I'm not even sure Maher will be the guy.

Hes going up against Ficken for the job.

Hes the guy.  Ficken scares me not just on FGs but extra points, Maher has missed over the last two seasons.

Maher, Mann, and Hennessy have actually been working out together in the off-season.  Maher was drilling it from 65+.

I'd feel extra confident about it, considering our long snapper is Thomas Hennessy.

 

Quite a unit we have here

yeah and Ficken replaced Kaare Vedvik or whoever

the Jets sorted out the Punter position 

the PK position is still a huge ??? 

Agreed.

I'm not sold one Maher as much as I dont like Ficken as our PK

What about having Mann do kickoffs and attempting those long 55+ yard kicks as time is expiring, while signing a very accurate but shorter yardage kicker? 

The proof that Mann can handle those long 55+ yard kicks better than even Ficken is what a Youtube video on him kicking as a HS player in a practice?  

Over a guy who has made kicks in the NFL?

Nope.  The proof of whether Mann can handle those long 55+ yard kicks better than a veteran NFL kicker will be determined in training camp.  

If you can make an argument that Ficken has made NFL kicks (true) then I can say Mann has never missed an NFL kick (also true).  A video doesn't tell us anything.  But, Brant Boyer will tell us everything. ;) 

Problem with this is there are only two games to prove this.  Kicking on a practice field without the 11 players lined up trying their best to intimidate you and coming within inches of blocking those kicks isnt the same thing.  If Maher is making kicks in practice its his job.  Even at his worst a year ago hes a better choice than Ficken.  Especially given hes missed one XTRA Pt in the last two seasons.  

\I've never missed a NFL kick (true).  You, I think, have never missed an NFL kick (true?).  We arent kicking for anyone this or any year (VERY true) 😟
