We’re up 13-0 in Miami and all the people who only post when bad things happen are here.
We're all waiting for the game to end in replay of "The Play" from last December. (You know, the one that basically showed we were going nowhere in the playoffs).

He hit 84.4% of his field goals last year. Is that extremely good?
He missed 5 field goals in the regular season, and 3 of them were from 50+, so to answer your question, yes?


My only question to the Ghost haters, name 5 kickers in the NFL you'd rather have? And remember, comparing Ghost to someone like Will Lutz, who kicks in a weather controlled dome for most of the season isn't fair. It is not easy to kick in New England year in and year out. He's got issues in Miami, but so does the rest of the team, but there are very few guys I'd rather have kicking a 45 yarder in the wind, when it's 10 degrees out, in January.

Unlike the other guy cherry picking, I’ll tell you:

No, it’s not extremely good. In fact, it’s below average for an NFL Kicker. The problem is not that he’s awful, but that he’s being paid like one of the best kickers in the NFL when he’s basically no different from the average kicker

Answer the question, who would you rather have, that's available?

what is this? Career passing TD's v. Miami?
MIght be (but only at home). But it’s the number of players Brady has thrown a touchdown pass to. Vinnie is second all time with 70 but played for many teams so had a completely new roster to choose from each time he moved. Brady throws TDs to the concessionaires.

And if you're talking about me cherry picking, you literally don't understand football. Ghost went 27/32 in 2016, which coincidentally, was exactly what he did in 2018, both for 84.4%. The season in between, he went 37/40 for 92.5%. In 2017, he was 4/4 from 50+. Last year, he was 2/5. You're literally worried about 2-3 kicks from 50+ yards to determine the guy is done. It's absurd. If he continues to miss kicks going forward, then maybe there's an issue, but I think this right now has more to do with the holds and getting used to the new timing than anything else.

And, there is NOBODY else out there that's better.

I think the OL looks ok considering they are playing backups at all positions except the 2 guards, and the TE's are pretty much backups too.
