I hate Vanderjagt, he's a punk. Get the earring out of your ear, stop throwing on field temper tantrums thinking your like the TO of the team and get this through your head: Your the damn kicker.
By the way, when the Colts guy(didn't know who it was) picked up the ball after Jerome fumbled it why didn't he cut all the way to the outside, he just barely moved and tried to outmaneuver Big Ben which totally saved the Steelers.
I really don't get this...Kickers score more points than any other position in the course of a season. Out of the top 30 scorers this past season, 27 were kickers (ALexander, LT, and LJ being the exceptions). So, what does that tell you...that kickers are extremely important. You can't win without a good kicker, or at worst a decent one. I'm not trying to say kickers are the most important players on the field because they aren't, you'll never see one win a MVP award and nor should you, unless you get a kicker who nails 70-80 yd FGs on a regular basis BUT, this seeminly institutionalized behavior of hating on kickers is ridiculous. Where would your team be without a good kicker? You'd be losing games by field goals and extra points.
And yes, Peyton Manning is the definition of Choke.
He does it all during the regular season...goes up against Pittsburgh...and turns into a rookie in his first game? Why? I just dont understand...he has played for 6 years...he has played in the playoffs before...but he cant win the big game?
If it makes anyone feel better Vanderjagt will probably not be back with the Colts anyway because he is a FA and the Colts front office has hinted that they wont want to pay his market value to resign him.
