What if the Chargers never became enamored by a UDFA kicker from Georgia Southern, whose highlights lit up the imagination of team officials and fellow players, alike? What if his spiral, whirly-twirly field goal didn’t exist? Would the Chargers have fallen so hard for Younghoe Koo?
What if the team decided it was the smarter, safer option to stick with the kicker who had been with the team the last several years instead of trusting a pivotal role, in a pivotal year with the unproven Koo? Recency bias aside, after seeing how early and often the kicking game caused the fans head-splitting frustration and agony, I knew it would be the perfect topic for the “What if?” articles. There are three specific games that ended in a loss with some pretty obvious ties to the kicker of the team, and we are going to relive each one of them.
Sorry in advance, Charger fans.
