Robbie Gould 2017 Season Outlook


Recommended Posts

Not sure I believe it, but this was just posted by one legit Bay Area news source:

 

"In the past three weeks, Gould has made 15 field goals – something no kicker has done in NFL history over a three-game stretch."

 

Just imagine how many of those FGs would have been scores if JG and Shanahan had some legit RZ weapons to work with.  If they get them this off season, watch out.

The 49ers just faced the Bears, Texans, and Titans and they had success but I wouldn't expect this offense to move the ball so easily on the Jags.  For me it becomes a matter of 'will they get in range to kick FGs?' VS what was for these last few games 'will Jimmy G manage to convert drives into TDs?'.  I'd rather role with a team that I'm worried about being overly efficient then one potentially struggling to get into range.  I picked him up planning to sit him against the Jags and I'm gonna stick with that and role out Jake Elliott.

Why would you doubt Jimmy G at this point? The guy throws for 300 every game and is allergic to the end zone.

He's on fire and the 49ers are different with that new QB apparently (I didn't watch their games). Is the JAX D really that good we should bench him. I replaced my season long kicker Hauschka with Gould for the semis and it made my day much less stressful. I can't see benching him, unless somebody think the JAX D is really that great.

They are really that good, I think Robbie would get at least double digits though. The ball fires off his foot like a rocket.

Just his inexperience and how tough a defense the Jags are.  And the Jags can take better advantage of how poor SF's D is too with Fournette.  It could be a dominating shutout imo, but at the same time Gould and even Jimmy G could have a good game.

SF's front seven is not the problem.  The CBs, especially Dontae Johnson, are the problem.  If JAX does well offensively, it will be through the air.  

 

It is obvious (to me at least) that JG already is as good as most "experienced" QBs in the league.  He threw to 9 different receivers today.  In his 3 starts, he's thrown for a ton of yards (but just hasn't scored enough to highlight the quality of his performances).  With Shanahan's help, he can spread the ball around against anyone.

 

Whether JG can come up with a reliable performance vs JAX (I doubt his ceiling can be very high) will depend on how his suspect O-line holds up.  JGs uber-quick release makes him almost immune to a game-long pressure meltdown, but no one brings heat better than JAX.  JG will need at least modest help to get it done.

This is the biggest question in my mind too. Jimmy is phenomenal, but his O-line is very weak and has put him under pressure already against middling defenses. Even then, he has made some incredible throws, but what happens when that is ratcheted up a notch? More pressure, brought faster, with a better secondary ready to capitalize on even a minor mistake? The crazy thing is I could easily see Jimmy getting Gould into field goal range multiple times this game, it's just very difficult to pin all the championship hopes on that, especially when I have Gregatron in my back pocket in a great matchup.

I dropped him and picked up Josh Lambo. I think Game Flow and field position will matter greatly for Jax opportunities and field goals. Plus JAX is on the road. Only makes sense considering how well their offense is humming.

 

Thank you Gould, but can't risk 6-7 points from you.
