    The last one was inexcusable..

    Didn't realize that he had been sucking this bad all season so far!

    From a PFT article:

    If this were the first slip-up by Folk, it would be easier for Koetter to stick with him. Folk missed an extra point in the team’s opener and missed three kicks (two field goals and an extra point) before making the game-winning field goal against the Giants in Week Four.

    It’s uncharacteristic as Folk only missed six kicks all of last season, but the Bucs may not be able to risk future games on a bet that Folk will rebound.

    If you are referring to Folk, agreed. He looks like mental garbage and it was painful to watch (we felt terrible for him).

    If you are referring to Brien, you have a very short memory..

    This game essentially ended his career (he had three games in Chicago the next year).

    Pay particular attention to the second game winner he missed.

    It looks just like Folk's last miss last night.


    Steelers 20, Jets 17 - At Heinz Field, Jets kicker Doug Brien missed two field goal (FF to 1:55 for the carnage)

    Folk had these issues in Dallas also whihc is why we were able to get him. Cloesest I can recall is Pat Leahy in 1982 when he was shanking XPs all over the place. I guess its like a golf swing...if you lose the rhythm its crazy hard to be successful until you get it back.

    As to the Herm/Pit reference. Not even close. The success rate for 45+ yard FGs in heinz Field (especially in that direction) we much lower then the norm and genius Herm decided to take the knee and not even try to gain more yardage and then expecyted Brien to nail a 47 yarder. Brien was an 84+% FG kicker for us until that game when Herm put him in a ridiculoosly tough situation...and then the Hemyphilies all blamed Brien (because God forbid anyone blame the "HC who got us to the playoffs 3 out of 4 years"). It took another year before the "foooled" realized what a fraud he truly was. But it was easier to blame the PK and then use a high draft pick to try and replace him...whihc also worked out so well.

    I dunno, that second miss was just as bad as what we saw last night. Neither kick was ever on line and both hooked LEFT badly.

    Granted, you raise some good points about Herm's idiocy and that it's tough to kick in that place in general. We were all screaming to get closer that night, and he pulled a Marty in SD instead, sitting on a long distance.

    And the shame is it essentially ended the guy's career.

    (BTW, this was infuriating, but what was even more infuriating was Herm PUNTING inside the opponents 40 routinely!)

    It's like the yips with putting, or Knobby not being able to throw from second to first. MENTAL.

    Brien's 2nd missed FG was all on the Fraud! Brien already looked shaky on the 1st miss & the Fraud decided to not even try to get a couple of yards for the 2nd attempt to at least make it easier.

    The stats on FGs made in that direction over 45 yards in Heinz Field that year were not good. Granted an NFL kicker should make a 47 yarder but Herm KNEW this was going to be a tough kick AND Brien had already missed once before that same direction and he STILL didnt even try to get him closer thinking a 47 yarder was some chip shot.

    Yes, Brien deserved some blame as he did miss the kick. But the vitriol directed at him and the excuse making for Herm after that game was nauseating. And the knee jerk reaction of trading away a #1 for Doug Freakin JOlley (and potentially missing out on drafting Aaron Rodgers) and taking a f-ing PK in rd 2???? SOJ.

    plus that stadium is NOTORIOUS for not giving up long FGs. Absurdly stupid play, odds on that FG were stupidly low for ANY kicker.
