Adam Vinatieri?

Recommended Posts

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!

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.  

Is classy costing your teams games? No retiring when you know it's time is classy. He's not "old reliable" like you seem to think. And the fact that you have the Colts winning the Super Bowl proves you're not thinking clearly.

Him missing kicks that are falling short wouldn't surprise me, but him missing left or right seems like something else besides age.

Three missed PATs, in two games, doesn't look good.  Tennessee could have won with a FG.  The loss to LAC was avoidable as well, but not all on Vin's misses.  He missed the preseason and that may have something to do with it?

At this point, the way AV is kicking, it really doesn’t matter who they bring in.

I’m inclined to agree with this.

It's getting out he informed the team and coaches. We know what to do to give him the proper sendoff.  I hate it if this is what happens. Lots of great years , memories , but what a run.

Age will affect how consistently you strike the ball. It also affects how well you recover from injuries. He was on a once a week kicking schedule, I assume due to an injury. There’s no way to stay sharp kicking once a week. Apparently, twice a week isn’t enough either.

Hey if you have followed Adams carrier through the years , this stuff, does not happen to him! Look at his statistics. This is not what Adam does , Ever! This just means to me that Adam is slipping badly. Maybe if it was another kicker in his prime, it would not be a worry for concern.

But to Adam, it's not like him, And that is a "Concern".

It’ll be a sad day but the Greatest Kicker of All time deserves a huge thank you and much appreciated. Whenever he does hang it up, he will be missed

Wouldn’t shock me, he knows he’s hurting the team and has nothing left to prove.  Retire and let the Colts honor him next week at home.  At least he got to go out with a win.

If he does retire, at least he didn't kill our season wondering if he's still got it.

If he is indeed calling it a career, he should get a hero's welcome at the next home game.  Retiring when you're the GOAT, you gave it a go after such a long career, is the very definition of retiring.  He deserves the accolades far more than a 29-year old who quit because of what -could- happen.

It’s hard watching a hall of fame legend  fall so quickly.  He’s been a great kicker for so long, but it seems the time has come to call it a career.  He is still the GOAT.

Sure thing. 

 

You know what else I’m a fan of? Reading comprehension and common sense. 

 

In this case I must say I find the lack of which disturbing.

Again I don’t know how to post tweets in my iPad but I saw Holder tweeted out that he talked to Adam said they will hear from him tomorrow and when Holder said but we don’t see you tomorrow Adam said yes you will.

Hey give him a break ,As long as  he was productive. Naturally he would continue to kick year after year . so this was his wake up call to retire, It happens . If only this would happen to Tom Brady, then the world as we  know it would be back in it's proper alignment. LoL.

Why? Because we think a player isn’t playing anywhere near pro-level currently shouldn’t be playing?

There is no “chance.”  The guy we have can’t hit.  We’d be doing just as well with Big Q doing placekicking.

 

Maybe Rigoberto can kick?  I don’t know.  But I know that Vinny can’t.  He needs to be finished.  He’s already cost us one game and he almost cost us another one today.
