Hopkins just missed after making it when he got iced.

This is like the 10th fuggin FG in the NFL and CFB that I've seen that was missed bc of fukking icing the kicker.




strong everything.

Is there a stat for effectiveness of icing the kicker?

I swear it's never been this effective before this year

Yeah that made me irate, usually it's chalked up to weak kickers but Hopkins has been pretty much automatic this season.

Oh well.

Brian Mitchell, and the head coach said the second snap was high and off a little which caused the kicker to pull it.

If the hold is fine though, how does a high snap affect the kick? I hear that the snap was high for a lot of these misses.

sometimes i feel like these guys are just cracking under pressure even when they aren't iced, cause you see these guys drill down 60 yarders in practice but miss chip shots during the game, doesn't really make sense to me. obviously it's a different kick going over a live defense but how can you ever miss 20-30 yarders? youhadonejob.jpeg

I think that it is like a golf swing where slight changes sends the ball off trajectory

High snap, farther distance to bring it back down, ball gets down late.

The hold and the kick happen at a certain timing. If that timing is off it affects the way the ball travels.

If the ball is in place before a kicker even has to make his run to the ball he'd hardly ever miss it. But since the ball is snapped and defenders are rushing at them the timing of the kick has to be perfect to simulate an ideal dead hold.
