Receiver Malcolm Mitchell was asked after Friday’s practice whether he had trust in a kicker once they got inside the 35. To be fair, the name of the kicker was never mentioned, but Mitchell expressed optimism either way.
“I’m not too worried about that,” Mitchell said. “Our kicker, I believe in him. I think he’ll hit it, without a doubt. So I don’t think there’s any pressure with that.”
Then Mitchell smiled.
“But if we get that close,” he said, “I think we might as well get the most points.”
That certainly eliminates the second guessing about whether Marshall Morgan would have hit that 45-yarder.
