- HC Marvin Lewis gave K Mike Nugent a vote of confidence on Monday, despite the fact that he’s gotten off to poor start this season.
“We have a lot of confidence in Mike,” Lewis said on The Coaches Show, via NFL.com. “He has a job to do that no one pays much attention until you gotta go kick the game-winning field goal, PAT, you’re looking for a big kickoff. And when it doesn’t come out on his side, everybody feels bad, but there were a lot of football plays offensively and defensively that impacted that football game way before the game-deciding kick could have happened.”
