Justin Tucker "one of the worst percentage-wise kickers in the NFL this year" - Shaun O'Hara

64 posts in this topic

Edit: Tucker. Obviously Justin Tuck would be a bad kicker :)

Watching NFL Network (mistake, I know), and I just watched them discuss how important special teams would be. Shaun O'Hara said, "These two kickers were among the worst, percentage wise, in the NFL this year."

Willie McGinest and the host of the show nodded in agreement.

How do you get a job like that, where you can be so wrong and yet paid so well? Weathermen, politicians, and sports analysts. Jeez.

.... Weathermen?

Anyway, that's just plain laziness. You'd think if they know what they'll discuss beforehand, they could at least look up the stats involved, or at least have them close at hand.

That's pretty bad. I know Akers had a down year but Tucker was money... You're absolutely right, anyone who is paid that highly should at least get their facts right.

:lol: That can't be true....how many did JT miss, three? Four? He's made so many under pressure and clutch kicks that I don't even remember his misses.

Now we have a stinky kicker to go along with our old defense and offense that lives and dies with Ray Rice.

From what I can tell he was 6th in completion percentage (90.9%, extremely high).

Tied for 1st in kicks over 50 percentage-wise (4/4)

They were talking about "Who has the edge?" and I kept waiting for them to point out that it's Akers vs. Tucker... apparently they didn't bother to do their research before talking.

Same here. I kinda sorta remember his first miss, and the rest is just a blur. In a good way.

His exact quote was "They (Akers and Tucker) were 2 of the 3 worst percentages for FG kickers this year."

Ha!! :lol:

I count 5 games that Justin Tucker scored the game winning Field Goal, or in the case of the Chiefs game, was THE reason for winning that game.

[/quote] they can say what they want but you know what? The Ravens and Tucker are in the Superbowl.... and it was Tucker whom made it possible with the game winning Double OT kick in Mile High in a game that is now one of the NFL's all time greatest games. "The Mile High Miracle" it was tucker that made the winning kick. and despite what critics and people say...... He and the Ravens are the only ones in the AFC left standing. so hey he can be 7th percentage wise. doesn't bother me.

Pathetic. That's why you can't take these guys serious. They really don't know what they're talking about most 80% of the time.

Lol, and the Ravens fans in N.O. shouting the "Seven Nation Army" chant in the background almost the whole broadcast. We got the last word!!!

These national sports media channels should stop hiring so many biased ex-players and put that money into technology and their research departments so they can operate with updated statistics!

Well, it hasn't been the stupidest thing I have heard this week. An editor at ESPN picked the 49ers to win 45-7.

It is the year of the rookie kicker and Tucker got the least publicity out of all of them, and he is just as good.

Too lazy to check, but I believe he was 30 of 33 in the regular season, and hasn't missed in the post season.
Yea, he's terrible. :rolleyes:

I wonder how much they pay this guy to be so clueless???

The only better kicker than Tucker is Walsh!! :ravensquote:[size=4] [/size]

Have him kick for a full season away from his precious dome then we'll talk.

I just brought it up to him on Twitter, everyone else should call him out as well. Tucker had the 6th best FG% among kickers this year (with at least 20 attempts). He was 30/33 on the year. What nonsense they spew on there

Maybe he got 2012 Tucker confused with 2011 Billy Cundiff. Otherwise I don't know what to say to this, other than the fact that NFL Network is trying to hire the cheapest labor it can. The guy can't even spend 10 seconds Googling Tucker's numbers?

He is but it's really tough to make the comparison after one season and knowing how short-lived a kicker's success can be in the NFL. And this goes for both Tucker and Walsh. But in general, I just think people are undervaluing the importance of kicking inside a dome to kicking outside having to account for all the weather conditions. And this is what makes the season that Dawson had up in Cleveland all that more impressive for me.

For my money, I think both Walsh and Tucker will be All-Pro kickers for many years to come but it's too early to say "this guy is better than this guy" one year into their careers, especially at that position.

Looks like O'Hara is trying to undo what he said...

At what point is being that wrong not just a mistake? Seriously. Akers missed 13 FG's in the regular season and 1 out of 2 in the playoffs.

Tucker missed 3 FGs all year and is 32-for-35 right now including post-season (17-17 from 0-39 yards, 11-14 from 40-49 yards, 4-for-4 from 50+ yards and 2-2 this post-season). He's 6th in the league this year in FG %. Akers is 30th.

That's not a mistake you make easily.

He back-pedaled quickly there. He might make a good CB.

Wish I could strongly disagree. Just think ... only 10 more years left on his contract.
