Default Re: Help Wanted...Kicker

I dont think I have ever had a game like this, Bullock said. It was frustrating, but at this point all I can do is move forward and come back for more work this week.

The 23-year old kicker, nicknamed Iron Boot for his leg strength, has since received encouragement from within the organization. Bullock told head coach Gary Kubiak that chairman and CEO Bob McNair talked to him after the game, offering support. According to Kubiak, a kicker needs to know that his team has confidence in him.

You watch your locker room as a coach and I know our guys respect Randy, Kubiak said. Hes a worker. Hes not some guy who comes in here and kicks his few balls and calls it a day. He works really hard at what he does and hes young. Were going young with him and were going to stand behind him. Like I said, hes got a job to do. Hes responsible for his job. But were going to give him a lot of help. His teammates are going to support him. Im going to support him and weve got to get him going in the right direction here.

Bullock , who is one-for-five on field goal attempts, has eight touchbacks on nine kickoffs and six extra points this season. Three-of-four missed attempts were from 50 yards or greater.

Im sure hed be much happier if he got to kick some 30- and 35-yarders, Kubiak said Monday. We take that into consideration. But hes got to make that kick to end the game yesterday. Thats his job. But there are three people involved in that: the snap, the hold and the kick. And weve all got to take responsibility and get better and they will. Weve got confidence in Randy. Well see if we can get him a little bit closer. But we expect him to step up and be strong here and work through this and do a good job for us.

As it stands now, I'd also be much happier if he got to kick some 30- and 35-yarders.
