Was it a mistake by JG to go for the 58 yd fg try?

    agree. but that wasn't a bad call. the kicker had made 6 of 6 from 50 to that point. so do you punt and probably give the ball back at 25 or give the ball back 20 yards more?

    Kickers bounce around the league. Welcome to the NFL. Glad you could join us. Maher was cut before. He played in the CFL for crying out loud.

    Maher is a 78% career CFL kicker and a declining 80% his first year in the league. Forbath is a career 85% kicker his 7 years in the NFL.

    I'd say you don't know what you're talking about but that really goes without saying.

    and forbath got cut.... he may have been good. but he wasn't good enough to make any team and had to get cut to be picked up by jags...like you said kickers get kicked around (no pun intended). maher has a stronger leg than forbath.... it wouldn't have made a difference.....he was an 80% kicker this year....now you want to keep insisting that forbath is better than maher and pull out meaningless stats to argue your point. your choice..... it would be absolutely stupid and idiotic to cut a 80.2% kicker and sign an 80% kicker so that you a nobody on this message board would be satisfied.... and you are the only one who wants this, minn. cut him to sign a fifth round rookie with 0% career stats!!! and he was in so much demand, by 30 other teams that he only played 3 games this year...

    now take the stats...write them down on a piece of paper, ok, are you done...ok, roll the paper...ok...good, now reach back and shove it!!!! because that's how much its worth...enjoy

    Again, Maher was IN THE CFL FOR YEARS. You know why? Because no NFL team wanted him, genius. Including the Cowboys who cut him in camp.

    Yes, you're right. A 78% CFL kicker as well as an 80% NFL kicker for a year is much better than an 85% NFL kicker over 7 years.

    You tried. You lost. It happens.

    Maher's FG percentages during the season.

    Game 1-4: 88.9%
    5-8: 80%
    9-12: 88.9%
    13-16: 62.5%

    1-2 so far in the playoffs.

    CFL player. Him and Prescott can car pool up north.

    20. KO's go to the 25, but punts go to the 20.

    Due to the nature of our team, I punt the ball. 20 yards is a long way when you're counting the time in seconds.

    Disagree. Huge difference between a 50 yarder and a 58.

    I agree that we've seen improvement re his decision-making. However, Garrett has shown before he is going to kick the 50+ yd FG rather than punt. Similar situation happened in GB (2014), although, Bailey's 50 yd FG was blocked before halftime.

    Next time, we should be due.

    Even in a worse case scenario garret has to figure a miss and seattle probably won't be scoring a td, which they didn't. He also had to figure we'd get the ball back, which we did. The capitalized off of that.

    If your playing the saints or chiefs or even rams tomorrow that ball is punted.

    well, maher was wanted by an NFL team...they were called the cowboys...same year Forbath wasn't wanted by any NFL team until desperation time.... 85% over 7 years....what did he do this year and last year....... or do you want to go back all they way to his high school years.... come on dude....like 5% is going to be the difference for a guy who was on the streets and was cut..... and a 31 year old kicker at that.... you have to be better than that...you are losing this argument and not even close...

    We don't know what the kicker looked like in warmups. We know he has the leg, and he may have kicked a half dozen right down the pipe from 60 yards out an hour and a half earlier.
