Maybe it's just me but it seems like this guy misses a ton of important kicks, or even worse..... easy kicks. Bill is ruthless when cutting players so I'm a little perplexed as to how Stephen is still here. :confused: Why haven't we drafted a new kicker?

Yeah, they may need to start looking at replacements in the next year or so

I don't hate Ghost with the vitriol some do, I think a lot has to do with his past as a consistent kicker and the fact that he has gotten himself out of that crazy missing extra point thing he was doing a few years ago.



Also, the kicking around the league is a bit funky right now, Ghost is far from the worst kicker going, and I still would trust him to make a kick if it counted (for whatever reason)

He was garbage a few years ago.

He was most certainly part of the reason why the Pats lost today.

He sucks ass...

How many games has he actually cost the Pats. He is our leading scorer in history and a very accurate kicker.

Ghost ain't what he used to be, but chances are whoever you replace him with would be worse.

This is what sucks even worse...there has to be some college kickers that are good. You would think.

He used to be pretty dang good. Not so much lately.

Deep behind enemy lines.
It seems the QB's huge mistake before the half cost us big-time. The "hands" defense didn't do us any favors. It's not all on the idiot kicker.

Totally agree...Brady right before the half looked like a rookie out there.

But, Ghost didn't help either. He left 4 points...

And the defense...ugh.

And never forget...the coaching, or lack of.

Jesus, are you going to cut everyone who ever misses a tackle or throws and interception? Come off the ledge.

It's what? Week 14 and how many extra points has he missed so far this year?

How long was the field goal he missed and what is his accuracy at that range compared to the top five NFL kickers.

Was he good today? No. Will the Pats be better dropping him and picking up the best FA available. Ha ha.

Ghost has been ebb and flow for a few years now. Hardly just this year. He isn't the only problem (this defense is in serious need of a talent infusion), but, the kicker should do his job consistently.

I wonder if the punter can make extra points and field goals decent?

The inventor died going over a clif on his Segway. One of the most ironic of ironys. :party:

Actually the inventor is Dean Kamen. He sold the company to a British guy who died driving one off a cliff.
