    i was at the cowboys /vikings preseason game, where he missed:

    - a last second 30yr ish FG to win
    - an OT 30 yrd ish FG

    and i'm pretty sure he missed ANOTHER in OT.. but i know for sure he missed 2
    I was at that game too.
    He missed two 30 yard field goals in OT.
    The same game that Parcells decided to kick the extra point to send it into overtime instead of just going for two.

    So long Vanderchoke!
    Skol!
    Go Vikings!

    Well credit to the Cowboys for making this decision rather than leaving it and then suffering later on with another more vital miss. Wonder where he'll end up going to
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Cowboys | Parcells discusses Vanderjagt release
    Wed, 29 Nov 2006 07:23:33 -0800

    Rob Phillips, of DallasCowboys.com, reports Dallas Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells explained the club's thought process behind releasing veteran PK Mike Vanderjagt after 11 games this season. "We talked about this collectively with the organization, including the coaches, the personnel people, obviously the ownership," Parcells said. "And we just felt like we weren't seeing what we thought we were going to see." In eight seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. Vanderjagt made 87.5 percent of his field goals, but was converting just 72.2 percent with the Cowboys this year.

    That is what happens to "Liquored Up Kickers."

    LOL

    I was really surprised at his troubles this season.
    Just think we were wishing we had him for a while around here.

    He really has no excuse except he may have lost his edge.

    Holy! That is some funny poop. You're right, 13 for 18 isn't completely horrible... unless you get paid $2M a year to kick FGs.

    He will be a lot cheaper now!

    Cowboys | Team will no longer spend big on kickers
    Wed, 29 Nov 2006 09:18:05 -0800

    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says the team will no longer spend lots of money on the kicker position after the team released PK Mike Vanderjagt. Vanderjagt was given a $2.5 million signing bonus in the offseason and went just 13-for-18 in field goal attempts before his release. Jones says the team will rely on younger, cheaper kickers in the future.

    I hope Dramatica is jumping up and down celebrating and lands on TO 's foot. Take him out for the rest of the year.
    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it!!

    I vote for removal of T-Ho's voice box.

    ============================

    T.O. QUESTIONS DECISION TO DUMP KICKER

    You know, Terrell Owens had been so quiet lately that we thought he'd accidentally attempted suicide again, and succeeded.

    But he's alive, and talking.

    Owens' latest topic?
    The decision of coach Bill Parcells to cut kicker Mike Vanderjagt.

    "I don't see what he did wrong to warrant him being cut," Owens said.
    "I hope it doesn't come back to haunt us.
    Whoever made that decision, I'm pretty sure they're hoping the same thing.

    "Going into the Colts game, the guy was 12-of-15.
    That's still a high kicking percentage," Owens said. "He didn't lose any games for us.
    If I had to put myself in the mix, I feel like I lost some games and I'm still here, so it's just unfortunate."

    Wow.
    T.O. has done many things wrong this year, but this is the first time he has publicly questioned the wisdom of the Tuna.
    Still, given the Tuna's tolerance of T.O. antics earlier in the year, our guess is that Parcells will continue to bite his tongue.

    But here's the key.
    Parcells' stock is up in owner Jerry Jones' eyes right now, since Parcells' faith in quarterback Tony Romo has paid huge dividends.
    So when Jones bends a knee and asks Parcells to come back for 2007, the Tuna might be in a position to dictate one key term.

    "I'll stay if Owens goes."
