    Dump him. He's overpaid and overrated. Someone call Sauerbrun. At least he could boot it further than those 35yds Podlesh was.

    I have never been able to get on board with Podlesh, it seemed like he was always getting the benefit of a good Cover unit. When we are backed up, Podlesh is simply not capable of Booming one 60 yards.

    I always thought that Podlesh was ranked pretty high with punts inside the 20.

    The ST as a whole has been an utter failure, not just Adam. Now we know why DeCamillis got his pink slip. Having said that, yes, Podlesh is a guy we need an upgrade from. You can't continually lose the battle in punt coverage right off your guy's foot.
