I don't expect too many burn the clock off drives and then looking to get the FG attempt lined up in the right spot. Hopefully that nonsense is over with and we keep the foot on the gas.
Packers just picked Brkic up, I am not happy about it, anyone but the Packers! :wallbang:

I saw that. The kid didn't even make it to training camp so that tells me he didn't show anything during OTAs ect... With that he'll probably boot a game winner against us this year from 60 yards.

I say he'll lose one for the Pack if he makes the team.

That’s it right there.

Getting signed does not mean he’ll be their kicker. Brkic boasts a huge leg but obviously has accuracy issues, based on the daily reports from OTAs and minicamp. I kinda hope he makes the Pukers so he can blow important kicks against us.

Go ahead. I dare you.
Underestimate this man.

I will say, for the bad string of luck we’ve had with kickers, Joseph was pretty solid last year. The Arizona kick was a massive choke but for the most part he was pretty reliable so I can’t complain too much. If we were sitting here holding onto Blair Walsh for as long as we did a few years back it would be a different story. But I personally like Joseph (right now that is, knock on wood)

Joseph was solid last year, but what if..............
What if the refs had of called Cook down by contact in the Cinci game and Joseph had made the FG in the second. It would have put an entire different vibe to the season and who knows what would have happened.

What? you can see the future? Or this is your way of saying you still hope he is this season?

He's our Kicker and barring him screwing up will remain our kicker. Screwing up is always a possibility.

So he isnt our kicker, just like I said. He WAS our kicker, but the Vikings had kicker problems every year for a while now

You really want to argue that our kicker isn't our kicker. He is our kicker. That can change just like anything can change.

I know that kickers are proven on Sundays during the real season, but so far this offseason Joseph has been making everything. Might as well call him Greg the Leg.

He played good for us except the missed chip shot for the win. Of course if he chunks another game winner he will be called No leg Peg.
