Week 4 is in the books and the rookies continue to shine in the league. With some fantastic quarterback play this week from the likes of Robert Griffin III and Ryan Tannehill, you would expect that a quarterback would win this one easily. Not so fast. There was also some great running backs on display as well. But we aren’t going with one of them either. Receivers? Nope. Okay, so maybe you picked someone on defense. Chandler Jones has been outstanding this year for the Patriots, it has to be him. Sorry, it’s not Chandler Jones.
The NFL Week 4 SCB Rookie of the Week is a kicker.
Greg Zuerlein of the St. Louis Rams did things that a rookie kicker has never done in a game. He also did things that any kicker in the history of the game has never done in a game. He was that good against the Seahawks this week as he went 4 for 4 in field goals hitting one from 58 and one from 60 in the same game. The 60 yarder was a franchise record (as was the 58 yarder earlier in the game) and he is the first kicker in history to hit one from both 60+ and 50+ in the same game. Not bad for a first year kicker.
While I don’t think Greg Zuerlein has ANY football cards, I’d imagine he would be a great addition to any Rams or kicker collector. Let’s try and get Greg his first NFL football trading card, eh?
