NY Times Shows Nick Folk Is Terrible, Other Fun Jets Special Team Facts

Charts!

Joe Ward, Shan Carter, and Kevin Quealy do their graphic thing on NYTimes.com, showing Nick Folk‘s successes and struggles kicking field goals.

The Jets kicker started the seasons strong, but struggled as the year wore on, missing nearly half his field goals during a four-games stretch. He regained his form, making nine in a row, but as the chart demonstrates, he’s only been called upon to kick short ones. That’s the explanation for his recent success.

They give Brad Smith‘s kick returning and Steve Weatherford‘s punting the same treatment. Check it out; It’s better than Phil Mushnick ranting and raving.
