K RYAN SUCCOP NAMED AFC SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK
By PR Staff

Posted 3 hours ago

The National Football League informed the Chiefs on Wednesday that K Ryan Succop has been named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his efforts in Week 15 of the 2011 NFL regular season. The award is Succop’s second Special Teams Player of the Week accolade in 2011.


Succop (6-2, 218)was four-for-four on field goal attempts with a PAT, tallying 13 points en route to a 19-14 victory vs. the previously unbeaten Green Bay Packers (12/18) at Arrowhead Stadium. The South Carolina product has been successful on 21 consecutive field goal attempts, tying him with K Nick Lowery for the second-longest streak in club history. Succop is one field goal shy of tying K Pete Stoyanovich’s all-time team record of 22 straight makes. He currently holds the NFL’s longest active streak for consecutive field goals made.

Succop’s first Special Teams Player of the Week honor came in Week 4 of the regular season when the Chiefs defeated Minnesota 22-17 at Arrowhead Stadium (10/2). Kansas City’s placekicker was five-for-five on field goal attempts with a PAT, tallying a career-high 16 points. Succop connected on a career-long 54-yard field goal in the victory and his five field goals tied the club’s record for most field goals in a single game, joining Pro Football Hall of Fame K Jan Stenerud and K Nick Lowery.

Selected as the final pick in the 2009 NFL Draft (256th overall), Succop has connected on 67 of 80 career field goal attempts (.838) and has successfully hit on 89 of 89 PATs for 290 points in 46 games with the club.

Well at least Pioli understood that if you're going to make Cassel your QB, you need a clutch kicker.

I called it after FG number 3 in Sunday's game. Wasn't sure we were going to win at that time, but I said to my wife that at least we'll have the AFC ST player of the week in Succop. :)

Succop may be among our top three kickers in franchise history.

And probably the cutest.

It's good to see the Lowery curse lose its power over this team. Couldn't find a suitable kicker for a long time.

Hmm. I'm not a good judge of that, so I'll let you make the call.

I think Dustin only had two punts sunday
Gafford pitched a high snapp so he wouldn't feel left out

Not just yet. I'd put Stoyanovich ahead of him.
Give him another year.

He missed too many extra points.

Without looking at stats, it might be...

Lowery
Stenerud (but close behind #1)
Stoyanovich
Succop (but close behind #3)
Todd Peterson?

The list drops off pretty rapidly. Am I missing a good #5?

Replace Peterson with Tynes.
Succop trails Tynes by just one field goal.
He'll need another season to catch Stoyanovich.

Why aren't more people on him for 2 blocked kicks today? Looked to me like he was kicking way too low?

The blocking was atrocious on special teams today. Both blocks were long ones, in cold weather. In that situation, the ball has to be kicked low to make it that far. Not putting the blame on Succoup, the man made 20+ straight kicks before the block.

Yea, one block is ok, but two? Breakdown somewhere? Unacceptable.

That sure didn't stop the football geniuses here on CP from posting "fire him!" at the beginning of the season when he went 2 for 5.

Both balls were EXTREMELY low. The one at the end of the game actually appeared to hit Seymour in the CHEST.
