I know Randy Bullock was the hero of Week 1, but Week 2 not so much at all. Going 0-for-3 with the chance to end the game in regulation can really hurt a rookie kicker or any kicker for that matter.
Watching other kickers from other teams in the past it is unpredictable on how Sunday’s performance will affect the young kicker, but it could just be a one-day thing of playing in his first home game. With the Texans being on the road this coming week, against the defensing Super Bowl champions, we’ll see how he responds to such a dismal day.
I hope the best for the young man, because it was tough seeing him go through what he did on Sunday.
