    I wasn't aware that you got to keep your old gear when leading a team.

    Catcher's gear is considered personal gear, meaning that the players themselves buy the gear which means they own it and get to keep it. It's like bats, shoes, and batting gloves, ect. The only equipment that the team owns and keeps are batting helmets and hard hats that catchers wear under their masks.

    AJC spoke with Don Sutton. He said his leg is progressing it's just a slow process. He had a rod, screws and anchors placed for his femur to heal. Sutton said its killing him to not be at the park and hes watched every game this season. He added that he expects to miss the entire season but wont rule out doing a few games in September if he can. 

    About ******* time they did an update on him. I asked about him months ago and got no response from anyone associated with the team.

    Cubs aren't giving us much help right now. Down 5-2 in the 5th. Would really be nice if they could take at least a game from the gNats 

    Which sucks because Cubs have the best home record in the NL this year and yet Nats are owning them.

    It’s not mechanical issue. It’s mental block. Kickers can go from best to worst or other way quickly.

    if you ever ran hurdles on track, this is similar. You can’t be thinking and second guessing. It happens a lot to even champion hurdlers, they hesitate their form looks like crap.

    It is mechanical. It's like a golfer who's slightly misstriking the ball. It's very minimum but it's just enough that it throws off what the ball does. Seriously, you're acting the ball not doing what it normally does is somehow because he's thinking too much. How does that make any sense? If I kick a ball for 15 years and it moves the exact same way it always does and then all of a sudden it's not moving the same way anymore you really gonna think it's because I've got a mental block and forgot how to kick? That's silly dude. What I'm thinking about how has nothing to do with how the ball moves while it's in the air.

    Also, as far as him being nearly 30 and should have already figured this out, looking back throughout NFL history the majority of kickers have their best years after the age of 30 including Matt Bryant who was a "bum" until the Falcons signed him.

    They are entirely different. With kickers its mostly mental block, doesn't mean they are unstable. I am not calling him a liar, I agree with him on why he is missing. He is trying to compensate for the curve and missing the FG now when it doesn't curve. he is thinking too much. 

    Well, let's see, he's 29 years old and has been kicking a ball for the vast majority of it and is used to getting a consistent result and now he isn't getting that same result and doesn't understand why. I would hardly call that a mental block. It's a mechanical issue. Something that is just barely off enough that is causing his kicks to do something different than what he's used to. It's not the same issue that Blair Walsh had.

    Could be something as simple as where his plant foot is ending up compared to the hold and how much torque his leg is getting when making contact with the ball.

    The only "mental" part to it is him trying to convince himself to aim differently and trust that the ball will do what it's doing right now and that it won't revert back to what he's used to. If you want to call that a mental block then I'll give you that. But it's far from the Blair Walsh situation. Although, you're right, that if this continues it could end up there.

    Mentally unstable? Drama much. He has the leg, it’s mental block for him right now. It’s common with kickers. You want them to gain confidence, longer this lingers, the harder it gets.

    Lol. Mental block, mentally unstable, is there really a difference?

    Guess you're calling him a liar even though there's video proof that supports the reason he said he's missing?

    I asked this early on are the long snapper and holder the same as last year.

    I know Bosher has been the holder for the last few years not sure if Harris is still the long snapper though?

    And I answered your question and told you yes, Josh Harris is still the long snapper as he has been for nearly 10 years now.

    Every kicker misses, the problem is he is been missing for 6 weeks. His head is screwed up. Big problem with Teveechio is he is missing during warm ups and games. He started thinking too much, you don’t want your kicker to do that. Matt Bryant did have some bad games but not for weeks.

    Yet you read his interviews and he knows exactly what is going on and why he's missing. Doesn't sound like a guy who's lost confidence and is now mentally unstable.
