Kansas City Chiefs K Succop Has Been Nearly Perfect

Geez.  I didn't know the Scott Pioli football scouting prowess extended to kickers as well as linemen.  The Kansas City Chiefs have played no "real" games yet but it's becoming clear that, for the time being, Todd Haley and Pioli "got it right" with Mr. Irrelevant Ryan Succop.

"We probably kick five a day," Succop said according to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star.  "So it's going well."

Speaking to reporters following practice, Succop said he had missed only FOUR kicks during all of training camp.  

Wow.  Let's break this down in approximate numbers.

Five kicks a day.  20 days of practice since camp started on August 1st.  That's a 96% success rate.

"There’s still a lot of work to be done. In all areas of kicking, you always want to improve, You never stay the same, so you’re always trying to get better whether it’s hitting kickoffs deeper in the end zone or with more hang time or better direction or being more accurate on field goals."

He's 3/3 this preseason with a rain-soaked long of 47 yards.

"It's going well" is an understatement.  Thus far, it's outstanding.
