    At first i was leaning toward Bonani with the stronger leg BUT i'll go with Travis Coons and his accuracy.

    Got to reserve judgement in preseason when it comes to the battle of kickers. Things will be a lot different when it comes to kicking against other teams. If they can't hack it in preseason, we are doomed, because I suspect we will be in a a lot of close games this year.

    The thing I didn't like about some of the kicks......too much line drives. Looked like if it were live they would have been easily blocked.

    I feel the same way about Dex. There is however the injury concern.

    I never understood the whole worrying about injuries on return duties thing. I think you put your best guy back there and let come what may. I think the injury concerns are overblown anyway. It's not like you have returners getting knocked out for the season every Sunday or anything.

    It's football. Go for the win. Don't play scared.

    Yeah, but if he goes down and we did not keep a return specialist then we are screwed.

    We really should consider re-signing Bironas. Decline and all I think he's better than either of these two. May be too early to judge but they feel like bums to me already.
