The entire kicking unit was a failure today.  I'm sure we will be on the market for a new special teams coach next year as well as a kicker.

They should be and it’s not just because of the kicking game.  The return game is as much of a disaster.  They constantly field punts inside the 10, today they grabbed a kickoff that was going out of bounds rather than taking the flag.  They have had issues with guys not getting away from the ball and miscommunication on who is returning that has lead to turnovers.  That is not a well coached unit.

He missed 1 kick today and that was a 55 yarder, so I don't blame him unlike other days.  Two were blocked and that's on the line.  I've said all season that the entire kicking unit is very suspect.  Today showed it again.

Not consistent, that's one of the problems AV has.  The others, JB and Reich. JB can't throw worth a lick, Reich can't coach worth a damn.

Extremely low. As in lousy kick low.

So if we lose out, where will that get us, the top 5? That'll definitely give us a franchise/elite QB.

Yes because it's that easy.

We will be holding kicking tryouts again this week.  And again, it will be Vinny's decision if anyone is good enough to replace him.   :monkeydance:

Plus, it was badly pulled and hooking. Would have missed it had it not been blocked.

Top 5 doesn’t guarantee ya squat in the draft.

I can't stand to see him come on the field in a close game.

The first blocked kick was so low it didn't look like it was going anywhere.

 

I could be wrong, but I think that was on AV.

Could be.  I don't have the gumption yet to watch it again.

The Colts have always had a top-notch kicker.

 

Hopefully next year they will have one.

If the second one didn’t get blocked it was going to be Vandrjagted just wide left.

    • You can see separate instances where he escapes and delivers the ball downfield in a highlight video, but that's not the norm(like with other attributes it's not about absolutes - you can find film of most of those players doing almost anything (both good and bad)- the question is about the frequency and consistency of good vs bad, etc). Watch some full game cut ups(there are tons of them on YouTube) and you are going to see what I'm talking about. It's very visible with Fromm IMO.
    • I just watched a video of him showing pocket presence, scrambling ability and he was pretty mobile. So He is obviously capable of it. It seems he keeps his eyes downfield till the last possible moment. Idk. I also saw videos where he threw completions for 55 yards and one for 60. Anyway, Arm strength can also be helped. Learning to throw with your lower body. It’s the accuracy and processing stuff that too few QBs have and he seems to have it. He might not be a first rounder but I think he might be like Russel Wilson. A good QB that didn’t possess typical height, etc..
    • I feel like the combine will tell alot. I think he will only run in the mid 4.5s. He doesn't have great long speed. Im not sure about his short area quickness either, he flashes quickness in and out of his breaks in space when he is allowed a free release, but he often struggles to separate against press man. He does have great size and catch radius though. He is a tricky evaluation, he has so much production, but alot of it is against unranked teams. I can see why he could fall out of the first, in a deep WR class.
    • This is hard one. There are so many great players in this class... I will also assume you don't want us to include positional value in this.    Chase Young Jeffrey Okudah Joe Burrow Isaiah Simmons   The fifth one is extremely hard for me. I can argue for like... 5-6 players here... Derrick Brown, Lamb, Jeudy, Andrew Thomas, Jedric Wills... hell... even Tristan Wirfs needs to be in this discussion, even though he will probably be RT, he will be a great one IMO. I think I will go with Jerry Jeudy here as my last one.
