I predict, next Sunday, whatever the weather, whoever is kicking.....the roof  WILL BE CLOSED!

If it was anything but the extra point, we could say that his leg is an issue but an extra point is a clear sign that there is a technique problem. Send in the analytics team to analyze his kicking motion, like they do with a golfer's swing. The guy is mentally tough with nerves of steel. I hope we give him a chance to work it out.

I get that but should he retire because he has 2 bad games? What if he makes a game winning 50 yard FG next week? Then everyone will love him again.

 

I liked Vanderjagt until the Pittsburgh game too!

I am sorry but that would be a mistake on the Colts part.

Smh, NE wouldn’t even be considering this man. They don’t let emotions get involved

I want Adam to be the answer but his struggles date back to the end of last season and if Adam feels its time to go let him go out on his terms.

You and others may be right, it may be time for him to call it quits. I just do not like to see 2 bad games be the deciding factor. I can see 4 or 5 bad games as that would be obvious. We are not talking just any kicker, it is Adam.

Ok then who do we get if Adam steps down?

I assume there has to be a kicker out there who can at least consistently hit extra points.

Probably someone who isn’t as good as Adam was but that’s the thing Adam isn’t as good as he was either.

I hope because I really do not know who would be good out there. So it was an honest question and no laughing matter as I joke a lot. We may need this new guy to make a 50 yard FG for a crucial win?

Do you have any faith at all in Vinatieri's ability to hit a 50 yard field goal right now for a win? He is struggling to hit crucial extra points right now. He's hit three of his last seven extra points.

After the 1st 2 games I do not but I don't have faith in anyone else either out there. That is the problem. At least with Adam he has proven he is great.

That’s true they aren’t going to feel as confident as they have at kicker but right now forget the 50 yarder to win a game I don’t feel confident for Adam to hit an extra point and just get seven.  The Colts were a play or two away from it perhaps cost the Colts the game today.  Add in last week where Adam left seven points on the field and Adam is killing them.  That’s not fair to the rest of the team and Adam knows that.

It is my understanding  he will make statement tomorrow.

 

That's what he told reporters.  They mentioned to Adam it's not his day to speak to the press, and he replied "You'll hear from me tomorrow."

Might be a false assumption.  Good ones are overlooked and undervalued.  Bad ones cause strife and can be hard to replace.

One of the best regular season kickers ever. Remember him kicking a bunch in the snow at Denver for a win. Unfortunately , his mouth and that shank cost him his job.  He also shanked one against Miami in the playoffs , early 2000s.

So what IS the number? Three bad games?  A whole season of bad kicks?    The thing is Adam is NOW just another kicker.  Remember he didn't kick at all in the preseason games.  We have post season bad kicks and nine months later, two games of bad kicks.

 

I want him to be good, but something is seriously off.

He isn't even making extra points.  They let Badgley go. It backfired.  Chance you take when you give a guy the benefit of the doubt.

I predict either Cole Hedlund or Greg Joseph (who kicked a little for Clev. Last year) is kicking for us next week...

According to NFL.com

 

“On the year, Vinatieri is 1-for-3 on field goals and 1-for-5 on extra points.”

 

let that sit in. 2 for 8 overall, 25%. Unfathomable in my opinion, just can’t believe it.

Obviously not ideal.

I've seen the junior at Valparaiso high school kick and he can make them.

I said earlier in this thread that I thought it was too early to cut him/have him retire. But after a second bad game, it should really be considered. I'm not against giving him one more game to see what he's really got, but I'm not against him and the Colts going separate ways.  I have nothing but respect for him; he's an all-time great kicker and an absolute legend.  No reason for him to hang his head or feel embarrassed or ashamed.  Arguably the greatest kicker of all time.

I’ve heard he is meeting with the media tmrw. I could see him retiring if he feels he doesn’t have it anymore. Much respect for him but if he is gonna cost this team it is time to move on.

IMO did not live up to his own standards finishing up last season & it has carried over to this season he knows it & so does anyone watching it was hard to watch these first 2 games I expect him too retire this week . He has been a great asset in the kicking game that is nolonger the case the Colts were lucky to get out of Nashville with a win . Happy Trails Vinatieri  we appreciate all you have done as a COLT .:hat:

I had nightmares of Lamar Smith for a week and his shank.

Don't be surprised if AV is kicking in the LUKE next week.   I can't believe a guy that competitive wants to go out like that

Reading that Tweet, I wouldn't  be surprised if the Colts convince him to stay on and finish the season. Radio guys said he was kicking 60 yard FGs before the game. He might straighten out if there is no injury....not sure what to hope for, this team doesn't look like a playoff team right no anyway!

I agree. First two games of the season also. Yes the KC game was rough, but that was then. We don't know what is all going on. We don't know what Adam Viniateri brings to this locker room every single day. We sure as hell don't know who his replacement would be or if they are even capable of doing better than the poor performances he has had. 

 

I can't imagine Ballard not encouraging him to keep grinding it out and trying to get into a rhythm to finish out the year and call it a career at years end... but then again, if Adam doesn't trust himself, then it could be a lonngg year with a lot of L's squarely on him not performing. And no one would want that for him.
