Analysis

Like punters, the kickers are starting to settle into an equilibrium as well. Even though Boswell has pretty clearly been the best kicker this year, Justin Tucker will probably get the All Pro nod over him simply because of the big name and his historic long field goal earlier in the year.

On the flip side, the Jets should be looking for a new kicker this offseason, as Ammendola has really struggled. He’s 0-3 from greater than 50, and only 2 of 5 from longer than 40. That is not nearly good enough for a kicker in 2021.

First point – good list. Second point – appreciate the work. I would make an extra point but do not want to rub it in Harrison’s face.
