But if we are sitting at the 39 on 3rd and 8 with a Zane Gonzalez type, Herm is probably telling Hill we would be fine to get 4-5 yards. The entire approach to the remainder of the drive starts to look different if you think your kicker is good to 50+ vs. 40.
Alternatively, if it is 4th and 5 from the 33, Herm would likely prefer a FG, but with CZ, you have to go for it.
Either way, having a kicker with limited range needs to change how Herm/Hill manage down and distance once we start to get into plus territory.
