    Who was that kicker we had a while back?..... He was kind of a weight room warrior. Really muscular for a kicker. Stayed for a while and then went somewhere else for a while. Don;t remember if he was traded or released, but I remember he was a pretty high pick for a kicker and kind of had a big mouth.

    That was who I was thinking of. We are on the same mental wavelength, and it's scaring the hell out of me JJ

    I suggest getting off whatever meds your on and see a DR asap. Todd was a weight room warrior, but not like this guy, he was still built like a kicker, and acted like one. O'Donnell is built like a LB'r, and from what I've read he tackles like one.

    Well, to be fair, he was more than a weight room warrior. He set the NCAA record for punting average and was the highest rated punting prospect ever in terms of NFL potential. For whatever reason, despite the Bears wasting a second round pick on him, he sucked while he was here. Then he went to Carolina and led the NFL in punting and made a bunch of pro bowls. It was a weird situation. Probably Wanny's fault somehow. lol.

    OK Benjamin, here is why Emery just drafted the 2014 version of Ray Guy. He can do it all.
    Check out the link.

    Now that was cool to watch, that one punt was fuckin' niiice. Put opposing offense back up against the wall, get a turnover or safety and give this explosive offense a short field. That's the thing about having a great punter, if he can pin offenses deep he's helping your offense and defense. It's still a game of inches and if the defense is always going against an offense who has a long field they're going to look better. When you start with great field position on offense you're going to look better, it only takes one or two solid plays and you're in field goal range. I'm a big fan of the pick and hope this guy can become a staple of our special teams, the punting version of Robbie Gould.

    Tillman can teach our punter how to perfect the Peanut Punch, you can tell he's sloppy at it.

    He may be sloppy but he got the job done. When was the last time anyone saw a punter even attempt to this kind of thing ?
    Most are trying to avoid any contact. This guy is simply a beast.

    Why? He obviously had talent (best college punter EVER and a three time pro bowler after he left Chicago). For whatever reason he sucked here though. Sounds more like coaching.

    or JJ, I think you've got 16 and have to make your choice w/the dealer showing an ace.

    Punters don't win games but they can definitely lose them for you.

    I like the pick. A lot.
