Kicker saga continues, Bears cut all - only Piniero remains

Recommended Posts

would be fine if the Bears kicked on 1st or 2nd down to ensure that Pinero kicks a couple of 50 yarders.

1st and 10 from the 35. Send out Pinero from 52. I don’t need to see the Tyler Bray led backup offense score a TD,

Jets 2 kickers are 2-6 on extra points.

Tennesse kicker is 2-4.

6 kickers have missed extra points so far.

ATL kicker is 4-7 on FG.

DAL is 3-5

Buf and NE are 1-3.  

Ten and Cle are 0-1.

Only 6 kickers in entire league are perfect on more than 4 FG attempts.

Yeah, gimme 3 FB dives and a kick there too. I’ve been advocating for the 3rd down “Chase throw it out the back of the end zone” play call for 2 games already.

I want 8-10 kicks from Pinero with a couple bombs mixed into it.

I could care less if we score another TD.

This is the issue with Bray, he can’t move the ball and limits the chances for kicks.

True but it is better that than talking about a starters injury or a key players hold out. I'll take it this year. LOL

Agreed.  If uncertainty about our PK is our biggest concern we are a lucky buncha' Bears Fans.

Piniero has made roughly 85% of his kicks in camp and preseason and has shown a strong leg.

I'll take that over Connor Barth, Cody Parkey, and whoever else we've had here for coffee and a sandwich since we cut Robbie Gould.

Personally I wouldn't bother with calling plays so that Piniero has to make a 50+ FG.

Why?

Because we already know he can.  He's made them from that distance and beyond before and kicked one from 80 yards as a stunt.

So it's not all about can he but rather will he and even if he makes four 50+ FGs during these last two preseason games that still doesn't assure he'll make the first one he attempts for real or that 56 yard game winner in a critical must win game.

There comes a time when ya' gotta stop shaking the cup and just roll the dice.  He either is our PK or he's not.  I'd be just as happy if not more so seeing nail 6 PATs and a couple of 40 yarders without a miss as I would see him bang one home from 50+ but miss two PATs.  He still has to make a kick after each TD we score too.
