Why are there so many awful NFL kickers this year?

Almost all teams have horrible field goal kickers; they are missing easy shots.  I can on out hope this stinkers get kicked out of the NFL forever.  But what happed that the kickers suddenly all turned into mentally ill lemurs?  Were there a lot of retirements in the off season? It seems college football ball has been producing no mostly garbage NFL players to include kickers as of late... maybe 5 or 6 drafts become decent the rest wouldn’t last I a pee wee league, not just kickers.

    The Sport doesn't value the kicking game. Its no secret that the sport wants to eliminate the kicking game altogether. In 10-20 years there will be no kicking or punting in football.

    Main difference between 2019, so far, and 2013, best in NFL history, is the percentage of successfull +50 yard attempts. That's understandable since there have been a lot more +50 yard attempts in 2019 because teams have been pushing the envelope.

    It's just an anomaly that there are more bad results this year.
