Hill is gonna be just fine. You want to see bad quarterbacking, just tune into CLE and BAL games...plenty of other examples today too.

 

Looks a lot better than Matt Ryan thats for sure.

You know why we are here. 

I am using Taysom Hill in my TE spot... what you all think of that? 

Koo still the man

This is your halftime great moments in coaching decisions: Let's take you back to 2017.....

Younghoe Koo's time with the Chargers is over after four games. The struggling rookie kicker was released Thursday with the team signing veteran free agent Nick Novak to replace him.

Koo was just 3 of 6 on field-goal attempts this season, missing last-minute field goals in both Week 1 and Week 2. The missed kick in Week 1 resulted in a 24-21 loss to the Broncos and Koo's miss against the Dolphins a week later came in a 19-17 home loss. The South Korea native initially signed as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia Southern. 

Novak is a 10-year veteran who was the Chargers' kicker from 2011-14. He is the second-most accurate in franchise history, converting 101 of 117 kicks during his four-year stint. The 86-percent completion rate is behind only Nate Kaeding’s franchise-leading 87-percent field goal conversion.

Novak, who worked out for the team on Wednesday, has played for six NFL teams, most recently with the Texans over the last two seasons. He has made 82.8 percent of his field goal attempts (173/209) over the course of his career. 

"We feel like Nick as the best choice for our team," Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said Thursday. "Nick has been an accurate kicker for a long time."

 

Nick would go on to make 9 of 13 FG that year, good for 69.2%, and would not play in the league again.

Best part?  1 of those was blocked.  The one vs Denver.

  • 4th & 2 at DEN 26

    (0:05 - 4th) Y.Koo 44 yard field goal is BLOCKED (S.Harris), Center-M.Windt, Holder-D.Kaser.

 

All 3 of the "misses" were 40+ yards.  All worked out. I love the Falcons turbo yardage offense with the can't punch it in aspect.

I know it's only his first game as a starter but Hill looks like an average qb against a very bad pass defense.  He's probably best used as a gadget player.

He has driven them down the field all game.  Missed FG earlier.

Hill is a jack of all trades who is pretty good at a lot of things but I still say he's an average qb.

Thats bs because you dont have data to prove It, Guy is 181 yds and 1 rushing TD in his First start,stop hating and guessing things
