They signed Mare for a year and put Robbie on IR.

Mare is dreadful. Weak leg, accuracy problems. Don't see why they chose him.

Makes you wonder how bad Cundiff and Rackers must have been. Though the report does say they all performed well, I'm not reading too much into that.

Wow, Rackers couldn't win this job?! He had a huge leg and really isn't old.

Rackers
2011 HOU 32-38 84.2% long 54
2012 no team/released by WAS

Mare
2011 SEA 22-28 78.6% long 45
2012 no team

Mare's even 3 years older than Rackers.

This is mysterious Question

I don't think age is really coming into consideration when this is for 3 weeks, most likely.

Does Rackers have a coke habit? Let's start spreading rumors that he's a coke fiend.

Comparison

Rackers (36y/o)
2011 HOU 32-38 84.2% long 54
2012 no team/released by WAS

Mare (39y/o)
2011 SEA 22-28 78.6% long 45
2012 no team

Maybe he weighs 260lbs now??? This really surprises me.

It was simply that Mare impressed most on the day of the tryouts it seems. Personally, I don't really care about any of his past stats, just hope he kicks well for the rest of this season now.

I just hope Emery doesn't use Gould or any other season ending injuries to anyone not named Cutler as an excuse to not fire Lovie at the end of the season provided Bears miss the playoffs. Laughing
