    ST consists of KO, KR, Punts, PR, FG
    We don’t suck at all of them. PR has been an issue (although I don’t know we saw anything against ARZ for this year) and FG is clearly a problem.
    otherwise, I think we have some of the best ST.

    Considering every game that is not perfect from the kicker JRob waives them and moves to someone new, kickers have to be thinking about this as a titan.
    Now, in addition to whatever the normal pressure is on the kicker, they have to worry about their job with every kick.

    Bring on #11. (Again, not even counting Mcann or any other kicker we’ve had during the training camps/preseason since 2019). Probably the only team that had a K on the PS.

    If you are a kicker who is brought in last minute then you know that your job is on the line if you screw up....he didn't get the job done...cost us 4 points.

    Right, I’m sure our PS guy is the answer.

    my comment isnt support for bagdley. It’s that waiving him doesn’t improve anything. We still have a rental kicker until our permanent rental (ficken) comes back.
    Just keep whoever this next kicker is but limit the use.
    My other point is that these kickers coming into Tennessee are aware that we haven’t had a good kicker in 2+ years. These guys come in knowing they have an opportunity to possibly win a permanent job but also have to keep it in their mind that if they miss, their opportunity is over. I think a little more patience from the Titans pays off better as we see with succop, santos, Joseph all of which we had, but now have steady kicker positions elsewhere.

    badgley’s probably not the answer, but why not give the guy a couple weeks to build any kind of confidence or consistency?

    or at least learn someones name


    radio said bagdley was a 100% complete stranger to everyone. Nothing but a name on a Robinson rolodex

    Being brought in last minute is a recipe for screw ups
    Besides, we lost by 25...kicker wasn't the only problem

    Even Ficken is just the current guy on the kicker carousel we've been running since Succop got injured.

    A decent camp and a 58 yarder in pre-season and everyone thinks he's amazing.

    That’s true. So give bullock a few weeks at least.
    If he still sucks, ficken is next.
    If he turns out good, then F it, let ficken go. If he sucks super bad, stop using a K at least until Ficken comes back for many “normal” kicking situations.
    I’d also be ok teaching kern how to kick.

    There’s a lot of people who were calling for Succop to be cut in 2019. Now everyone is saying “we shoulda kept him” lol

    Titans are at least bringing in proven guys. Badgley had a great track record in LA. Bullock is an 83% FG kicker in his career.
