I don't see how it isn't Mike Vanderjagt.

In recent memory? Billy Cundiff. Thanks, Billy. Also Nick Folk...

I still hate the guy.

Billy Cundiff no debate. I sitll cant believe he is the highest paid kicker in the history of the NFL. He took 3 years to juice out of his ******* mind then when they make PED rules he stinks like he did before his first year with us.

I still cant get Gary Anderson out of my head. lol

It's Vandy. But Kaeding is up there too.

But yeah, Vanderjagt hands down is the worst.

Nate Kaeding - Career FG%

Regular Season: 86.5% (best in NFL history)
Postseason: 53.3%

Lol. You're right. He only missed 1 clutch field goal in his days...it was a damn huge miss too.

But i still stand with what i said about kaeding.

I understand that pressure kicks are attempted in the regular season, but true pressue comes in the post-season. With that said...

Norwood may have one of the most famous misses in NFL history, but he was 13-18 (72%) career in the playoffs and 2-3 in Super Bowls.

Billy Cundiff was 12-14 (86%) in the playoffs.

Mike Vanderjagt was 11-14 (79%) in his career in the postseason.

Nate Kaeding, on the other hand is only 8-15 (53%) in the post-season.

This guy...

07-06-2012, 05:27 PM
Kaeding is clearly Vanderjagts understudy but who's after Kaeding? The Chargers need to get back to the postseason for Kaeding to defend his title.

I hate Doug Brien.

thank you, broth, for reminding me of this scene.

07-06-2012, 08:40 PM
Neil Rackers was always horrible with the game on the line

07-06-2012, 08:56 PM
The Gramatica brothers and Justin Medlock

all though did he even play during the regular season?

Medlock did attempt 2 regular season FGs making only 1 and was released after week 1.

1 name sticks out to me, Lindley Franklin Elliott Jr. he missed from 35, 39 and 42 in a 3 point game in a playoffs that the Chiefs had Home Field through out. mentioning his name in KC starts fights.

07-07-2012, 01:15 PM
Medlock just didn't belong in the NFL and never should have been drafted. He certainly shouldn't have been drafted ahead of Crosby. I can't imagine what the Chiefs were thinking.

A lot of the guys being mentioned were just not great kickers. You have to figure that if a guy makes 75% of his FGs, he misses one of four. It's not a shocker if these guys miss some in the post season. Kaeding is a neat case because he really does seem to have choked his ass off.

Also, Norwood didn't have a very good hold on his kick. It's the most famous miss in NFL history, but it wasn't entirely his fault.

07-07-2012, 01:17 PM
Kaeding and Rackers are the worst of the last 5 years or so.

But Vanderjagt is still the king of chokers.

Kaeding's numbers are nothing short of abysmal in the postseason. At least Vanderjagt still made 80 percent of his kicks.

Damn I never saw this entire interview:
