The pimp wins AFC Special Teams Player of the Week

Yep, shoulda re-signed me New England

Yep, I guess all those New England fans were right. Adam Vinatieri is over the hill. He's injured. He can't kick-off well anymore, can't kick long field goals. There simply must be something wrong with him to justify Patriots GM Scott Pioli letting him slip to the Colts.

Oh those silly, whacky Patriots fans! They were wrong, again. The pimp masta his-self won AFC Special Teams Player of the Week:

Signed in the off-season as a highly-valued free agent, Vinatieri brought the Colts immediate dividends in a 26-21 road victory against the New York Giants. Playing his first game in an Indianapolis uniform, Vinatieri was a perfect 4 for 4 in field goal attempts from 26, 32, 48 and 32 yards. The former NFL Europe League standout's fourth field goal with 1:12 remaining in regulation significantly boosted the Colts' lead from two points to five for the team's margin of victory.

This marks the ninth-career Player of the Week honor for the 11-year veteran from South Dakota State.

Thanks for the kicker New England. We love him here.
