Did the Buccaneers finally conquer their kicking curse?

Did the Buccaneers finally conquer their kicking curse?

The Bucs have changed kickers eight times since 2012. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are cursed when it comes to field goals. They just signed Patrick Murray to replace Nick Folk, who was himself replacing Roberto Aguayo, who was drafted last year because the Bucs couldn’t get that position stabilized. Yeah. Oops. I don’t know what it is about the Bucs that they can’t just get a decent kicker. Few other teams have as many issues getting kickers. It’s mind-boggling. Which is also what the folks over at SB Nation studios thought, as they put together a video charting the Bucs’ eight...

Buccaneers re-sign Patrick Murray to fix kicking woes

Buccaneers re-sign Patrick Murray to fix kicking woes

The Bucs are bringing back their former kicker to replace Nick Folk. Well, that didn’t take long. Four games into the season and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have yet another new kicker. This time it’s Patrick Murray, who won today’s kicking tryouts according to his agents. Presumably, this means the Bucs are saying goodbye to Nick Folk. The veteran kicker beat out Roberto Aguayo in preseason, but managed to miss five field goals and two extra points in just four games. Whoopsydaisy. Folk was brought in as veteran competition for Roberto Aguayo, last year’s second-round pick (!) who is...

Nick Folk might get replaced after missing a bunch of field goals. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had a pretty bad history with kickers since they cut Matt Bryant after the 2008 season.

Andrew Franks expected to get workout from Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers did everything they could on Thursday night to beat the New England Patriots, ultimately losing the game 19-14. Well, not everything they could do - because they could not convert a field goal. Or another field goal. Or another. Kicker Nick Folk missed all three attempts at three points during the game - and badly missed them. Now, it appears, the Buccaneers, who changed to Folk in training camp after releasing 2016 second-round draft pick Robert Aguayo, are considering another kicker change. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Tampa Bay is expected to work...

Buccaneers lose to Patriots as kicking and passing game struggle

Jameis Winston couldn’t get going against the league’s worst defense. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost a very winnable Thursday night game against the New England Patriots, 19-14. Nick Folk missed another three field goals after doing the exact same thing last Sunday, while Jameis Winston struggled to produce anything until the fourth quarter. The Bucs struggled to produce anything on offense for the first three-and-a-half quarters, while facing the worst defense in the NFL. Meanwhile, their defense kept one of the best offenses in the NFL mostly in check. It was a weird game. Rookie...

The Patriots gave the Bucs 30 penalty yards and a free field goal to end the half

And Nick Folk missed it. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense is not playing good football today. Or, to be more precise: the Bucs passing offense is not playing good football—Doug Martin is doing just fine. So when the Bucs got the ball down 13-7 at the end of the first half, no one expected them to pass their way into field goal range, let alone a touchdown. And sure enough they didn’t. Instead, the Patriots just gave them 30 yards on penalties to set up a 56-yard field goal. The Bucs were on their own 27-yard line with nine seconds left in the first half, and for some reason didn’t...
