Default Mike "Vanderjerk"

Harrison responds to kicker's remarks

Quote:
By HOWARD ULMAN, AP Sports Writer
January 11, 2005

FOXBORO, Mass. (AP) -- Mike Vanderjagt's mouth is still causing trouble, even though he's criticizing his opponents and not his coach and quarterback. On Tuesday, New England Patriots safety Rodney Harrison fired back at the Indianapolis kicker. "He has to be a jerk, Vanderjerk,'' Harrison said.

Many of Harrison's teammates brushed off Vanderjagt's remark, made shortly after Indianapolis dominated Denver 49-24 in the first round of the AFC playoffs. Speaking about the Patriots, he said "I think they're ripe for the picking'' in Sunday's playoff matchup with the Colts.

Vanderjagt also said on WISH-TV in Indianapolis that, "I think they're not as good as the beginning of the year and not as good as last year.''

Those comments stirred little controversy in Indianapolis, where his outspoken nature is well known. That's a sharp contrast to his comments two years ago when he said after the Super Bowl that Peyton Manning should show more emotion and coach Tony Dungy is too mild-mannered to be effective.

Manning then called Vanderjagt an "***** kicker'' and Dungy said Vanderjagt should have come to him with his complaints instead of airing them on a Canadian cable television show. Manning and Vanderjagt later apologized to each other and Vanderjagt met with Dungy.

Now Vanderjagt has provided material that coach Bill Belichick might use to provide extra motivation for a team seeking its third Super Bowl title in four years. "Have I ever done it?'' he said with a tiny smile. "Yeah, probably I have.'' But quarterback Tom Brady didn't think Vanderjagt's words carried much weight.

"I mean he's just talking, you know? It's a kicker talking,'' Brady said. "Whether one guy says something or not, a team that's won two Super Bowls in three years and has established the type of reputation for playing hard and winning football games, I mean it kind of speaks for itself.

I just found that hilarious....

Anyhow, I don't see why anyone should be riled up over Vanderjagt's comments. :/

I personally hate the Patriots. I dont mind the Colts but losing to them everytime we play them is getting annoying...

Ever seen the comercial were all the pros are picking teams for backyard ball and nobody wants the kicker? "Hey meterman, lace'em up." Hilarious. I doubt that anyone really cares what ole' Vandy thinks.

Remember the "Playmaker" Madden commerical for 2004. It is the one where guys are saying "make the big time run," "the big time hit" and then Vinetari comes on and says "Makes the big time kick" as Ray Lewis goes "Kickers will speak when spoken, too." That one was great...

Why is a sports writer interviewing the Kicker of all people before the game? I can understand after a game if he made crucial kicks, but really, the kicker is farthest from any game planning or special attention. This is just bad journalism.

Maybe he drew the short straw.

and besides vanderjerk has been known to say dumb things, last time he dogged Dungy and Payton. I'm sure the reporter was hoping for the same.

Vanderjact backed it up, though. He was perfect during the season, you cant ask for much more from a kicker...
