Nick Folk is playing like gangbusters these past few weeks. Kicker Nick Folk had five field goals including a 53-yarder, against the Vikings last night. The Jets took a big gamble in the offseason by moving on from reliable veteran kicker Jay Feely and signing LA native Nick Folk. Folk has proven to a money type of kicker. Kicking the 53-yarder was a big shocker. He made me think of Former Jets kicker Jim Turner. The need a kicker who make field goals with consistency. Nick Folk is the kicker who could guide the Jets Super Bowl bound.If Mark Sanchez can't score in the red zone, they always Nick Folk.
