Default Re: Texans whistling past the graveyard at Kicker

Those are veterans. Randy Bullock is on game 2 of his career. If Kubiak wants to set up Bullock for statistical success, he will have him kick from the 25 instead of the 40. But Kubiak obviously wants him to develop into a 50 yard kicker, and he is putting Bullock in tough situations in order to learn.
It would be nice to ease him into pressure situations by letting him kick gimmes first but game situations seldom cooperate with that sort of plan.

If it's technique that can be analyzed and fixed. If it's truly mental, he may be in trouble.
