Maybe it was game style at the time but his kicking absolutely crucified us. he'd break lines and carry the ball forward, so the rest of the team would forward of their man running off, then he'd directly turn it over and it'd be an easy path back to goal for an opposition with good skills. This would just happen time and time again with him. I remember a derby in which we got flogged on a wet night, he did this 3 times in the first quarter as well as missing goal, out on the full. Freo were actually on top at that point but had no score on the board, then eagles got into gear and pantsed us. I was thrilled he left to be honest. Happy that he's doing well now but he really did kill us. I line breaking mid is no good if they cant kick. Brad Hill's kicking wasnt far off. He was a specialist at the flower bag. Much better player when he runs, carries and links up with handball instead of kicking.Ed's kicking is massively exaggerated by a few on here. No where near elite but good enough, and was when he was with us. We miss him (as much as some refuse to accept)
I hope he wins a flag and think he will.
