I can’t say enough about what Vinny means to this organization. However, why is he still playing? It was obvious last year that he should have seriously considered hanging his cleats up. What he did (

Adam has given us 13 great years with the Colts. Literally won us a game in the playoff en route to our only Indy Super Bowl by himself. He has broken every significant record with us. He stuck with u

This loss is on him plain and simple.

Still waiting for his advocates to come to his defense...... Pretty sure I hear crickets. 

I just don't happen to think the loss is on him.    Yes, he missed an extra point.  Yes, it's disappointing,  yes....  he's been inconsistent....     

 

But...………..  the losses are not all on him.  If so....   it would just be a game between two kickers.

It's a team sport.   not a contest between kickers.

 

Our team, our coaches, our play calling are all to blame today.

 

You wanted to hear from Adam's advocates.....

 

That's my stance, and  the last thing I'm going to say on it.  

 

Gramz out...  til next game.

You’ve got to be kidding me right? I’m glad it’s the last thing you’re going to say because it’s a weak stance and you know it. Good grief...... smh

Sorted from worst to first, here is every single kicker in NFL history with more than 20 XP attempts in a season.

 

No one has less than 75% kicking (yes I know they moved it back, but its still less than a 40 yarder).

 

Vinny is now 13/20 on the year, or in other words, the worst XP Kicking season of all time!

 

 

We will crush that record and set a new modern day standard....go Vinny!

Hard to preach accountability to a young locker room while letting a dude ride on his past success.  He has built a hall of fame career in the past, he will be inducted in the future, but at present he's assassinating a team with zero margin for error.  I know that sounds harsh but this team is on the cusp of a breakdown,  it's in a tailspin and management is in danger of losing this locker room........they need a shakeup.  Just my opinion.

Im asking because i don't know, not because I'm sticking up for Vinny......What options are out there right now, does anyone know.  I agree he needs to go but if there is nobody out there who can do a better job then what is next?

At this point who cares? Give somebody, give anybody, a shot.

I'm just asking, how many people are walking around and available that could do better.  I am not a super fan who knows all the people out there who are available, on practice squads, etc. Just genuinely like to know if there is anyone you guys have in mind.  I don't know if Rigo was kicking field goals in college or not.

    • That sounds good.    I would be fine with 6-8 pm and 9-11 pm ET with a 5 minute window for picks, so 16 picks should be done in 120 minutes. It would be like the real draft starting Day 3, where they get only 5 minutes between picks.     Would you have time around the beginning of April to help moderate this along with me? If it is a small window of time, it is a smaller time commitment on my front and yours, so I like this idea.   I can ask @NFLfan @csmopar and @danlhart87 again if they would be willing to make themselves available for those small windows of time thus giving us plenty of options. Let us bring this thread back up then.
    • First of all, I'd say bad fit for us. He's a 3-4 DE. In our system he'd be a tweener, or maybe even a 3T.  Great against the run, average vs the pass. Very solid 3 down guy overall in a 3-4.   IMO, even if he was a fit, we don't need run D help, and he'd be too expensive. Overall just not the benefit and value we need.    
    • Here's what we did on another board a few years ago. Worked out pretty good. 1 Round per evening 2 windows each night... picks 1-16, and then 17-32 (I think it was 7p-8p and 9-10, but could have been 8-9 and 10-11). That way, guys new pretty much when they needed to be there, and only needed to pay attention for roughly an hour per day. Really not even that long. Also gave the mods some time between windows to tidy up. 3 minute clock hence the "flash" term. If you miss a pick, you drop 5 spots (basically giving them an extra 15 minutes). If they missed it a second time, they get bumped to the end of the round and have up to an hour before the next days round starts. If they miss that, they get best player based on their primary needs.  We had 3 threads going at once, and 3 moderators. One thread for the pick announcements and general comments, one with a constantly updated order and big board, and one to manage trades. The big board management was great in terms of keeping it going and checking off who is gone. We also published team needs, but I can't remember if we tracked it except for using it when folks missed their window. Only trades allowed are pick for pick(s) so very little approval needed. No picks for existing players (We did the mock post FA fury, I think we started about 2 weeks prior to the draft).
    • I didn't say he could be as good as Leonard. I said pretty clearly that if Leonard was 95/100 That I think Oke's ceiling is about 86-90.    By in which I also added that any team would be alright that that level of play. I think you are misunderstanding. Because we both seem to agree that Oke will more than likely be a pretty darn good player.
