"You see, the Panthers replaced John Kasay with veteran kicker Olindo Mare. At the same time Kasay was signing his thank-you letter to his fans, Mare was signing a four-year, $12 million contract as the Panthers new kicker. The problem? John Kasay is a more accurate kicker than Olindo Mare!
Consider this - between 2006 and 2010, John Kasay was one of 27 kickers to attempt at least 100 field goals and his 86.6% (123 of 142) field goal percentage places him seventh overall in terms of accuracy. Where does Olindo Mare fall on that list? Twenty-fourth, connecting on just 80.1% of his attempts."
