Steve Hauscka went 24-27 and had a .889% field goal percentage, Went 24-27 in field goals.
In the 0-29yd range he was 8-8 in the 30-39yd range he was 10-10 in the 40-49 yd range he was 5-5 in the 50+ he was 1-4 his long was 52 yarder.
Hauschka missed only three field-goal attempts. One was blocked and the other two came from 61 and 51 yards
Greg Zuerlein went 23-31 and had a .742 percentage.
in the 0-29yd range he was 5-5 in the 30-39yd range he was 3-5 in the 40-49 yd range he was 7-13 in the 50+
Zuerlein is the man. But, I think the key to ST is consistency, and constantly having that nagging thought that, maybe my kicker can boot it from the 45, 50,56 (twice this year they missed from 66 yards out) is not conducive to having a ST that does something consistently.
I don't think Hauska's leg is pathetic, I think that Pete's scheme values consistency and field position above everything else.
Being in a situation were a FG from behind the 45 or 50 is needed is not as important as hitting everything from the 39 yard line and forward.
Now if you ask me, I would rather have Blair Walsh over any of these guys. That dude is crazy. He hit 92 percent of his FG's, went 35-38, went 10-10 in the 50+ range with a long of 56. 2 of his FG's were blocked and 1 was in crazy weather conditions.
