I'm going to beat a dead dog once again...
Our biggest need is a kicker! Period.
Having a kicker that you are confident in changes the way the entire team plays.
When we got into 30-40 yeard field goal range we should have been able to pound the ball up the middle and atempt to get soem yards on the ground... knowing that we had at least 3 points already secured.
BUT... 30 yard field goals for Jamie Boreham are like 50 yarders... with the wind in his face. He's inconsistent at best.
So... that forces the 'Cats to have to try for the touchdown almost everytime... rather than consistently putting some points on the board.
I don't know forsure... but how many times did we throw INT's while in the 30-40 yard range? Probably more than a few... because we had no faith in Jamie.
And how many field goals did we miss early in the game and have it flat out take the air out of our 'Cats tires?
Oh... we wouldn't have started 0-4 if Jamie could kick.
Lets take friendships and emotions out of this. Football is a business. Jamie isn't working. Cut him.
Sorry... one more thing.
Last year we had to sign a punter because that's something else Jamie can't do. Well...
I could understand paying someone to handle the punts if...
a) They had a leg like Jon Ryan and it was just crazy not to sign him.
b) The placekicker was good. If you have a kicker that's automatic... heck... pay for a punter as well because keeping that kicker is your #1 priority. Jamie stinks. Period.
