This just made me wonder if anyone keeps a statistic for the combined yardage of FGs made in a career, and which of our kickers kicked the most yards to achieve their feat.
I believe Olindo Mare currently holds that crown. Olindo is statistically the best kicker in dolphins history but Jason Sanders looks well on his way to taking that crown. He is kicking amazingly well, credit to our old special teams coach Darren Rizzi for a great find.
He's been Mr Automatic this season. And just about all his kicks have been straight down the middle, none just sneaking in between the posts at the last second.
I think Ferguson's long snaps must be an under-rated consistent benefit to him too, many wondered why we used a 6th round pick on a long-snapper but if his contribution to our kicking game is making it no longer a worry when we have to kick FG's, he's worth the low draft pick price.
Sanders is excelling, and that's good to see. I wonder if they will try a play like the Mountaineer Shot again.
As strange as it sounds, I'd take an excellent special teams contributor regardless of position in the 6th all day.
In my eyes late picks are generally useless, you're aiming for special teams and guys who maybe have talent but character issues.
Taking random WR X in the 6th almost never pans out.
Don't know about yardage but, Olindo Mare holds the team record for the most points scored, 1,048 points with 245 filed goals and 313 extra points over a 154 game period
Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders still hasn’t missed this season, and his perfect game on Sunday earned him an NFL honor.
Sanders was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week after he went 5-for-5 on field goals and 4-for-4 on extra points in the Dolphins’ 43-17 win at San Francisco.
Sanders is now 14-for-14 on field goals and 10-for-10 on extra points this season. Sanders has also been excellent on kickoffs, with 24 touchbacks on 31 attempts.
In just two games in October, Sanders is 10-for-10 on field goals. A Player of the Month award may be coming as well.
I don't know about combined yardage, but Sanders is the only kicker in Dolphins history who's better than 50% on kicks of 50+ yards. He's now 6/8 after last week, and is already tied for the 4th most 50+ yard FGs made.
Pete Stoyanovich: 14/28
Olindo Mare: 14/30
Dan Carpenter: 10/20
Jason Sanders: 6/8
Celeb Sturgis: 6/13
Garo Yepremian: 5/21
Uwe Von Schamann: 4/15
Andrew Franks: 2/4
Fuad Reveiz: 1/7
Olindo and Pete. 2 names I haven't seen in a long time.
From 1989-2006, one of them was the Fins kicker every year except for 1996. Back then, I didn't know what it felt like not to have one of the best kickers in the league on our team.
Our special teams were lights out. Until they released the coach, I can't remember his name, and he went to one of our rivals and they started kicking our special teams asses.
Mike Westhoff. He and Wanny didn't like one another, and he went to the Jets in 2001. He was replaced with Keith Armstrong, who was fine.
Even with a small slump he should destroy those percentages.
He should. Kickers are so much more athletic and powerful today than they used to be.
I agree Olindo was one of the best, but I don't agree about Stoyanovich. He was a choke artist in clutch situations. I have never forgiven him for missing the game winning field goal against the chargers in the 94' playoffs. He makes that field goal and we would have most probably gone to the superbowl and maybe won it that year. That was the last year we were superbowl contenders. It's been a terrible 26 year slump since then.
No doubt a painful memory. That 94 team was the best in my time as a fan, and we haven't been close since. But a 48 FG wasn't as regularly made back then as it is now. There were kickers in those days who were considered to be very good who couldn't hit from 50, and Stoyo made a 58 yarder in the playoffs against KC in 1990. I have positive memories.
