# Jason Elam has had a great career. With all the teams that need kickers, bet he's not out of work long. But he does not excel at kickoffs. 2 minutes ago from web

Needed to happen. Thanks for a great season last year Jason. Sucks that it had to happen like this, but we needed to address this. I wish Elam the best of luck with whatever team he ends up with. Great guy, great kicker, sadly ended up costing us a couple of really important games and maybe the playoffs.

Its a shame we lost a few games earlier due to kick, honestly we should be 7-4 at the worst.

I 100% agree.... The kicking game has cost us atleast 2 games... I feel like vs the Giants, Saints and Panthers...In all 3 of those games Elam missed a kick that would have put us ahead or tied the game.....

Epic, sure, but Elam missed a 33 yard field goal with 2:50 left in the 4th quarter of that same game. More epic was Matt Ryan and Michael Jenkins (and a dumb decision by the Bears special teams to squib the kickoff), giving Elam a chance to redeem himself with the 48 yard winner. The 33 yarder missed, practically a gimme, would've put the Falcons up by 9 with less than three minutes to go.
