    Having a weak legged kicker might become an advantage.

    If they now line up at the 35, with Nate not being able to hit the end zone, the teams will have to run it out now. The Kickoff team will now be a lot closer to the kickoff returner and the advantage should be on our side provided now as long as we do not have any more kickoff coverage breakdowns.

    The kickoff team will be closer, but the gunners can no longer get a running start. So it may negate the 5 yard advantage
