    Apart from his week 1 horror show, he’s been clutch ever since.
    Hit a long game winning kick in Los Angeles and nailed a long one to take the game to overtime in New England … the only field goal he’s missed since week 1 was a 50+ yarder, so hopefully we have again a reliable kicker.

    "Greg, the leg" is back on track! He's got his "mojo" working, again! He'll be a blessing, heading into the stretch run! :grin:

    I like him and I hear ya. Here's why I disagree. The man has 1 job to do. Kick the ball between the uprights. THATS IT. If a guy can't do that consistently, I take issue with that. Yes he's done his job lately. Good for him. Lets reserve praise 4 when the playoffs are on the line and he makes a kick. I will be the first to applaud him. Until then..I expect him to do his job well.

    For some reason I have very little confidence in him.

    Interesting timing for this. I like Zuerlein more than most and am glad he made that game tying kick, but didn't he just miss a huge kick this week that almost cost us the game?

    Nah, he's to hit or miss for my liking.

    I'm nervous on every FG and extra point attempt because of him.

    I will not lie. Zuerlein's kicks, that curve close to the uprights, give me palpitations. I do not need palpitations at my age. :( Zuerlein! Stop giving me palpitations at my age! :mad:

    I can't bear to watch when he lines up for a kick......xtra points as well. It's not good for my heart health.

    I'm over being up tight when he lines up to kick, now. I believe he'll do nothing but stay on track, now that he's healthy again.

    He's been around long enough to know how to maintain his + mentality. He's had plenty of experience to keep himself sharp.

    Your points are correct and sensible, but it’s not always as simple as that.
    There’s pressure that will affect anyone, also if the timing of getting the ball set for the kick is out, that’ll affect the kick sometimes.
    You see in soccer penalty takers miss an 8 yard by 8 foot target from 12 yards even though they can hit a 50 yard pass to a runners feet.
    He’s certainly not money like Bailey was for a few years, but he’s 13/14 since week 1 and he deserves credit for it.

    if he can be nails during the playoffs, I'm his biggest fan. Lets see what he does.

    Zuerlein knows the ropes, when it comes to keeping himself fit and making the adjustments needed to succeed.

    I think he's on a steady incline to do nothing but improve. Someone with the experience he's had knows how to.

    I wasn’t sure he was going to survive after the Tampa Bay game. Yep I think he’s doing as well as anybody else in the league

    Yes, big props for missing that FG late that very likely could have cost us the game.

    Pfffft.

    Oh I thought he was gone after week 1, I think the fact that there’s such a lack of good kickers available was the only thing that kept him here.
