Not sure of the history, but he was with the team at some point last year:

I like his name, and that's probably about it.

PRO: Strong-legged young punter who joined the Texans as a free agent in March…has spent time with Philadelphia, Minnesota and San Francisco over the past three years, but has not seen any action…last punted for the Dallas Cowboys in 2002, when he averaged 40.6 yards on 65 punts in nine games…originally signed with the Cowboys as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2002.



Looks like kffl.com has the position wrong. Lost in the stuffle of last season was the fact that Stanley was horrible last year. Much need competition for him although Flip is probably a longshot.

No, the Texans got his profile up quickly.

He is a punter.

I had my hopes up he was actually a PK.

I thought stanley was pretty good. This new guy's probably just a fresh leg for TC, so Stanley doesn't wear out his leg or anything.

Hmmm...quick it was considering that I saw that profile two days ago.

]']I second this emotion! Now lets party :redtowel:

I officially hijack this thread into a VY/Mario/Bush thread! So who will make a better kicker? I say VY!

I'm not sure. Young has longer legs, but is he smart enough to punt footballs? :confused:

Have you not heard about Mario's combine? There is no doubt Super Mario wouldnt beath down either Reggie or VY, although Reggie could steal the ball with his super quickness, while VY can use his telepathic powers to make Mario miss by about 20 yards, Kris Brown style...

i think Matt Linart would be the best kicker. those braces will add mass to his leg giving the ball more boom.

I had this guy on Madden. I made him the absolute best punter in the game and released Stanley. I just love the name.

Matt Leinhart would like to be a WR. He has to use those ballroom dancing skills for the touchdown celebrations.

The annoucement of his signing was slow...he was not with the team last year...Actually read the profile.

What was he rated to begin with though? Its not hard to make a PK good in madden, but it does give an idea of how good he is.

I can't remember. I think he was one of the worst though.

His only year where he actually got to punt was in 2002 with the Cowboys.

65 punts
2640 yards
40.6 avg
