Vinatieri's advice inspires McAfee to first football award

Before he could stake serious claim as one of the league's finest punters, before he was rewarded with a five-year, $14 million contract this past offseason, and long before he became the affable and outgoing friend-to-all in the city that's become his home, Pat McAfee was little more than a naïve 21-year-old with a monster right leg. He played football for a living. But...

Is Adam Vinatieri a Hall of Famer?

That was a question posed this week on Reddit, and I couldn’t help but share my opinion in this spot. That’s because I continue to be very conflicted when it comes to allowing pure special-teamers into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. So few spots are available on an annual basis and it feels as though logjams are becoming deeper at an extreme rate. Placekickers are on the field...

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports Kickers are people too. It’s easy to forget until the end of the game when you realize your happiness and the team’s success lie solely, well, in the sole of his shoe.

Kickers are part of the NFL whether we like it or not

Adam Vinatieri and Scott Norwood could tell you how important one place kick can become.  I have watched games when place kickers have made me dance and made me cry.  I have said that I hate them and wish they weren’t a part of the game.  That is not quite true.  Remember, I am an NFL fanatic.

Should the Patriots target a top 10 kicker from the NFL Draft?

Kickers and punters are universally the most under-appreciated positions in the entire NFL. While games, and entire seasons, can hinge on a few key yards of field position or a clutch game-winning field goal, kickers and punters are oft-lamented for their miscues and rarely-remembered for their achievements. Adam Vinatieri and Stephen Gostkowski have largely created a legacy of mistake...
