This is probably not a good idea

OUT: Garrett "Hairdo" Hartley, K

Kickers are a dime a dozen, kickers don't make or break your team, yadda yadda yadda. I've said it all before and I still stand by it. HOWEVEAH, I think it might be just a skoosh early to hand over your starting job to a guy that has a career FG percentage of 25% and a college percentage that doesn't even sniff 50%. Woof.

Those are failing grades, people. Failing at school, failing at kicking a football through yellow posts and failing at life.

Shanny better bring a veteran leg at some point during camp. I don't think Prater will be able to get the job done if he doesn't have at least some competition.

Wouldn't it behoove teh Donks to bring in 6-8 kickers and really open it up? Matt Prater seems to be the favorite among the 2-3 kickers.

Prater is the only kicker on the roster right now.

In the past, Shanny would at least bring in an extra kicker to push Elam every year.

So, he's going to push Elam, but Prater's so good he doesn't need competition? It makes no sense.
