    Zuerlien makes me nervous as heck when he kicks but his miss saved us on that kick. He hits that kick perfect and it gets blocked. The right side of our OLine was destroyed on that play and I believe Zuerlein missed the kick trying to avoid the blocked FG. Romo and Nance even discussed this after the kick. A FG Kicker can't be expected to kick the ball through defenders.

    There was speculation that he pulled it in order to prevent it from being blocked. I would love to know if there has been any confirmation of that. If he did, that deserves some kudos.

    I think we've all gotten used to the bottom falling out at some point....

    I get your point. He makes me nervous every time he kicks the ball. However, his FG % is tied for #11 when you take out the ridiculous 60 yard attempt that we made him try. Also, some of the ones ahead of him have only attempted 3, 6, 7, 7, and 9 kicks. Really hard to say those guys are having a better year when they haven't really attempted many FGs.

    It was straight, but short, correct?

    I get queasy when he is kicking one from inside the 40....seems like those are the ones he may hook. The long ones he seems to focus more on kicking it straight.

    Yeah. Thanks for missing that makable FG. He is not doing terrible. But is missing EP and FGs. But is hitting them when the pressure is on. That 49 yarder for OT was about to push right. I thought he missed it for a second. Waited to see the refs signal good.

    Maybe it does maybe it doesn't. Tough to say. But he didn't appear to adjust his kick due to the rush. I'm not even sure he really saw the guy coming in from that side enough to think it was an issue until he was kicking the ball.

    Plus he has missed 3 FGs and 2 XPs already. That's nothing to be proud of. Did anyone actually feel like he was 100% making that kick to put us into OT?

    one FG was 60yard attempt and doesn't count like a Hail marry for a qb the int or incompletions really not something you count..

    hes a top 5 kicker and that something to be just fine with,..

    hes 12-14 in kicks without the 60+ yarder in there.. rights thats down right embarrassing LMAO what clueless fan expecting perfection from a player..is that 90% i mean wow he sux hard

    does dak never throw an INT or fumble no incompletions?

    does OL not miss blocks or get penalties

    do receivers catch everything?

    do all Defenders make every tackle and big stop?

    BUT HE DID and won the chargers game and made all the big kicks in the big moments been the one at the end of the TB game to take the lead..

    so no player coach or fan think a Kicker is making all the kicks..

    Baily choked in the 2014 GB playoff game missed TWO fgs when he was money most of the season..chat happens move on

    He hasn’t been reliable but he’s made a couple of kicks that he absolutely had to make. Eventually one of his misses is going to cost us a game and the Zuerlein hate threads will have to be merged.

    I have never kicked a FG in a game of football but I don't know how you could not see/feel/sense that guy being so close off the edge.
