No, not really, is more than that.

Phil Dawson thus far - 3 of 6

Havard Rugland - 3 of 3 (including a 50 yarder)

Like I said, it doesn't hurt to bring him in to work him out and see what he's got.

One of those was a 71 yarder.....


All I am saying is let's work Rugland out and see what he's got before he gets snatched up.
Anything less than than 70% on FGs under 50 yards is unacceptable in the NFL.

Dawson has nearly missed several extra points. If he misses one, and continues his FG pace, he's gone.
We have bad luck of always getting crappy kickers. At least this one can kick it out of the end zone on kickoffs.
Well they keep signing 38 year old kickers who used to be good and are way at the end of their careers. Age plus injuries. But hey it's been a proven formula for the 49ers so far so they stick with it. They keep singing declining kickers instead of really dealing with the problem by drafting the best young kicker in one of these drafts.

The way they deal with kickers makes about as much sense as the way they get FA and draft WR's.

This !!
I'll say this...Dawson has got one helluva hook down pat. How can you barely hook a PAT thru the crossbars? If you go back and look, his misses are virtually all pull hooks. In golf, that usually means you are swinging too hard(because you underclubbed). I wonder if there is a correlation to hook pulls from kicking too hard in football.

If and if....

Well, we are going to find out--unless we get a touchdown on every ..... no, that is not possible.

We will definitely find out.

San Diego, without a doubt you understand better than anybody, except myself maybe, that the glass is really broken--and broken glasses are never 1/2 anything.

Signing Dawson made sense; it was a good plan.

But, you and I know that the best laid plans, always go bad.

Keep the faith baby, you are going to need it.

HAHA, detroit let him go and Akers been sucking... that kid is pretty good


Honestly, I believe too much has been placed on him not having football experience. I used to play rugby and had kicked a little bit. All you need to know is how to kick the ball from A to B, it has nothing to do with whether you know the game of rugby. Didn't he have a very decent preseason ? If you ask me, guys like Akers and Dawson have passed their prime. If it was up to me, I would look out for the younger guys. We have nothing to lose to bring him in for a tryout.

Maybe we should've kept the rookie... but who would've known that Dawson was gonna start off like this. I just hope he gets it together for when he's really needed.
Maybe if my aunt had balz, she'd be my uncle.

Which rookie ? You mean Havard Rugland ? We didn't even try him out.

All I know is Dawson needs to step his game up a notch this week. We might need him to kick a game winning FG on Sunday. Hopefully we win big so we don't have to, but yeah.

No, I know thet Lions gave Rug a shot, but I meant the rookie, Colton Schmidt (punter/kicker), we had in camp....
