    Steelers claim Punter Paul Ernster off waivers

    He was released by the Lions today and picked up by the Steelers.

    In three games with the Broncos in 2006. He averaged 44.6 yards on 17 punts with 4 inside the twenty.

    I think he was the punter the Browns claimed off waivers before week 1 smackdown of them last year. He sucked in that game IIRC. How the hell does a punter tear an ACL in camp????? Is it just me or does this season have a bad feel to it? I hate this.

    I think he's the guy who fumbled the snap on the punt where the browns had about
    3 penalties. This is not good.

    Yeah he played one game with the Browns and one with the Broncos in 2007. He averaged around 36 yards a punt in both games, not good.

    I think we should bring in Scott Player. He's a veteran and a free agent. In three games last year he averaged around 45 yards a punt, certainly better than Ernster. Plus did I mention he has a crazy mustache and a one bar facemask?

    Maybe some sort of hyperextention/tear during the actual kick I guess... But it does have a bit of "bad start" feeling.... Sup, Troy, Casey, Kemo....

    Re: Steelers claim Punter Paul Ernster off waivers

    I thought Ernster was more of a kickoff specialist than a full-time punter.


    To JAX 1.22 (780 pts)
    To PIT 2.36 (540 pts) + 3.67 (255 pts) = 795 pts

    2.36 OLB Eli Harold 6'3" 247 Virginia
    2.56 TE Clive Walford 6'4" 251 Miami
    3.67 CB Alex Carter 6'0" 196 Stanford
    3.87 CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu 5'9" 192 Oregon
    4.121 OT Donovan Smith 6'6" 338 Penn St
    5.160 FS Adrian Amos 6'0" 218 Penn St
    6.199 WR Stefon Diggs 6'0" 195 Maryland
    6.212 OLB Kyle Emanuel 6'3" 255 North Dakota St
    7.239 RB John Crockett 6'0" 217 North Dakota St

    plus, did you notice he DOESN'T have a crazy mustache and he uses the full facemask

    I know! He's completely useless.

    Wonderful! Just what the special teams need, a non-talented, 10 yard net averaging retread.

    Why does this surprise you? We are shopping in the bargain bin again what else is new in Steeler land. I guess field position doesn't matter when you have an aging defensive line .
