Nortman shank

Recommended Posts

I think Nortman's shank at the end is being overshadowed by the loss in general. Nortman punted the ball 6 yards.. which in turn gave the Bears excellent field position, where they were able to score a quick TD. That was the 2nd poor punt of the day for Nortman.

I looked up to see where Nortman ranked throughout the league. To my surprise, Nortman was ranked 30th in the league (before this game). I am sure he is ranked dead last after his 22 return avg agaist the bears.

Nortman being from Wisconsin, I thought he would be accustomed to kicking with high winds. I am not giving Nortman a pass just because it was soldier field. Looks like our punting issues have not been solved.

Does not surprise me Nortman is ranked 30th.... he has not been great or even good all season. I remember thinking in several games to myself how bad his punting was. That shank today was just pathetic.

It was a planned directional punt call, you can tell by the way he tried to actually punt and the way his body was turned to the right. The wind caught the direction, carried it out of bounds. Not out of the norm. It was the playcall that put him in the situation.

Which, speaking of the play calling for the special teams... It was absolutely terrible. Short kicks, allowing your opponent to start at the 40? Really? Why not just kick it to Hester? Even if you don't get a touchback, he has to start in the endzone with the special teams baring down on him.

In that situation, staff should have told him to boom it through the EZ. Give up the touchback. Why try to directional in swirling winds, anyway.

The punt and interception led to 14 quick points. Those two plays are by far the biggest two reasons for the loss, not any questionable coaching decisions.

Not only did the short kicks give the Bears killer field position the entire game, but it put our offense in a hole every fuging drive. The scary part is they didn't even bother to make an adjustment after the Bears started putting running backs and receivers in to field kicks. What the fug is going on here?
