    Patriots are undefeated since Matt joined us for the Steeler game on 11/14.

    Just saying ... with all the love being thrown around ... give Matt a group hug.

    Matt-ula (as I like to call him), is the glue that holds this 2010 group together. Three Cheers for Matt. Hip Hip..... Horay. :rocker:

    A few days ago somebody mentioned Katula, and I had no idea who he was.

    That's probably the ultimate compliment to a long snapper: nobody knows your name.

    Thanks for posting the images of him as well. I don't think I ever saw what he looked like before :rofl:

    He's done a great job. As jmt57 said, it's probably the ultimate compliment that we don't even know who he is really.

    I liked Ingram. He was very good his rookie season. I don't know what happened or where it went off the tracks, but it clearly did. Katula has done a great job stabilizing the position for us.

    And Shayne Graham as well If I remember right.

    The feature on him on last weeks All Access was very good. Quite sad as well. If you aren't a Franchise Kicker, you have a hectic career of moving around.

    If Graham continues to put FG's through the posts, do you think Bill keeps him around to compete with Gostkowski through Camp?

    I doubt it, there's plenty of kicker needy teams out there still, I think graham will likely move on. That is if gostowski really will have no longterm effects from the injury. graham hasn't had to make a clutch field goal yet which slightly worries me but hopefully he does fine and he gets a superbowl ring out of it :rocker: .

    I'd assume no, but should never assume anything with BB. Still, I think Graham may have better offers available after going 11 for 11.

    Graham was signed as a short-term injury replacement, so probably signed for the vet minimum for one season only, so he'd be a FA. If he gets a firm offer from someone, he'll take it. I'd be surprised if he didn't get an offer when guys like Graham Gano and Nick Folk have jobs.
