Walsh is Gone!

11 posts in this topic

Looks like the Vikings finally released Walsh today.  Not sure how but his termination papers got leaked today and it seems clear they made the right decision by releasing him.  Looks like he was wide left again.

He's a guy with a career 84.1 FG %.

Blair was at 84.2%. Yeah, let's let that sink in...

 

BUT... Forbath was 34/35 on PATs last year for the Skins, so that's obviously a step up for us. He's honestly a decent kicker, but has his quirks, too... For example, he can hit some long FGs (50+), but can't get touchbacks regularly. Maybe he's a head case. So at worst, we just fired one head case and took on another one with a marginally worse FG % (and ended up with over 3 million in dead cap space in the process). At best, we get a guy with similar FG percentage, hopefully less yips, and someone who won't blow PATs. Really a "we'll see what happens" thing.

I actually wasn't totally on board with getting rid of Walsh for the exact reasons pikestabber mentioned.  There just aren't that many decent kickers out there.  It was probably a lateral move at best.  The only advantage is that we got to enjoy the feeling of kicking Walsh to the curb, he probably landed a little wide left though.

Decent and damaged are two different categories. He doesn't have any confidence in himself, and won't until he can get over the miss last winter against Seattle. I'm glad he was sent packing, even though it was a month too late.

    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
