Default Dallas cuts Vanderjagt

http://www.nfl.com/nflnetwork/story/9832312
Nov. 27, 2006) -- The Cowboys employ a former Colts kicker -- but it isn't Mike Vanderjagt anymore.

Ending a saga that has continued throughout this season, the Cowboys waived former Colts kicker Vanderjagt and signed former Colts kicker Martin Gramatica, who spent three games with Indianapolis earlier this season.

The move turned out to be a costly experiment for the Cowboys. They gave Vanderjagt a $2.5 million signing bonus this offseason, but he struggled on field goals, kickoffs and was a constant source of consternation for Cowboys coach Bill Parcells. The Cowboys began making calls on other kickers at least two weeks ago, inquiring into the availability of such players as former Dallas kicker Billy Cundiff. But the team opted to go with Gramatica, who has connected on 138 of 180 field goals during his NFL career.

And just as the Cowboys made a headline-grabbing move at quarterback, they now have done the same at kicker.

I was so happy the day he missed that field goal. I think his career has gone downhill since

The guy now has a mental block and will never be a successful kicker again.

I'm sure the Tuna knows something the general public doesn't know. Because you're right, on paper, it doesn't make much sense. Maybe he and Vanderchoke had some beef...

I wonder if it has to do with a culmination of things this month, such as Vanderjagt criticizing his line protection when he had a field goal blocked at the end of the Washington game a couple weeks ago. Also, he missed a couple of makable field goals in the Indianapolis game a week or so ago.

Ok - everybody here is off base - they picked up Gramatica for his celebration dances following each field goal - the guy has fire - it doesn't matter if they're losing 50-0 - if he makes a 25 yard field goal, he will take a victory lap around the field, jump in the air - high five, lambeau leap, etc - and Parcells loves this kind of thing...
