I'm pretty sure that Vanderjagt is the most accurate kicker in the history of the NFL.

If you know something different, please share with the rest of us...

Vinatieri going from outdoors to a dome has lot more upside than Vanderjagt going outside in the Northeast.

I would be very hesitant to sign the idiot kicker if my team played outdoors and it potentially got below freezing in my home town.

The "rest of us"? I haven't heard anyone else make the same comment you did. I suspect the "rest of us" know better.

Another dumb post on this issue from a Steelers fan.

I subscribe to both "The Sporting News" and "ESPN The Magazine" and neiher of them had AV higher that MV...I've also seen nothing from any reputable source online that differed.

But, hey, regional bias is MY fault I guess, right?

The funny thing is I wasn't trying to be controversial at all, just state that the two were practically interchangable.

Vanderjagt is 217 out of 248 for a 87.5% and 344 out of 346 xp's for a 99.4%
Vinatieri is 263 out of 321 for a 81.9% and 367 out of 374 xp's for a 98.1%
Now if your talking who's the best clutch kicker between the two thats a different story.

You don't need to subscribe to a magazine, or be from NE, to see what Vinatieri is.

Let me ask you Suit. If there are 15 seconds left on the clock, it's 18 degrees, the wind is blowing, you're at home, you're on your opponents 32 yard line, the score is 19 to 17 against you, you have to pick either AV or MV to make the kick for you, who do you pick?

Well, I mean of course. Why would you look at it any other way? The guy who can make the money kicks is the kicker you want. Who gives a **** about the stats?
