I don't know what you'd expect after firing your kicker in midseason. I don't expect jobless kickers to be amazing.

Of course I'm stoked the kid made it, but you mean to tell me there isn't at least one other person walking around the planet that would be better?

Prolly, D, but the kid got away with hitting the ball a tad high. Now I go to town building his confidence...

He's now "tested under fire".

So I ride him for at least another week.

Bailey has been 1 for 3 today for the Viks so far. Crosby was one of 5 and a missed XP.

Boswell is being paid $20m and been crap this year. Rams missed an XP tonight the whole league seems to be suffering 

apart from Tucker

We may be outbid by the Pack for anyone who's on the market..

Crosby missed 4 FG and a PAT.. and they still sent him out for a 5th FG which he made with 2 seconds left.  Pack lost by 8 indoors to Lions.

My band played a benefit concert today  -  missed the game  -  but I'm just watching the highlights, and I say, "START kicker tryouts again!"

Keep the kicker. Get a guy that can coach him up. 

Virtually all special teams coaches know little to nothing about kicking field goals, so good luck finding that guy.

Right mentality for a kicker or a DB. Just forget the last play good or bad and prepare for the next.

What I see are Browns on the right with nobody to block. We dodged a bullet with this field goal not being blocked. Seemed like #88 for the Browns should have focused more on blocking the inside threat (more of a direct shorter distance to the kicker) instead of the outside one.

Send him away!

I think after 5 weeks and multiple kickers with no improvement, it might not be JUST the kicker.

I don't know. It was an ugly butt kick but it went in and capped an ugly butt game that we WON..  

 

I like this kid.. Something tells me they got this pick right.  He is young and has a good head on his shoulders. The reaction to him getting the game ball in the locker room was priceless.. the guys like him and that is great for confidence. I think that confidence is a bigger factor in kicking than leg strength even..  He seems to have the later and not much of the former.. Confidence can be built.. He has leg strength He had the distance to kick that last minute 55 yarder in regular time, he just didn't believe he could do it.

The FG that won the game had no confidence behind it, but it went in anyways... He will do better.. He is young and he has the leg strength. He just needs to believe he can do it.. And that game winning FG will make him CRAVE the next clutch kick he needs to make..

Bob- The Kick was partially blocked by a guy the STs players should never have allowed to get in. It's once again on Jones. He sucks.

I think one of Phils kicks was described as just making it past a coat of paint or something like that...

Agreed, you look at the pre snap defensive alignment the Ravens overloaded the left side. Darn lucky the kick wasn't totally blocked. Two guys trying to block four.
