I don't understand why Vinatieri is getting booed and heckled. After all he has done for the Patriots, all the game-winning kicks he has made, why boo him?
Morten Andersen was booed in the Superdome just a month or so ago for the same reason. Saints fans are not any better.I don't understand why Vinatieri is getting booed and heckled. After all he has done for the Patriots, all the game-winning kicks he has made, why boo him?
But he thought his best chance for winning another ring was with their archenemy. He turned his back on the Pats. You have to expect that the fans will turn on you when you do that.Still, anyone who won my team a Superbowl with his foot would have my respect for whoever he played for.
To be fair, I believe some of those players were looking for that last big payday and already had rings. Brady took less, and many FA prospects will to play for the Pats. The Pats seem adept at developing cheaper talent, and are in fine cap shape. The Eagles are also notorious for low-balling older players.Not True.
Branch, Milloy, McGinnest, Law, Vinateri... just to name a few.
I'd show love to him otherwise, but not when Vinny is in position to score for the enemy. This game may mean home field, or a late FG could end the Pats' season down the road. Strange that Vinny's first miss was tonight. The fans were right about booing.
