sorry, skimming thru post where you responded "i agree" to a post that started with "graham should win the job". re-read and it seems you were agreeing to the notion that bullock shouldnt make the team solely on the fact that hes a draftpick.

I wish they'd let one guy kick an entire preseason game. Next preseason game, the other guy kicks the whole game.

Give a guy a whole game and all attempts. Right???

Couldn't we learn more than swapping em out all game long? Let them feel like its all on them for a whole game.

I guess the only problem is what if there aren't many kick attempts in a game? What if you kick 6 times in game 1 and dont have a fg attempt at all in game 2. At least by switching off you give both guys a chance to get some kicks.

For those who watched A&M games last year, did Bullock have a weak leg on kickoffs as an Aggie?

Bullock is beginning to irratate me with his short kick offs. If he keeps that crap up, I'd just as soon keep Graham.

Not sure I agree.

I'd rather the kicker who is a bit short on kickoffs than the guy who misses game winning field goals.

So far, I'm leaning Graham. Bulluck just hasn't done anything that makes me think he was worth a 5th round pick.

I really don't see how its a question at this point. Graham was asked to come in and compete. If its really a fair and open competition Graham has won at this point. We still have another game left but right now Bullock is the odd man out. We'll just have to vomit that 5th round pick if it comes down to it.

I'd rather vomit the 5th round pick than have to live with the mistake for an extended period of time. We've seen too many players make the team because of their draft status just go on to suck.

Drafted the wrong kicker.

The guy with the bigger leg drafted after Bullock plinks 55 & 52 yarders tonight.

Yeah, I would too but I was also thinking that maybe Kubiak told Graham: "We'll bring you in to compete, but the kid will have to completely throw up over himself in the preseason for us to keep you. Sound like a deal"

I would hope thats not the case and Bullock hasn't been bad so far. He just hasn't been better than Graham. Both of them suck at kickoffs, but Graham has had a bigger and more accurate leg if you base it on their total resumes thus far. I'm going by practices as well.

Just out of courtesy, when Kubiak announces Bullock stays, would you kindly turn away from me before you let it rip?

Kubiak will choose the kid, I bet a million fake dollars on it.

Graham is the veteran, he has made his kicks and he's had no glitchy leg at all.

But hey, last year Kubiak cut Hartmann and kept Maynard as Punter...after the 3rd preseason game. Then Maynard crapped all over himself in the final preseason game and so Kubiak cut Maynard and brought back Hartmann.

So we're talking about a great potential for us to cut the wrong guy, with no guarantee that the right guy will then make it back to our roster. Yay.
