After Monday night’s 45-3 shellacking in Foxboro, the Jets have bigger problems than a kicker who missed by a large margin a 53-yard field goal try. I mean, does anyone think that the Jets would have won if Nick Folk had made that kick?
And so, a week after flirting with Kris Brown, the Jets currently plan to keep Folk around.
Per Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger, coach Rex Ryan said Tuesday that he believes Folk “will be our guy.” Ryan also assumed some of the blame for having Folk try a field goal from the far end of his range early in the game.
“Maybe that’s something I need to look at, is maybe not attempt that kind of kick, his first kick of the day,” Ryan said. “Maybe that’s something I need to look at.”
Or maybe Rex and the Jets need to look for a kicker who won’t kick the ball farther left than George Soros.
