The Succop arguments are just stupid.
You don't need an elite kicker to win a SB.
Last 5 SB winning kickers:
John Carney/Garrett Hartley
Only Reed had a significantly better kicking percentage than Succop the year he won the SB.
80 percent kicker is just fine. The only reason you might lose a SB with an 80 percent kicker is because your QB is a POS.
Alex Smith's current 9.8 YPC is one of the lowest marks in the NFL over the last 10 seasons. Only a few QBs have been worse:
Ryan Mallett (9.8), Derek Carr (9.4), Christian Ponder (9.8), Brady Quinn (9.8), Ryan Fitzpatrick (8.6), Brodie Croyle (9.7), Charlie Frye (9.7), Bruce Gradkowski (9.4), David Carr (9.2)
