I just got through watching Neil Rackers the kicker from the Arizona Cardnals kick 4 kicks hitting the left goal post 2 times and also the right side just like he said he would.. that was a pretty Awesome feat in my opinion..
My question is.. if it really matters... If you were in the Super Bowl and with :02 left and you needed a 43 (troy) yard FG.. who would you want and why?
Not Vanderjact.. I guarentee you that for me... I would chose Adam Vineteri.. he is the Best clutch kicker I have ever seen... Gary Anderson was also considered..

Adam Vinatieri, no question about it. After that, I would say Neil Rackers or Matt Stover.

I would go with Jeff Reed (if not kicking towards the open end at HF - LOL! He was a clutch kicker when he needed to be last season), Rackers and Vinatieri (agree with your overall assessment, but he missed 2 in the 40-49 range last season, very Un-Vinatieri-like)

I call it as I see it - Shayne Graham is a pretty darned good clutch kicker, too.

Thats a real tough question.

Adam V. is the best kicker to play the game - the amount of clutch kicks he has made in the playoffs will likely not be beaten.

My personal favorite was the 45 yard kick to tie against Oakland in 2001- it was a superhuman effort because the ball was frozen solid.

There is not much doubt in my mind that Adams powers are waning - but no-one else springs to mind as a 'clutch' kicker.

Rackers is the most talented kicker in the league, but if it was from inside 40 i'd go with Adam.

You know I said that I would also consider Gary Anderson the long ago kicker for the Steelers and Vikings and others.. He was not really liked by his team mates anywhere he played and I have changed my mind about considering him because in the only big time chance he had that I remember was with the Vikings I believe against the Falcons that year in the NFC Tittle and he had Not Missed All Year til THEN... Not too good under pressure huh....?

I'd have to stick with J. Reed. He's been true when given the opportunity to perform.

Wow.. Graham.. Very cool to hear someone at least mention him

I would still take Adam Vineteri

Indeed, Graham is a very underrated kicker...that being said, I would also take Adam V.

Neil Rackers I wouldn't touch with a 10 foot pole, personally.

I would, unfortunately, have to go with

1) AdaM V.
2) Graham
3) Jeff R.
4) N. Rackers

This is in a clutch situation only. 50yds and closer in any other situation I am sticking with Jeff....sorry, but I have to keep my loyalties and he did pretty well in a couple of clutch situations last year, including the kick to win the game inthe final seconds at San Diego.
