The Kicking Situation - 4th and Long for Kickers?

Personally, I have a lot of confidence in the Cowboys this year.  I feel pretty good about the Offensive Line.  I've reviewed Doug Free's effort at Right Tackle this year and I believe the team when they say he will make a solid Left Tackle.  Heck, he's going up againt Ware and Spencer in practice everyday.  If that doesnt make you better and expose your weaknesses, I dont know what will.  I also think Ball can play FS.  He wont make the Pro Bowl, but he can hold down the position for a year or two until we can get a stud in there.  If he's the weak link of our Defense, I think we'll be fine.

 

However, I cannot tell you how worried I am about the Kicker position.  I just dont have faith in David Beuhler.  If he wasnt even the best kicker on his college team, I dont see him as an elite NFL Kicker.  And I certainly dont think Chris Boniol is going to change that.  Now we've released his only competition.  I see this as a huge problem.

 

So how about we bring back the Michael Irvin reality show 4th and Long for Kickers?  They are not taping a show this season, but this competition makes more sense to me.  Seems like there would be a lot of untapped potential for kickers.  Open it up for potential kickers all around the world.  Bring in soccer players, and rugby guys and whatever else they can find under any rock possible.  The next Vinatieri or Stenarud is out there just waiting to be discovered.
