    Stanley's gross avg. is 41.3 while his net is 37.0. He has 13 kicked inside the 20 and 3 touchbacks. McBriar has 14 inside the 20 with 9 touchbacks. Moorman has 21 inside the 20 with 3 touchbacks. (the article was a couple weeks ago)

    I take no issue with Stanley as it relates to directional punting and punts inside the 20. Where I take issue is when you really need that one boomer, say a 50+ yarder, to help swing the field position game around, he comes up with a 37 yarder.

    STANDING OVATION for this post.

    It's juuuuuuuuuust like the Carr haters say, "Stats are deceiving."

    When we need an opponent pinned deep, late in the game, he hasn't been able to boom one deep. In fact, let me go on record and say that I firmly believe he began kicking harder after he fumbled the ball...he KNOWS that he's on thin ice. How else can you explain those big punts all of a sudden? The pucker factor went up a notch after he fumbled the ball and it cost us points.

    Stanley is a finesse punter.

    When we were penalized for the delay of game before a punt, the announcers said "Well, I don't understand this...Stanley doesn't need more room or anything..." And I giggled to myself and thought, "Oh yes he does. He's got too much leg! Back him up to our own 10!"

    We need a pitcher, not a belly itcher.
