That stat means nothing because Frost has only taken 2 kickoffs, his average could go either up or down with more kicks so we do not know. It is always a better bet to go with the vet, maybe he will do better next season, but the trends have shown he is going downhill.

As of late, execluding the 14 yard punt in Tampa, he has done very well for us. We are writing him off too soon, if anything we should keep him and see how things go. He has slowly improved, and he did well for us in Seattle. Give the kid a chance, and see how he does, all signs seem to indicate he will only improve.

What eveidence have you seen that gives you any impression that he will ever be any better than Hall is right now? There hasn't been any if you are honest with yourself. He is an average kicker at best. His leg strength is not going to go up all off a sudden and he has no experience. I am not advocating keeping Hall for sure but Novak is not any better.

It's also lame to settle for a guy who is mediocre just because he is cheaply mediocre.

The skins have done everything in their power to keep Hall on the team, they are not going to dump him after missing 1 FG.

I didn't mean to endorse Novak in that thread necessarily, he just comes to mind because he kicked reasonably well for us in Hall's absence and he was good at UMD.

Looking at his numbers this year it's clear Novak was not awesome. I was just pointing out that Hall is going to be getting paid a ton of cash to basically be slightly better than average. And unfortunately I don't see the obvious quality alternatives being any cheaper.

Re: New Kicker And Punter, Can We Afford Them?

I think Vinatieri would be a great pickup but would cost. Question is whether the cost would be worth it. Are there any college kickers with actual good legs who could be options?

novak's kickoffs were also short. if u all want someone to replace hall on kickoffs, then novak isnt the answer. however, he seemed to be solid at fgs, but he did get 2 blocked...i dont think that was a fluke

Dream on if you think we can afford Vinetieri. We have other positions to upgrade at (WR, DE, OL). If Hall is going to be replaced, it will be with someone cheaper.

Re: New Kicker And Punter, Can We Afford Them?

Both Frost and Novak are young and it'd be good to let them develop a little bit.

Like someone said earlier, Frost started to come on later in the year.
