed with the way Maher was kicking the ball, and I thought he'd be worth an import spot. I was disappointed when the team cut him and hitched our hopes on Lirim. We've seen other kickers go through our training camps be let go only to thrive on another team (Paredes, and someone else I can't place right now.....).
I couldn't have been more wrong as "Haj " has made 19/21 FG's for a 90% rate, while Maher has struggled a bit going 16/23 for 70%. What's even more impressive is the fact that since Renaud went down, Lirim has filled in well for him. Sure his punting average isn't great, but he is improving.
Let's hope he can continue to be money on the FG's, and nail a few coffin corners as well! :rockin:
BTW - any word on when Renaud is supposed to be back, and if he will get punting duties back?
