Folk has been solid. Wish he had a bit more leg strength but his accuracy is pretty good.

Great sign. The O is going to be bad so you better have a kicker that can make 45 on in 80% or better.

I don't get this re-signing at all, the guy had his best season in 4 years [since 2008] with get this... 77.8 FG kicking percentage, 77.8 is the best he had in 4 years! Laughing

How does he keep getting re-signed? the Jets can surely do better than him can't they?

A lot of his misses were blocked field goals, our entire special teams unit was terrible no matter what they were doing.

Though I do agree with you, when they brought Josh Brown in I thought they'd sign him. He has a pretty strong leg.

It's important to understand the number, rather than just know it.

He missed six kicks last season. Three were blocked, and one miss was from beyond 50. I know a miss is still a miss, but he was pretty efficient last year when given a realistic chance to succeed.

He missed 6 FGs last season. 3 of those misses were by virtue of blocks. 2 of the other 3 misses came on FGs of 50+ yards.

And the 3 previous seasons which were actually worse than the 77.8? also blocks?

Just saying, he seems average at best... the Jets can probably do better.

which is why he continues to get 1-year deals and competition in training camp. There's no largely better FA waiting out there.

Without knowing the details, blocked kicks CAN be the fault of the kicker sometimes, whether that be timing or trajectory. I honestly don't know what the case is here. Just something to keep in mind. How would you categorize folks blocks?

Poor special teams as I said, not his fault. We just let guys through.

Yeah the blocks were bad. Complete missed assignments on two of them. Not really on Folk.

He's an average kicker. Not bad, not great. It's a fine re-signing considering the deal.

Cool. Sounds kind of familiar, but I honestly couldn't remember.
