    Based on article and his strong kicking a stray thought for someone with time to research:

    HOW MANY PLAYER-GAMES HAVE WE LOST TO INJURIES OCCURRING ON KICKOFFS? (out of how many kick offs versus how many touchbacks).

    Not that I in any way thing Grammatica is better than A.V.; but if he can consistently put a kickoff into the End Zone (deep) and force the other team to take a touchback; will he actually be an improvement in the ENTIRE TEAM because we dont lose key guys to injury?

    From this article, it sounds like he's kicking 50yd field goals consistantly and that he's got his confidence back after corrective surgery. All good things, he'll have the opportunity to fight it out with rooks in camp. Nice find for Pats.

    Thanks, good read. I'll say it again, I think this is a very good signing. i'm surprised at how negative the reaction is from many around here.

    It's a great signing. If he can get back to where he was, he's as good as our previous kicker (in different ways). If he can't, we cut him and move on. Great no risk shot.

    EXACTLY! His real name is Mudd, greedy b@st@rd!

    On this, the seventh day of April two-thousand and six, his name has been stricken from the books of the Metal Gods!

    He may only be referred to as Mudd from this day forth!

    You will pay for your insolence and breech of loyalty, oh, God-forsaken "Mudd"!

    (Even though I picked him to beat us in OT on a FG when the Colts visit in November!)

    It really would be a total steal if he turned back into the kicker he was with the Bucs

    And of course, Belichick has a strong track record of ressurecting careers. Harrison, Dillon, Washington, Fauria all came here with question marks, and all ended up getting at least one ring, if not more!

    Grammatica next in line?

    BTW, was he the kicker on the Bucs Super Bowl winner?

    PS: OT - Note his resemblance to the Flinstones "Gazoo" in the link below...
