Starting this week, we’re going to try something new. Instead of having to wait to see our edited video package on TV49, we’ll upload some Flip videos as soon as possible.
It was certainly a day that Schmitt will remember for years to come. Picked up earlier in the week after Joe Nedney sustained a hamstring injury, Schmitt didn’t have much time to prepare mentally and physically for his first NFL regular season game. Schmitt finished the day with two field goals of 33 and 39 yards to go along with two extra points.
“It was exciting,” Schmitt said. “I was more excited that nervous, so going out there it was great knocking that first on through.”
Special teams coordinator Al Everest was pleased with Schmitt’s effort, especially considering the limited amount of preparation time.
“When you have a veteran guy, preparation’s not so bad,” Everest said. “They know what’s up and they know what to expect. For Ricky being in a regular season game, he has a 280 blood pressure. The bottom line is he played pretty well and we’ll go from there.”
