That'll About Do It For Nick Folk In Tampa

Share

Hopefully Nick Folk is renting his place in Tampa because he might not be working there much longer after the meltdown he had on national television against New England on Thursday night.

Folk missed two field goals and one extra point last week against the Giants and three field goals against the Patriots in Week 5. Coach Dirk Koetter didn't indicate if that would definitely remain the case, saying only that the team would not make a snap decision about the future of the guy they picked as their kicker because Roberto Aguayo couldn't stop missing kicks. Second-round draft pick Roberto Aguayo went 31-of-43 previous year and was cut during the preseason in favor of Folk. He missed two field goals and an extra point the week before.

Folk missed a 56-yard field goal attempt at the end of the half and later a 49-yard kick in the rhird quarter.

"We'll talk about that", Koetter said.

"It's unfortunate because he's been really solid in practice", Koetter said. "Jason and I had a brief conversation afterwards". Just four games, obviously, but Folk has made 54.5 percent of his FG attempts and 77.8 of his PATs.

India won the toss and chose to bowl first with skipper Virat Kohli citing the weather factor as the reason behind it. Australia were without their regular captain Steven Smith , who had to fly back home after injuring his shoulder.

Let's take a look at some of the tweets that were sent out after Folk missed his third kick of the game.

In comes Nick Folk, but the Bucs' problems certainly haven't been solved.

Folk is now 6-of-11 for the season.

If this were the first slip-up by Folk, it would be easier for Koetter to stick with him.
