m. mariscal is outpunting mitch berger in training camp.....we've already signed mitch to a 5 yr we take the lost and go with the rookie? i say if the kid has it they may.....although punters are'nt too hard to come by, a good one can get you out of tight spots.....a good young one and you're set for yrs.......what is the opinion? smitty

I\'m curious. Is this kid out-punting Berger - when there\'s a defense on the field?

Hasn\'t there been a discussion about relieving John Carney of his kick-off duties to save his leg? If Mariscal has such a great leg maybe he could do that and leave in Berger as the punter. He is a proven veteran. If he is 3 or 4 yards shorter on a kick than Mariscal I\'ll still go with him if he can once again put 35+% of his punts inside the 20.

Three roster spots for kickers? Not on a 53 man roster, no way.

Isn\'t the game called FOOTBALL?

Yes the game is called football , but the reduced roster makes every spot on a team a premium. A punter and a FG Kicker is all most teams are willing to carry, if one of them can\'t handle kickoffs they will find one who can.Last year only 4 teams, the Bengals, Ravens, Raiders and Niners carried 3 kickers on there 53 man roster, two more used a extra kicker because of injuries but did\'nt carry three at once. Haslett does\'nt seem to care much about kickers, I seriously doubt you\'ll ever see more than two on one of his teams.
