No excuse for Bass

Recommended Posts

Rookie? Yes. 
One of his kicks might have been good? Sure. 
 

Thank god we have the Dolphins next week. If he misses one next week, he has to go. 
 

There was no reason to draft this kid if this is what he does under pressure.

I think BOJO held the laces in on the 2nd miss.  Still though.  Not a good day and rookie kickers are a roll of the dice.

The thing is this is who he was in college. He has a big leg. He can nail some long ones... but an NFL kicker has to be reliable under 50. Bass wasn't in college. He is an adventure.

This is ridiculous. Clearly he was pushing to the right. That’s a mechanical issue and our ST coach should be able to knock that out of him. His XP’s were solid. Rookie nerves. The kid will be fine.

Huh? I've read it here Bass is going to be "just fine".

Yeah, each and every kick was going off to the right. He only made some of them because they weren't too long to end up missing.

I’m not nearly as confident as some of you that he is “fine”, but I’m also willing to give him more than just one week of a regular season to get it together. I’m still more concerned about Allen’s love of coughing up the football

Three of his kicks were good.  Most of his KOs were touchbacks and the other 2 led to drive starts inside the 15 yard line for the Jets.  Does he have to clean up his kicks?  Sure.  But I'll give him time.

I can understand being annoyed with the kicker. The QB? not so much.

I mean, being 3/4 isn’t that bad on a windy day

I seem to recall another kicker the Bills had who had some issues early so they let him go. Something Anderson was his name...pretty sure he ended up with a decent career. 😃
