As of right now there are two kickers vying for the Jets starting job, Nick Folk and Josh Brown, who was cut by the Rams. Both Folk and Brown made the top five list of most inaccurate kickers of 2011 with a 75% accuracy for Brown and 76% for Folk respectivly. Brown, coming off his worst statistical season, as he told Jenny Ventras of NJ.com:
“Everything kind of just went sour, and it was time for a change.”
In 2011, Sparano’s Dolphins ranked in the top ten at field goals attempted. Based on that stat alone the Jets need a kicker that can do better than make a third of their kicks. So is drafting a kicker a sound decision?
