BB did this for the vet, so he can catch on with another team before all the vacancies are filled. Didn't Green Bay release Billy Cundiff?
To my I like Stephen Gostkowski
Go Gostowski!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are all rooting for ya!
That was a dramatica announcement!
There goes the two kicker theory.
The Ghost > Vinatraitor. :rocker:
Ok I wish, but screw Vinatraitor.
YES - NEM was wrong again.
I think we all (well, almost all) knew it was over at the end of the last game.
BB was talking about making a decision about what they would do for Saturday...so he has made his choice. A bit surprised...but yes, he was released so he could catch on. Gramatica is NOT all that bad...seems like he has recovered from his injury. Good luck to him!!
I saw this coming. The kid did a good job in the last game. So what were they going to do, let Gramatica kick in the next game? Patriots-80 had it right, a chance for Martin to catch on with another team. It will be interesting to see where he ends up. Probably Miami, then the writers can site another example of how good Miami has gotten.
I suspect this also gives Martin the chance to get a slightly better than vet minimum deal if 2 or 3 teams take an interest. Good luck to him, I hope his time here helped him with his comback.
I think the kid is going to be OK. Just hope that we don't put too much pressure on him to win too soon. I can easily see that the Pats veteran players will keep Gostkowski's head on straight and focused to get the job done. Once again, in BB we trust. And he is usually right.
I will admit, though, I am a little more nervous than 5 minutes ago. Having Gramatica was a comforting feeling through the preseason games just in case.
Here's the info:
Thanks to Gramatica and "good luck". I'm glad that the team seems to have played it straight with him.
Not only was NEM wrong, but so was John Madden 07!
I'm glad it's the kid, he seems really cool and level headed in interviews. I'm glad we have him.
No pressure on the Ghost?
Nah, if the kid misses a game winner I'll have his head on the chopping block
In case of what?
Dunno maybe the Ghost will sprain his ankle like Vinatraitor?
In case Gostlowski misses 3 FG this week.
