I just think an NFL kicker should be physically capable of attempting a 50+ yard kick, just like a MLB pitcher should be able to break 90 mph with a fastball.
And considering the weather he needs to play in, it's even more important that he has a strong leg....which, sadly, he does not.
I'm not saying he sucks....I'm saying the Giants could do better.

Keep him. He did a great job! No kicker is perfect.
From the 30 he regularly kicked it down to the 3-4 yard line.
Now he often kicks it to 5 yards deep in the end zone.
I'm sure if we had a stat that followed that KO distance, we'd find that he kicks the ball 4-6 yards, on average, deeper than he did 3 years ago.
Yes. So tell me, if the rest of the team performed at the same level he did this year, are we watching the redskins this week end? Unless something a lot better comes along for the right $$$ you go with the Scotchman!
He has sent us into 2 Superbowls. Keep Him!
