  1. Santos is who he is. Looking at his history since his groin injury, he has made zero field goals of 45 yards or more. He has now had six attempts in that range and missed all of them – before coming to Tampa and now in Tampa. His kickoffs do not go through the end zone. When he made the 43 yarder it barely made it over the crossbar.

    To expect him to all of a sudden be automatic beyond 44 yards is not realistic. He does not have the leg. He might make one out of ten attempts, but he is not going to be great from a long distance. He is a stop gap solution and won’t be a permanent solution no matter what Reynolds thinks and any other analyst. He is good for what Tampa can get in the middle of the season. He makes extra points, and shorter field goals. Just don’t ask him to kick a lot of long field goals of 40 or more.
