Punter

Postby YDUHT » Wed Jul 30, 2008 5:03 pm

If we need a punter bring back Chris Gardocki.

Is he on a team????

I thought he did a good job for us when he played.

No, he is not on a team. He now lives in Hilton Head, SC. I've seen him around here a couple times at golf tounaments and other events. He used to frequent a restuarant my wife was managing. I never got a chance to talk to him though, but I know he is not with any team this season.

You know, Chris Gardocki has never had a blocked punt in his career! :celebrate:

Sorry, couldn't resist.

damn people Gordocki sucked at the tail end of his career...how many punters in that age group...'n the WORLD (we have a Brit I believe on the team)...San Diego had an Austrailian football player puntin' for 'em...remember...(believe Woodson put a cleat 'n his face on hurdle on a kick return {remember that play})...There's no punters with dreams???...hell I have a guy who's all fluff 'n' no stuff 'n' the world's buyin' his snake oil to 'come prez...there's got to be somebody with a dream...Do the Steelers need to put up an Opening sign...does this generation have no balls that someone this age that is a punter can't step up...or do we have to carass them 'cause they were born without balls....OPPORTUNITY...if this is what a young generation brings when the chips are down....screw 'im

seriously folks....does it really matter?

Mark my words, we could sign any punter off any trash heap or hanging off any waiver wire, and our w/l record wont be any different.

Sad to say it, but this year will prove once and for all times, that drafting a punter in rd 4 is a incredibly stupid decision.

So Miller never effed us in a late game with a shit kick? And shit kick never caused the defense to be put in bad situation? and bad situation never led to a loss?

Me no so sure.

Didn't Kordell punt for the Ravens one game? I bet he'd love to get back to the old Black and Gold...

Looks like we are still shoping for a punter.

Punter Scott Player, 38, worked out for the Steelers Wednesday in Latrobe. He has been with five teams since 1996. New England cut him in June. ...

Roethlisberger punted twice before. Why don't we just use him as punter and save some space :no:

To dismiss the importance of a solid punter is ridiculous. The ability to influence field position with long and/or accurate situational punting leads to points or at least more opportunities to score. It's also the D's best set-up play. Equally important is the ability to cover those punts. Sepulveda was not the second coming of Ray Guy last year, still he punted better than Gardocki and he has a strong upside. I'm hoping for a steady replacement and better coverage to compensate.

:yes:

I couldn't agree more. While I would not say the punter is as important a position as many others, it is still a very key part of the game. Hopefully, we at least find a decent temporary replacement that does not screw it up too often.
