Kickoffs were generally lower than you'd like, not giving special teams enough time to get down and cover. By contrast Blair Walsh has one of the bigger kickoff legs in the league and he put one through the uprights but had another fielded at the -3.
The 54 yard miss landed on the back chalk margin of the end zone and would have missed left or at best bounced left off the left upright.
Color me concerned..... and watching Kickalicious
Hopefully this doesn't turn into another Kris Brown situation. You know, the one where the K stinks and gets to keep his job due to favoritism.
We should be concerned by any rookie kicker. Particularly one that Coach Joe endorses, much less an inconsistent rookie K. Why competition wasn't brought in at the K position baffles me.
