Kicking falls under special teams and if special teams is 1/3 of the game as is always said by those in the know, why is it that there is only one coach apparantly.
here's the lopsided distribution of coaches according to the football ops list:
Head Coach (1): Greg Marshall
Offense (3): Joe Paopao, Kani Kauahi, Perry Marchese
Defense (4):Kavis Reed, Dennis McPhee, Joe Sardo, Frank Gesztesi
Special Teams(1) Jerome Erdman
So, maybe it's time to offer Bernie Ruoff a full time coaching position to assist Erdman in the kicking end of things......and given Ruoff's lengthy CFL career, I'm sure he could add some great ideas to special teams in general. He seemed to get instant results out of Boreham last year and now that we have two kickers, why now develop a good kicking/coaching/special teams program altogether.
Seems to be the logical way to go instead of throwing the kickers to the wolves with no-one helping them out really (in my opinion).....the talent is there for sure....a structured program with detailed film sessions and specific kicking drills and one-on-one stuff with Ruoff on a daily basis is maybe what's missing?....
Well, that's my offering of a creative idea/solution perhaps..... 8)
