    What a dumb question about kicking distance. Do you know who asked it? Whoever it is, he doesn't know the difference between long kicks (SG has stronger leg than AV) and pressure kick (AV is proven, SG is not).

    A lot of us will breathe easier when SG makes a FG with no time left on the clock. But if the kick was from 50 yards, I'd rather have SG than AV. AV's record for long kicks wasn't that great.

    And there will be some finger-nail chewing the first time SG kicks in the snow, too.

    Very good point. Also Adam was a mediocre kicker , then good, then great.

    IIRC (no guarantees), signing AV over Bahr was not popular, and after his second (third?) season, Tuna almost cut him.

    Not to beat up on AV. The Snow Bowl kick was the greatest in the history of the NFL, and he did run Hershel Walker down from behind once, but he wasn't perfect at the start of his career. And even at the end, everyone praises him for that game-winning kick against Carolina, and conveniently forgets that that last kick was necessary only because he had two missed FGs earlier in the game.

    One of those was blocked, don't know how much of it was his fault.

    Theres a chance that Gostkowski will NOT have to kick a ball in the snow for the remainer of the 2006 season - If we win sunday in Foxboro where it will not be snowing - If we then go to San Diego where it will NOT be snowing and then in the Indianapolis dome where the only snowfall would be on the outside,we won't have to worry about that till next winter.

    I agree, but it could happen, KC wins this week, we beat Baltimore and KC takes out SD. KC plays at the Razor in a few weekends. Its been a wierd winter, quite mild.

    Another funny, by BB against the media.

    Q: Just going off of what happened last week with Pacman Jones, does Miller compare to Jones in terms of return style?

    BB: Well I haven't seen Miller return any punts this year. He's really a kickoff returner. Washington is the punt returner.

    HELL; with our new surface and heating underneath it there is a chance Gostkowski will play his WHOLE PATRIOTS CAREER WITHOUT KICKING A HOME FG IN THE SNOW.

    Even if it snows it won't accumulate; so what is the difference between that and kicking in the rain?
