While I'd want to see more than one outing to think he's better than one of the best punters ever in the NFL, it made me wonder if we might have an actual battle at that position. I haven't been paying attention to this in the TC updates: is this actually a competition?
*Which brings me to another thing - that had to be about the worst broadcast I've ever seen. Besides the horrendous video problems and the occasional sound problems, they made mistakes identifying players (a big deal in preseason, since I don't recognize players by number yet) and spent a long time talking to the Texans' president about clear plastic bags while the Texans are putting together a nice drive (I still don't know who made some of those plays).
what are you smoking....lechtler the punter...shapiro is trying out for other teams......man...the lack of intelligence in here cracks me up.....
