Jay Feeley Could Find Himself On The Hot Seat Once Again


Arizona Cardinals Kicker Jay Feeley may have to worry about his job once again after missing a 50 yard field goal that would have giving the Cardinals a 3 point half time lead. Both defenses have had problems stopping the other offense, but after the Rams tie the game at 10 a piece, the clock was left with only 26 seconds.

When most teams would run that time out and go in with the tie, coach Arians continued to be aggressive and three big throws later from quarterback Carson Palmer the Cards were in field goal range for Feeley to cap what was not suppose to be an opportunity.

During the training camp Bruce Arians brought in another kicker to challenge the 37 year old kicker for his job, Feeley ended up winning the job after a three day stint from kicker Dan Carpenter. Carpenter was cut after his first and only kick in preseason was blocked because of his low trajectory on the kick.

Now with a chance to take momentum and the lead into half time, Feeley misses a kick that he is more than capable of making and hooked it just outside the right of the goal post. Turns out that was the field goal that eventually cost the cards the game and they end up losing by 3 points 27 to 24

It will be very interesting to see if the quick trigger coach Bruce Arians will make another change at kicker.
