in my opinion the least important part of the kick is the kick itsself. it's all about the approach - step, plant, swing. you have to be balanced and you have to be accurate with your plant foot. this is even more important when you're struggling. players often get too worried about the situation and lose their form, or they try to adjust instead of getting the simple mechanics right. much like chuck hayes who could shoot freethrows in college, but looked like he was having a seizure by the end of his pro career.

it's my conclusion that he's got too much to fix. he cant calm his mind enough to perform in stressful situations, and he has mechanical flaws as well that will be very difficult to iron out. as such he's probably going to be pretty streaky his entire career.

Again, I think this shows that Marciano needs to go. You've got a kicker with a great leg, but who doesn't have someone telling him his swing flaws. I think we need to get rid of everyone on ST except Lechler in the offseason. Bullock can stay to improve our draft status.

It's very likely that is the thinking going on in the front office.

Perhaps Gary and Rick believe that Marciano is incapable of fixing the
flaws, but someone else might...

Maybe they go with another ST coach in the offseason believing that
Bollocks is a keeper with the right coaching..

I'd love to know what radio frequency you use to pick up Smithiak's mindwaves, because all I'm getting is static.

I picked it up pre stroke.. If you tune in now, static is all you get..

Seriously though, if you look at Jacoby and Trindon, it's not
all that unfathomable to think that Gary and Rick could conceive
of the Bollocks issue being related to poor tutelage.

How about have him work on kicking before getting his big ass down the field faster. Imo, he threw Marciano under the bus with these comments

Quote:
James Palmer ‏@JPalmerCSN 33m
Randy Bullock said he's been working the last weeks at being faster to the ball. #Texans have been telling him to get down field quicker.

Think about THESE impressive numbers:

1] Only 48.5 percent of his kickoffs have been touchbacks. 25th in NFL

2] He hasn't made any of his four tries from 50 yards or more.
