I know nothing about Maynard.
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.
Wonder why.......cuz he's a Punter, maybe? lol
he was a beatnic on Dobie Gillis before becoming lost at sea with the professor and the captain and......
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.
Maybe the dude needs a different environment
Long way to go before the season. I doubt he'll be the only one we look at in camp.
Looks like we just signed him to a one year deal
Mods, please change the thread title.
It looks like this time last year he had major surgey, hopefully that was the reason his numbers were down. And he is now fully recovered.
damn, I didn't know he was 37 time flies
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.
you and I are the only folks old enough to get that joke.
LOL - I got it too. Remember both shows.
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
very interesting read, but pls look up the udfa we got, brett hartmann. theres a video on youtube, just search his name, where hes just kicking and punting over n over at a camp. kid is wicked man.
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.
