AV wants to return, may not be healthy for start of season


Recommended Posts

Sign him to a weird one game deal, and if we’re up by a large amount let him kick that 600 and then be done with it if we want to play the nice card. 
 

I wish he had decided to retire along with Luck to be honest, I hate that this is how he is viewed now. Maybe he needs to sit down with Favre for a heart to heart on just letting it go...

What's the reason behind bringing back AV? Has he shown you anything as of late that warrants the belief of solid play?

 

If so, how could you give AV an excuse that he should be on the team, but yet want to get rid of Brissett? If its play then its play. If not then its something personal.

I'm thinking he's probably not going to be ready for training camp which "let's us off the hook." 

 

Lets say he's healthy around the middle of October. There is always a PK that poops the bed or is injured. So A.V. is now available to audition for those spots. I think that's his most likely path if he wants to return.

We'll see - Sanchez has done pretty good on kickoffs so far, so why would you change that?

Having to practice kickoffs along with punts puts more wear and tear on the leg, plus it’s a different motion. If the place kicker can do the job, let him, and let the punter focus on punting. From training video I’ve seen of Blanky, he should have no issue with kickoffs.

I agree with the first bolded, but I will respectfully disagree with the second bolded. IMO, it's Blankenship's job to lose. I believe he will be doing FG's XP's, and also kickoffs for the Colts when game 1 rolls around. I do think Chase is solid and will land a job somewhere.

Could keep both and cut the punter lol

Let’s face it, good kickers are hard to find.  But even IF he was ready to go game 1 and he kicked 100% this year... this HAS to be his last, right?  It looks to me like he would retire if he were not close to records.  Seeing him do that with us would be cool, but worth the risk?  Also, this team is kinda starting “fresh” in some ways anyway.  The last thing this team needs is another injury related kicking drama.  It would suck the life out of the whole organization i feel.

  On the other hand, we picked up an interesting option last year that looked pretty good , imo.  We also have an interesting rookie prospect with potential.  I dont see much, if any drop-off from them to Vinny (the vinny of now).

  Thosec2 can battle it out.  Added bonus is saving some cap money.  NOTHING would ruin my season more  than to roll with Vinny and he starts missing kicks out the gate.  I even think I could bear it more with the other 2   That stretch last year was unbearable.

Respect to Adam V.  However it’s time to retire.  He will go down in history as the Greatest Kicker Of All-time regardless.  Hopefully the Colts make the right decision here if Adam is unable to.  At the very least let him compete for his job and go out on his shield.  Because no way should he win the job over Blankenship or McLaughlin.

Watched some of the Packers vs Patriots Super Bowl game last night. AV was the kicker for the Pats. Brett Favre was the QB for Packers and former Bears QB Jim McMahon, who played in the 1985 SB was his backup. AV been around a long... long time!
