Saints kicker calls regulation miss “unacceptable,” “unfortunate”

Of course, the rash of high-profile misses around the league might make it hard for the Saints to line up a workout if they wanted to (the kicker bus is definitely going to be rolling around the league this week). But Hocker can at least point to his emergency punting duties as a positive, after Thomas Morstead was injured.

They weren't exactly the words I used when he missed, but the words are not suitable for this site. Thank god for CJ spiller.

I seldom get upset but I started dropping F bombs. Hindsight, he did hit a 51 and also had a beautiful punt. Missing a 30 though for a pro, all I can say is it better not happen again for a long long time.

Problem is it has been happening all year on EXP by a lot of kickers. He is a rookie, ill cut him some slack.

I think Hocker is gonna be fine, I like the kid. All his kicks seem to be straight, he doesn't have that Hartley hook which is a big plus. He just misjudged it, he'll be fine.

I agree. That 51 yarder was huge, and he nailed it dead center. I'm hoping it's less of a confidence issue and more about focus. Maybe he's trotting out there with the mindset that he already has it in the bag and mailed it in. While that isn't exactly excusable either, it is something that any reasonable person would learn from after the first f up. I give him a pass this time. Admittedly much easier to do because we still won.. and it just so happened that I needed one more Brees td to win my fantasy game.
