Can Bailey Bail Us Out?

Recommended Posts

Bailey: “At this point in my career I wanted to, if it was possible, I wanted to somewhere that had an opportunity to win and be a part of an organization that’s right there and right on the brink of having a lot of success. So obviously when this situation came up it fit the bill perfectly. And then I can’t complain on eight games a year inside, so that was a plus as well. So just the ‘win now’ mentality, the guys in the locker room have been great, it’s a really great locker room. So it was kind of an easy decision.”

Fred Cox is easily the longest-tenured kicker in Vikings history, as 1963 was the first of his 15 consecutive seasons in Minnesota. Since then, they often have trouble finding kickers who stick. Their second-longest-tenured kickers are Fuad Reveiz (1990-95) and Ryan Longwell (2006-11), each lasting six seasons.

Bailey is 30 now....

So to break Freddy The Foot's record, he'll need to kick for MN until he's 46

I don't think I'm ready for a new #5. Its weird..

I don't think the #5 round pick was ready to kick in the NFL.  Correction: I know so.

Bailey seemed to kick well last night.  I thought someone else was going to have kickoff duties?  His kickoffs were pretty short.

The short kickoffs are actually good, imo. They are stopping them around the 25-30....and all you need is a holding or block in the back or fumble......

And, he looks better than what they've had, I think.

As long as we stop them. The risk is a big return.

I hope at this point we've figured out our coverage unit enough to trust them with a weaker kickoff specialist. 

Matt Wile has a nice leg. Why don't we let him Kickoff?
