Vikings To Stick With Kicker Blair Walsh

The Vikings worked out multiple kickers today, but they won’t be signing any of them at this time. Minnesota is planning to stick with Blair Walsh, a league source tells Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter). Blair Walsh (vertical)

In last year’s Wild Card round, Walsh missed a chip shot field goal at the end of the game and ended the Vikings’ season. Before that, he was 30-for-31 on field goal attempts inside of 30 yards for his career. Since then, Walsh’s struggles have continued.

Most recently, Walsh missed an extra point attempt and had a field goal blocked as the Vikings lost to the Lions 22-16. This season, Walsh is just 12-16 on field goal attempts, giving him a completion percentage that puts him in the bottom third of the NFL.

    Well, maybe it’ll light a fire under Blair’s rear end. Or something.

    Can’t say I’m happy. I wish we had cut the cord. I’d rather take my chances with any serviceable kicker than continue to worry he is going to cost us games. At least a change would show an attempt to fix the problem. All I can do now is hope he makes his kicks. SKOL!! BEAT WASHINGTON!!!
