    Good...I hope Dan wins the job. Feely is kind of an A-hole who thinks he always speaks for his entire team.

    Carpenter will win the job with this power-leg, then miss crushing FGs that will doom AZ's season. LoL AZ. (your state sucks and your govt is evil [though so is FLA's]).

    Good luck Dan. Thanks for some very good years, but the end was near after missing big kicks last season.

    wish carp the best. he missed a couple of kicks but he was still our kicker. I always liked the guy and hope for him the best. even if not for the couple missed kicks im sure we still looked to replace him cheaper this season anyways

    If feeley makes a decent dollar then they will go with Carp. Many kicker battles have nothing to do with one kicker doing better than another .
    Carpenter didn't take the job from Feeley here, Feeley's mouth hurt him here and Carpenter made rookie money. BAsed on talent its a close call.
    Feeley played at a pro bowl level last year hitting 25 of 28 kicks with one of 61 yards,

    It's safe to say Feeley won't be adding Carpenter to his Christmas card list if he beats him out for a job a second time.

    It would suck for feeley because both years he had dominant years kicking and would be cast aside. His season in Miami was one of the best in our history

    Meh, that's the business of the NFL....especially for kickers. It's almost always never a stable job unless you're someone like Janikowski. Hell even Vinatieri couldn't keep a job in New England even after winning the Pats three Super Bowls. Feely will find a job with someone else.

    When u kick 25 out of 28 and u can hit them from distance too your job should not even be up for competition. Im not sure Feeley loses his job. The year we cut him he was 21 of 23.
    I think its stupid to cut an accurate kicker. The real decision will be do u pay feeley 1.5 million or go low budget with carpenter.
    Feeley has hit 86 percent of his field goals the past 3 years and was 5 of 7 from beyond 50 yards. Carpenter has only one season of that good of percentage and is not as good from long range.
    The past three years Feeley has been a much better kicker and its not close so if they change kickers its just going low budget.

    So what happened to stats don't matter? :lol:

    Seriously, though, I couldn't really care less what Arizona does with their kicker. I just think it's hilarious that those two are battling it out for a job again. We've got our kicker and while he's not proven yet, he does come with a good history.

    I remember the outspoken Feeley kicking off to Ginn and giving up two TD's in a row. Mike Westoff was dumbfounded. I loved it.

    I never said stats don't matter. Some positions are harder to tell by stats but kicker is a position for the most part where stats tell most of the story.
    Feeley is more accurate and better from long range. Stats don't lie on that one. Now where stats can get tricky is on kickoffs.

    Im pretty sure it was the jets special teams that gave up the tds lol

    Would have been a better idea based on who he has to beat out. I think AZ might have been concerned that Feeley was banged up because he was pro bowl like last year and as a pure kicker he is among the better kickers in league. Carpenter is a good kicker but Feeley at his best is one of the best in league
