Default Re: Adam Vinatieri a Colt

Edge... Plaxico... Would they rather have the money or a ring. Vinatieri got both.

Yup. Best kicker EVER! Hinesight proves the obvious. It was extremely near sighted on the part of the Pats to let such a proven commodity leave.

This is up there with letting Branch leave. If he was still there against the Colts there probably would have been no dropped passes to a wide open reciever in the end zone, and who knows...there may have even been a need for a clutch kick in the end. Now I can see why Brady was so upset to see him go.

The one thing that the Patriots dont regret is letting Vinatieri go - they didnt lose a single game because they had a rookie kicker.

In fact if you look at the below table, you'll see that only one of the two kickers was perfect in the postseason - and it wasn't AV.



The Branch episode has been done to death, and there were no dropped passes in the endzone that actually cost the Patriots points - just the single wideopen play when Caldwell was on the sidelines.

Dont let facts get in the way of a good argument though

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.
