It's like someone else said...
Last year, Donnie Jones had a GOOD year for Donnie Jones. Last year, Shane Lechler had a bad year for Shane Lechler.
Their stats last year were almost identical. BUT. The odds are that this next season, Donnie Jones doesn't kick that well and there's a good chance that Shane Lechler kicks better.
