Rigoberto Sanchez

Recommended Posts

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.

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?

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

 

 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.

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?

    • Burrow was not thought of this highly early(when Ballard was rumored to like Herbert and Love). It was kind of an avalanche that was gaining more and more mass and power the more games got played. I don't think it was until November-December that people started talking about Burrow as a no. 1 pick. He just never had that body of work before this year and a lot of his most impressive games and against best opponents were at the end of the year.        I've heard Brady thrown around, but no idea if there is anything real behind those rumors. The rumors say that they are having hard time attracting any fans to their games and their owners think getting a legend like Brady to play for several years for them might jump start their new fanbase in LA. No idea whether to believe this or not. 
    • To me being a boom or bust is kind of a plus for a QB, because the worst you can be is mediocre once that rookie contract comes to an end. I would prefer for whoever we draft to be either great or horrible and for us to know relatively quickly so we can either invest in him or move on quickly. This is part of the appeal with Love for me. The things he needs to improve are heavily coaching based and I think we will have a good idea of where on the spectrum he will end up pretty quickly. For example - if you draft him and he's not ready to start by year 2, this is a red flag and you might start looking for another one. If 2 off-seasons and 1 in-season period are not enough for your coaching staff to get him ready you either have made a mistake with the draft pick or with your coaching staff and I do have good trust in the coaching staff so... 
    • For me the tiers are more important the the specific ranking... I rank players within a tier very similarly and even though I would have preferences within them, I don't feel strongly enough to argue one over the other.    Tier 1(sell the farm for him - i.e. multiple 1sts, multiple day 2 picks, etc) Burrow   Tier 2 (trade a significant asset for him - i.e. a future 1st round pick) Tua(if I have medical guarantees he'd be alright health-wise)   Tier 3 (trade a medium level asset for him(i.e. a second, a third...) or take him at #13) Love Herbert Tua(if our medical staff cannot give you any guarantees whatsoever either way -for example, there were some reports that it might be too early before the draft to tell whether he will be good or not)   Tier 4 (second round) Eason Fromm     Tier 5 (third-fourth round) Gordon(have to do more work on him, might change his ranking) Hurts   Tier 6 (round 5-7) Tua(if the medicals come bad and there is high risk of reinjury/retirement/not full recovery/etc.) Tyler Huntley Nate Stanley     I'm still watching some QBs so that's not my final ranking. 
    • Hey....    we’ve all had those whoops moments.    Comes with the territory.    I’ve had some whoppers!
