Last hurrah vs the Panthers and Jaguars for AV, FG #600 then, I am calling it now. :)

Mack and Campbell are playing. Reich said Mack will not be on a pitch count but expects all four backs to be active. Time for Campbell to show what he is made of. I hope  we make him a focus of the offense these last four games.

I’ll settle for him staying healthy these last four games.

Sure seems like that’s a possibility.
 

Will be interesting to see what happens if Chase kicks really well, and then Vinny is ready to go for the last game or two. Will be even more interesting if Colts are still in playoff hunt.

I just have a gut feeling that if Vinny can kick, both Frank and Irsay would want him to get that 600th FG.

Putting a personal milestone over what’s best for the team is a bad path to go down.

I meant that if AV is healthy enough to kick, even if Chase is kicking well, the job will be given back to AV after a couple of games, just like Robbie Gould's job was given back to him though Chase kicked well enough for the 49ers, thus allowing the 600th FG to happen along the way.

How many attempts will it take for home to make that 600th kick?

He has so many records.  Does it really matter if he gets to 600?   Good grief.

Serena has 23 Grand Slams and owns several records but she wants her 24th and more. That is what keeps champions like them going. Brady didn't stop when he got to the most number of SBs at 5, he wanted a 6th, that is what those guys play for. Beyond a point, records do not mean much but moving the goal posts keeps them going. I could go on and on but you get the point.

Except Serena is in an individual sport and if she bombs out it only hurts herself. Brady going for a 6th is a team goal/accomplishment, not really an individual stat. 
 

Trying to get AV to 600 could be to the detriment of the team.

The detriment to the team happened when Luck retired.   This team had zero chance of playoff success.    Might as well let him get hits 600 and move on.

Have him kick #600 (tho it may take 4 games, haha), then have him “pull A muscle” and put the “kid” in.

 

  I knew it was bad when i heard people saying “pull a Vinny” in normal conversation. It reached pop culture status.

If it doesn't hurt the team, let him get his 600 and then pass the baton to Chase....

Just pass the baton and be done with it.  They have coddled him long enough.  They keep letting him embarrass himself.  Talk about feeding his big ego.  What a way to go out.

WOW this fanbase has turned cutthroat.

That changes with the wins and losses. 

As always, things are never as good as they seem just as they are not as bad as advertised.

Not sure where Vinny touched you at, but HE doesn’t decide when and if he plays. The coaches and organization do. So if Vinny does kick one more time, it’s because THEY wanted him to get that 600. 
 

It was like back in 09 when we COULD have had a perfect season and Irsay pulled the plug on it to avoid injuries. Clark and Wayne played long enough with Peyton to get them both 100 catches on the season. After that they were all pulled. Had nothing to do with them saying “my ego is so big that I HAVE to get this 100th catch.” 
 

You sir really need to pump the hate brakes.

Well said!! I thought about Clark getting his 100th catch then too. If he plays and if he kicks, then they obviously believe, at that point, that he is going to help the team more than hurt.

    • Their fans are about to find out how life will be without Tom Brady  . Cam could them 10 wins but I give them very little chance to win the SB or make it. I put the % at 10% even making the SB.
    • Wait, how are we worse than the Patriots!? They should be rank 31st... 32nd if Cam gets injured.
    • Hope we have a few of those this year vs TN!
    • This is the message board equivalent of a pick 6    
    • They really feel invincible at the highest level of sports, look at any professional sports team in the country, look at their franchise value compared to 10 years ago, even 5 years ago,the values not only go up they go way up, the sorriest franchise of the last 50 years the Clippers sold for over a billion a few years ago, the Clippers, a team you couldn't pay most people to sit and watch for two hours, are worth over a billion!!! Sports franchises can basically do whatever they want, they will never have any competition, so here are the options 1. quit cold turkey, and when people bring up sports, just say I used to watch it before.. or just avoid. drawback-if you had a past addiction, you will have to avoid going out to eat on Sunday, because almost every place has on the game. 2. become a casual fan who only watches if they make the Super Bowl (the I only watch for the halftime and commercials fan)drawback-this one works easier if you are female  3. put all the weekend energy into something else, lakes, crafts & woodwork, R&R, travel,outdoors, family, because there literally is nothing on the TV to watch on the weekends besides live sports. drawback-living in the northern part of the U.S.  4. go to radio/internet only, something I have done in the past, most of the changes will evaporate and it is just about the game& field position, drawbacks-instant replay 5. continue to be a fan, but let them know your opinion, and become an outspoken critic, let them know your displeasure constantly week after week, and when they say "go find another team", or "we don't want you as a fan", don't listen to them, and just articulate your displeasure. If enough people do this, they will listen they will have to, don't believe me, take a look at how many sports franchises change their logo and uniforms and a decade later they add a third jersey, and eventually the classic jersey is back. Brewers, Padres, Astros, Blue Jays, NY Giants, Chargers, Rams,Islanders, Sabres, Capitals, Coyotes, Pistons, 76ers, Warriors, etc drawback-people will avoid you like covid-19
