Lately I have read some reporters who have come out and said the Pats would not have won a single SB without Adam V. I certainly believe that Adam is the most clutch kicker in the history of the NFL. But at the sametime, I believe it is a bit of an extreme stretch and ridiculously ignorant to make the statement that the Pats would have none of the Superbowls without him. Now undoubtedly, I would not have made this thread had Adam V not signed with the enemy. A lot of this is just me trying to make light of the situation, and I don't deny that in the least. Again, Benedict Adam is the most clutch kicker in the history of the NFL, and I don't deny that. The statement I have the problem with is in saying that the Pats wouldn't have won any Super Bowls without Adam. So I thought I would clarify this a little. Probably would not have won the first. I believe most kickers would have missed the 45 yarder Adam hit in the final minute. Not only the distance and the snow, but the pressure of knowing the season is over if it is missed. But to be fair, Janakowski also hit a 45 yard field goal in that same game. And it went through with room to spare. And he hit another from 38 yards. That is not to say that he would have hit the 45 yarder at the end had the roles been reversed. But it certainly isn't out of the realm of possibility that there exists a kicker other then Adam V who also would have made that kick. Regardless, that kick coupled with the last second FG in the SB, I put the odds extremely low to remote that someone else would have made all those kicks. Most likely would have won the second. This is certainly not to take a swipe at Adam, even though nothing would please me more at the present time. But let us not forget that the Pats needed that last second field goal due in large part to Adam missing 2 very makeable field goals earlier in the game. He was 33% on the day. Indoors no less. I understand one of them was blocked. I can't remember if that was because the kick was low or not. Also, I think there is a decent chance that a lot of other kickers would have made the last 41 yard kick indoors. In any case, had that been missed, the game would have went into overtime, where at that point, whoever won the coin toss would have probably won the game! Absolutely would have won the second It was a freaking 22 yarder, the Pats were already ahead and it put them up by 10, plenty of time left. Basically an extra point. Any kicker would have made that! Again, I obviously would not have even brought this up had he not signed with the enemy. The biggest reason I am doing this is to try to put a good spin on a crappy situation. But I don't think any of my assesment is unreasonable! So in my final assesment, I believe the Pats would at a minimum, still have 2 SB wins without Adam! I highly doubt they would have won the first though, as the other kicker would have had to make the 45 yarder in the snow or the season was over, and a 48 yarder as uhumm(2 seconds left) time expired in the SB!
