Pretty cool of Harbaugh to groom him knowing he was going with Tucker. And then to offer him up to Payton.

Hopefully he will get a few games in before we need him to kick a last second game winner. No way to simulate that kind of pressure.

excuse me if I don't hang my hat on a rookie kicker immediately. He's gonna have to make some FG's before I even halfway trust him.

31 of 46 field goals at Georgia State, capped off by a disappointing 12 of 19 performance as a senior.

This kind of performance won't be good enough regardless of the entire paragraph of excuses after that.

Did you not read the article on the type of training he received from nfl gurus
Over the offseason ? From experts in the field.

That alone should make his college stats moot.

Whether he succeeds or not is another question but
College stats are useless.

Here we have a specialist on Lutz career. I suppose you watched every kick he made.

So why did he miss those kicks if every thing they said in the article was a excuse?

And his first 3 seasons with Saints weren't so great either.

Hey, our kicking has been such a bad taste, what the heck. This is so crazy it might just work! I don't trust him but I haven't really trusted any of our kickers since Carney.

First, he will now have a competent holder and snapper.

Second, we also need to realize that the wider hash marks in the college game make kicking a totally different game in college.
