He isn't perfect.
He is the most consistent performer on our inconsistent team.
IMO

We consistently get bailed out of bad field position and get field position that the D doesn't have to defend because of our punter. My MVP for This game.
This is so true.....he is always the last out there signing autographs. He's got one heck of a leg. Let's not forget he played rugby and in rugby kicking is as huge a part of the game as tackling.

Now wait a minute....Danno wasn't against drafting TM he just didn't want to give up that many picks when we already had limited picks. He had a valid point however, the pick has turned out to be another incredible asset.

Field position has been BIG all season and Morstead has been great.
Since his arrival, he has been clutch; long and accurate.
Take away some of the lapses in concentration, many more kicks could have been downed inside the 10.
Example: Guy calls for a fair catch...he's dead meat. I've seen guys standing around sucking their thumb
and let the ball bounce on the 8 and go into the endzone.
He is a great asset to this team. I hope he is around and playing at a high level for a long time.

Nah. Not trying to call Danno out. His logic is usually better thought through than mine. I just come down opposite his view on drafting kickers. It's all good.

Ahh somebody actually gets it.

And I love the "Legatron" name. I typically despise them, but THAT is a cool nickname.
