Asked about losing the job to Carpenter five years ago, Feely said "There was a lot more to it than my percentages and my performances on the field."
Then he reeled off a list of what he said were his statistics since he joined the Cardinals.
"I think I'm third in the NFL in makes over 47 yards the last four years, fifth in percentage, fifth in percentage under 47 yards," Feely said. "So I'm happy with how I performed over the last few years of my career and happy with my training camp so far."
Since 2007, Feely has made 8 of 9 field goals of 50 yards or longer. Carpenter is 10 of 20 from 50 or farther.
In Saturday's 12-7 victory over Dallas, Feely made field goals of 25, 53, 40 and 22 yards but missed one from 30.
"The miss was dumb," he said. "It wasn't a technical thing. I should have taken a delay of game and not rushed it."
