What has that have to do with Pats talent and ability to kick field goals? He faced those conditions in college.
He is also listed as an emergency back up quarterback. I have also seen him play and practice linebacker in camp.
I don't think you grasp how good of a player he really is by judging him as just a punter.
On the play where Patrick Robinson intercepted Marcus Mariotta, the Titans were able to keep the ball and gain yards.
A penalty was assessed to Josh McMary for a hit on Delanie Walker.
Anyway.... McNary has now put out a public apology via instagram. It's all part of an ESPN story that has other quotes as well.
Punting & FG kicking are not the same thing. Not even close. There's a reason these are 2 separate Special Teams positions & never the same guy for both roles unless your main guy is sidelined with an injury & the back guy must pull double duty out of necessity.
Aiming a football deep in enemy territory & factoring in field conditions for a long FG in rain, sleet, snow, wind, & fog are not the same thing. It's a while different animal especially in the playoffs.
Adam V. having so many consecutive FG kicks without a miss is remarkable & if both Pat & Adam switched roles tomorrow for the next 2 yrs, do you think they could match each others records of streaks? Nope. That's why they are called specialists for what they do.
The problem Fisher has is this.....
The Rams paid a boat load to move up and take..................... Jared Goff.
Now, they've hit the bye-week at 3-4 with a 3 game losing streak and with two weeks to prepare for their next opponent, Fisher announced at the end of their loss Sunday in London that he was sticking with Case Keenum. He made a preemptive announcement before any reporter could even ask. So, he's pained himself into a bit of a corner.
Not only does it look like he and the GM picked the wrong guy, but Wentz is doing really well, as is Dak Prescott, and Goff appears to be struggling and that's putting it mildly.
All this when Fisher is up for a new deal. And just before Fisher could sign his name, it appears things are now on hold........
