Eddy Pineiro

Chicago Sun-Times - - SPORTS -

Op­ti­mist: Not bring­ing a sec­ond kicker to camp turns into a win­ning move, as Pineiro — af­ter a men­tally tax­ing year con­stantly on the bub­ble — re­sponds to the vote of con­fi­dence by tak­ing a big step toward ma­tur­ing into a re­li­able, head­strong Sol­dier Field kicker.

Pes­simist: Un­chal­lenged in train­ing camp af­ter the kicker derby of 2019, Pineiro is un­able to take the next step and strug­gles with con­sis­tency. His con­fi­dence erodes amid con­stant ques­tions about his misses and talk of bring­ing in a chal­lenger. He’s not the an­swer.
