Should Falcons be concerned at Kicker?

133 posts in this topic

Taveechio was almost 50/50 today for FG over 42 yards. He struggled kicking from the right hash from both ends. Either it was bad day or he is work in progress. He better not go in to mental slump, with Kickers it’s all in the head.

no. period.

I like you so I'll say this, don't be another one of these punk "oooooh, I'm so nervous" dudes. in the HOF game every single snap was too high and Bosher barely got the ball down before the kick. just put the energy out there that he's gonna hit every kick when the bullets go live.

With kickers, it’s usually their heads that become the issue, not their legs. Italian Ice clearly has the leg, last year going 5/5, you just don’t want him miss a few easy ones and get &$# up in the head about it. 

Who was it, Feely or one of our kickers who looked great for a while and started missing everything and we let him go.

Jason Elam, the guy who won games in 2008 and fizzled out in 2009. Yeah, hoping its just bad day not something in his head.

He’s a left footed kicker. It seems he would have to get a little more push to the left from the right hash opposed to booting It and letting It hook from the left hash. 

 

I have to ask, how does someone go 100% and struggle??

It may just be preseason jitters, but if he keeps missing it will start messing up the head. 

I think it’s more of angle than extra push, all the missed kicks went wide right. It was like watching a curve ball.

Were those kicks closer or further back?

Most of them From 42 yards to 50. He was hitting 55 yarders from left hash.

I guess we better keep Julio on the left side on third and long

You said he was 50 for 50. Do you mean he missed all of his long kicks?

Ol’ Blair Walsh was the same. He drilled kicks at seahawks camp when I was there then choked in the regular season.
