Kubiak is putting him out there because the offense stalled and its 4th down. The Texans need the points and Bullock is the kicker. Kubiak is not developing Bullock with games on the line. He is a kicker for crying out loud. That's all he does. The mental part is all on Bullock. Either he handles the pressure or chokes but he is not out there to develop with games on the line. Can he learn from it? Lets hope so but I guarantee you he is on a short leash after yesterday.
yeah, no learning on the job for kickers. Ask Ian "there's no crying in football" Howfield.

I did have some Skip Butler Oiler flashbacks yesterday though. Rare when a player can conjure the Skip Butler imagery of the ball matriculating wide left with the game on the line.
