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.

The second kick was really low...

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.

    • This either tells me that they are making a lot plays or people are getting to our next level with ease.  The way our DLine played this year, it's probably the latter.     I'm proud of these guys.  Once we get our Dline straight, we'll see them elevate to another level.
    • UNFAIR comparison.   We literally lost our franchise player the week before Game 1 of the season.
    • Maybe.  Just thinking for myself.  If I was a ticket holder, I'd be more interested in investing in the ground level of a team that had a new young QB and to be a part of their growth.  Our own LA team.  A true LAC rather than a leftover SD QB who didn't want to be here or a leftover NE QB who's here just because of personal reasons.  Herbert's a west coast native too.  Just thinking about where I would place my allegiances. 
    • Eason, Fromm, and Tua were not available to be evaluated during SB week, so its an Incomplete for them through 1/26/2020.    I guess Burrow had a good season and is the consensus #1 pick.  Nobody has suggested that he might be available for the Colts, so I really haven't looked at him much.  Based on the QBs I paid attention too:   Herbert Love Gordon.   Herbert is a plug in day 1 starter right now, and can learn on the job.  Love and Gordon need some developmental work on how to play the game, IMO, and will cost a team too many games if inserted day 1 at this point in their development.  Gordon is probably ahead of Love at this point in terms of day 1 readiness, but might be held back due to physicality issues.  I'm not too interested in Gordon.   The combine will tell us more, and either assuage or enhance physicality concerns for the QBs.
