Anybody concerned with Eberle?

Post by Aggie84025 » October 13th, 2018, 9:12 pm

Anybody concerned with Eberle missing 2 gimme field goals today? I think he will recover, but I always worry about field goal kicking. We are going to need him to make some big kicks to win some games in the future.

Just a little. I wonder how much is not having Nelson holding for him (he's still out right?)

Dj held today, even was in on Nathan’s touchdown over the middle, he was wide open as well and would have walked in.

No. Just an off day.

Nelson was playing today. The kicks looked like they came off his foot clean, just had the angle off on both of them.

No. Just an off day, and possibly not having DJ, as mentioned.

Dj did hold today, he even made it in on a few slot receiver snaps.

Maybe the wind had something to do with it?

If he was going to have a bad day today was a good one to have it. He is fine.

Yeah, saw that in another post. My bad. That's why I edited my post. I got the edit in within 30 seconds of posting. Not fast enough, I guess.
And I'm impressed that DJ was back taking snaps at the slot position! The kid's tough; a competitor! He'd be out there if he was held together with duck tape.

Not much. Kickers can kinda go into funks when they miss a couple but he’ll be fine.

It was pretty windy and wet too

For sure, he’s a tough kid! It’s pretty crazy that he had a plate put in his collarbone like 2 weeks ago and he’s already back and in the lineup.

I watched him practicing my in the south end zone before the game kicking into the wind. He couldn’t make a thing and the wind was really messing with him. He was overthinking it I thought. I could tell he was going to have an off day because he was too worried about what the wind was doing to his kicks.

I was sitting in section 100. The wind was blowing really hard into the stadium right there. Kids in front of me keep throwing up popcorn in the air and it would shoot up in the air. It didn't help that the wind shifted from out of the South to out of the North. I was watching the punts and it seems like the wind was blowing different directions 20 feet above the field.

No, I’m truly not concerned. He has been incredibly consistent, but everybody is going to have an off day now and then. We’ve got one of the nation’s elite.

We were there early and watching him during pregame warmups. The wind was howling and you could actually see the ball curve. He was having a hard time judging it and you could see him kick with different trajectories and strengths to try and get a feel for it. And then when he kicked the first one the wind had kinda died down and he miss judged it.

Anyways, that'd be my story.

I think he will be fine.

At the national anthem the flags in south end zone were blowing straight south and the ones the ROTC had were blowing straight west. I was amazed. Wind is crazy in that stadium.

We were up on the east side and the wind was pretty intense. You could tell that it was swirling down on the field as well. I'm guessing it just got into his head. It had died down quite a bit by the 2nd miss but I think he was probably still over thinking it.

He missed two field goals, but he remains on track to tie the all-time FBS single-season scoring record for kickers. That record is 157 points. If the Aggies play 14 games, he is on pace to score 157. He picked up another 11 today.

I was wondering who that was. He was possibly the easier completion

This ^^^^ Before the rest of the team ran out on the field he was struggling. I thought it might be in off day for him before kickoff. I’m sure he’ll be fine, just an off day.

He probably had a bad batch of El Sol refried beans.

I know dissent is frowned upon around here, but yes, I’m starting to get a little nervous. It’s been nice having a near automatic kicker, but maybe he just turns out to be a good kicker from here on out.

I think he was possibly over compensating for the wind. He missed two field goals before the game, both hit the up right.
