Weather is not a good punter in terms of distance. He never boots a long punt, but he really is a fantastic directional punter.
He punted 9x last week, and had 7 inside the 20, and or 3 inside the 10 with only one touch back (and the Jets ST Coverage team had a play on the ball). This week, 3 punts touched down inside the 10.
I give Weatherford a great deal of credit for the job he has done this year and the one thing I remember the most is after the poor decision on the fake punt against Green Bay, he went on inside the Jets and took 15 minutes of chiding from Wischusen and was a stand up guy taking full responsibility for the bad decision.
He just needs to keep this up now as it will only get tougher from here
Agreed and FOLK is a young kicker just coming into his own. Wetherford has been money in the bank. IN NE he failed to adjust for the windy conditions and dropped the ball a bit high. It was trouble for us but scoring 3 points was even a bigger problem. I support BOTH of our guys. They play like Jets!
[QUOTE=abs9940;3873110]I love Watherford but man, give me the Dolphins punter from last week!! :eek:[/QUOTE]
Only if you take the Dolphags FG kicker from this week ([B][SIZE=5]0[/SIZE][/B] from [B][SIZE=5]4 [/SIZE][/B]!?!!? If Folk did that the fans would be waiting outside the changing rooms with bats to break his legs! :D)
