Kicked in rain - per 1310 the ticket!
Please please please, don't let it come down to a field goal..
And the dome kicker continues to be exposed. :bang2:
Really???? In a long career like his and ne has NEVER kicked in the rain :bang2:
Not the best day for him to work out of his slump.
Per the Ticket?? yawn...
Seriously, he kicked in the CFL for years before coming to the Colts. I bet he's seen plenty of weather issues.
I just love it when the excuses come built in - but that is SOME 'fact'.
However, Jerry's paying him enough to kick in a tornado.
actually his % outdoors is better than indoors i think.
He nailed quite a few in the snow over the years
raise the white flag, its over :wink2:
He said that in an interview, that in his entire career in the NFL, he's never kicked in the rain... That's unbelievable..
Isn't that the truth....
He kicked plenty of times in the rain while in WVU. I would also imagine he did the same in Canada.
Oooh...let's all wig out.
It's hard to believe that, since he's been in the NFL 9 years.. He's kicked in snow, but not rain...
i'm looking forward to him kicking, personally.
he'll be fine. you'll see.
just checked the radar.............rain is moving out of the area as i type this.
let's get nuts!!!!!!!!!!!
He kicked in a driving snow storm in Denver one night, I'm sure that is worse than rain.
On October 6, 2003, Vanderjagt kicked in the rain at Tampa Bay. He went 5-for-5 on PATs and 1-for-1 on FG attempts, making a 29-yarder in overtime to win the game.
He might have kicked in the rain before 2000 or in Canada, but I can't find anything prior to 2000. In the NFL, he has never missed a kick when it's raining or snowing (8-for-8 on field goals, 12-for-12 on PATs).
Mike Vanderjagt and Shaun Suisham are both active, which means Bill Parcells went short at another position. We don't know which one yet because the inactives are not in.
Vanderjagt and Suisham are on the field warming up with Suisham expected to handle the kickoff duties. Vanderjagt just missed a 53-yarder badly, short and right. We've said it before, but the ball just does not jump off his foot.

It's raining, it's pouring ...
The tarp is still covering the Texas Stadium field with players having to do some early stretching and throwing on the sidelines. Not sure when the grounds crew will get a move on to take the thing off.
While it's expected Mike Vanderjagt will kick field goals, we haven't seen him warm up yet to get a feel for how he is doing.

Maybe he forgot, or was drunk during that game, that's what he said in an interview.. Thanks for clearing that up..
