Horrible News on Elam


Recommended Posts

Just got a tidbit from a very reliable league source. The Atlanta Falcons worked out four kickers on Tuesday.

They had Brandon Coutu, Sam Swank, Shane Andrus and Steve Hauschka in for workouts. This is highly interesting because the Falcons have veteran (and Georgia native) Jason Elam as their kicker.

The league source said no moves are imminent and the Falcons plan to stick with Elam this week. But the team apparently is assembling a list of possible replacements.

That’s not a bad idea because the normally-reliable Elam hasn’t been very accurate on field goals this season and has been listed on the injury report much of this year.

SERIOUSLY??? WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO STOP THIS INSANITY????

Like someone else stated, Elam is a class act, but the guy stays hurt a lot now, and is past his prime. I think it's time for him to retire, and get to know the wife and kids again.

Now, from what little I know about the kickers they brought in, Coutu seems to be the best.

What think ye?

GO, YOU DIRTY BIRDS!!!
