    Gostkowski: Getting ball to kickers isn’t a snap

    Gostkowski: Getting ball to kickers isn’t a snap AP article from the Nashua Telegraph

    That comment makes me wonder if Belichick will be more inclined to make a decision on the long snapper early in camp, so Gostkowski and Hanson can spend the remainder of the preseason getting their timing down with whomever wins that camp battle.

    Nice roundup. Thanks for posting all of this. Ghost is one of my favorite players.

    Respects,

    Heh... I rarely even think about that other guy we had kicking before Ghost got here. The one who is dead to me for signing with the Dolts. :cool:

    Food for thought. . . . Here are all the kickers who've had a better season, percentage-wise, than Gostkowski in 2008 (min. 20 attempts or so) according to pro-football-reference.com. [I've only shown the best season for each player.]

    Note the ages in parentheses.

    Is there anyway to sort this data by Dome % per season? Didn't Adam go almost his entire career with the Pats without missing an indoor kick?

    Not without going into the individual players and pulling that data manually, no. :(

    That said, the key point here is that most of those kickers aren't peaking until around or even after age 30.
