Last week, 49ers return man Ted Ginn ran back two kicks for scores. This week, Cowboys kicker David Buehler has an idea about what Dallas needs to do to prevent that.
“As long as you hit him in the mouth earlier, I think he might give up,” Buehler told the Dallas Morning News.
Buehler previously said he thinks the NFL is getting too soft, so he’s a kicker who likes contact. Or at least talking about contact. But Buehler also knows that his job is to keep Ginn in the end zone, not to tackle Ginn when Ginn takes it out of the end zone.
“If the wind is at my back, hopefully I’ll get the green light and be able to kick a touchback and keep it out of Ted Ginn’s hands because he is a dangerous returner,” Buehler said.
The Cowboys just hope he’s not as dangerous in Week Two as he was in Week One.
