      4-of-4 kicks on the skinny posts.

      Sorry about that. Last edit didn’t save.

    This may be a silly question given what the Jets have done this offseason but do you get a sense of why they cut Folk? He was there for quite a while (for a kicker) and Catanzaro (their current kicker) was awful last year for Arizona. Maybe it was Folk’s decision to move on?

      I really don’t know. Complacency, I guess? Folk was hitting better percentages during his last four years than his middle years since going to the Pro Bowl.

    People should stop fretting over the kicking position. There was an excuse with the Aguayo draft pick on the basis that Jason Licht drafted a kicker in the 2nd round. That’s now history. There are lots of kickers available, Folk seems about average if not better.

    Far more important that the Bucs stop needing to kick so damned many field goals! We were one of the worst teams in the league last year in red zone efficiency at 51.5%, and so far in the two pre-season games, we’re even doing much worse – around 40% efficient in the RZ. We need to kick it up to the mid 60s at least to put us in the upper 1/3 of the league. if we get that much better this year, we won’t need many field goals to win games.

      I agree Naplesfan. I believe Folk will be fine. Yes, the bucs must get much better in the red zone this year. I believe they will with the new weapons on the offense this year. Hopefully, we start to see it this Saturday. Go Bucs!

    I’m much more comfortable with Folk because he has a proven record. Go Bucs!

    Agreed on the red zone guys- hoping the lack of efficiency at this point is not trying to show too much in preseason…
