    Re: Tuck is 1/5 this season on FGs of 50 or more

    But yeah, I was all for pinning them inside the 10 there.
    The Browns pass rush was ferocious all game, but Lamar is sitting in the pocket waiting for a play to develop. Just a complete failure on the coaching and for Lamar not recognizing that the Ravens needed to start calling quick short passes.

    They have both Flowers and Keaton who can make something out on a three yard pass.

    I would agree that would be the most ideal outcome lol.

    Today I saw what looked like a bad block by Ben Cleveland.
    Was the kick lower than it ought to have been?
    Did Tucker take more time to approach the kick?
    To my eye, the snap was also high and Stout did a good job handling it but it might have messed with the timing a bit. In any event, missed makeable FGs and blocked kicks are likely to kill a team in a close game. The whole kicking ST unit has work to do to prevent these mistakes.

    I donít think decline is the right word, but this year, I donít feel anything from 50-56 or so is automatic like I used to. Heís not only missing, but heís getting them blockedÖprobably partly on him not getting the height he used to get but also, this special teams coach isnít very good and the unit as a whole is getting way too many kicks/punts blocked, allowing too long returns and not getting nearly as many great returns himself.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Haven't watched closely enough to have a sense of what's off, but definitely feel like Tucker has been uncharacteristically ordinary this year. The blocks make me wonder about issues with the snap. Tucker had an elite long snapper for years in Morgan Cox and Nick Moore seemed to be on his way to that level. Ott seemed to be sort of the guy we could pick up quickly at the time and I wonder how much of a downgrade he might be from Moore.

    They had a late change at long snapper due to injury. The holder went from someone Tucker had worked with from day 1 to kid with limited experience. Those changes matter. They do have to find a way to get over them but it's clearly a factor this year.

    I was wondering the same thing. Stout is supposedly an excellent holder. Maybe the time from snap to hold has increased. Seems like milliseconds could make a difference and it sure seems like something they could measure.

    He's definitely lost a bit of oomph and accuracy it seems like.

Do we think this is the start of a sustained decline, or temporary dip?

    Curious is it Tuckers fault when the field goals are blocked?


    I know we lost yesterday but this thread is just purely absurd and stupid.

    Yeah, the real issue is the ST coach is abhorrent and clueless. I wish you guys could have heard me on that, I think, 2nd or 3rd kickoff of ours, where instead of booting it out the end zone, they do the gimmick try to kick it to the goal line thing and the returner promptly blew past all our ST guys and got to like the 35. They never tried it again all day. I never drop F bombs at the stadium out of respect for people around me but I was at that point lol

    Of course, Browns did that too and Duvernay's dumbass took the ball out and got to like the 20. He then fair caught the rest lol

    Tucker certainly seems off somehow. I think the plant foot may have slipped on the block yesterday but I'd have to see it again.

    I wonder if he's not as confident he'll have the range on long kicks, so he's angling them more to guarantee they get there. That would mean they are flying lower, leading to higher likelihood of blocks.
