Buehler admittedly frustrated by presence of Graham

 

Kicker David Buehler doesn't like the fact that Cowboys decided to sign veteran Shayne Graham. But what's more frustrating to him has been his inability to take hold of the job during a training camp battle with rookie Dan Bailey and a hip strain that kept him out of the second preseason game against the Chargers.
 
Both are reasons the Cowboys decided to add Graham, who is the third-most accurate kicker in NFL history and the favorite to win the job

But Buehler plans to keep fighting for his job. He is pushing to get back on the field for Saturday game against the Vikings. He said he hopes to start kicking again Thursday.
 
“It’s frustrating,” Buehler said. “But it’s frustrating getting hurt and not being able to get the opportunities. It’s not like Danny got a lot this last game, but in practice those opportunities are just as good as game-time opportunities, so every day I’m out it’s definitely frustrating … I’ve just got to get healthy and get back out there. It doesn’t matter who they bring in, I know if I get healthy it doesn’t matter who they bring in I can get the job done.”

give Buehler a break guys that his first year for kicking field goals in a couple of years and he missed like 5 field goals ya sure some woulda won the game but still hes a great athlete and has a strong leg

Why not bring in someone like Morten Anderson to work with Buehler. If his accuracy can be improved this guy could consistently hit from 60 yards.

Buehler has not taken advantage of the extra coaching attention and support of his teammates. After what he has been through with his ups and downs at this point and still hasn't been able to work through them mentally I say let him go.

It's just to bad about Buehler, his certainly has the leg to get the job done. He can kick for distance but he has not been as consistently as he should be at this stage. It's not like he needs a full squad to practice on his own. However I wish him well and good luck.

I really liked David Buehler and think having that kind of athlete in our lineup is a big plus. However he does need to take the job by the throat and make it his. Who was it that trained all those kickers back in our 90's heyday. Can we get that kicking coach back here to work with David?

Buehler is smoking crack! He needs to find a professional kick ball league, thinking he can get the job done. Hire anybody to kick field goals and we'll be better off. I think they should have a seat raffle on who gets to kick field goals for each game rather than bring Buehler back.

Then why has he not gotten the job done so far.
