Only the Best: Nick Folk

Anthony Gruppuso-US PRESSWIRE

Nick Folk has been one of the most polarizing Jets during his tenure with the team. Many have loved him and pointed to his growing collection of clutch kicks. Others have noted his below average statistics in his time with the team.

In 2013, there is not much of a debate. Folk is having a career year so far. He has made all 19 of his field goal attempts. Three of these came in either the final minute of the fourth quarter or overtime to win a game. These have not been chip shots either. Over half have been from over 40 yards.

Even more surprisingly, Folk has not sacrificed distance for greater accuracy. If anything, he has added strength to his leg. He has a touchback rate of over 50%, and his 21 touchbacks through 8 games have already set a new career high for him.

It would be quite a stretch to say Folk is the most valuable player on this team. He is not. There, however, is no other Jet with as high of a success rate at performing the job in front of him as Folk has in 2013.
