Giants Worked Out Two Kickers

adamg : 11/14/2017 6:18 pm
Andrew Franks and Jason Myers per Jordan Raanan.

For those who were starting to get antsy over the least of our problems...
Franks is pretty good

RPI grad, division 3. I'd take him I've Rosas
Rosas sux

Guy can't make a 34 yard kick
If the Giants did not work out any kickers

they would be sending a clear message to their players that it is not business as usual.

Kickers with his record do not last long in the NFL

Nor keep the kickoff in bounds.

Franks sucks balls too
Why bother at this point

Its just more water in the ocean, or more sand on the beach, or whatever else.
No thanks to Franks

Franks missed two kicks under 30 yards last year. Hard pass.

kickers are low hanging fruit when teams want to send a message that players will be held accountable for nonperformance
May as well give Rosas

the entire year at this point. See if he can gain a bit better consistency. He's the least of their worries right now. Hell, they're letting MacAdoo finish the year the out!

we may NEED a miss at the end of a game!
If Rosas has this strong leg ...  
FStubbs : 11/14/2017 9:34 pm : link
... may as well let him develop.

And Novak have been good

This is not the time yet to give up on him but I do like the idea of letting him know he needs to improve but kickers are a breed apart. His big leg spoken about so far has not been seen during games to this point. This could light a fire inside him or cause him to overreact and just melt away his chance.
Jason Myers is very similar to Rosas.

Big leg, wildly inconsistent. His first two years, the Jaguars were going nowhere anyway, so they could afford to ride out his ups and downs. This year, the inconsistency continued, the leg strength diminished, and Jacksonville improved to the point where the kicker actually made a difference. The Jags are 3-0 since cutting him.
I don't see the point

He is a young kicker  
larryflower37 : 11/15/2017 9:31 am : link
let him see if he can work out his issues.
They are 1-8 with a lot of other issues

It's funny cause it's true.
