You can tack on "he was horrible" and "it will be addressed". Definately, not a good day to be Paul Ernster.

Ben talked about how bad the wind was and that some of his passes really did some weird things. So maybe that had something to do with it.

Bungles punter averaged 35.5. While that seems miles better than Ernster's 28.4, both numbers are just dreadful. But no doubt, Ernster should be dealt with.

A couple of us at the game were trying to think of available punters and we came up with Scott Player and Josh Miller. Anybody else out there?

dont forget Mitch Berger. Anyone hear news of when he could be back in action? His two pulled hamstrings ought to be right after another week or two Id imagine. He was adequate.

Funny how we struggle to be adequate in all the phases of our special teams. Even the good punt coverage can be attributed to poor punts.

This is true, we need to look at the bright side of this. The punts only go 28 yards but there is NO return! :HeadBanger

Tomlin should be ashamed of himself. This quote is a insult to snuff.

James Harrison should Force Choke Earnster until his head comes off.
