I think we have a solid game performing kicker in Gostkowski and think he is doing fine as a rookie but I don't think we should disrespect Vinatieri despite the fact he went to play for the enemy and for more money. Remember we might only be talking about the possibility of winning our first super bowl this year if we had a kicker in the past 5 years who did not perform well under extreme stress and importance like Adam did in his days here and it is very unlikely that too many kickers make that long FG in the snow bowl game to start up the 'dynasty' and make Brady a star in the making,We may never see a veteran clutch kicker like that again here for a long time,Lets hope Gostkowski is that man for now and in years to come to dispute this statement. Adam was our best kicker ever in Patriots history and we should respect what he did for us in the past,True he might have been a traitor as some have called him but most NFL players or even everyday people would jump ship for more money with few exceptions like Bruschi and Brady do here. Adam was great for us and we would not have traded him for any previous kicker in NFL history when he was making clutch FGs game after game. So for all of you calling him names now just because he is the enemy,remember 1 thing ...When you were watching the ball go thru the uprights at the end of SB 36 to win our first championship and against Carolina in SB 38 you just wanted to jump onto the field and hold up Adam and give hugs and some fan love like the other players did that day. Don't be a hypocrite and hate him now and hope he dies or breaks a leg like some have posted in the past,You can hope he misses every kick come next sunday and as a diehard Patriots fan I do as well,but I will always have a deep respect and admiration in my heart for what Adam did for us in 10 years and no Vinatieri in a Colts uniform will take that away,take that Colts uniform off and he is still the same guy who was a big part of the reason we have 3 Lombardi Trophies sitting in a case display at Gillette - Don't ever forget that. Just hoping we have no major Adam bashing this week on here,Would hate to see that - All we should do is wish he has a rotten day on sunday,Thats what being a fan of the Patriots is really about,hoping the other team messes up .
