He'll be a staple here for a long time.
So glad we found a kicker who probably still gets carded trying to get into bars and clubs in the city instead of the ones with AARP membership cards we've had to rely on mostly for the past few years.

To think Payton was getting slaughtered for choosing this kid at the tail end of Pre-Season. Labeled as one of his most idiot decisions and was something sure to tank us.
Anyone care to eat their crow?
In fairness to those posters, Lutz did miss two field goals in week 1 in a game we lost by 1 point and he also got a short field goal attempt blocked due to an inexplicably low trajectory point in week 2, which resulted in a touchdown in a game we lost by 3 and held our opponent's offense out of the end zone. So that's two games that a strong argument could be made that the quick, out of the blue decision to sign a kicker with no experience may have cost us one or two of those games. (Can't fully blame him for the last Raiders miss, that would have been difficult for anyone and was a desperation shot that very many kickers can't even dream of attempting)
That said, I am very happy he is our kicker and has seemed to fixed his issues with low kicks. The ball really comes off his foot well and I no longer find myself sweating extra points and short attempts. He is developing very nicely and seems to be very coachable, as his kinks appear to have been worked out.
So, we're not going to wait for more information? Just assume incompetence immediately?
