    IIRC, he was better at getting the ball inside the 20 than Turk last year BUT he was 32 in the league for average distance. Weaker leg than Turk, I believe.

    Maybe he is the best veteran punter available? Seems like he is really in decline, has been effective for Bears last 10 years before that drafted by Giants 3rd rd. 1997.

    Maybe, put I like punters and punting in general. It comes from playing rugby as an underclassmen in high school. I was taught how to kick a rugby ball be a mad Englishman.

    Long way to go before the season. I doubt he'll be the only one we look at in camp.

    This Football Outsiders writer is not impressed:

    Ya know, I just don't give a rip - I'm happy to see Turk gone, and I honestly think this is one instance where if our UDFA outperforms him in Training camp and pre-season, he could actually win the job.

    Maybe they didn't see Turks 7 yard punts at inopportune times. He was awful. He couldn't get the ball downfield until he was kicking from a shorter field. Then he boomed it out of the endzone

    If the utube sensation guy wins a spot then more power to him. I just want to make sure he earns the spot against a legit vet.

    I am watching the astros night after night get destroyed. And the team is full of guys with upside that are not proven, and typically not ready for the big show. When football season starts I am ready to watch a real contender perform, and I really only want the young rookie if he has an amazing preseason.
