    I don't know, him applying makeup to his inner thigh and tweeting a picture of it to fake a groin injury sounds a lot sketchier than just having an injury that kept him out the whole year.

    Bullock needs to show some power on those kicks because last year his distance left a little to be desired.

    Great. Our kicker wears makeup. Don't let any of the other teams know about this. [IMGwidthsize=40]http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/images/smilies/toropalm.gif[/IMG]

    wait what? His leg was light years stronger than Grahams. Just a touch less accurate. His kickoffs were BOMBS

    I wouldn't say they were bombs. Of the 12 kickoffs Bullock had, only 6 made it past the goal line, deepest being 6 yards deep, and every single one of the 12 was returned.

    Everything depends on whether the "strain" on 8/7/12 was part of the same groin issue that put him on the sidelines on 8/26/12 or not. I have to think it was the beginning of his end.

    NFL gamebook.

    Considering that 4 of his 1st five KO's crossed the goal line while 5 of his last 7 didn't, there may be something to that.

    Pretty sure he wasn't injured. We had an alright vet and a rookie that could use some time.

    My specualtion is that he was hurt somewhat, not season ending type hurt, but enough to 'redshirt" him w/o too much league poking around.

    From what I remember he had a minor injury very early on and then over time injured it even worse, resulting in his placement on IR. He tweeted a picture of it and looks just like muscle tear/pull would. Probably would explain his lack of power later on in preseason. Conspiracy averted. :swatter:

    How was his kicking power in college?

    The picture he tweeted last year was consistent with an adductor muscle tear.....consistent with at least a significant Grade II tear (possibly Grade III). [​IMG]

    His 8/26/12 tear was simply an extension of his 8/7/12 tear.........in the same leg......his right kicking leg. He evidently tried to play through the initial injury and it worked out just as well as it did for Brooks Reed. These extension injuries, if not given adequate rest and rehab initially, notoriously and predictably extend and become recurrent and progressive over a period of months, even if then properly treated thereafter. An acute tear can easily become a chronic tear, one that can take 3-6 months of slow, careful rehab in order to safely return and stay on the field.

    As far as pre-injury leg strength, in college, he was never known as a "boomer." He was known for his accuracy under 50yds. Nor was he ever truly in any significant number of games to prove a "clutch" reputation. In fact, as I see it, his "booming leg strength" label has been virtually manufactured and hyped by Kubiak and the Texans F.O.
