Around and around we go. Another week, another kicker dumped by the New England Patriots. This time, it’s Kai Forbath on the chopping block.
This is infuriating. I’ve been saying it for weeks now that the Patriots are going to lose a postseason game because of a missed extra point or they’ll lose by 4 in the dying seconds with their kicker having gone 1-3 on the day.
It’s utterly ridiculous that there aren’t 32 guys in the world that can kick a football through the uprights on a consistent basis. As a matter of fact, there should be far more than 32. There should be millions of capable, unemployed kickers hanging around high school fields looking for work every year.
At this point, Bill should either pick up the phone and ask Chad Ochocinco to kick a few balls (hell, he might even be able to catch a few on this team) or he should saunter his ass down the hall and grab whatever Brit who can’t crack the Revolution’s rotation in the MLS and see what he can do.
