Matt Bryant has been so good ever sine he arrived in Atlanta, but as of late he hasn’t been his normal self. Bryant has missed three out of his last eight attempts including two misses against the Washington Redskins. Bryant got back on track with two made field goals last week against Tampa Bay, but his longest was from only 24 yards out.

Bryant will be just fine, but his accuracy may be taking a turn for the worst. He is getting up there in age. I’m sure all of us saw this coming at some point. We just didn’t want it to be happening right now!

Matt Bosher: Grade, 94

Previous Grade: 95

Matt Bosher is second in the NFL with a 49.8-yard average per punt. He also holds the sixth longest punt after booming a 69-yard punt earlier in the year. Bosher has only punted one ball into the end zone all year which ranks him at the top of the league in that category as well.

Bosher is also fourth in the NFL in touchback percentage on kickoffs this year at 77 percent. Bosher had one of his punts blocked against the Saints, so because of that, i’m dropping his grade by one point but who cares.

This man is good, folks. Keep on doing ya thing!
