Vinatieri in 1996:

I don't remember the condition of the field in old Foxboro Stadium in 1996, and I don't remember if Vinatieri had to kick some place like Gostkowski did today. Nor do I remember if there was snow in any of Vinatieri's 1996 games. This will take some research.

More on this later ...
