Doesn't Morstead do the kickoffs?Speaking of, that's something that no one has brought up. Lots of people being critical about Lutz having his kicks blocked because our kicking line has been terrible (though Lutz gets blamed), but no one has brought up that Lutz has been pretty good at putting the opposing team in a bad position on kickoffs.
Morstead has been straight up money so far this season too.
How can anyone say they are happy with him at this point? At best, we can say we want to see how he performs going forward. While the OLine contributed to the block, his low trajectory cannot be ignored. He said it himself that his trajectory has been too low. That has to be corrected if he is to be an NFL kicker. Hopefully he is able to. He has a great leg. But until he shows the whole package, I would not say I am happy with him yet.I'm happy with Lutz atm. It's way to early to be throwing him under the bus.
Blocked kicks are almost always the fault of the o-line not the kicker or was just an insane effort by someone on the opposing defense.
Exactly. While missing a 31 yarder is terrible, it sounds as if PFF needs to update their grading system if they are penalizing kickers for not kicking a touchback in today's NFL.None went for touchbacks...??
That was an issue in the old days...nowadays might this be quality sign as teams try to pin down the KR in the 10yard corner.
