Patriots | Kicker duel will continue

Sun, 13 Aug 2006 19:38:28 -0700

The Associated Press reports neither New England Patriots PK Martin Gramatica nor rookie PK Stephen Gostkowski distanced themselves from the other in the Patriots' 26-23 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Friday night, Aug. 11. The kickers rotated in and out, with Gostkowski delivering the opening kickoff and Gramatica getting the call for a field goal with 2:40 left in the game and the Patriots trailing 23-20. "I thought they both did a pretty good job," head coach Bill Belichick said in a conference call Saturday, Aug. 11. Conditions were ideal in the Georgia Dome for both kickers and neither faltered. Belichick said he expects a winner to emerge when the Patriots play in outdoor stadiums and non-ideal conditions for the remainder of their preseason schedule. "The more competition you see, the more opportunities they have, the more clearer it becomes," Belichick said.

"Fifty practices. Four games. Some situational stuff inside the stadium," Belichick said. "That's a lot of plays, at any position, and we'll know a lot more then than we do now. To try to make a judgment on one practice, one kick, two days, you just run a much higher percentage that you're going to be wrong."

"I told him, 'I feel bad that you're here with me; you need to be on TV on Sundays winning football games,' " said Jason Biles, a physical therapist who worked with Gramatica at the Bollettieri Sports Medicine Center at IMG Academies in Bradenton, Fla. "He was kicking 50-plus-yard field goals with me, over and over, and not many people can do that. He has that strength back now, and it's amazing ... great focus, great intensity in his workouts, and he was determined to get back to kicking as quickly as possible. He's been ready for some time."
