Walsh is Gone!

Recommended Posts

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.

I have no clue who Kai Forbath is but I like him already!


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.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
