Who is the worst high pressure kicker in NFL history?
 
I don't see how it isn't Mike Vanderjagt.

Razor 07-06-2012 07:18 AM

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

Brent 07-06-2012 09:03 AM



I still hate the guy.

Ravens1991 07-06-2012 09:18 AM

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.

doug brien was my hero in 2005

it has to be vanderjact, a hero of mine in the 2006 playoffs

killxswitch 07-06-2012 09:28 AM

Look at this douchebag. It's him. He's the worst, ever.

Kaeding needs more love.

vikes_28 07-06-2012 10:31 AM

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

bigbluedefense 07-06-2012 11:19 AM

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.

Don't forget about me.

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...

tjsunstein 07-06-2012 06:27 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.

Justin Medlock

Neil Rackers was always horrible with the game on the line

KCJ58 07-06-2012 09:56 PM

The Gramatica brothers and Justin Medlock

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.

WCH 07-07-2012 02:15 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.
