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”.

NFL means , "Not FOR LONG " and some legends  need to except this. I know the love of the game keeps them coming back year after year, but it comes a time that mother nature says, It's time to go. You had a glorious Career. But it's time to let younger talent  try and make their mark.

If he is going to hang 'em up, I'd rather see it happen after a win than a loss.  Whatever transpires going forward, CB must be ready to add a kicker to the roster.

Exactly.

Don't go out like this Vinny. Be a class act. Don't hurt this organization due to your ego!

    • They've earned that much.  The NFL doesn't want to do that, but you can't really ignore the evidence.  All 6 SB trophies they have are asterisked in some way because of spygate 1 or 2.  If anything, it makes the argument against them even stronger.  Even if t hey say, "it's not a huge advantage," the fact of the matter is, whatever advantage it provided, was enough to win 6 super bowls.  And yet, without it, couldn't win any.   Their fault and no matter what the NFL does, thanks for giving the rest of the NFL an excuse to deny Bill and Brady as the best ever.   They still ought to be in a 5-10 year hellhole.  I prefer 20 since that's how long we've had to listen to Pats claim to be the greatest.    Vacate SBs.  Ban from the HOF.  Forfeit 20 years of 1st Rounders.  Force Kraft to sell.     Maybe that's overkill, but at this point, I don't care.  I'm scared from the Manning v. Brady arguments, and now I'm out for blood!  lol 
    • I was being sarcastic because you assume someone cares. 
    • To me JB starts the Saints game and maybe we get a win.  If we do he keeps starting until we are eliminated.  If we lose I would still start JB the next game but everyone will know in advance we are going to play Kelly during the last two games.  I don't think the team would have a problem with that including JB.  He is on the active roster and this is an opportunity to see a teammate in action. 
    • There is no guarantee next year would have the same outcome as this year. There was a lot of things that went wrong in this season and Jacoby isn’t the only reason. Chances are even if we draft the future Jacoby will be the starter next year. A lot of strange things have happened this year that has  lead up to our record. Just look at the turning point. We were 5-2 going into the Steelers game. What happened Jacoby got injured and our WR stated dropping like flies. You can’t underestimate the importance of Ty. Pascal has done great but he isn’t what you would call a playmaker. The things TY can do to fake out defenders ect makes him a great player.  We are missing actual playmakers in the 4th quarter of games. No matter what they do at QB I am excited if Jacoby starts next season and to see what he can do with heathy and upgraded weapons. Plus not having all the drama with Luck two weeks before the season.  Yes he has had some issues but to me I give him a incomplete with everything that has happened.
