The case for making Stephen Gostkowski a lifelong New England Patriot

While kickers rarely get the glory or spotlight on the NFL field, their scoring presence is undeniable. Consistency on special teams can make or break teams, and the Patriots have benefited from two exceptional place kickers during the last 14 years. Other specialists are already in place; the Patriots found a gem in Ryan Allen last year, and substituting Zoltan Mesko for the rookie...

Could Stephen Gostkowski be a surprise cap casualty?

Bob Breidenbach/ Providence JournalWhile many Patriots fans enter this offseason salivating over some of the names available in free agency and the draft, the reality is that the Pats have some business to take care of in-house first. With several important players (Aqib Talib, Julian Edelman, LeGarrette Blount) set to hit free agency and little cap room ($3.9 million according to...

NFL kickers speak out against eliminating extra point

Roger Goodell's recent proposal to eliminate the extra point conjured up negative reactions in a pair of Pro Bowl kickers -- the Ravens' Justin Tucker and Patriots' Stephen Gostkowski. Simply put, they aren't fans of change. "For what it's worth, I like the extra point," Tucker said Thursday, via "I like doing my job and I think it'...

Biggest surprise of the 2013 season: Stephen Gostkowski

I admit from the outset on this, in the pre-season, when coach Bill Belichick was having a “tryout” at punter between the incumbent Zoltan Mesko and rookie Ryan Allen, I shook my head and wondered to myself, “Why not Stephen Gostkowski?” Last year, Gostkowski’s field goal percentage was among the lowest of his career at just 82.9%, even though he had his second highest...

PHOTO: Bored kickers play Rock, Paper, Scissors at Pro Bowl Draft

Somehow, the Pro Bowl Draft seemed even longer than the annual three-day NFL Draft. The three-hour event crawled by at a snail’s pace, since Pro Football Hall of Fame captains Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice were forced to spend a full two minutes (which was usually actually three minutes after their long explanations for each pick) to select a player. At the end of the night...

Stephen Gostowski's Value to Patriots Far Greater Than Embarrassment of Missed Kick

Stephen Gostkowski lined up for a 57-yard field goal during warm ups on Sunday afternoon and he sent the ball sailing right on through the uprights. With a career long of just 53 yards, which he tied on Sunday, Gostkowski was expectedly ecstatic. About four hours later and 15 yards closer, the ever reliable Gostkowski was face down on the turf at Gillette Stadium filled with very...

Patriots K Stephen Gostkowski looks back on his game-saving “oh crap moment” … and links!

The way he is pictured here is usually how we see Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski. Ya know, kicking. But he was in a little bit of a different light yesterday in the 27-24 win over the Dolphins. In fact, Gostkowski may have saved the game. Down 17-3 in the third quarter — before anyone knew a comeback was coming — Gostkowski kicked off to Dolphins returner Clyde Gates. The...
