    i dont think you can say a kicker is getting old until he hits 40..maybe 38



    Gary Anderson and Morten Anderson could prolly still play if they wanted to

    And as the Colts found out the kicker can make or break your ENTIRE season.

    Pats know this already. A kicker in football is essential.

    Also not surprising to see the rest of the Patriot faithful come in the thread and follow their basic principles.

    On SC they just said that Dallas had talks with Vanderjagt yesterday.

    It's believed Dallas is after him due to their numerous kickers and problems last season, but I really just believe they want him because they want someone to be a bigger idiot in the media than T.O and take some pressure off him.

    and its no surprise to see u in a NE thread talking shit..

    an if you are a NE fan you should follow what the FO does.. fuck all that BS danny said about the whole "In BB we trust" fading out.. tell them suckas to take their asses to another team.. after winning we need to shake off some these bandwagon fans

    why should i question BB and Pioli?? the guy has brought us 3 SBs so why question his motives or decisions?? Pioli was Excutive of the yr..

    Brady was the one that failed to get points at the end of those games and DEPENDED on that kicker.

    "its just a kicker"

    yeah... and it's just 3 superbowls you wouldn't have won without him.

    im still waiting for u to respond.. more than likely youll ignore this just like u do everytime somebody humiliates you..

    this still cracks me up though
    god damn your stupid

    not only are u fucking retarded, you suck at lying

    so i went ahead and found several scounting reports yetu didnt respond.. go figure

    anyways here they are again

    1st report
    Analysis
    STRENGTHS: Size, Escapability, Toughness
    WEAKNESSES: Mechanics, Decision Making
    NFL COMPARISON: Marc Bulger, Rams
    Cutler and Bulger have similar builds. They both also have good arms, but their gunslinger's mentality leads them to make their share of throws they shouldn't. Neither are outstanding runners, but show good presence and manuverability in the pocket.

    SCOUTING REPORT: Cutler has the tools to play at the next level. His college production and track record are more difficult to evaluate than that of other top QB prospects because he did not have a great supporting cast. His physical skills however, speak for themselves. He has great size and is a strong player. He has a good muscle base and an tall frame. Mechanically, he has to work on a couple things. He holds the ball low on his drop back (chest-level) and his release needs to be rasied as well. Cutler has had more passes batted down than he should and that can be attributed to his release. Holding the ball low on dropbacks as well as dropping it to his hip when rushed exposes it to rushers and also causes wasted motion in his throws. He has good natural arm strength and can throw the ball from many different angles. His passes have good zip and he can fit the ball into tough spots. He has the arm to drive the ball downfield, but his deep balls tend to hang and flutter too much. In general, he must do a better job of setting his feet and really driving the ball on all his passes. His footwork in the pocket though, is very good. He shows good ability to feel the rush and slide around it. He can make plays with his feet and while he isn't blazingly fast, he is difficult to sack. He can throw on the run, but will make some questionable decisions when flushed outside the pocket. He must learn to live to play another down. Accuracy wise he is solid and getting better with time. He throws the ball particularly well on crossing routes as he leads his receivers and allows them to make plays after the catch. Going along with that though is anticipation. Cutler must learn to anticipate and time routes better rather than waiting for his receivers to break and then releasing the ball. Part of his turnover problems are due to him staring down his first read for too long and releasing the ball late. As he progresses, he must learn to manipulate the defense with his eyes and come off to his check downs quicker. As a field general, Cutler has had to be the leader and the main man on some undermatched teams. He is a player with high character and high football I.Q. which bodes well for his future.

    2nd one-
    Negatives: Occasional overconfidence with arm strength can lead to gambles that backfire. ... Has some work to do on overall mechanics and getting rid of the ball quicker. ... Wasn't tremendously accurate during Combine throwing drills.


    3rd one-Weaknesses:
    Mechanics will get pretty dodgy at times.. Footwork is very eratic.. Will take unnecessary risks and make some bad decisions.. His gunslinging mentality can morph into recklessness.. Has too much confidence in his arm at times.. struggles throwing the deep ball.. hasnt had alot of success at the college level from a team perspective.. Body has taken alot of punishment throughout his career..

    i very fucking angry about this.

    the only thing which would kinda make sense is if billicheck and pioli see a kicker in the draft they want, and even then its a dumb move theyre like 20 mil under the cap.

    and even though statistically theres probably better guys but theres still no other kicker id rather have and the pats can afford him, this is bullshit, i can understand givens and mcginest and free agency was crazy in the nfl this year, but still kickers dont even make that much...

    he gets the bad mechanics wrap from some due to his gunslinger acts...

    they don't evaluate why he does what he does. He has no fucking choice.

    yeah it sucks. they shoulda kept him.

    there isnt anyone in the nfl who can kick in new england/bad weather like vinateri.

    but they have major cap room. maybe they can sign some defence and one or two offencive weapons that way they can score more pts and wont need the kicks.

    who knows but im sure they'll adjust appropriately
