I would like to begin by apologizing for my last post. I went on a drunken rant that I could only describe as kissing my own ass. This is not how I do things. I would however like to talk about how Ryan Succop does things.
A couple of weeks ago during the Titans game a friend of mine texted me the phrase 'Succ it.' I've always been a supporter of Succop, but I also noticed a niche of Chiefs fans who do not like the overall 256th draft selection. So I've decided to do a brief summary of his statistics to see where he stands. Nothing earth shattering here.
- Total field goals made: 10 -- 8th in the NFL
- Field goal percentage: 83.3% -- 18th in the NFL (10/12)
- +50 Field goal percentage: 33.3% -- 19th in the NFL (1/3)
- -50 Field goal percentage: 100% -- 1st in NFL (9/9)
Succop's career field goal percentage is 81.7% Ouch. I can see why some doubters exist. However, if you keep Succop under the 50 yard mark he becomes a much better kicker. His 50+ line has to improve to be considered an excellent kicker.
I suppose the main gist of this post is to expose the phrase 'Succ it.' Nothing like nailing a field goal and then telling the opposing team that they just 'Succ'ed a fat one. Or telling a team they're going to have to 'Succ it' with 8 seconds left and the games on the line.
Seriously though, has anyone else heard this 'Succ it' line? I thought it was hilarious.
