Due to the crucial misses Adam Vinatieri has made recently, Dan Dakich and Mike Chappell weigh on what is really going on with the legendary kicker.

 

"Is it time to start looking at the kicking situation with the Colts." 

 

"I am sure they have. Having questions about the kicking situation is touchy because Vinatieri is the greatest kicker of all time, but he is missing kicks that are costing us games. It's not what he has done but what is he doing for us now. So what do you do? Chris Ballard is always planning ahead and I'm sure he is bringing in kickers to weigh his options. I wouldn't be surprised if they move on, but it depends on how Vinatieri performs on Sunday. The next step is to either cut or move on from Vinatieri. However, the hard part is replacing him." 

 

 "Do you think Vinatieri is hurt at all?" 

"Thats a good question and I asked him last week. Vinatieri said that he has some tendonitis in his left knee, but they got it under control. But he was hurt at the end of last year. The thing is he is missing by putz, not ten yard whiffs. Are there spooks in his head? I don't know he is human. You just have to wonder, if there is something going on in his head or not. Everyone is thinking "boy I hope he can hit this one" and that's not where you want your kicker to be."
