It's a question of what you emphasize and say to the media after a win. Blaming Brindza on a day when he made a game-winning kick for previous losses (especially mother fucking North-fucking-western) isn't something that should be in the discussion at that point.
Edit to add:
I'd also point out that the implication that we lost previous games because of missed kicks is not a "fact." It's only a fact that in previous games that we lost, we missed them. One could argue causation, and suggest that kicking shouldn't have ever come into play.
