Default Upgrade at Punter?

I know I'll probably get flamed by PD for saying this, but do you think its time to upgrade Stanley? He's been very consistent for us, but here's a look at his stats thus far:

Avg Yards - 43.1 - #25
% in 20 - 29.4 - #20
Net - 39.6 - #16

On a team where field position is so important, having a punter with a little more power might be a good thing. Stanley has the accuracy, but lacks the power.

Here are his 2005 stats:
Avg Yards - 38.8 - #31
% in 20 - 37% - #6
Net - 36.0 - #36
I can understand the low yardage given how many were in the 20


PS: Yes I realize we have about 100 more pressing holes on this tema, but I'm just bringing this up for conversation...

I've never really liked Stanley's boot ... during camp they brought some kid in (don't remember his name) who was outdistancing Stanley by about 10 yards per with good hang time as well ... he probably wasn't as accurate but even still, not sure why he didn't end up making the cut, other than that I've heard Marciano is really defensive of both Brown and Stanley. He's relatively accurate but I think we could do better.

As you say however, he's at least plenty functional.

There are guys who can punt farther, but in the NFL hang time is much more important. Yesterday, Wes Welker had to fair catch several times which prevents any runback. And he is one of the better punt return guys in the NFL. And those fair catches were huge regarding field position. Stanley rarely shanks a punt either so until he screws up consistently, I would rather go with him.

I say no too. Special Teams as a whole are the least of our concerns.

Actually, I've 'knocked' Stanley in the past for his distance issues, but he has shown 'marked' improvement in this area this year--given his 'hang time' and accuracy dropping punts inside the 20, Stanley, IMO, is not a problem.

Heck, even Brown is getting his KO's deeper...maybe improving his accuracy is next, but it's obvious someone 'talked' to both of them...

Why is he even up for discussion today? No one else to desecrate? Geez!
Y'all are much better at disecting Carr, Williams, Bush and the waterboy. Stick with what you are good at and leave poor Chad alone.

Defer to Powerful Dragon's av if in doubt.

Does anyone remember the fake field goal either last year or the year before where Stanley took it up the middle and juked the Hell out of one of the Jaguars' linebackers and got us the first down?

Greatest play that I have ever seen. Stanley is God.
