In a season in which the Saints have struggled for consistency, Morstead has not. Each week he excels in one way or another. He averaged 51 yards on four punts against Cleveland and dropped three kicks inside the 20-yard line against Pittsburgh.
Perhaps the only person not satisfied with his performance is Morstead, who said he hasn't achieved the net yardage he wants or limited opponents return chances as often as desired. Even there, the team and its punter seem at odds: Morstead said he has failed to hit his goal of at least 38 net yards per kick, but the Saints statistical packet this week puts him at 38.7.
Still, after a rookie season in which he averaged 36.9 net and 44.7 yards overall, Morstead has improved across the board. Special teams coordinator Greg McMahon said the Saints knew what they had and watched the 2010 season begin with trepidation.
