Could Justin Tucker follow in Gary Anderson and Mike Vanderjagt’s shoes by never missing a field goal during the regular season? (Credit: AP Photo/Patric Schneider) Last season, Baltimore Ravens rookie kicker Justin Tucker was a bright spot on the Super Bowl champions team. Tucker, ended the season with the sixth best field goal percentage at 90.9 percent. While making 91 percent of your field goals might be good for some kickers, for Tucker it isn’t good enough. For the 2013 season, Justin Tucker says he wants to never miss a field goal. “It’s not unrealistic to say that I can have a perfect regular season kicking field goals and extra points,” Tucker told the team’s website. “It’s just a matter of, no pun intended, putting in the leg work right now.” Tucker was also 42 for 42 on extra points during the regular season and went a perfect 4 for 4 in field goals and 16 for 16 in extra points in the Playoffs. Tucker knows if he is going to be perfect he has to keep working on his kicking. “Every single day is the same,” Tucker said. “When I got here a calendar year ago, I was thinking the exact same thing I’m thinking now: how can I get better and contribute to the success of this team?” In case you were wondering, ProFootballTalk reports Gary Anderson and Mike Vanderjagt are the only two kickers to ever be perfect on field goals during the regular season. Anderson went 35-for-35 in the regular season for the 1998 Vikings and Vanderjagt went 37-for-37 for in the regular season for the 2003 Colts.
