This is something to watch... because you’re right... those balls were straight as an arrow... and end over end.Sloman's kicks have authority to them, they don't fuck around it's straight up and through.
Yeah I had caught some of that game with Blankenship's miss. It's funny how he was unilaterally listed above Sloman before the draft but he went UDFA and watching those two guys I would take Sloman no question. I think the Rams took the right kicker, and I wouldn't have said that before the draft about Sloman.So the other two rookie PKs also had their issues week 1. Blankenship missed a 30 yard while making two 30+ kicks. Same as sloman.
Bass was 2-4 from 30-39. Although one of those misses was actually good - refs goofed. Still, it wasn’t a good kick.
I was going to post a thread about cutting that loser. Imagine missing a 29 yarder, when you are a professional? He shouldn't have won the job in the first place. Not happy with him at all. Oh, and he can't even kick the ball into the end zone on kickoffs? Seriously?
Strangely his bio speaks about his significant improvement at EZ kicks during his 3 years in college....maybe it was the strong wind SundayOh, and he can't even kick the ball into the end zone on kickoffs? Seriously?
I'll trust the coaches.So in two games, he's only made a few chip shots and extra points. But he can't kick it into the endzone on kickoffs.
He has had a blocked XP because of his low trajectory, and missed an easy FG because of his "nerves".
I have news for you. If he can't handle the pressure of kicking a single FG, then how the hell will he handle it when the game is on the line?
Cut this guy now, before he costs us a game.
