View Full Version : Why not pooch every time?

Reed seems to not be able to consistently kick further than the 5 yard line which results in a return to the 25+ yard line on a consistent basis.

His pooch at the end of the half resulted in the ball being down @ the 23yard line or so.

So....why not pooch every time? We'd probably end up better every time all the while killing the possibility of a runback.

because we love kicking the ball to the 15 and let the returner get a a full head of steam and return it past the 40...

This is Reed's last season here, unless he comes down on his asking price.

Coming down on his price won't help his shallow kickoffs and putrid FG percentage.

At least he can make extra points.

I thought all Reed's kick offs WERE deliberate pooch kicks :shock: You mean he has actually been trying.:stirpot

Count me as one who will be glad to see him gone at the end of the season.

Yup, I think the pooch kick beats the pants off the regular kick, statistically. Unless you have a guy who can consistently kick it out of the EZ, pooch is the way to go, IMO.

Reed'll never do it. He likes the nickname "Skippy," not the nickname "Poochie."
