Default Chronic: Turks tight in good times as well as bad

Man, I love this guy. So glad he is our team and our starting punter.

From nothing to Pro Bowl

That these two brothers, both making good money, both playing for a storied NFL franchise, would spend Saturdays hawking hot dogs speaks volumes about their value system. Matt and Dan were born in a working-class section of Milwaukee, the youngest of the six boys Paula Turk raised alone by cleaning houses and working as a waitress.

"We didn't have much, but we didn't know it," Matt said.

He's a wonderful story on his own. He had exactly zero scholarship offers out of high school and was undrafted after a nice career at Division III Wisconsin-Whitewater.

He had tryouts with the Packers and Rams and played a season with the Racine Roughriders before catching on with the Redskins in 1995. He made the first of three straight Pro Bowls in 1996 and hasn't had trouble finding work since. In other words, the Texans got lucky last summer when the Rams sent Turk packing.

I was glad he made the team. His kicks might not have been all that much further than Chad's, but my God, that hang time is worth an additional 5 yards.
