Look, we know he has had a great career. However he is doing himself nor the Cardinals any favors at the end of it. He missed his sixth field goal of the season on Sunday.
For the second straight game Dawson missed a field goal after a decent opening drive. It was demoralizing two weeks ago. On Sunday the Cardinals didn’t allow it to get them down.
However at what point do the Cardinals address it? Dawson hadn’t missed six kicks in the last two seasons combined.
There may not be a better answer out there right now but the time may have come to at least look. If the Cardinals want to stay in the hunt they need a kicker they can rely on.
The issue is there have been several other teams that find themselves in the same boat. One team is already on their third kicker since training camp.
There just may not be anyone better out on the street right now. So Dawson needs to step it up. There are no excuses for missing these relatively easier kicks.
