Did you know he used to kick field goals in college?

Did you also know he made all his field goals and missed only one extra point his senior year?

Yup

13/13 field goals w/ a long of 55 yards

49/50 on extra points

Just sayin'

I’d wish Ballard had thought of this. The missing link, already on the team.

  I know we'll hear; "Punting and placekicking?? That's too much to expect for one man."....George Blanda, in his 40's, played QB and had the placekicking duties. I'm pretty sure the training regimens in the 40's, 50's, 60's. and 70's wasn't as sophisticated as it is today.....Give Rigo a shot. What have we got to lose?

As of now, Rigo could hold and kick at the same time and our FG situation would be upgraded.

Does beg the question if there are any decent punters out there to get through the year.

Spencer Evans was pretty good, holds the Kicker accuracy and strength records for Purdue. Think he last tried out for the Bears but didn’t get it, so maybe not good enough for the Pros?

 I think you missed my post. I'm saying, let him do both.

I'm guessing a serviceable punter/holder to take over those duties is easier to find than a decent place kicker.

That is too big of risk as one injury wipes you out.  Plus that is a lot of wear and tear because they also have to kickoff.

Wear and tear? They kick thousands of times in practice, a few more kicks in a game is nothing.

 

A two and one kick/punter is a deviant idea as of now in the NFL. Also, and mainly, it's just hard to be good enough in one at the NFL level, let alone both.

I thought he would be the PK by now.  Sorry coaching and strategy.

Sanchez hasn't even done a good job punting and holding for Vinny this season...

 

I was just talking to a friend about how I haven't been impressed with his punting ability. He's got to be around in the bottom or at least below average in avg yards per punt. He definitely doesn't switch that field position on a team as much as one would like. 

 

But hey, if he's an accurate place kicker, why not.

He is 21 but all the punters are pretty close so the rank doesn’t mean much.

Have AV hold for him and let Sanchez try the PAT's. Then AV try kicking the longer FG's.

 

You know, less "wear and tear"

I would be in favor of letting Sanchez kick the extra points.  Let Adam do the field goals.  That would give us a fighting chance and he could still be part of the team.  But would Adam go along with it if presented to him?   Something tells me that would be a hard pill for him to swallow.

He is so hit and miss, which is not good in a 16 game NFL season. When he's punting around midfield, I feel like we have one of the better punters (even though with Frank, we are more likely to just go for it on 4th down in that scenario), as Rigo has done a nice job this season many times and letting guys like Dulin pin it inside the 3 yard line. Then when we are backed deep in our own territory, especially during crucial defensive stretches where you want to flip the field, he puts up a dud that most big program college punters can beat. It's just hit and miss. 

 

This ongoing field goal fiasco is a lot on Vinny, but Sanchez hasn't been great at holding which stems from Rhodes being unbelievably bad this season on fieldgoals. Unbelievably bad. They are doing Vinny no favor to get out of this slump. 

 

Now to say Sanchez should kick is not even a question. Vinny is not going to hold field goals for someone else. He'd rather quit tomorrow, and that's not going to happen apparently under Ballard/Reich, so we can move on from it. Why not just go for two every time and let Vinny strictly kick fieldgoals that are high percentage for him based on distance/field spot, and ONLY when 4th and medium to long. It's getting to the point where our 4th down and two point conversion ratings are better odds than Vinny kicking.

Sure wouldn't hurt to check that out in practice.

 

Do you honestly believe they have not seen him kick PATs and FGs in practice?

    • Oh, that's what I fear, for sure.  But even if that's the case.... What's the long term solution?  Who starts at QB in whatever city they have to play in in 2030?  Jk.... slightly.... That damage won't be undone soon, or easily.... Surrounding talent won't fix his issues, just raise the floor a game or two.
    • Oh, the players already know that, regardless of who starts jn The present, past, future, they are well aware JB isn't a true #1 leader at the qb going forward.  Stop gap? Sure... If there's an endgame.
    • This list does not fit the narrative you are trying to put forward.  Only 2 would even be close and even they had chances.    Browns and Redskins don't even count; they are dysfunctional franchises who had plenty of chances but couldn’t get out of their own way.   Dolphins, Titans, and Bears all could have had good QBs if not for trying for retreads, sticking with a player too long (Mariota, Tannehill), and/or missing when they had good players available to draft (Ryan, Mahomes, Watson). Also jury still out on Trubisky.   Vikings and Broncos have not had the best luck with QBs lately, but they have also lingered in the mediocre to good record zone a lot which doesn't help them getting a high draft pick for QB . They also got a few good seasons out of retreads which helped them in the short term, but not the long term. Although in the Broncos case I am sure they will take their SB with PM.   I will give you the Jets, they have had some bad luck. When they did have good picks there wasn’t much available; although jury still out on Darnold (also they could have taken Lamar Jackson). Buffalo also had some bad luck for a few years, but they also blew their chance to draft Mahomes (though Allen may still turn into something).   During the last few years all these teams have had periods where they had a player/or players  as good or better than JB and it didn't amount to much other than keeping them from a top draft pick. If you don't have an very good - elite QB you are just playing the lottery hoping for one of those all the stars perfectly aligned runs that rarely happen.
    • Thanks for this.   My favorite part is his tackle at 5:30.  
    • Not a big deal.     Brissett puts fans in an odd position.   He is almost the definition of average.  His QB rating is average.  His yards per game is below average but his INT % is above average.  So I can understand supporters and detractors.
