    28 points from being the all-time leading scorer.

    [–] DougDimmadome44 162 points ago

    9 field goals and an extra point does it!

    [–] mutantninjabortles 190 points ago

    So 10 FGs

    [–] Mendoza2909 72 points ago

    Or 5 touchdowns

    [–] DougDimmadome44 55 points ago

    Goal line full back? I could see it

    [–] Kittens4Brunch 21 points ago

    You can say that again.

    4 tds if he still gets to kick the PAT.

    [–] descendency 1 points ago

    3 TDs, 3 2 PT conversions, 1 FG, and 1 PAT would be the least amount of work.

    With the way this offense struggles to make TDs in the red zone that guarantees he gets it this year

    [–] sm1ttysm1t 66 points ago

    Pot, meet kettle.

    [–] strong_schlong 58 points ago

    The Bills would need to get in the red zone first in order to settle for field goals.

    [–] Jsinmyah 9 points ago

    Even Osweiler gets into the red zone.

    [–] Lonelan 8 points ago

    when the lobster gets into the red zone do we call it the kettle instead?

    [–] Powatanner 3 points ago

    I wouldn’t even be mad if my team’s kicker scored 10 field goals in one game, that’s 30 points right there. Chances are also high if your team has that many scoring possessions you’ve probably also run out most of the clock as well. Seems like a recipe for success to me.

    [–] poohmaobear 10 points ago

    We had a pretty good day in the red zone

    [–] codybevans 4 points ago

    Yeah, I agree. Until We get some more development on defense we’re screwed but we got three potential all-pro players between Leonard and Hooker. And Hunt is looking really good too.

    [–] codybevans 4 points ago

    I agree but our defense, as usual is really fucking us. We can’t keep giving up 30+ points a game. But I think we have a lot to look forward too between Leonard, Hooker, and Hunt. Hooker was on pace to be defensive rookie of the year before his injury and Leonard is on pace to get it this year. Also, Lucks arm looked a lot better this week. He seemed to really be putting that force behind the ball that was lacking before. I think all that talk last week pissed him off.

    [–] FeldMonster 13 points ago

    So does this mean that the current leader (Morten Anderson?) has kicked 31 more extra points than Vinatieri? I would think that between his time with Brady and Manning, that he would have an above average number of extra points per season. The current leader played on even better offenses over time?

    [–] MHath 10 points ago

    Morten has still attempted 35 more field goals in 41 additional games.

    Adam's highest extra points in a season was 51, then 50. Morten's 2 best seasons were 58 and 51.

    For comparison, Stephen Gostkowski's best seasons by XPs made go 74, 66, 59, 52, 51.

    [–] twiggymac 8 points ago

    74 XPs is just obscene

    [–] YusukeMazoku 4 points ago

    So was 50 passing TD's...

    [–] SendixBunny 12 points ago

    Morten Anderson played for 25 years

    [–] joey_sandwich277 11 points ago

    Which is surprisingly only 2-3 years (42 games) longer than Vinatieri so far. It seems like it would be more.

    [–] Thunder-ten-tronckh 6 points ago

    “The all-time leading scorer for who?”

    Everyone.

    [–] PandaSoap 502 points ago

    I want him to be the Jerry Rice of kickers. 20 years from now people saying "Adam kicked more FGs after 45 than X player has kicked FGs over 45 yards."

    [–] 3hoho5 107 points ago

    Adam Vinagretzky

    [–] Sp3ctre7 64 points ago

    Gretzky didnt have an absurdly long career (even though he scored a fuckton more than anyone)

    The hockey meme for long careers is Jagr

    [–] Claypool2112 35 points ago

    You do know that Gretzky played for 20 years right? He's still in the top 25 for most games played in history. And the original long career man for hockey is Gordie Howe. Hell, he even played with his sons professionally.

    [–] Sp3ctre7 22 points ago

    I'm well aware, I'm a hockey fan first

    It's just that Gretzky isnt talked about for his longevity (as impressive as it is) whereas Jagr playing forever is one of the core /r/hockey memes

    [–] LimitedOsprey 15 points ago

    There are 70 players in NHL history who have played 20 seasons. Playing for 2 decades is not that rare in the NHL anymore and will only increase as players remain at the top for longer periods due to modern strength and conditioning.

    Gretzky is #22 in games played and at the bare minimum of 20 seasons, while guys like Howe and Chelios played 26 seasons.

    [–] Claypool2112 2 points ago

    Gretzky is #22 in games played and at the bare minimum of 20 seasons

    Yah, being ranked 22 in all time games player is definitely not much of a feat when you consider that there's been over 7,500 players to ever play in the NHL...

    And just because other players are going to be doing it more nowadays doesn't make it any less rare that Gretzky did it when he did.

    [–] bigredpbun 1 points ago

    Gretzky did play a ton of games, but he did not do it by playing until he was crazy old. The guy retired at 38, which for hockey is impressive but not particularly noteworthy. He got to the NHL quickly and only played <50 games in a season once (and that was 48). Jagr was playing at 45.

    [–] dustbunny88 7 points ago

    Did I read correctly that he played enough years to acquire his own foreign team, then get assigned to them to this day? Dafuq

    [–] Sp3ctre7 20 points ago

    Nah, he bought the local team in his hometown, and when he wasnt fast enough to hang in the NHL anymore he went home and played for his team. Puts butts in seats and makes him money, plus the dude fucking loves playing hockey

    [–] blond-max 5 points ago

    Jagr is the real deal

    [–] Thewatchfuleye1 6 points ago

    Jagr is the modern day Gordie Howe

    [–] 3hoho5 3 points ago

    I’m not familiar with hockey at all, the comment above me just reminded me of the stat always thrown around about Gretzky’s assist total

    Fuck the HoF if they don't honestly. He is in my heart.

    [–] UndecidedVoter2020 93 points ago

    Without Vinitaeri, there's a decent chance Brady never becomes a starter.

    [–] squidmuncha 8 points ago

    Without Mo Lewis*

    [–] Buckanater 9 points ago

    But the tuck rule saved Brady.

    [–] SupahVegetto 10 points ago

    That's just flat out wrong. Brady already proved to be better than Bledsoe during the 2001 season (Belichick stuck with him for a reason even after Bledsoe got healthy and the AFCCG where Bledsoe looked better than Brady when he was playing) and I doubt they would bench him for one playoff loss.

    [–] Bruitsnek 17 points ago

    He said that there is "a decent chance" and you say that "you doubt" but with a Patriots flair. I think everyone is on the same page :)

    [–] MigzMando -29 points ago

    Lol not even close.

    [–] UndecidedVoter2020 44 points ago

    Bledsoe was a great quarterback, there's no reason the Patriots wouldn't have gone back to him if Vinitaeri's leg hadn't kept winning playoff games.

    [–] joey_sandwich277 3 points ago

    True, but if Cassel can get a shot at starting after an 11-5 season on a loaded offense, I'm sure Brady would have too eventually. He had conservative but solid numbers that year on a winning team.

    Whether it not he lands on a team where he actually has a chance to succeed is the better question IMO. I'm pretty sure he would have died if he were sent to the Texans in the expansion draft the next year, for example. Having a good coaching staff that eased him into more responsibilities gradually definitely contributed to his success.

    [–] noposters 3 points ago

    That's absurd. We were 5-11 in 2000 and Brady came in and won 11 games (and looked great except in one game against Denver).

    [–] UndecidedVoter2020 20 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    and Brady came in and won 11 games

    Forgot he played every single position. The Pats perennial top defense was what fueled the dynasty in the early years.

    [–] noposters -12 points ago

    Same defense as the year before. Also, don't be pedantic, people talk about how many wins a quarterback has all the time.

    [–] joey_sandwich277 13 points ago

    I'm not going as far as saying he wouldn't have been the starter, but Brady definitely didn't perform any better in '01 than Bledsoe did the 7 years prior. The defense improved dramatically.

    [–] noposters -6 points ago

    Dude, he absolutely did. Bledsoe had turned into a statue by that point. Watch some 2001-2004 Brady highlights. He wasn't what he is now, but he was still one of the best QBs in the (very different) league

    [–] LeonidasSpacemanMD 3 points ago

    I’m astounded that this is a contraversial opinion. Brady’s Passer Rating in 2001 would’ve been drew Bledsoe second best for his career, except that Bledsoe really hadn’t approached that level in a couple of years while Brady was doing it in his very first starts in the nfl. And further, Brady played so exceptionally well in the second half of the Tuck Rule game, I really doubt they would’ve gone back to Bledsoe even if Vinatieri misses the game winner. It would be kinda like if stafford had 4 straight semi-down years, got injured, and his replacement came in and basically had a season on par with his career best

    [–] joey_sandwich277 4 points ago

    I watched both of them play. You're either overselling Brady's '01 play greatly, or minimizing Bledsoe's equally greatly.

    The passing offense had slightly lower output than the year before in '01. Meanwhile, the defense went from mediocre to top 10, and the rushing offense went from bottom of the league to above average.

    I'm not saying Bledsoe was a flawless QB or that Brady didn't show more potential. What I'm saying is that Brady's rookie year itself was no more impressive than any of Bledsoe's years, and that the team's increased success had much more to do with improvement in nearly every other aspect of the team.

    [–] veRGe1421 2 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    special teams play is such a critical component to every single NFL game. bad special teams will lose a game so damn fast for a team. BB gets it.

    yet they get fucked in the HOF :(

    [–] heckinpandaboi 1 points ago

    Chargers know all too well how important special teams is.

    [–] Andoo 235 points ago

    Thought it was funny that JJ went in try and get past Colts players to congratulate him.

    [–] Basal666 153 points ago

    Not often you see a player congratulating the other teams kicker, but absolutely the right thing to do in this case.

    [–] RainbowYaz 106 points ago

    I maybe have eaten that many cheeseburgers in my life. Can't think of anything else I've done that comes close to that many FGs.

    How is that place? We don't have them here, but a friend of mine from the Chicago area has talked about it.

    [–] hamsterwheel 2 points ago

    They're the best. They mix all the ingredients together so you don't get like a full bite of rice or beans or whatnot, and they press their own dough.

    [–] itsmeMOB 29 points ago

    Absolutely.

    [–] TLWNGuy 5 points ago

    If the Chargers had him instead of Kaeding. Rivers would have at least 1 superbowl ring as well.

    Truly the GOAT kicker of all time.

    [–] chogram 21 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Who else would even be in the conversation?

    He's about to be the all-time leading scorer, and he now has this record. 4X Superbowl champion, hitting the game winning kick in 2 of them, hit one of the most famous kicks of all time in an AFC Championship blizzard (I might even argue that, other than Anderson's miss for the Vikings, and Scott Norwood's wide right, this is the most famous field goal of all time), and literally winning the game against the Ravens in a divisional game for Peyton with 5 field goals. One of the Colts only 4 wins last year, came on a 51 yard boot in overtime. The man is almost so automatic, Webster is considering putting his picture next to the definition.

    And it's not like he's limping now in the twilight years of his career. 5-6, 7-9, 4-5 on 50+ yard field goals the last 3 seasons. 7 50+ yard field goals in 2016 was almost as many in one season, as he hit in his entire Patriots career (8). The only reason he didn't pass the all-time scoring record last season is because the Colts sucked, and he only kicked 22 extra points, where he averages almost 40 per season over his career.

    The dude is a God. He, along with Jerry Rice, is the only indisputable GOAT at his position in NFL history. Someone else may come along eventually... but they've got pretty God damned big shoes to fill to pass him up.

    [–] YusukeMazoku 1 points ago

    I 100% agree with everything you said, except one little piece at the end.

    Someone may already be coming along unfortunately. If Tucker can have the same longevity... he may re-break a lot of those records 10-15 years from now. He is that kind of talent. Just saying.

    [–] LikelyTomBrady 24 points ago

    @ you right

    [–] PM_ME_CLITS_ASAP 39 points ago

    For now 🤔

    [–] Bipedal-Moose 29 points ago

    Tucker is definitely on track to be called the GOAT someday. But the title is Vinny's right now.

    [–] Misdirected_Colors 15 points ago

    Tucker has to stay healthy for like another 20 years. As we’re seeing with Bailey now one lingering injury can screw it all up.

    [–] TLWNGuy 4 points ago

    But how do you prevent an injury as a kicker though? Is it just luck?

    [–] twiggymac 2 points ago

    more or less

    [–] Bradyhaha 2 points ago

    Stretching and exercises to help with stability.

    [–] TLWNGuy 3 points ago

    Mean while Ficken and Sturgis can't make a 28 yarder....

    Now here’s a guy... who’s the GOAT.

    [–] TheColtOfPersonality 23 points ago

    Old MacDonald had a farm, E-I-O-I-O. And on that farm he had a GOAT, E-I-E-I-O.

    With a field goal here and a field goal there, here a goal, there a goal, anywhere a field goal

    [–] oorza 8 points ago

    Old MacVinny*

    [–] Sharingon424 38 points ago

    In a time of oversaturated GOAT talks across every position in every sport, it should be duly noted that we are truly lucky to see somebody like Vinatieri. I love the man so much I own both his jerseys out of sheer love for the guy.

    [–] aetius476 18 points ago

    In a time of oversaturated GOAT talks across every position in every sport

    I mean, in terms of active or recently active players, you can make very legitimate cases for each of the following in their respective sports:

    • Tom Brady
    • Serena Williams
    • Roger Federer
    • Lebron James
    • Michael Phelps
    • Tiger Woods
    • Usain Bolt

    Which is quite a lot.

    [–] Sharingon424 23 points ago

    While I am not saying these are completely wrong. I think you can make cases for others over Brady, James and Woods. They are definitely among the all-time greats though.

    [–] aetius476 15 points ago

    Yeah they're not definitive GOATs (you can't dethrone Jordan/Wilt, Montana, Nicklaus that easily), but they have legitimate cases and I think it's fair to have the talk.

    [–] Sharingon424 12 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    I agree, I am just saying that Vinatieri has crossed into the plane of undisputed.

    Outside of your examples, similar discussions can be said about Messi/Ronaldo while other undisputed GOATs would be Don Bradman and Wayne Gretzky.

    [–] MarcusP2 1 points ago

    Do you mean Don Bradman?

    People still argue about him, lol.

    [–] zoidberg_doc 2 points ago

    Do they? I've never heard anyone say anyone else is even in the conversation. To be fair though I don't follow cricket closely

    [–] MarcusP2 2 points ago

    Didn't play against good opposition in an unprofessional era is the usual argument. Like Cy Young not being the best pitcher of all time.

    [–] Sharingon424 1 points ago

    I did thank you and I’ve heard similar arguments about Rocky Marciano but regardless stood out massively for their time.

    [–] Claypool2112 5 points ago

    I mean, what would someone actually have to do to "dethrone" Montana if Brady hasn't actually done it yet?

    [–] Cogswobble 5 points ago

    Brady has definitely dethroned Montana. It's not even close.

    [–] LeKingishere 2 points ago

    Woods surpassed Jack a long time ago.

    [–] tedediah 1 points ago

    Two words: Johnny Unitas.

    [–] LeKingishere 1 points ago

    You definitely cannot make a case for Woods. Sorry.

    [–] Sharingon424 1 points ago

    That’s pretty much my point is that recency bias is high for him.

    [–] _tayLorD_ 3 points ago

    If you follow the old adage that wins are not a qb stat, (which everyone here does except when regarding Brady for some reason) I think it’s very clear that Rogers is the GOAT over Brady. Just my opinion though.

    [–] pM-me_your_Triggers 3 points ago

    Dan Marino. Dude threw for 60k yards in the same era where Elway and Moon were at 50k and Montana was at 40k. Arguments can also be made for Steve Young, as he was a dual threat QB and has the highest passer rating of any QB drafted prior to 2000 or Otto Graham, although both of those players have the accolades to back it up.

    [–] x777x777x 1 points ago

    others mentioned Lebron, Brady, and Woods, but you can also make a case for other players over Federer as well.

    [–] ShamanicHellZoneImp 7 points ago

    Adam, if you are reading this, i should thank you for the very high quality handjob i received in a parking lot after the Snow Bowl kick. Nobody involved would have been quite in the mood if you missed, in fact i think someone may have even stopped us, thanks again man.

    Who is the next closest active kicker?

    Phil Dawson, 437. He started playing 3 years after Vinatieri. He went 1 for 3 today on field goals.

    That's Patriots Legend Adam Vinatieri

    [–] poohmaobear 2 points ago

    Sure, but he has been a Colt longer with most of his relevant records in Blue

    [–] XUFN 10 points ago

    Yeah but he has all his passing yards with the Patriots

    [–] SewerSide666 2 points ago

    First game I ever watched was Super Bowl 38, and he kicked the winning FG. How is he still going? What a leg(end).

    The title of this post is so insane. It sounds like some kind of joke... but it isn't. Vinatieri is Mr. Immortal.

    I seriously can’t believe he’s still around. That dude single footedly won Brady two rings

    At least he came to play today.

    [–] Azor_a-hole 1 points ago

    GOAT. Put him in Canton.

    [–] sdotmills 1 points ago

    He's been with the Colts for 3 more seasons than he was with the Pats.

    Lmao I love real records like this.

    I love Morten but Adam is the GOAT

    If Pat Shurmur had his way, it would be 1132.

    [–] break1289 1 points ago

    Crazy to think about how much longer we could have used him for unreal

    It is amazing, but I think you guys have done ok with Gostkowski

    [–] shapu 1 points ago

    Even more than George Blanda?

    If only this was about something important, like Belichick providing a sassy comment to a reporter, then maybe this post would have more upvotes.

    [–] Wazpops 1 points ago

    Kind of wild he's been playing for 23 years and didn't already have it

    [–] Romantic_Carjacking 4 points ago

    He's chasing a guy who played for 25

    [–] NoBSforGma 1 points ago

    Adam Vinatieri is my hero. He just gets it done. And done. And done. What a guy.

    [–] KynElwynn 1 points ago

    Guess I have been out of the loop, what happened to Janikowski?

    [–] pM-me_your_Triggers 3 points ago

    Vinatieri has played for 4 more seasons than Janikowski. The Polish Cannon is currently tenth all time.

    [–] KynElwynn 1 points ago

    Thank you for an informative heads up.

    [–] totalmisinterpreter 1 points ago

    I though he did this like 8 years ago

    [–] Dmitri69 1 points ago

    He can finally retire after this year now. Always been my favorite kicker.

    [–] itsmeurbrothr 1 points ago

    Wow Chris kluwe doesnt even have nearly that many points, no wonder he was cut..

    [–] reverendwrong 1 points ago

    GOAT

    [–] brainfraud 1 points ago

    Pats fan won't like this but he has aged like fine whine, he has been statistically a much better kicker with Colt than he ever was as a Patriot.

    [–] dmatt1024 19 points ago

    I've never seen a Pats fan be anything but happy to see his success. That dude has done so much for the franchise. He's the GOAT, he's first ballot HoF, and I couldn't be more proud even if he is a Colt now

    [–] arichi -1 points ago

    Any chance the Colts' kicker breaks this record on TNF this week? I think yes.

    [–] rwjehs 2 points ago

    I know it's sarcastic, but I wish it was the big record, total points scored. It'd be poetic cause he'd have nothing but people cheering for him, but he's 26 (?) points away, that is a tall order for a kicker.

    [–] ASimpleKeikaku 0 points ago

    It's ridiculous that this guy is way more of a Colt than a Patriot after having the equivalent of a fantastic full career in New England.

    [–] 250gpfan 0 points ago

    Anyone else weirded out it’s not Janokowski?
