I'm sure this is posted in jest, but kickers don't need to gel with anyone but the holder. They don't need to learn a playbook. They don't to pick up man or zone assignments. They are a singular commodity that can be plugged into a system at any point in its development.

Really? Is this a serious post, or all in jest? First off, what the hell does a kicker have to do with the youth movement? Sencond off, I doubt Sams wins the job, Herm obviously has a bigger boner for Savage that Star Wars boy has for LJ.

I didn't say he was REALLY old, or even that Novak and Barth are better.

I know it isn't that big of a deal, but the premise of young guys will play, young guys will have to make plays to win the game was not applied here. The fact remains that we are STILL picking up other teams cast offs. Feely wasn't a cap casualty, he was cut. That means the Fins front office thinks they've got a guy BETTER than Feely. So we get what's left.

I was pulling for Barth. I was hoping our tenure of shitty talent evaluation was done. I was hoping he would come through and be a decent kicker. But no. We get other teams table scraps.

I like Feely. He did good things in NY and apprently was pretty accurate in Miami, but I'm kinda torqued that we gave up on the kid.

Is this Kendrell Bell? No. But it's still reverting to the old ways, and I'm not very happy about it.

It's not that they aren't important. It's that they aren't integral to growing together as a team. Gelling as a team is getting in rhythm in the passing game, coordinating assignments, whether in blocking on O or coverage assignments on D. If you can kick off and kick field goals, you can export that talent anywhere without upsetting them chemistry of the rest of the team [unless you're a smaque talker like a certain Colts kicker].
The ONLY thing that matters about them is how reliably they can put the ball between the uprights and how far they can kick off RIGHT NOW. Not his age, not his pedigree, not his historical ties to the team.
He's a very specific tool.

With Feely your getting a guy whose accurate from 45 yards or less. However he gets real spotty beyond that unless he has a good wind behind him. You'll hate his kickoffs as he will routinely kick em only to the 5-10 and sometimes only the 15 yard line.

You'll also hear a lot from Feely. The guy never shuts up. Your local reporters will love him as he will always talk with them and give them quotes.

But the main thing that matters is when you need someone to kick under 45 yards he's pretty automatic.

Short kickoffs + bad special teams = short field to defend

And this defense isn't capable of keeping the opposition out of the EZ when they only have to go 60-65 yards instead of 80-85.

Yup he will be great there, but you also have to factor in his short kickoffs and giving teams a shorter way to go to score on you.

It got so bad between our shoddy coverage teams and his short kicks that Cameron had him squib kicking at times.

http://miamiherald.typepad.com/dolphins_in_depth/2008/08/kicker-jay-feel.html

Feely confirmed the release on a local radio and in conversations with local reporters, which he called to volunteer the information. That very move is one small reason the Dolphins had Feely on a very short leash. Bill Parcells hated the fact Feeley was so media friendly.

Last season, for example, special teams assistant Keith Armstrong bemoaned the fact that in one game alone, Feely's low and short kickoffs cost the Dolphins 80 yards of field position.

http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/football/pro/dolphins/sfl-feely080608,0,4763704.story

Feely also hit all 26 of extra-point attempts last season, but only had eight touchbacks. That was partly due to former coach Cam Cameron instructing Feely to squib-kick because he didn't trust his coverage units.

Coverage teams were not helped by his short kicks either where the runner had 10 yards to run before anyone got down field despite the ball landing at the 10 or so.

Any kicker outside of 45 is pretty spotty.

We haven't had a kicker around here hit from 45 routinely in a while.



Tynes did pretty good beyond 45. It was all those misses inside 45 yards that really stunk.

I'm puzzled. He's coming off his best year ever with over 90% accuracy. Can't find anything specifically as to why (I started reading the thread but got bored with it so if the answer is below, just quote it for me).

Also, anyone know how strong his leg is? Can he put it in the endzone on kickoffs?

Money on 45 in, but is really shaky on kickoffs.

Well, I have read the thread, Mr. PastorMikH, and the answer seems to be that Herm love him some squid kicking, no range, stumpy leg man.

Great.

Short kickoffs + bad special teams = short field to defend

And this defense isn't capable of keeping the opposition out of the EZ when they only have to go 60-65 yards instead of 80-85.

Not to say Feely's kickoffs are any great shakes, but going by this data here...

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/stats/2007/kickoffs/0_byTB_PCT.html

He had a touchback % rate of 13.6 on his kickoffs (8 out of 59 attempts). John Carney and Dave Rayner are both listed below him. So is Tynes and if you go back to the 2006 data, Tynes had one of the worst TB% rates in the league at 6.6.

So even if Feely isn't great in that department, he appears better than what we've had.

If Feely is shaky on kickoffs, how would Colquit do? As strong as he is on punting, if he can kick off, he should be able to put it out of the endzone.

Barth kicked it 5 yds deep into the endzone against Miami. Don't know about his accuracy though. We need all the FG's we can get. It takes about 8 of them to win an NFL game.

Psssssttttt, I was talking about our punter kicking off, not our soon to be cut kicker

With the way our D is tackling, we'll probably need about 25 FGs to win.

Yeah, I know who our punter is. I was just pointing out that we are about to cut a guy who can get it into the EZ. We don't know if #2 can or not.

I have been impressed with Barth, but even when talk first started about him, I had my doubts about him making the team. After Medlock, I don't see Herm trusting a rookie with the job no matter how good he does in camp.

with Carl's job on the line he expects to be in at least half of the games this season, thus the kicker better be getting the wins win it counts. Therefore hopefully the Chiefs can potentially have a 6-8 win season showing some improvement saving Carl's ass. He is not going to put his job on the line with rookie kickers if he doesn't have to AGAIN!

Chiefs signed K Jay Feely to a one-year contract.
Feely isn't great on kickoffs, but K.C. won't be doing much of that anyways. The 32-year-old is accurate, having nailed 44 of his last 50 field goal tries. He's a big upgrade over Nick Novak and Connor Barth.

so if a kicker "doesn't count" towards any kind of youth movement then why don't we just stop drafting them etc?

The official story from the Phins was that Carpenter was beating him. Feely disagreed, saying they were even and his kickoffs were better. And there was a lot of talk that Bill "kickers should be seen and not heard" Parcells didn't like Feely from the get-go because Feely does a lot of media interviews and stuff.

Feely was also named a team captain last year, and supposedly Parcells (and/or Sparano) was upset about that too.
