How did the 49ers and Falcons manage the short term production from their kickers so far? I do not believe in the fact that there aren’t decent options out there, the coaches and GM aren’t willing to make the move, and are too afraid to take chances.
I agree that he's never been a precise technician, but last year, he played with a lot of power and consistently executed his assignments in both the running and passing game. I've watched him super closely this year only because of what the Colts ended up paying him. I was also curious to see how he'd be affected by the scheme change this year.
Here's how Glowinski graded out at the end of '18, relative to Kelly and Nelson.
G Quenton Nelson (G6, 74.3)
G Mark Glowinski (G10, 72.7)
C Ryan Kelly (C8, 69.9)
He was a top 10 guard last year, per PFF. His contract extension was a little generous, but I didn't complain too much because I thought he would only get better.
With the way he's played this year, I'm hoping last year wasn't just a fluke.
