He doesn't show up, as far as I could see, on pro football reference.

You can't be a rookie kicker and your job is to kick FG's and you make 1/6 in your first 2 games.

NO EXCUSES he needs to be cut now.

Random fact, Ravens kicker Justin Tucker missed a 50 and a 44 yarder this week. Just saying...it happens.

I doubt that if both were to be released today, the run would be on seeking Bullock's services.

I think he'll get a few more chances, it's a tough spot he's gotten nothing to build his confidence on almost every kick has been a tough one. I am not making excuses, but hopefully he can bounce back.

On a side note I don't think anyone has returned a kick this year, so he has leg strength, he just needs to get it together mentally.

Who knows but I'm willing to bet Bullock isn't cut this week (not that you're saying he will).

Kickers miss kicks, WRs dropspasses, RBs fumble, and QBs throw INT. It's the nature of the beast.

yeah, but I bet you've never seen a kicker miss 3 kicks in one possession! That takes some kind of special seasoning blend.

When Munchak called that last time out I thought he bailed us out....but Bullock outsmarted him and went 3 card Monty on us. That look on #4's face was even confusing me.

Guys, the funny thing is I saw 51-year-old Al Del Greco at HEB a few weeks ago. But I don't think he's going to start a comeback to the NFL anytime soon. He looks out of shape and fat. And he hasn't played in the league since 2000.

But in all seriousness, it seems like Gary Kubiak has a lot of faith in Randy Bullock and will continue to give him every opportunity judging by the post-game interview. I'm hoping he's just saying that because we can't afford to be missing so many field goals if we want to make a run to the Super Bowl.

I have my fingers crossed that Randy Bullock is just going through a slump and will turn it around very soon. Gig 'Em, Randy!

Sadly Toni Fritsch is no longer with us or we could send up the "Fritsch Signal" and have him come bail out another Houston football team.

Can we all agree that if you are a Texans fan, you hope this is an aberration and it is in the Texans best interest that Bullock gets straightened out?

Me thinks if you don't agree with this, you are an Aggie hater. I went to UT, love my school, but the Texans come first in my eyes.
