Joey Slye NFC Special Teams Player of the Week

Figured I would give him props by starting a new thread. Great game and well deserved.


LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. Ė The National Football League announced today that Washington kicker Joey Slye has been named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for Week 10.

Slye finished four-for-four in Washington's 32-21 win at Philadelphia, hitting field goals of 58, 55, 44 and 32 yards. It was the second time in his career he made two or more field goals from 50-plus yards in a single game. The 58-yarder is the longest made field goal by a Washington kicker since Graham Gano hit a 59-yarder against San Francisco on Nov. 6, 2011 and was also a career-long for Slye. It is the longest made field goal against the Eagles all-time by a Washington kicker, per Stats LLC.

Slye is the 24th player in Washington history to receive the honor and the first since returner DeAndre Carter in Week 4 of last season.

The last Washington kicker to earn the honor was Dustin Hopkins in Week 13 of the 2020 season.

So far this season, Slye has made 13 of his 15 attempts and is a perfect three-for-three from 50-plus yards.

Slye was on-fire Monday. Best performance we've seen from a Washington kicker in a long time. He was money.

I had Slye being cut as one of my 3 hot take season predictions.

I didnt think he could hit over 50 and is inconsistent.

I might have cheered my loudest when he hit that 58 banger. Weve opted to punt vs taking any long FGs so far ... I wonder if the wind was in our favor and influenced RR decision.

Joey fucking Slye!

I wasn't a big fan of his until I read this:

He's definitely improved -- and he definitely deserved this honor.

The only disappointing thing with this award it highlights how underutilised our other special teams superstar was on Monday, Tress Way.

That our punter was underutilized was a good thing. We scored in 5 consecutive drives. I donít remember the last time we did that.

Things must be really turning around for this team to have a Kicker named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

Actually, when I reread it, I realized I was being obtuse. Didnít recognize the sarcasm while basking in the win. Both unusual events.
