Can you imagine the reaction if this was a home game?

Yeah! He would be booed off the field. That seems to be the treatment of our greats....

I doubt he gets cut.     He may retire,   but I doubt that as well.   We are home next week.

Some of Vinnys kicks look like they are going right down the middle and the wind just carries it like crazy. 

 

I defended him like crazy last week, but we can't afford to lose easy points every week. I would give Vinny one more week at Lucas Oil to get it together. 

 

They should definitely be starting the evaluation process during the week though and start working out other kickers.

Damn... that will be a sad day. Not the way I wanted to see him go, if he does go, at least he did it with a win.

Thank you!!! Get the emotions out of it. The Patriots don’t do emotions and it has served them well

what does it mean

 

It's a guessing game, but I interpret it as possible retirement press conference.

 

At least that's how AV is feeling at the moment.

Is the FG kicker we had in camp still available.

Too bad we didn't keep the one from last year. He was a really good one.

The Colts don’t talk to media on Monday, or at least AV doesn’t. Holder pointed that out and Adam said that he will talk to them tomorrow. The only thing that Adam would do that for is probably to announce his retirement.

He is probably  going to retire.  If so , thanks for the memories and years. He will get the proper sendoff soon I'm sure.

I love what Adam has meant for the Colts ,over the years , but it's time, much to my dismay , I have to think that Adam should step aside and give us a chance to find another , place kicker that hopefully can at least be close to the legacy, that Adam will leave. He is a legend!   and I wish him the best , but he needs to retire. The words , makes me feel bad but life moves on. I wish Adam the best but the future  is in question.

I mean if he's done you can't really be surprised at 46 years old (I think).

 

We'll see how this plays out.

So you want a kicker that had two bad games in a row to quit?  Yeah, that would be really classy. <roll eyes>

 

I have a better idea ... he fights through two bad games and proceeds to be old reliable for the next 14 games plus 4 playoff games, then retiring as a SuperBowl champion.

The team gets the day after a win off. When Adam says they’ll see him tomorrow he’s saying he’ll be in to put in work. 

 

He’s not retiring after two games when there’s not really any better options out there, and we’re not cutting him.

I don't know...the whole "you'll hear from me tomorrow" implies a presser almost. I doubt he'd talk to the media to do anything but retire.

 So you're fine with his performances then?

 

You don't believe any kickers out there could do better than missing easy FGs and multiple extra points?

I can't see him going out like this, too much of a bitter pill to swallow. I wouldn't be surprised if he told us tomorrow that he is going to work extremely hard to get his kick back

I’m not willing to take a chance and find out the answer to that question is a “no”.

    • Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't were a a playoff team (with a playoff win) last season?   Should we wait to win a Superbowl before we think we've built a good enough foundation?   Then we'll finally be ready to acquire top-level talent?
    • Luck retiring was a huge blow to our short term plans (ie: next few years).   But Ballard has absolutely built a solid bottom third of the roster. That's huge and is the proper way to do things. We were terrible depth wise when he got here. We can now lose guys and have decent players step in who can function.   Don't underestimate the injuries we've had. TY and Funchess being healthy all season would definitely make the O look different. Same with Turay at DE.   Now that he's lost an elite franchise QB, he's going to have to keep building this thing up a bit more instead of filling a few spots with some stars.   I'm just guessing, but I think next year would have been a season where he would've spent on several stars regardless if Luck had stayed.   With all that said I think he'll be a little more open to spend next year as that was part of his original 4/5 year building plan.   People act like he's been here 10 years. You need 3/4 drafts to build up a team and account for the inevitable bust or two draft picks.   If he doesn't spend anything again next season I think it'll be safe to assume he just won't get into FA in general as a GM or Jim just isn't allowing him to spend because he doesn't want to shell out millions in signing bonuses.    Sorry for the rant.  
    • Should be able to find a guy who can make 40 yard kicks reliably. So we have to make it further for FG range? Who cares. If we had that we would have won 2 other games and possibly last week too. We dont need the best guy. Just better than what we have.    Colts will draft a Kicker this off season.    Kevin Bowen said in his pod cast, that vinny has never had an elite leg, and was never the most accurate (after going through his history of coyese). He is literally the clutch kicker. And that's gone now. 
    • Sorry edited my post and forget to put 1sr round in there. The 3rd round part was for Clowney
