To make the eeyores of this board happy: I have firm evidence that, for the few punts he didn’t have blocked he averaged 10 yards per punt. Each was squibbed on the ground so no hang time. Good news was all were returned for TDS.
Good God, a bit negative about the #1 punter in the country, huh?


See Greeniebacker's post above, smart guy.

I truly hope this guy is as good as advertised. He seems to be. May we get ten more five* players all over the lineup. Hell, I hope this guy can play a great QB--can't hurt. But hope hope is not coaching or a strategy...

If he's a decent QB, that fake punt play we ran with Glen C could be a staple to our offense :lol: Our QBs know how to pooch kick, no reason the punter can't be a passer :-D

Could be wrong but I have no problem giving schollies to kickers even if it's 3 or 4 to get it right. Over the years we have lost a bunch of games because of it. The way I see it you have 85 spots so there should be a lot of room after the two deep chart of 44. This even gives you room for a few misses.

[quote="Rotorooter"]Not to be a Negative Nellie, but from his camp films, it looks to me like he takes an extra step--scouts don't like that in a punter. Easier to block. Could be that he is more relaxed in his films. Would like to see game film. Also, there's more to a punter than just booming kicks--can he directionally kick the ball, can he punt them inside the 20/10 and so on...

Phone rings, Ryan picks it up and a raspy voice says

It's an expanded more detailed version of my first post.
