Re: Adam Vinatieri a Colt
This is certainly interesting news - as far as I can tell it is a done deal and AV is a Colt.
Im afraid I wont be wishing him luck on this career move - the same as if Givens had gone to Miami instead of the Browns - the Colts are still contenders and genuine rivals, although I dont expect them to be as good this year as last year without the Edge.
AV is the best kicker the game has seen - bearing in mind he has played alot of his career in a cold weather outdoor environment his stats top anyone else - especially anyone who has made a career out of kicking in windless warm artificial domes.
I dont think we will be looking at Vanderjagt - too much money for a guy who can't kick the big one.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
