11/11 with a 58 yarder in "game like" situations is better than some kickers have done, I'm sure.

Bullock's only two misses this TC were off the uprights, from 49 yards out.

Kick-offs have been deep; everything sounds pretty positive; or at the very least, it doesn't sound negative at all.

Nothing I saw last night gave me the warm and fuzzies.

Hit a 48 and 21 yd FG......and missed miserably at 54.

His KOs could be at best described as inconsistent.

Nothing I've seen from Bullock at this point makes me believe that he can kick the ball out of the EZ whenever called upon to do so.........or that Kubiak has any reason now to not only turn away and close his eyes, but also to cringe every time Bullock attempts to make a FG from 50 yds out. Remember, in his entire career, he's hit only 3 of 5 FGs >49 (50 [2009], 50 [2010], 52 [2011])

Default Re: Texans whistling past the graveyard at Kicker

I didn't get to see the 54 yard attempt thanks to the abomination of a telecast last night, but on the kickoffs that he didn't rip through the end zone I'd venture to guess it was by design to give the special teams the work. Not that you'd need to work ST if you kick every ball through the end zone, but the only way some of these players make this team will be from what they can add to ST, so you've got to get a look at them.

So, I'm not too worried about Bullock at the moment.

Kickoffs were fielded -6, out of the end zone on the fly, fielded at the 1, fielded -7, not fielded out of the end zone, low line drive knuckleball fielded on the fly at the 5.

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.

Me too,

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.

In another thread, I posted what I saw when I slowed the action and zoomed in. It appeared as though the ball actually hit the inside of the "K" in the EZ "Vikings" marking, making it ~ 1/2 the distance within the EZ (~5 yds into the 10 yd-deep EZ, then bouncing to the chalk line).........and outside the left goal post. He essentially missed the FG by at least 5 yds in distance and outside of the goal posts.

With his college stats and what I've seen thus far with him in college and with the Texans, I have strong concerns about his leg and especially distance.

Walsh was actually who I wanted in that draft, but I figured we'd go with the A&M guy. That said, I'm not sour on bullock just yet. I think he'll be fine, but I guess we'll see...

So much for the question of leg strength. Three kickoffs for touch backs, and a 48 and 55yd field goal.

Well, he's no Greg "Legatron" Zuerlein, but then who is? As CND said, very promising. Let's see it when it counts.

One question because my memory sucks. Does his attempts always shade to the right or was that just the way it happened today? After both of those kicks I suddenly realized I was sitting down horizontally on my left side....lol.

Personally, I didn't like the kickoffs. Very low, no hangtime.

If he's going for the back of the endzone.... fine. But I wouldn't have him going for the back of the endzone.

Are we all to the consensus that, for the most part, most of our preseason worries are calmed w/ regards to the kicker?

I liked what I saw. Hopefully him and Lechler look like this all season and we have found some new STs guys for years to come.

Where would you have the kicker going for if it wasnt the back of the endzone?
