New Orleans Saints top 25 countdown: Thomas Morstead, No. 18

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Andy Lee in San Francisco puts up Morestead-type numbers, and that gave our offense fits in the playoffs. Even with a miracle-worker like Drew at the wheel I don't like seeing him start inside the 20. It made an impact ...

I'd have to go with the five turnovers as having the real impact on that game.

Andy Lee had minimal affect on our ability to move the ball. San Fran's skullcrushing defense is the reason we struggled to move the ball, and coughed it up so frequently.

I'll take Donte Whitner, Aldon Smith, or Patrick Willis over any punter that ever played the game.

I guess you would want a stud LB over a stud Punter/Kickoff Specialist. You rarely see a punt of a kickoff change the game. Still, it is an important position since both punts and kickoffs do get returned.

I could have kicked that onsides kick.

The call was the reason that worked, and of course Hank Basket letting it bounce off his head helped a lot too.

OK then, would you believe...

ANY NFL kicker could have kicked that onsides kick.

ANY retired NFL kicker could have kicked that onsides kick.

ANY College kicker could have kicked that onsides kick.

3/4 of the players on the team could have kicked that onsides kick.

Half the Saintsations could have kicked that onsides kick.

I'll give you that one, but yet I've seen numerous onsides kicks kicked out of bounds or too short and not make the ten yards...

LOL..this is funny. It is best to agree to disagree..Danno has very strong opinions when it comes to kickers/punters. Nothing you can say will change his mind.

I think More-stud is a huge weapon for us. Gonna side against Danno on this one.
