Roberto Aguayo Kicked Again Today

May 25th, 2017

Yes, there was kicking again today — in front of media — at One Buc Palace.

Roberto Aguayo vs. Nick Folk. Oh, the drama after Tuesday’s wild action.

Aguayo opened a lot of eyes missing 3-of-4 field goals under 40 yards into the skinny posts Tuesday. Folk then waltzed up and drilled four in a row — all with confidence.

Today, the duo battling for a job was kicking to the real goal posts on the One Buc Palace practice fields. Folk was a cool and powerful 5-for-5, with the farthest from what appeared to be 40 yards.  His kicks were right down the middle.

Aguayo’s kicks were a little less sure, and he made 4-of-5, with one possibly a miss left from the right hash mark from what appeared to be 35 yards. There was no consensus among media whether it was good or not.

    Oh boy.

  2. Dewey Selmon Says:

    The one consistent so far has been Folk down the middle with leg strength.

  3. Miko Says:

    Aguayo, A gone o

  4. Buc50 Says:

    If he can’t kick in practice, he sure as hell can’t be trusted in crunch time.

  5. Tampa Tony Says:

    What a bust

    Goodbye-O Aguayo

  9. Bucsfanman Says:

    C’mon Roberto! Get it right.

  10. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    Aguayo’s gotta go-o.

  11. Casey Morgan Says:

    Maybe if Aguayo looks OK in pre-season we can get something– anything– for him…

  12. Lev Says:

    “Family feeding” Nick Folk will prob be out kicker come Sept. 10th.

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

    Yep Lev when he said “I have a family feed” I knew then Roberto hands would be full.

  14. The Anomaly Says:

    No way he’s on the roster come Sept. It’s mental. He may do better elsewhere where there’s no pressure. Moving up to get him put too much pressure on his fragile psyche. No one to blame but Aguayo.

    We may even want to find actual competition for Folk instead of dead man walking.

    And I hope the FSU fans will pipe down for once. It’s the Bucs not Noles.

    2nd rounder…..peace. she gone!!!

  16. rayjay1122 Says:

    Nick Folk is not probably going to be our kicker. He IS going to be our kicker. Aguayo is garbage as an NFL Kicker. Hopefully Licht is a more accurate kicker than Aguayo when he kicks him off the team.

  17. feelthepewterpower Says:

    powerful is 40 yards? lol

  18. USFBUC Says:

    Joe keep saying us updated on the kicking situation. This is one of the important battle scenes this offseason so I think makes sense for the Joes to keep us Jon to date on it.

  19. USFBUC Says:

    Jesus I hate autocorrect.

  20. MarineBucsFan Says:

    Nick Folk has got to feel pretty freaking comfortable with his job status. He may not even see Aguayo as competition??? Him kicking down the middle every time tells me he is cool, calm, and collected….kicking with ease. No pressure

  21. Cobraboy Says:

    Go look at Aguayo’s mechanics.

    He doesn’t drive through the ball laterally relying on pure force to generate height. He drives *up*, which takes juice off of the ball, less velocity, and more subject to wind variations.

    Folk drives *through* the ball, not up.

    There is little surprise to me as to the “whys” of Aguayo’s problems. I stated this many, many months ago and nothing has changed.

    Another mechanics issue is the placement of his shoulders on contact. They are not square. That’s why Aguayo seems to “aim” the ball rather than just blast through it with the body & shoulders square.

    Go look at film! I’m not making this up!

    And keep in mind the J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets franchised Folk for 2014. That’s how highly they thought of him.

    The Jets losing Folk was like the Bucs losing Matt Bryant.

  22. Cobraboy Says:

    So the tally is:

    Folk: 9 for 9
    Aguayo: 5 for 9

  23. BucDaddy82 Says:

    Cut Aguayo. It is OVER.

  24. tnew Says:

    Cobra.. I have another one . Look at his placement foot.. Its all over the place

  25. 941bucsfan Says:

    Kicking on some skinny field goal post, and from what Inhear wjth aguayo kicks barelu missing if they were the real field goal post la he would be 9-9… wake me up whem they are kicking in a game

  26. Not there yet Says:

    There was no consensus among media whether it was good or not? Then why say he was 4 of 5? We know you want him gone and refuse to write anything positive about the guy but when you admit you couldn’t tell if a kick was made out not then still count it against the guy you kinda look stupid. Aguayo is losing but it’s clear even his teammates are rooting for him

  27. The Anomaly Says:

    His teammates are rooting for whoever wins the job and who will help them win games. Period. WHether it is Folk or Aguayo remains to be seen.

    Not there yet, are you an FSU fan?

  28. Buccfan37 Says:

    Aguayo oh my oh.

  29. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    As your boy would say, claiming he was 4 for 5 is Fake News. Don’t do that. The pres is a complete moron and we don’t need to give his nonsensical claims any credence.

  30. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Having said that they do need to cut him ASAP and bring in some real competition for Folk

  31. Tbbucs3 Says:

    We have to get rid of the skinny goal post, it’s a cute idea but it just messes up the kicker. Regardless, Agauyo still sucks.

  32. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    He was better this time.

  33. Mike Johnson Says:

    I’ll say it for the record guys..Roberto loses his job this year and get picked up by another team for like a 6th or 7th rounder. Or..he is on the streets. Just remember Roberto, I like my chicken extra I drive thru the drive thru!

  34. Dlavid Says:

    I will be glad when Aguayo is no longer a threat/liability to this team !
