There's a reason he was available. Still he wouldn't be the first kicker to ever get iced like that. Hopefully Bullock comes through for us next season and we can address the position on a more permanent basis.

That End of Regulation FG attempt was terrible. Not giving me much confidence heading into the final stretch of our season.

Much less where 3 points in the playoffs are huge. It almost cost us a game today & probably will at some point this season. Hopefully not in the playoffs, but odds are it will be.

Definitely need to upgrade kickers. This is just not going to work come playoff time.

At this point I'd even be open to giving Kris Brown a call for a tryout. At least he can hit from 50+

Lets not put it all on him.

Andre made a huge play.

Kubiak gets the ball and runs it twice, he pretty much settled for a 40 yard FG, it ends up being a 42 yard attempt which he drills...if only the team didn't false start...

47 yard kick now that is easily missable. I think you need to K.Y.P, Know Your Personnel, Graham isn't one of the best kickers in the NFL. Those guys would have drilled it either way...so you should have tried to get as close as possible.

That's besides the point. He's a liability, and he can't be relied upon in big games in the playoffs. You have to try and give someone else a chance. It's gone on far too long, I hope he's replaced soon.

I'd agree with you but there simply aren't kickers available in FA right now that can hit every 50 yarder and kick the ball through the EZ on kickoffs. Graham unfortunately is the best option we have.

Well there are not a lot of kickers in the NFL that can consistently drill kicks in the 50 yard range.

Can't kick from 50 yards. Not clutch. What a combination..



hated this signing from the beginning.

Bullock could make a tremendous impact on special teams next year if he is what we think he is. Better field position, threat of long field goals, did I mention better field position? Also, better field position.

That's true.

I just hope it doesn't come down to special teams in a big game. It's the biggest glaring weakness of this team.
