[quote] Was his accuracy that bad?[/quote]
It apparently wasn't better than Delahoussaye's. Doesn't mean Hairston is a bad kicker, just that he's not as good as the other guy. And since Delahoussaye only missed 1 kick all year, and that was when he was hurt, I'd say they made the right call....

MIL recently passed away, so the wife and I are now in the process of selling her house. It's in pretty decent shape overall, but the flooring is completely shot. She didn't have a lot of money, so when she moved in she covered existing linoleum with a peel & stick tile which has since started to ...
