Gimme a stud LB over a stud Punter anyday.

In fact, if you had to pick one position to have a bad player at, IT WOULD BE THE PUNTER.

Name a less important position on a football team.

The best punter in the entire NFL is Andy Lee. How come no one mentioned him going into our match-up last year? Was he the reason we lost? Did he even have an affect on the game at all? He wouldn't even be in the top 20 reasons we lost and he's hands down the best punter in the game today.

The only reason anyone even mentions punters is when their team burns a valuable draft pick on one.

If they are so valuable, hoe come only 1 or 2 get drafted every year? And how come its always in the 5th 6th or 7th round?

If they were such an awesome weapon there would at least be some drafted in the 1st 2nd or 3rd rounds.

I lose all respect for anyone's football knowledge the moment they even hint that a punter is more valuable than any other position on an NFL team.

So you don't think a punter that can regularly kick out of the endzone, forcing a team to go 80 yds for a TD has any value?

How about the guy who gave us an extra possession in the superbowl, I guess a stud LB could have done that too :rolleyes:

We did give up a draft pick for him when we had just four picks(I think).
To Payton that means better field position. To me it's better field position. To Danno it's a wasted pick. I see your point Danno. But I also see Paytons point as well. That's the great thing about the BNG. We don't have to agree on everything.:cool:
Who Dat Baby!

In a defensive battle, a game of 3 and outs, I'd rather have the punter that's going to net 10 more yards than his opponent. Sometimes it's the difference in the two punters that moves the ball. In a high octane offense like the Saints have, it's probably not as noticeable, but I'd still rather have that in my favor than not.

I'd rather have a stud LB and a mediocre punter than the other way around. Same goes for every other position on both sides of the ball.

Fullback and Long-snapper are debatable though. But there's a reason they aren't drafted very often or very high either.
