Scott Norwood can sleep easy tonight. The kicking choke of the 90s has now been eclipsed by the choke of the 00s.

No he's not. Norwood was at least close on his attempt.

I remember the vanderjagt choke against Miami in the playoffs back in 2000(ish). That one was much better.

wrong, Norwood's was a 47 yarder...outdoors. Vanderjerk's was 46 yards, in a dome...and like Robfins said, Norwood's barely missed, vanderjerk's was wide right by the width of a football field.

Right, so this is even more embarrassing.

I thought he meant "closer" as in "closer to being good", but maybe I'm wrong.

Vanderjagt's kick would have only been good if the goal posts were located outside of the back right corner of the end zone.

wasn't that from like 54 yards though. Hardly a choke

Yeah. Plus, Wildcard and Conference games get remembered as well, but, for the most part, Divisional Round games don't. Probably because it's usually a fait accompli (80% of home teams win).

You know, Vanderjagt gets at least 9 dome games per year, and the Colts generally drive fairly close to the end zone. If you replaced him with a merely decent kicker with a strong leg, you could probably get very close to his accuracy numbers and massively upgrade his kickoff distance. Then you wouldn't have freaking Jose Cortez occupying an additional roster spot. It's not really a concern now, but it will be if they ever want to develop depth.

i hate when the kicker gets all the blame for a loss. even in vinatieri's case, which is the opposite, really, he doesn't and shouldn't get all the credit. the colts should not have let themselves get into that position, and a 46 yarder isn't a gimme, even indoors.

that should be good. i think that the comments vanderjagt made about manning a few years back had some validity, but he should have kept them to himself. he's gonna get a lot for this...

Nah, this time he chose to deflect the blame onto his O-Line. "I'm trying to be a good teammate, but we had some problems with protection." :shakeno:

The entire Colts roster choked. The game wasn't lost because of Mike Vanderjagt.

I think vanderjagt is fine. you cant really blame the kicker for the loss. If your offense, which some people even say might be the best ever, cant score a TD till the last quarter, blame them. Defense played good, you cant expect them to play shutdown D, and they made the stops when they needed it.

My point: all blame goes on offense and no where else--not vanderjagt. ANd not the whole offense, just manning and the line.


vanderjagt shouldnt open his mouth either. What should happen is, manning calls a team dinner and blames himself, and then the oline stands up and blames themselves. Then they can move on.

46 yards isnt a chipshot it should have been closer than it was but it wasnt choking

and as for the one against miami a few years back

it was a 50 yarder not exactly a chipshot either

It wasnt choking, just a missed kick, if he misses it in the regular season everyone wouldnt care because it isnt an easy kick to make

Believe it or not, he's the most accurate kicker in NFL history (87.5%) and owns the record for most consecutive field goals (42 FGs from 2002 to 2004).

aHH He is still mad abot his prediction of the Colts "Blowing Out" the Steelers. Sorry Dom, you were wrong.

DRAFT a KICKER he's one of the best kickers in the NFL. Its bad to blame this game on the kicker he shouldn't have even been kicking it. Bad call on interception.
