No sarcasm. Pittman is good, but he is a wasted roster spot. If he could contribute anywhere else, he would be ok. But thats not the case.

IIRC Pittman has one year left on his contract and we will be having some fierce competition at many positions. I would rather Dreesen beat out Pittman than carry one less OL, CB or RB this year.

This pains me as I have been a fan of Pittman's since day one and could see him easily being inducted into the Long Snapper's Hall of Fame on the first ballot.

Some things are best left alone.........Pittman is one of those things. I came across this very comprehensive and interesting older article in USA TODAY, which is worth reading in its entirety. It puts the LS value into true perspective.:

Quote:
Even if long snappers can play other positions, many coaches won't risk having them injured.

Quote:
Then there is Houston's Pittman. "Most snappers have an amazing story. ... His may take the cake," says Gold, his agent.

After two seasons as a tight end/snapper at Walla Walla (Wash.) Community College, Pittman snapped as a 1997 walk-on at the University of Washington but left because he got no scholarship. In two semipro seasons with the Puget Sound (Wash.) Jets, he did odd jobs. "You name it," he says. "Bouncing, personal training, security work."

One semipro season, he broke his hand and injured a knee and did "a lot of painting and yard work."

In March 2003, he paid his way to a special teams scouting combine in Reno. He landed a tryout with the Cleveland Browns and didn't make the last cut, but he got another shot with Houston a week before its inaugural 2003 season.

"On Friday, it was decision time," Pittman says. "They decided to go with me."

Pittman belongs here. Dreessen as depth for the LS position just makes me sleep better at night.

Dreessen is a baller. Good hands, good blocker, ideal H-back. He's a really versatile player. Definitely an urgrade over Putzier.

He was a 6th round pick of the Jets in 2005.
