Re: Saints will stay with kicker Zach Hocker

They need to put up a bullseye target and have the long snapper practice aiming for the red dot. Of course they won't realistically always be 100% perfect aim into the holder's hands, but I've been noticing a lot of times that McCown has to either reach up high, or out to the left or right, or down low for the ball. The snaps are coming in at a wildly different place, every time. Which can affect the kicker's timing, his distance, and even his aim.

Instead of catching punts between the inflatable Coke bottles, they should have a long snapping contest at halftime of the games, and if the random guy from the stands does better than Justin Drescher, put him in there and save some money!

The kid is still nervous no doubt but he's got a good leg. He just needs NFL experience.

Re: Saints will stay with kicker Zach Hocker

These effing head case kickers. They need to take a friggen page out of someone like Justin Tucker's practice book. That dude plays the wind when he kicks...knows where the ball is going and plays the wind. We should have practice drills that force the K to try different scenarios. That way they aren't thinking, it's instinct.

I liken it to how I prepare for bowhunting. sure, when I practice I have a rangefinder and wind checker. But I practice so many scenarios that when the time comes to actually draw on a deer, it's all instinctive. I'm not ranging distances or even thinking of anything when the times comes. I just do it.
