Gay Appreciation

October 7th, 2019

Former Bucs kicker Cairo Santos tied a modern NFL record yesterday.

Santos, cut by Tampa Bay just before the season, missed on four field goals — two short and two long distance — as his Titans fell 14-7 at home.

Of course, Santos is the guy the Bucs deemed the best available option to drive competition for rookie kicker Matt Gay, who has settled down nicely, including a 42-yard field goal yesterday.

Gay is drilling field goals with an 83 conversion rate, 12th-best in the NFL. His extra point rate of 88 percent ranks tied for 27th.

Before yesterday’s game, general manager Jason Licht was raving about the mental makeup of Gay and how much it says that he’s recovered from what happened against the Giants.

Joe is searching for positives this morning and is filled with Gay appreciation.

    I’m proud of Gay. If he proves to be the real deal at the end of the season we should have a Gay Pride Celebration if there is such a thing.

    Was thinking that of that last night. Looks like Gay is shaking his early rookie kicker jitters and is hopefully to shake as time goes by and become “the bomb” kicker we’ve needed for so long.

    no reason he can’t be the one to finally fix the position after 10+ years in the wilderness. it would be such a win for the roster, the GM, and most importantly the long-suffering fans

    I admit that I hold my breath whenever Gay lines up to kick.

    Still… kicker is worth a draft pick. We’ve proved it. Twice.

    Santos looked feeble out there. Stick a fork in his NFL career. Brutal business…

  15. SB Says:

    He is my kicker on all my FF teams

    Agreed. Same can be said for Mariota. I predict before the season is over Mariota is going to get benched. Both he and Winston have had disappointing careers.

  17. Says:

    I like gay from 46 more than from PAT!

  18. diggler Says:
