Brett Maher seems to be the only one going wrong with the Dallas Cowboys these days. He was consistent in the regular season with his conversions and field goals and was one of the most reliable performers, even when others struggled. Now that seems to have turned around in the playoffs.
In the final game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the wild card round, Brett Maher missed four extra points. It got to the point when the Cowboys took a chance on fourth-and-four that resulted in a touchdown. Dallas fans would have hoped they would have gotten over their hiccups by the time the game against the San Francisco 49ers came around.
But that doesn’t seem to be happening. As the Dallas Cowboys tried to score a touchdown to go up 6-3, Brett Maher missed another conversion. His attempt was blocked. However, it looked like if it hadn’t been blocked, it would have gone left anyway.
Dallas Cowboys fans were understandably disappointed by this development. They cannot keep the lost points without costing them in this game or future games. He made his feelings clear on social media.
The Life of Brett Maher: Unnoticed when good, in the eye of the storm when missed.
Kickers are never really seen in an NFL game. When they score, it is taken for granted. But when they remember, only then does their significance emerge.
The San Francisco 49ers knew this and tried. Go into the seal’s head before the game. Her latest miss wouldn’t have helped her confidence either. It doesn’t help that Texas Governor Greg Abbott has now decided to pile on. Brett Maher is below. This is not something one would expect from a leader, but one can understand his frustration as a follower.
To give some perspective on Brett Maher’s struggles, this is a professional who has been in the league since 2013. His career conversion rate on extra points is 93%.
Only in this game, where Doc Prescott Throwing two interceptions in the first half, it could be said that the quarterback was responsible for keeping the opposition in the game. Both interceptions set up field goal attempts. But such is the life of a cook: only noticed when bad, and completely ignored when good.
