The Los Angeles Chargers cut Drew Kaser because he is the worst holder on the planet Earth. We brought it an ancient punter to hold now.

I have no explanation on why the Los Angeles Chargers would cut punter Drew Kaser. He has been amazing this year at punting, but he is getting pegged as the scapegoat for the missed field goals. Kaser is the holder for the kicker and I guess they saw a little something flawed in that part of his game.

I had been wondering for a long time if there was an issue with the holder or the long snapper on the team. There had been too many kickers brought onto the team and they all had struggled. There was only a couple of constants with those missed field goals, the holder and the snapper.

They are pointing their fingers at the holder.

Donnie Jones is now going to handle the punting duties for the Chargers. He also will be doing the holding for the Chargers as well. He was the holder for Caleb Sturgis when they were in Philadelphia and Sturgis did amazing with Jones holding the field goals.

No more excuses.

With Kaser gone as the holder, the team doesn’t have any more excuses for the kicking game. If Sturgis misses another one, he should be gone and we bring in a new kicker again. The pressure is on for the kickers. Even more pressure than they had before.

I am ready to watch it play out, but I will admit I went on a bit of a rant on Twitter after I heard the news, but I think I have calmed down and like that the Chargers made a move. It might not be a popular move, but it is a move that could make a huge difference.

Now time to cut Addae. Bye.
