    Get the Folk outta here, it’s time for Pat-fricken-Murray to score us some damn points!

    Glad to see Pat back! Hope this time he can stick around – he’s a good guy.

      He certainly can’t be worse!

    Well here goes another one. Folk had to be cut, no doubt about it. Let’s hope Patrick can rid us of this horrible kicking curse. If he comes out and misses his first kick next week, I’m playing the game like madden. We are going for it on fourth and always going for two. In all seriousness though let’s hope he’s the answer.

    Hopefully Santos will be around in a couple of weeks. He is by far the best option out there! He would be the solution to the Bucs kicking problems.

    Don’t take any chances sign Santos and wait for him to get healthy. Murray can hold the fort till then.

  7. 8


    not that the bucs need to obsess over money, but i guess the fact that Santos is a UFA almost certain to test the market makes him a less desirable long term option. As a 25 year old kicker with a great track record entering UFA, we could go from the league’s most insanely over-drafted kicker to the league’s most insanely over-paid kicker in a 3 offseason span. let’s hope murray is as reliable as before and well past any health issues, and makes kicker a non-conversation for years

    Some of you are suggesting that K Pat Murray is a temporary fix. Roy Cummings/FloridaFootballInsiders believes the same. Roy said “The Bucs were also believed to be looking on Monday at former Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos and according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, he was their top choice for the job.

    I’ve not heard anything from the Bucs officially and don’t expect to. I personally think if you got a kicker and he doesn’t miss, it’s his job to keep. I like the choice and hope that Murray succeeds. If not, it’s being reported that there is an alternative. Go Bucs!

    1. 9.1


      macabee – seems that any and all kickers are “temporary” until they prove their worth. Any kicker will miss a field goal every now or then … missing 7 kicks in two successive games, including shorty FGs and XPs, is a guaranteed ticket out of OBP.

    Can’t we just sign Santos now? If he is the best out there, sign them both. A lot of kickers have been missing and he might get signed elsewhere.

    He looks a lot like Gramatica in that picture.

  11. 12


    Seems like a good approach …. if Murray continues the recent tradition of snake-bit Bucs kickers, then we need to hire some quality soothsayers or medicine men or women to cure us of the curse.

    And Santos is still available should Murray stink it up the next couple of weeks.

  12. 13


    Which knee did Murray injure? He has a big leg and was amazing from long distance when we had him before. He was an all-american kicker at Fordham. I just wonder if he’s damaged goods, but I’m assuming he made some kicks in the tryout today.

  13. 14


    The kicker the Chiefs off the Panthers ps is looking very good after missing his first fg but is 100% since. We should have know about this kid being in our division. Was Light sleeping on this one? He has a strong leg and puts his kick offs thru the back of end zone.
