Ethertap: John Buck 41: 56 and 49 yarders aren't gimmes, for sure. The 31? Yeah, that's definitely on him. Thing is none of 'em were even close.

That 56 yarder was so bad it missed the field.

Looking forward to our next terrible kicker though. That brief moment of hope when you get a new guy should be quickly erased when he misses a 22 yarder on his first attempt.


Chicago released a former second round pick/college star kicker just before the season started, he might be worth a try!

Callous: skylabdown: That was painful to watch.... by the time the third one was being set up I was telling myself "There's NO WAY he misses thi.... Oh shiat."

I'm a Pats fan and felt bad enough for him that I genuinely wanted him to hit that one.

SkittlesAreYum: Ker_Thwap: xaks: eyeq360: Glockenspiel Hero: Klivian: Is it possible that it's the holder/long snapper? If you keep putting new kickers in and there's still a problem, eventually you have to look for another cause.

On the missed 31-yarder they did a slow motion replay of the snap and hold.  Holder got it down clean, turned the laces away and held it correctly.  (Linked since NFL is prevented embeds)  Folk just completely miffed it

The 31-yarder looked like a give-me one. Just kick it straight through the uprights and make 3 points. Folk went and hooked it way too the left. That was some funky kicking mechanics there.

It was nice actually having Feely on the sidelines for it "See him pick up his toe on the kick? That's cause he picked up his head. No confidence in the kick as he makes it, he HAS to look early to watch it, which causes the left hook"

His own head is up his ass, and the former kicker can show it in slow-mo

The announcers were surprisingly non terrible last night.  It seems like half the announcers normal have a gift of being able to piss off fans of both teams.

I'll never understand why people hate on Romo or Collinsworth. You don't like their voice? Do you want good football analysis or do you want Morgan Freeman? You can't have both.


Now, here's a guy who likes hearing "now, here's a guy who" over and over again on Sunday nights.

Aguayo is available. If not him, then there's probably a good kicker available in the first round next year.

At least Romo doesn't seem to take himself too seriously. He had a moment where he was praising the Bucs for doing something (maybe kicking a FG instead of going for it on 4th down) and after it failed he came right back with a tongue-in-cheek "like I said, you gotta go for it there".

It works out sometimes. The Bengals drafted a great kicker this year in Jake Elliott. Did you see that 61 yarder?

What's particularly odd for me is that as a Bucs fan from day one, I remember that traditionally the kicker was the high scorer.


That's was thanks to Dungys patented field goal em to death offense.

I had a high school gym teacher that was in his late 60's, and he would regularly kick 50 yard field goals. I don't remember him ever missing. Then he'd go back to the other end zone and put a dozen or so range balls right through the uprights from 110 yards with a pitching wedge.

The wiry old guy was like a freakish machine in flesh

If it's a once-in-a-generation guy, I can see spending a 6th rounder on him. Or just wait for a team to get pissed that an awesome kicker missed a key field goal and sign him for just over the veteran minimum. Whatever.


Janikowski was possibly the second-best 1st round pick in 2000 after Urlacher.

Ker_Thwap: As a Patriots fan, that was an ugly game to watch.  Solder looks slow and broken, more absolutely brainless penalties, some dropped passes, an overthrow.  Fortunately, the Bucs offense looked even worse.


As I've said before, Solder is a prime candidate for JPP therapy. But with him, im pretty sure he could have no arms and STILL find a way to hold.
