He has been damn good. Glad to finally have a consistent kicker. I was very glad to see him come back strong after missing that kick in Baltimore. Kickers' minds are very fickle sometimes.

I was worried he'd go the route of Nick Folk. Glad he's proved me wrong.

Folk was very solid prior to hip injury hitting 84% and 90% - that injury really hurt, though he's back up to the 90's this year

And now you've cursed it. Never bring attention to the kicker.

Bailey has been a pleasant surprise but I still get nervous every time he sets up for a 40 plus yarder...

Bailey is a good kicker...but he did miss the game winner against Baltimore...so i wont get to excited about him till he shows me he can do it in the clutch when it counts


Peace

The game against Washington in Landover last year comes to mind.

Clutch is a silly debate, but Bailey's leg strength is not. He's unbelievably accurate up to 50, but I can't say I have much of any confidence in him past that point.

You can say that about a good number of kickers in the league, though.

I wish I could see him kick year round in Cleveland weather like Philly D has too. 83% in our weather is far more impressive then 87% in a dome.

Not his strength that's the issue, it's accuracy past 50.
