    Why Mike Nugents short kickoffs are a good thing

    when he boots it short, like he did today.. you either have a 3rd line blocker catching the ball or the actual returner catching it so close to his blockers that he has no room to make a move or get momentum. So in reality theyre at the 30 or 35 every time which isnt so far from the starting position of many teams who have kickers that boot it down to the 5. Case in point when justin miller had the ball kicked short on the opening possession he had no where to move at all because jmills game is all about momentum. His big return came when he was 1 yard out of the endzone. Thats where all of his returns come from ie his 103 yarder earlier this year

    they still are getting it beyond the 25... I think we need a kickoff specialist next year, maybe Graham can learn?

    When he kicks it that short the teams are starting a good 5-10 yards up from where most teams start with the football. The Jets have to bring someone in to handle this next season or Nugent has to work on his distance.

    This is an interesting argument, Armyjet - but I'd atleast like the peace of mind of knowing that Nuge could kick it into the endzone if he needed to!

    Not a big deal for the opposing team to start on the 30 yd line. We seem to start there more times than not .

    Watching his kickoffs yesterday, I have become of the opinion that Nugents' KO problems may be more mechanical than leg strength. Over the last few weeks, his kickoffs have varied from the goal line to the the 20-something yard line. It seems that his short kickoffs almost go straight up, as if he is getting under the ball. It's just strange the he can kick a 54 yard FG with plenty of room to spare, but can't consistently get his KO's deep, although he does it on occassion.
