I am just throwing this out there..... Doing a fly by.

Imagine our opponents field position (considering our special teams tackling) if we had a one pick punter.

Re: Garrett Hartley

The potential for catastrophe and loss of a game in one play is greater for the skills performed by the specialists (i.e. Place Kicker, Punter, Long Snapper) than any other position from scrimmage...

They may not win games - but, they certainly can lose them...

And for that argument, they are extremely important to get right...

And as Coach Payton falls from the Coach Parcells Coaching Tree, I'm amazed we struggle in special teams as Coach Parcells truly made special teams discipline a team priority...

How many are drafted in the 1st 5 rounds?

I'll take a stud LB or DT over a LS anyday.

Fartley? Really?

Oh-fer 2. Missed from 47 yds and 38 yds. In a freakin' dome at home.

This better not be a sign of things to come from this notorious head case.

He'll cost us an important game soon, workout another kicker, one that can be more reliable
