His FG % in his time in Washington...

20-29 yds - 93.5%
30-39 yds - 76.5%
40-49 yds - 54.5%
50+ yds - 36%

If it wasnt for the second round pick that was used to draft him, they would have kicked him to the curb a lot sooner. Kai is nothing like Lohmiller, Kai actually makes his FG's.
Maybe Lohmiller wasn't that good after all. With all of the mediocrity at the kicker position for the past 15 years, it's easy to sight Lohmiller as the Redskins last franchise kicker....before Forbath.

Quoted for super duper extra strength.


If Chip Lohmiller were around today, Skins fans would be running this guy out of town as fast as they could. It's amazing how people can take one good year, or one good game and create this fantasy or unrealistic image of a person.

Example: D. Hall's 4 game interception against the Bears. Fans gushed about he was our best player on D, and how awesome he was. Realistically, he ended the end as the 3rd worst CB in the NFL.

It's really because he was the last kicker that stuck around for any real length of time. BTW I think kickers have gotten more accurate over the years so comparing FG %s from then to now is sorta apples and oranges.

Not only that but a lot of kickers are attempting field goals beyond 50 yards more. Jan Stenerud was probably the greatest of all time. He could have easily booted FGs beyong fifty yards in this era. Forbath may actually make it to the HOF if he keeps on pace at the level he's kicking at.

Punter Steve Cox once kicked a 57 yarder back in 1987. That FG was a team record before Graham Gano booted a 59 yarder last season to break the record.
