Your Number For the Day


That's Nick "the Push" Folk's success percentage on field goals this year.  That number is frightening low in today's game, but I went back to put his "failure" in historical context.


Here are the five best seasons for Lou "the Toe" Groza, the most heralded kicker from the straight-ahead, kick-with-your-toe era:

Year    FG % 
'53  88.5 %
'61 69.9%
'50 68.4%
'54 66.7%
'63 65.2%


If Nick Folk were kicking in the early '60s, he would be a star.  Unfortunately for him, he kicks in 2009.  After last night's gaffe, he probably wishes he could build that time machine in his garage and join The Toe.
