I know, I know, I’m right there with you – kicking a football with no rush and no pressure whatsoever is not the most impressive thing in the world. Nor is it indicative of any real, on the field success. It’s a completely different thing. With all of that disclosure out of the way though…
81 yards is pretty freaking impressive.
And what IS indicative of real on-the-field success? Piñeiro’s actual SEC numbers: 21 for 25 (good for third in the conference) and 3 for 3 from beyond 50 yards. Long of 54. So he can walk the walk when it counts too.
Also let’s not forget his first viral appearance with the 77 yarder.
Looks like he’s stepping his game up no pun intended, adding 4 yards and some pads. Look for like a 23-25 year for him this season with a long of 59 or something. Then next year he’ll drop a 90 yarder with a helmet on.
