Folk has missed some mind blowing kicks in his tenure, but he's NEVER missed a GW kick as a Jet and he's not as bad as many Jet fans make him out to be. Josh Brown started off in Seattle but ended up getting comfortable and cozy in the St. Louis dome and just couldn't kick in MetLife Stadium. Last week it was the cross bar, this week it was wide and the final straw.
That 45 yarder pretty much decided it. Folk made all of his attempts. I think Brown had a kick he made from 30 yards hit the cross bar. Best of luck to Brown. Folk is the guy. He's been pretty good for us the last two years.
The FGs I'm fine with. I wish Folk could consistently hit the back of the endzone on kickoffs though*. It hasn't been a huge issue since our coverage is so good but it'd be nice to get a touchback greater that 33% of the time.
I was really hoping Brown would win the battle but Folk did deservedly so. I still think folk sucks on kickoffs and is very shaky at times. At least they brought in some legit competition this year, unlike for punter.
