That is FIVE of the eight division leaders and outside of Seattle represents the only realistic teams getting to the Super Bowl.

Also, Graham has missed 6 FG's this season, of which 4 misses were 50+. He is perfect inside 40 yards and 7-9 between 40 and 50 yards and 2-6 from 50+.

The coaches know that he doesn't have a big leg, but they keep trotting him out there for 50+ tries. Only 6 kickers in the league have attempted more from 50+. Is that really on Graham or the coaches?
Graham's last FG just made it inside the goal post by a hair......a short 33 ydr. For that matter Bullock (obviously a Marciano pick), despite his relative college accuracy, in his senior year made 1 of 1 kicks at 50 yds or greater. The one he did make was his career long 52. The year before, he had one that he barely made at 50 yds. In preseason, he made a 21 ydr and a 52 ydr and missed a 51 ydr, similar questions remaining as with Graham. I'm somewhat guarded for prospects of significant improved kick off/FG performance next year as we will have an inexperienced and NFL-pressure unproven player....... and still with questionable leg strength and a solid feeling of legitimate security whenever he comes up to bat.
