    After watching that 58 yard fg, I thought the Jets have had huge amount of 50+ fg attempts made against them the past few years.

    I checked to see if that was correct and it is...

    2011 - 6/7
    2010 - 2/2
    2009 - 0/0
    2008 - 2/2
    2007 - 1/1

    Over the past 5 years teams are 11/12 from 50+ yards!!!!
    Now I know why I keep saying to myself that these long fgs are always good.
    Incidently, this year opposing teams are a fantastic 27/28 (96%) in fg attempts!!!

    Yea I say it every game. No one misses fgs against the Jets. They make long fgs look easy.

    Your other posts are so bad I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not.

    There isn't a single kicker in the NFL -- and I bet going back to 1970 there aren't more than 1 or 2 in NFL HISTORY !!! -- who have that kicking % overall and from 50-yards.

    That we have it combined with every other kicker we play is bizarre.

    Almost as bizarre as the RZO data I posted (see thread).

    Was anyone surprised when Carpenter made that 58-yarder?

    Just bad luck :beer:

    Should get Sanchez out there with his long arms to block some FG's.

    Remember when we blocked like six kicks two years ago to get into the AFC Championship game? I think this is karma.

    Bad decision-making, not bad luck, is the reason why the Jets lead the league in a more important statistic: Opponents' points off turnovers.

    But yes the long FG's does seem a bit bad karma.

    not only do opponents not miss FG's, but 90% of them go right down the middle.

    I thought another poster in another thread said kickers missed 1 FG all year against the Jets. If true, that's crazy considering all the 50+ yarders.

    Kickers raped us all season. I think they missed one kick all year.
