has a hitch in his giddy-up. if anyone has cumulative tape over the last 3 seasons please post examples and by all means send them to the front office. i'm paused at half time so i'm a bit behind play at the moment, but i've made an effort to focus on the entire mechanics of his first half field goals and i stand completely behind what i said last week ...

"kris brown's flaws are in his steps. for much of his career he's had a "hitch in his giddy-up" taking a bounce with the steps. for most of last season and early in this season he's long strided and taken sure footed quick steps, almost appearing that he's removed a stride from his wind-up. in the past few games he's bouncing again, similar to kickoff form or when a kicker or soccer player would try to add extra distance. i've deleted this game from DVR already so i cant go back and look, but kris doesnt need the rocket - his distance from 50+ is more than adequate. he needs to short plant and focus."

for those recording today's game, watch especially his first field goal attempt. kris brown needs to appear as if he's taking two deliberate steps forward - imagine a calm "one, two, kick". instead he's bounding on approach and that is randomizing his plant foot, where a single inch can move the ball 5-10 yards at it's summit.

now that i've said something he'll assuredly contradict me by kicking a 58 yard game winner (woohoo!), but from everything i'm personally observing (and while a kicker myself, i wont be confused with an expert) kris brown's flaws are in his steps.
