Mostead must be a pro bowler
 
The New Orleans Saints have the number one offense in the NFL throughout almost every statistical category.

But on the rare occasion in which Drew Brees and his offense fail to convert a first-down, Thomas Morstead and his undeniable punting skills must be called upon.

“The Leg” as to which most of his teammates refer him, is not presented with a lot of opportunities throughout the course of game based on Drew Brees ability to convert on 3rd downs so easily.

But when the alum from Southern Methodist University is needed, he never ceases to dissapoint.

Morstead has rendered an astonishing 43.7 net yard average for punts this year. That’s good for second in the entire NFL, let alone the NFC.

On average, his punts are close to the 50-yard mark. That’s giving the New Orleans Saints defense a whole half-field to defend the end zone, just by Morsteads’ leg alone.

In my opinion, I consider Morstead the player that Saints fans can trust the most on either offense or special teams, excluding Brees of course.

Morestead should definitely be a pro bowler. Could not agree more.

Moresteads deserves the pro bowl, he's not just a punter, he's one of the best kickoff guys, let's recap

2009 NFCCG - stopped Percy harvin from returning a kick all game, harvin was dangerous that season

2009 Super Bowl - never attempted an onsides kick in game before, automatic

2011 - week 2 - stopped Devin hester from returning all kicks and punts, the one punt that Hester did return he fumbled whilst running backwards
