like i said the deal aint done yet. pats still have a chance to step up to the plate and do the right thing.

but to put it into perspective, if i saw 15 $100 bills blowing in the wind and only caught 12 of them, i would atleast attempt to fetch the remaining 3.

kind of debunks the idea that all these patriots will accept veteran minimum to keep the dynasty alive.

he'll be back, dont worry.

Adam Vinatieri a Colt = hahahahahaha. The league's second highest revenue generating team is too cheap to sign the game's best clutch kicker. Pathetic. Good luck replacing AV.

Wasn't about the kicker at all. Peyton didn't like him, he got the boot. A move for team chemistry, nothing more.

AV has to be loving it, though.

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.

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.

I agree. They may get their next kicker the same way they got Vinatieri, draft him.
