Any Coach that calls for a Squib Kick when up by 3 or less should be FIRED on the spot.
How many games have been lost because a squib kick gave the opposing team field position with the ball near midfield? Lovie in his infinite retardation had Gould squib the kickoff and gave the Falcons the ball at the 44 yard line, the 44 yard line!!, which set up the inevitable 26 yard completion. From there it was an easy 47 yard chip shot in the dome for Elam. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
What’s more likely, giving up a 90 yard kickoff return or giving up a 20 yard completion? If it the former, you have some serious issues with your kickoff coverage unit. And it’s not like a squib kick has a zero percent chance of a TD return anyways. What a fucking idiot.
