You don't remember him being iced at the end of the Titans game, well, before he missed a few times, made one that didn't count and sent us to OT?

They had faith in a guy they hand selected, gave him a chance to put a poor start behind him, which he was starting to do, but after yesterday, it obviously hasn't panned out, as the fans (and likely his teammates) confidence in him is absoutely shot.

Perhaps cutting him after week 3 like you were soliciting would have resulted in another kicker making those field goals last night, but who knows. I think it is clear, even at this relatively early stage in his professional career, that he is going to struggle with the job, and despite the obvious physical tools he has, the mental aspect of the job seems to be too much for him to handle.

The only reason I think he'll stick around, is as others mentioned, as the season is realistically done now - and why shoulder the extra cost, and loss of draft picks of brining in a veteran kicker.

Texans had a 96 percent chance of winning when Bullock lined up for that field goal up 24-12 with 11 minutes to go. http://live.advancednflstats.com/ind...id1=2013110310

That was all fine and dandy, but there was nothing wrong with bringing in other guys to challenge him in practice to see if they had other options out there that might have been better. They neglected to even think about doing that which was the same thing a few years ago when Brown was struggling horribly. Kubiak didn't learn from that and made the same mistake. Why can I see these things as a fan and a 8 year HC can't?

I never solicited to cut him after that week. I solicited to bring in other kickers which was the title of the thread I started. I wanted Bullock to have to compete to keep his job. If he would have won then so be it. He wasn't challenged to keep his job though which was the same problem with Schaub going into this season.

Well the signs were there prior to this week. Why do we once again have to wait for the train wreck to happen before we prepare and make adjustments?

It really doesn't matter at this point. This is just another failure of a season under a regime that continues to coddle players like this for to long and they kill them team's chances.

Default Re: All Encompassing FIRE Randy Bullock

Let me preface my remarks by saying "I can NOT kick a field goal!" free to quote me on that. I can't make a TEN yard field goal. I wouldn't make it unto a HIGHSCHOOL team as a kicker, much less a college one and the thought of me being a kicker in the pros is BEYOND laughable". I AM however of the opinion that if you're BLESSED enough to have the god given talent to kick a football straight for 50+ yards then you should be paid a kings ransom to do it for someone's football team. If you lack that ability, then you should be either in the stands or WATCHING AT HOME like the rest of us.

The way I see it, if you get four attempts to kick a fieldgoal and you make one You fall into catagory 2. I'm no math whiz (as I AM quite stupid) but the way I figure it that's an accuracy rating of 25% IF you were evaluated at work at your rating was 25%, would YOU still have a job?

FIRE this club-footed MUFF-HUGGA!

My apologies to anyone who actually has a club foot

But on the plus side, I no longer get nervous before and during important field goal attempts, since I now just assume they will all be missed.
