Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: the Cowboys’ special teams unit was bad in 2019. While there were issues all over the place, a big part of the dysfunction stemmed from the inconsistency of kicker Brett Maher. Too often the Cowboys would miss out on points because of a missed field goal that definitely should have been made.
They cut Maher and signed journeyman Kai Forbath with three games remaining. Although Forbath was perfect in those games, making all 10 of his field goals and all 10 of his extra points, it’s not necessarily a given that the Cowboys view him as their kicker going forward.
