Wide Right For Roberto Aguayo

May 7th, 2016

AguayowideIt’s happened already.

Yes, Roberto Aguayo pushed a roughly 38-yard field goal wide right today at rookie minicamp practice at One Buc Palace.

Oh, the horror. Somebody push Jason Licht in his pool!

Joe’s joking, but not about the missed kick.

A collection of Bucs hopefuls were in an 11-on-11 special teams period, and without any kind of rush, Aguayo showed he’s human. He didn’t miss any other kicks, per Joe’s eyeballs.

This is what happens when you use two draft picks on a legendary college kicker. People start to care about what’s (hopefully) meaningless.

    Im not in the crowd watching this kid under a microscpe waiting for him to screw up. Nobody is perfect. He wont make them all. Yes he needs to be a top five kicker in terms of his accuracy throughout the season, but everyone will miss at some point. Hopefully its not in must win moments, the ones that count will be judged the most.

  2. Buccfan37 Says:

    Murphy’s new law, some kicks will hook and some will slice. It’s windy out today, yeah that’s it.

  3. Gaytor Bait Says:

    Jesus, Joe. He missed one in practice?!?! Oh my!! Who was the holder? A starter? A try out punter? You’re going to rip this kid his whole career here, I can feel it.

  4. thunderchunkyPA Says:

    If this is going to be the “news” this kid will NEVER get a fair shake. It’s like saying, “Jameis missed a wide open Evans in 7 on 7 drills, better warn the masses”. Hell, Jameis’ first NFL pass was a pick 6 from the 1st overall draft pick and he doesn’t even get this kind of BS pressure.

  5. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    I LOVE this site and your content, that being said
    Cool it with this kicker bullspit. We don’t want to here about him missing 1 kick in PRACTICE.

  6. Couch Fan Says:

    Lets be honest. Its more likely Aguayo struggles this year. Its inevitable. He is a rookie. Someone said earlier he needs to be top 5. I dont believe that. Not this year. Not for a rookie. It’s not impossible but lets have some common sense here, he most likely will struggle this year.

  7. Dooshlarue Says:

    I frequently call Joe out on things…….but you guys need to reread what he wrote. …..jeez!

  8. BucFan20 Says:

    And of course he never missed a kick in practice in college. Then again remember to raise terrior when our number draft pick QB gets picked in practice.

    Just so every1 knows, I was being facetiouse. Alan Iverson said that, I’m sure you’ve all seen it. Lol, keep me coming joe

  11. HIRE JIMBO Says:

    Me= em^^^^^

  12. LargoBuc Says:

    I would be more concerned if it was August.

  13. Louis Friend Says:

    If he’s hooking them in preseason it’ll matter a little more. Pretty sure there’s no kicker that’s perfect in practice.

  14. d-roca Says:

    Is that Pedro from napoleon dynomite?

  15. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Hire a kicking consultant.

    Psst – Former Buccaneer Kicker Michael Husted – is listed a one of the better Kicking Consultants in the Nation. Won’t hurt to call the guy.

    Hey look – even though Dirk’s the Head Coach, and Todd Monkey is the new OC.
    Jameis still has Mike Bajakian as his position coach. So why wouldn’t you hedge your bet. By hiring a kicking consultant for Roberto Aguayo.

  16. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    As you may have heard, there’s only one real kicking coach in the league.
    His name is Randy Brown, and he works for the Baltimore Ravens.

    With his guidance, Pro Bowl K Justin Tucker (the second-most accurate kicker in NFL history) has converted 130 of 148 career FGAs (87.8%), and Pro Bowl P Sam Koch, Baltimore’s career record holder in punts (782), punt yards (35,324), punts inside the 20-yard line (280), gross average (45.2) and net average (39.4), continues to be one of the league’s most consistent and innovative punters

    With Philadelphia (2004): He helped coach Eagles K David Akers, earn his third Pro Bowl after hitting 27 of 32 FGAs and 41 of 42 PATs…P Dirk Johnson registered 42.1 gross and 37.4 net averages.

    So why hire kicking consultant for Roberto Aguayo.
    Just to help ease the transition.

  17. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    We’ll need him to make one to send us to the playoffs this season.
    . Watch it go thru the up rights..

  18. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    *So why wouldn’t you hire – a kicking consultant for Roberto Aguayo.

  19. Drew Says:

    He missed! OMG! Where is my doomsday hat.

  20. Bucfan951 Says:

    Am I the only one who thinks missing only 1 in practice is really good?

  21. ARGH_M8E Says:

    Laces out!!!! Ohhhh look…. They’re little footballs

  22. salish_seamonster Says:

    I hope we’re not going to be subjected to a daily hit/miss count during training camp.

  23. Defense Rules Says:

    Could care less what he does in practice.

    In games? Whole different story.

  24. Fsuking Says:

    He never misses right. Must have been close

  25. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Speaking for Pablo

    “Pablo still supports Roberto…..Even Pablo screws up sometimes while practicing Pablo’s table dancing”

  26. gotbbucs Says:

    I’m starting to hate the fact that we drafted a kicker…….not the fact that we drafted one, but the fact that Joe insists on absolutely beating everything about the dude to death.

    Note to Joe: none of us give a f#ck any more about the kicker. When he misses an in game kick and it costs us a game, then do a write up, until then, can we focus on the actual football players on the team.

  27. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    gotbuc now that’s 2G.

  28. brett williams Says:

    It only becomes an issue when idiots keep reporting it as one!! Non-issue , get a life!!

  29. DallasBuc Says:

    Nobody cares until for one reason or another games come down to this nice boy’s leg and he disappoints. Licht put this kicker and himself in a tight window for acceptance.
    I hope he can kick on Sundays because I would rather be finishing games before a kicker is needed with starting caliber talent from the 3rd and 4th round.
    To be clear, I’m fine with the move as long as he can make kicks when it matters. If he can’t then it’s the same as incompetent Lovie Smith or anyone else that cannot live up to their billed value.

  30. Buc1987 Says:

    Man people are cranky as hell at you today Joe.

  31. BucGator Says:

    This is you pushing your agenda. Disappointed you have already decided to take this angle on the kid. Pretty unprofessional in my opinion. You obviously didn’t read what’s written here. No surprise there.–Joe

  32. Dave Says:

    The problem with what Joe wrote is that he wrote anything at all. Kickers can get in their own heads. like a golfer, it’s a lot mental. If joe or others are going to write about every little thing with this guy, then joe becomes part of the problem if this kid reads what is written about him. Even if he doesn’t, people may tell him these things and then it starts becoming an issue in his head.
    We all want him extremely successful so let’s just ignore the hell out of him !

  33. Joseph Mamma Says:

    After practice he was so hot, so he took a bath. But he was still so hot, he shaved off all his hair on his head.

  34. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    Now we are going to have to deal with both the Doug Williams AND the Connor Barth Curse?

  35. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Lol at the poster above who thinks Aguayo “will struggle because he is a rookie!” He is not a rookie middle linebacker, CB, or QB. The fact that he is a rookie will have little no impact on his performance this year. Kickers do not have to learn how to adjust to the speed of the game or reading various defensive or offensive packages. That statement is just ludicrous! C’mon man!

  36. Supersam Says:

    Hmm that’s weird cuz Jenna Laine tweeted yesterday day that he’s been perfect, even drilling a 50 yarder right off the bat.

  37. Dooshlarue Says:

    Pedro for kicker.

  38. Eric Says:

    Cant blame Joe on this one at all. He was drafted as a second round pick and this is the rookie camp so naturally he is supposed to have material on the 1- 3 rounders more than the undrafted free agents and camp meat bodies. Dude gets paid as a second rounder and needs to be reported on as such. You people are ridiculous… before you hit submit you should read what you put out there. ” Joe don’t hurt our kickers feelings, ignore him so he doesn’t fail, everybody misses sometimes. Problem is people that the guy was drafted because he didn’t miss kicks, especially less than 40 yard kicks. I SMELL BUST!

  39. Eric Says:

  40. Mike Johnson Says:

    I wonder if our Bucs have a Kicking coach/consultant? This kid is going to need a little..NFL coaching up. And I suspect he’s going to have to develop more leg strength also. He’s going to be OK. I just hope the Bucs have some sort of mentor for him.

    The new rules changes make it different now. A kicker does need time to adjust. Perhaps not as long, but he’ll need time.

  42. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    Some of you have trouble with reading comprehension. I blame a long string of conservative governors.

  43. Mick Says:

    It’s possible that they were using the goal posts that are closer together.

  44. DavidBigBucFan Says:

    If some guys had reading and comprehension abilities they would know Joe is being facetious and this was all about clowning you guys who were all upset about the Bucs drafting Aguayo. It’s funny reading some guys post

  45. BucGator Says:

    No Joe, I read the post and I rarely disagree with what you write and actually rarely comment so it should be a surprise. My problem isn’t with the content, it is the fact your even wrote this article. Not needed and just fuels the fire for those that didn’t like this pick. I just think this article is beneath you.

  46. DaRealistBucFan Says:

    Told you he sucks!

  47. godzilla13 Says:

    Robert Aguayo does not need to develop more leg strength. He has made a 62 yard FG in practice and during a kick off has kicked 74 yards. His leg strength is fine. I am glad he missed a FG in practice. Get it out of the way and move on. He is the most accurate kicker in NCAA history. Someone mentioned “bust.” That is just lame. Why not let us know if he is practicing “mortar” kicks for kick-offs? How is his hang time? Did he pin the ball in the corner?
