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.

    • I like Walker have since we drafted him. I also believe we are real solid at the LB position.
    • My views on those points.    Disagree. He was below average first half of the season and he was rock bottom the second half. For whatever it's worth I think his injury probably impacted his mechanics and accuracy in the second half so he might be closer to the QB from the first half of the season. Still not good enough.   Agree. Those stats were not what I've had most issues with. His stats overstate his play because of very favorable playcalling in the first half of the season when he amassed a ton of TDs from within 5 yards of the endzone. Which is valuable and not something to be easily discarded, but also not something sustainable... which... got shown off in the second half of the season.    This would be an interesting poll to run. I've been seeing more and more people entertaining  bargain bin future QBs which IMO points to them not taking the task of finding the future QB seriously enough and possibly having some hopes about Jacoby. It's possible the % of people willing to give JB another shot might be higher than 10%.   What do you consider "bashing JB"? I don't see many posts that I would consider bashing Brissett. I agree he doesn't suck, but I also don't think he's average.      Cheers 
    • Brissett is terrible 30 INT's is worst than terrible that's trash.
    • Yes and no.     The losses versus Houston and Tenn were very bad, our health played a very big part in that. We would have gotten massacred against anybody in the playoffs had we made it. Now if Brissett played well consistently I’d say we had a chance to go on a run like the Titans, but with him stinking the place up and our secondary being decimated, along with losing Turay, allows me to believe otherwise.
