I don't know why "people like yourself" can't understand that the NFL is a "what have you done for me lately" league. Also I "fail to understand" why "people like you" have to judge other people's reply as "silly". It's just a disagreement of opinion, no need for the bull***** histrionics.
The only one with BS histrionics is yourself. Clearly you have issues with people having opinions about your opinions.
BTW, Gostkowski has hit 26 of 31 FGs this year, which is just slitghly below his career average. And 3 of the misses were from beyond 40 yards. 1 of them beyond 50 yards. I am judging him on the here and now. I wish you would.

Clearly you have never had a major leg injury of any sort. You don't understand about the muscle loss that takes place and how much rehab is required to get them back to even 90%. And Gostkowski's Quad was torn entirely off the bone. Which means no rehab prior to the surgery and a longer time before being able to start the rehab and slower intervals to ensure that it's not damaged again. And, before you ask, I do know about the sort of muscle atrophy that occurs because, after I tore my ACL, my thigh went from being 23in circumference to about 16.625 in. in about 3 months. And it took me 18 months to get it back to 21 in. And I wasn't fully healed. And I am also taking into considering the advances they've made today vs. when I tore my ACL almost 15 years ago.
So, while Gostkowski might have been cleared with no limitations, that doesn't mean his leg strength is back to 100%. That's what I was getting at. Just like Welker wasn't back to 100% when he started playing again after his surgery.
I didn't realize people thought we had a problem at kicker. Well, he's not the Tom Brady of his position, therefore he sucks. Is that right?
We get what we deserve.
------------------ “On a day when they could have had impact players David Terrell or Koren Robinson..they took Georgia defensive tackle Richard Seymour, who had 1 sacks last season in the pass-happy SEC and is too tall to play tackle at 6-6 and too slow to play defensive end. This genius move was followed by trading out of a spot where they could have gotten the last decent receiver in Robert Ferguson and settled for tackle Matt Light, who will not help any time soon.”
It's something to monitor. The Ghostowski pre-injury was probably worth the contract. I believe he was perfect in the 2006 playoffs and I really don't remember him missing any key FG's in any playoff games altogether. His kickoff distances were crucial too. But if next year comes and he is still middle of the pack in FG% and towards the bottom in TB%, we've got to part ways with that contract. Same argument when we let AV go and went with Ghost in 2006, when you feel someone new can come in and provide the same if not better production for a small fraction of the price, you've got to opt for change. It worked then until Ghost's injury 4.5 years later. But like I said I'm willing to wait till next year to see if this is a trend.
Sorry, He seems to miss to many "easy" FGs in my opinion. Short ones get missed some times. And he shanked that 50 yard by like 25 feet to the left. My son and I often think Brady and BB should just go for it cause we think he sux.
