Yes, he has at least earned the description of "inconsistent". Which is an improvement upon "consistently bad".

He made good on every opportunity. That's all he can do and all I can hope for.

I think this little piece of fish is fried for now, on to bigger fishes.

So how long is this Kubiak Klown gonna milk McNair for everything he's got anyway?

Yup - it should at least get him out of the newswires and off the front pages of the forums for a week. It must be noted though, he does however still have the joint worst record in the NFL this season, and a poor game will likely get the attention back on him.

That said, as 3 of his 4 misses this season have been 50+ yarders, I'm not as panicky about the situation as others here are.

Wasn't really worried about the two chip shots he had (only kinda worried) but the 47 yarder was the one where I held my breath. Hopefully it continues.

Default Great talent in wrong places

The Texans have such great talent, what's wrong? We are weak in 2 of the most critical places—quarterback and place kicker.
The QB situation has been discussed enough; the head coach is too stubborn to replace him.
The kicker is inaccurate. Even on the field goals and PAT's he has made, he has often been uncomfortably off center, even on short FG's. He is not going to be all right despite what the optimists are telling us, and the head coach is too stubborn to replace him.

I don't know if it's a talent issue. I think the whole team needs refresher training on 3rd down conversions & why they're important.

Not sure how much the PK is really an issue. Yes he's 6/10. His missed FGs came from 50+ yards. After that he's been fine. I'm not willing to cut him for this yet. If he starts missing 30 yard kicks especially in critical situations then we need to reassess.

Default Re: Why aren't we trying to find a kicker?

We aren't trying to find a kicker because our head coach has a huge problem admitting that he's wrong. Some see this and think they're looking at someone who is being "loyal" or "believing in his guy" but it's just pig-headedness at its worst.

He wouldn't admit that Richard Smith couldn't coordinate a Pop Warner defense. Then he wouldn't admit that Frank Bush couldn't either.

He won't send Joe Marciano packing no matter how many years our special teams suck or how many good returners we send to other teams.

He won't admit that Matt Schaub is in steep decline and that it's past time for the Texans to move on.

And now he won't just come clean and accept that Bullock may have the leg for the NFL but he doesn't have the consistency or the ability to cope with pressure to succeed in the NFL.

The Texans aren't trying to find a kicker for the same reason that they never try to fix any of the real problems that plague this team. Gary.

We should have lost to the Titans last week, and wouldn't have even been in that position if it wasn't for all those missed kicks.
Well, its on me. I didn't put him in a better position. My call didn't help him out and I have to worry about Tate's fumble and our bad defense...

when you have no problem playing a QB that gives away 6 points you probably aren't concerned with a player that gives away a mere 3.

Earlier in the game, he nailed that 50 yard kick- hitting it so pure that the draw didn't work back into the goal until 5 yards past when it smacked into the net. Literally, that 50 yard miss would have been good from 65 yards.

I am worried as well. But, assuming the worst case scenario is not the way to lead a football team. My guess is that if his struggles continue, they will find a roster spot for a second kicker... similar to what New Orleans did a few years ago with Hartley when he was young and inconsistent.

Kickers get replaced all the time. It's not like they have to learn the play book. If we get to the point where they feel it's time to move on, we'll move on. Right now they feel like it's time to show their support for him, to nurture him.

I can imagine Bullock using that game as motivation for the rest of the season & using it to kick the game winning kick in the Super Bowl.

Yes he's missed some long ass kicks. He's also made the opponent go 80 yards instead of 50. So far this year, 11% (1 of 9) kickoffs have been returned. Last year? 70% (28 of 87).

I really hope that all of you typical sunshiners are happy after this game. Yeah, this kicker really turned things around this season. He has only just blown two games now where he missed like 7 FG's between both losses. Just ignore the glaring problems and expect them to get better just because. Good god this reminds me of the 9-7 season where everyone kept talking about both Browns turning things around just because as well. Same fans defending the same failures.
