Full Version: Oh Henery
Eagles Forum > Philadelphia Eagles Message Board > Philadelphia Eagles or Football Related Discussion
Akers was a FA, one of the best kickers we've seen around here and he actually tackled. Henery was a fourth round pick and a pencil neck?!?!?!
Brian Solomon of did the best kicker study I've seen this offseason. For field goals, he measured each kicker against the league average, taking distance into account. Solomon found that Henery ranked 26th when compared to his peers. Football Outsiders, meanwhile, ranked the Eagles 25th on field goals/extra points.

In all, Henery missed six of 30 field goal attempts. Five of those were from 45+ yards out. Two missed wide right, and four missed wide left.
On kickoffs, the study showed Henery to be 32nd in the NFL. Football Outsiders ranked the Eagles 31st as a team. And they notched kickoffs just 40 percent of the time (24th in the NFL).
Ouch ...

Can't wait to see what game he cost us this season

On the bright side at least we locked up Donnie "Punt God" Jones
