Big Blue Nation is quite tired of seeing the same inconsistent kickers shuffled around the NFL while Austin MacGinnis is sitting at home by the phone after going 10 for 10 in the XFL earlier this year, among all those daggers he hit for the Cats back in college. (Like this one to beat NFL MVP Lamar Jackson on his own dirt.)
In the latest infuriating kicker signing from the league, the Cincinnati Bengals claimed Austin Seibert, not Austin MacGinnis, off waivers. Seibert was a Cleveland Brown in Week 1, but was let go yesterday after he missed a field goal and an extra point in a loss to Lamar Jackson’s Baltimore Ravens.
Seibert was picked up by the Bengals two days before Cincinnati travels to Cleveland to play the Browns on Thursday Night Football. He’s an insurance policy with the status of Randy Bullock’s calf and credibility still in the air.
Between this and last night’s Titans game, the Austin MacGinnis Fan Club is a wounded fan club today. Just give a him a chance already.
