    I'm not sure this has been posted, but I thought I'd mention it in case the board, in general, wasn't aware.

    It's not yet official as he needs another 30 or so attempts, but Dan Bailey, as of now, is the all time NFL leader in career FG percentage at 89.7%. He has a 2% lead over Alex Henery who also hasn't officially qualified yet, but if he continues on his current pace, by the end of the year, he will supplant Vanderjagt from the top position on the list. Last year, he had 26 attempts from inside the 40, and he was successful on all of them. He has also never missed an extra point.

    Recently, Jerry Jones said that he was open to the idea of extending Bailey when the time comes, but I honestly don't see how he couldn't. You don't let guys like Bailey walk.

    I don't know why, but this post reminded me of the fake Jason Garrett skit from 2011. haha

    I don't think I'm going to make Bailey anything too big salary-cap-wise right now.
    Let's see him do it at least 2 years in a row before we redo it.

    Ya know..?

    I think the OP meant don't let him get away when that time comes, not give him a big pay raise right now. It would be great if Bailey is the answer for years to come. I thought Folk was going to be the man and I had high hopes for The Buehler. You just can't take a great kicker for granted. I hope we found one in Bailey because they're hard to find.

    I'm pretty surprised that there isn't an NFL kicker who finished a long career with a career % of higher than 90% on field goals.

    You should go try to kick some 35 yard field goals sometime.

    *Knock on wood* its so nice to have a reliable kicker again. I really thought we had it in Folk, was upset when we released him. Here's to 10+ years of relative consistency!

    He's a lot like Vanderjact in a certain way.

    Wish he was more like Vinatieri if you know what I'm gettin at/

    That's because he wants to get that 10.3% out of the way right now.

    C'mon Dodger...do you really think that I believe in curses? Ok maybe a little cause if he stinks it up this year I will put all the blame on this post you created and really believe it to be all your fault
