    O.k. I misspelled his name but you all know who I'm talking about. Clutch boy.
    This may be premature, but if the Patriots don't resign their kicker would you want him as a Titan?

    He is supposed to be expensive. But expensive for a kicker is still cheap against your cap, usually. I would like to see Vinateiri as a Titan. I just wasn't sold on Bironas last year (missed xps?). My concern with Adam V. is his age, he will be 34 this year.

    I don't watch many Pats games. How is he on kickoffs? At his age, that would be my concern. I don't want to be in a position where we have a kickoff specialist taking up a roster spot and having Craig kickoff isn't the answer either.
    I'm not sold on Bironas myself and I think we should bring in competition, but I'm not sure this is the answer.

    I think a solid kicker is the last piece you fill when trying to build a contender.
    Titans have too many priorities in front of that.

    a good Kicker can make a difference between a few wins or losses.

    Sure, if you have a good enough team to keep it close.
    Get good first, then plug in the solid kicker last. Titans have been far from good the past couple years.

    Does anyone have any idea how many supplemental picks the Titans will be receiving this year?

    The success we had with G Anderson was one of the reasons I think it would be cool to get Vinatieri. I don't remember his kickoffs last season, whether they were good or not.
    You guys have made a good point about us needing other things more. I just think you can steal a few wins on special teams. And I am getting sick of losing. Anything that will help, I would welcome at this point. I would even take Ricky Williams, Randy Moss, or T.O. :banned:

    Anderson was horrible in KO situtations.
    Seems like Hentrich made KO's too... that's how poor Anderson was.
    Gary was very accurate but his range was short cause he's old as dirt.

    He's so old he farts dust.
