Default Automatica Exita!

Looks like 1st year rookie has done enough to beat out some strong competition from Martin Gramatica.

Im reasonably sure that some teams will have a look at this guy now that he has been released.

As I keep saying the drop off between a rookie and Vinatieri in his prime is quite large - however I dont think that will be the Vinatieri we would have seen this year.

Being in a dome will boost his numbers for sure, helping both his accuracy and his length but I have my doubts as to whether he could have kicked a FG of the type that tied the game against the Raiders when the dynasty started.

Quite frankly saying that the Patriots will lose 3 extra regular games because of Adam's absence is nonsense - when the Patriots won their last two SB's they had a very healthy points differential - it was only in the post season that we came to rely on his golden leg.

Another bonus for Steeler fans - when/if we play you guys you may get a little closer to beating us without a WR who laterals the ball to the opposition.

Maybe not, but he sure as heck could have kicked the tying field goal in the AFC playoff game last year against the Colts. There isn't a better pressure kicker in the league.

when the pats won their last 2 sb's they had crennell, weiss, vinatieri, givens, law, mcginest, etc. how was that points differential last year?

poor randle el. his career (and sb ring won in the game where he threw the nicest pass and became the only wr to toss a td in a sb) will be forever tarnished by that lateral against the pats. proof again that if you cant beat the pats, you cant be champs

Remember this 35% of all NFL games are won by 3 points or less.

Well im not too sure where you get those particular stats from CCSH, but maybe they apply to more run-of-the-mill teams?

My calculations lead me to believe that Patriots regular season games over the last 3 years have been decided by an average of 11.71 points.

Furthermore, 7 out of the 48 regular season games over that span were decided by 3 points or less - which I calculate to be much less than 35% - the figure is actually 14.58%.

Feel free to do your own research - maybe the other teams in the league keep their games much closer than the Patriots.
