He missed 3 this week, and I think 2 each of the previous two games. He pretty much lost the GB game, along with our idiot punter (a 3-3 game is much different than a 6-0 or 9-0 one), and he tried to lose against Detroit too. If he hits his FGs this game ends in regular time.

Cut this guy and get a new kicker. They're all replaceable. When they suck you get rid of them and try a different one.

Amazing that people started thinking he was good again.

He was so bad for Dallas last seaosn than it effectively destroyed what good he had done the previous season. He's terrible from inside 50, where I would have more faith in myself. When he makes them, he makes them by inches and now we're starting to see him fall apart.

Folk sucks. Kickers suck.

Bring in some competition, but he barely missed the short one, I don't think we should panic and cut the guy yet.

Last I checked, this isn't horseshoes.. barely missing is worth as much as missing by 15 yds.

To quote Ray Lucas, "There BETTER be tryouts this week, or I'm dusting myself off to kick."

Kickers are streaky. Like SMC said, bring in competition, but cutting him would be stupid without a better replacement. If he continues to be problem cut him, but not now.

I agree. Have to have try-outs. Thing is, is they bring in someone who looks good, it might be smart to make the move. If Folk sticks and has another crappy game next week, there'll only be a couple days to bring in a new kicker before Thanksgiving. So if you don't replace Folk this week, you're pretty much committing to him for the next two.

I'd have try-outs, and I think Westoff should spend a lot of time with Folk doing whatever he did to get Folk looking good in the first place.

Bad games are bad games...We have a week to be all "zomg it happened and all of the future is in doubt," but the win pretty much covered his a$$. He'll be alright.

I'd be right there with you except he's already shown (with Dallas) that he can be a headcase and miss a ton. It isn't like there's no basis for concern.

They were saying before the game that the turf was kind of funny and that the Jets had brought multiple types of shoes. Maybe that had something to do with it.

+1

You could see his plant foot slipped and he switched shoes right after the short shank. I think it was pretty windy too, based on the way the kickoffs in one direction were hitting the back of the end zone. A terrible game to be sure, but let's not all panic. Again.

A 24 yd kick you just CANNOT miss. Folk is awful. I always thought the worst move the Jets made was not to give Feely the extra 500K and bring him back. I have ZERO confidence when folkhead Folk steps up for a kick. Cut him!

Jason Taylor + Folk > Jay Feely.
