Kinda interesting--Forbath didn't kickoff in college.. only placekicks. Maybe special teams better gear up to stop a few more returns.. This could go either way -- pin inside the 20 or get a fumble -- or d'oh! get burned.. !


Even a few years ago, there were many punters doing the kickoffs in the NFL. It is obviously something they looked at when they tried out the kickers, so I do not see it being an issue. Frankly, Cundiff was pretty poor with kickoffs, so the difference is likely to be negligible.
Cundiff was tied for 4th in the NFL with 18 touchbacks... d'oh!

Yeah. Shanahan said he hopes Forbath can be around for 15 YEARS!!! Let's hope he is that good!!! Pray

If we manage to get QB and K locked up for EVEN 10 years (in the same year!) I will be SO happy!

Along with a LT and two great pAss rushers...building a future foundation.

we need a FS and top cb, then we'd have all the top positions covered on the team.

Huge kick by Forbath today. His FG changed momentum for the whole game. If he misses that FG, the game completely changes.

id like to draft Wiiig the P from LSU if he's around in the 6th or 7th round. It'd be nice to lock that down for 15 years also.
