in 2017, he made 7/9 from 50+.  the next year it was 4/7.  Last year 1/5.

 

His leg is dead.

 

nah - just a flesh wound.

Last time the Bills drafted a kicker, it was Dustin Hopkins.  As a rookie, he couldn't beat out the incumbent, was cut and went to Washington eventually.  Hopkins had been hyped, too.

 

This is a tough year to try to take Hauschka's job. Big gamble for McD to take him.  McD doesn't want to be in the middle of the season and discover the kid can't hack it.  

 

On the other hand, McBeane like their guys, not inherited guys.  

 

Fun contest. 

 

 

 

I thought Hopkins was going to be named the starter and then he got hurt which led to them signing Carpenter, who kicked well enough that they'd stuck with him even when Hopkins was cleared.

Somewhere, Haushka just threw his laptop across the room.

He tried to kick it across the room and missed.

2 Bills players that will never make it to the Bills PS or get picked up within a week are Jake Fromm and Tyler Bass.

Legendary kicking coach "Doc" Spurgeon on #Bills kicker Tyler Bass. He coached All Pro Jeff Wilkins at Youngstown State & thinks Bass is even better. https://t.co/FLTuguGWFV

Once again the OP gets no likes and the first response gets 11. Such a strange phenomenon.

Sorry, I don`t get it.  71% on fg last year, longest career fg is 50 yards and everybody thinks he is a sure thing.

 

This year`s Duke Williams?

I think the lack of confidence in House to make long field goals has finally taken its toll on the orgamization

I have a question for the board: does anyone know if Bass can punt? I recall reading about  that somewhere but am not sure if its true that he indeed can. The Bills braintrust Love versatility so if he Can that seems to me another reason to keep him around? I am not sure he wouldn't be claimed off the Practice squad if they don't keep him on the full time roster.

What ultimately decides which kicker a team decides to keep? Other positions are obvious why a team keeps one player over another. With kickers, we rarely see kicking situations that matter. Is it struggling in practice? A team would rather keep the more expensive option because they know what they get from him? Punters are slightly easier because these guys shank punts all the time, but it's rare to see a camp kicker in key moments.

the article held high praise for the young man I hope he brings it and leaves No doubt about who to keep, I would guess he'd be snatched out of the practice squad if he is near as good as this article supposes

 

Yes, one of those other 31 teams will almost definitely pick Bass up as soon as he’s released. The best-case scenario for the Bills would be to have both kickers perform really well throughout preseason, followed by a Hauschka trade for a late-round 2021 pick. Bass is the physically superior talent with a longer career ahead. By all accounts, he has the mental fortitude to handle the pressure of the position and the work ethic to quickly learn the wind nuances at New Era Field.

 

The Vedvik versus Bojorquez battle is also interesting. Vedvik seems to have a stronger leg and offers more versatility as a kicker/kickoff specialist.

Serious question.  Why do people think the 71% fg last year is not relevant?  Was he injured?  Was there some other reason?

Is his name "Bass" pronounced like the fish?

 

Or like the 4 stringed musical instrument?

I think it's pronounced like the 6-string version.

This is like saying lottery tickets are a good investment because some guy hit big once.
