I know we've got quite a few kicker threads, I figure I'd poll the masses to get a definitive answer on what the board feels is the best option for kicker this year.

Franks has been improving steadily since he got here. If you follow the twitter feeds his accuracy improved with each time it was his day to kick. He boots kickoffs out of the end zone and I don't think the guy has missed a 50+ yard FG yet...crazy as that might seem. He's missed a few from 49-40 but I don't remember one from 50+. I say lets go with Franks.

My question brothers is how much does the new extra point play into this? If any?

Harry Kane, a star for the English soccer team Tottenham Hotspur, says he’d like to give kicking an American football a try some day.

“It depends on how my football career goes but, when I am finished, I would love to go the NFL and be a kicker. Even if I got to play just one game it is something I would like to do. It’s a long way off yet. But it is definitely something I have thought about,” Kane told The Sun.

If your kicker is inconsistent on his field goals it means you're in trouble and might be forced to go for two when you really don't want to.
Will really come into place during the winter months.

I say Franks. I believe Sturgis' combined FG accuracy the past two years is worst in the league for any kicker that started over same time period. Can't be worse than worse.

Does anyone think it's not right how a short FG is worth more than an XP?
agree. Such a dumb rule change. Roger goodell sucks donkey balls.

Franks....we've seen a lot of changes for the better this year...this could be the cherry on top.

Plus he can have some nickname involving hot dogs....

Fin fan in cali I don't think it means anything to the competition....either way the better kicker wins, 19,31, or 51 yard extra point

Franks showed he had the power to get touchbacks, as well as make a 50 yard FG under pressure. I did want someone else to come here to compete, but the game changed my mind.

One great game should not make him the kicker, but it should put him ahead of Sturgis, and unless Sturgis outshines him in anyway this week, this should be the last we hear of Sturgis.
