For anyone who has played football, coached it, etc. how much of field goal kicking is really coaching?
I grew up playing soccer and I've always equated FG kicking to penalty kicks: meaning there are plenty of techniques, but its really more about how you handle pressure and your mental fortitude than anything else. Either you were good at them because you thrived under the pressure or you failed because you couldn't take it.
Is field goal kicking really that much about coaching?
