    Adam Podlesh 3rd in NFL with just 2 touchbacks last season. Ranked 13th with 27 kicks inside 20. Can't just look at avg w punters

    Mesko/McBriar had 16 punts downed inside 20 last season. Podlesh had 27 with only two touchbacks.

    just putting a positive spin on a guy with a weak leg.
    i bet i wouldn't have any touchbacks if i were an nfl punter
    1) First ballot HOF, ROTY
    2) All Pro first year, first round talent that fell to us in second
    3) Starter for years to come, cant believe he fell
    4) Absolute steal of draft, 2nd round grade
    5) Back up at first then starter for 10 years
    6) Incredible depth and ST demon
    7) Amazing value, shoulda went 3 rounds earlier

    You would also have a negative net yardage number...

    I guess Brad Wing and Podlesh are going to battle it out. Probably will add a UDFA kid out of college too. Think they really want to improve the punting game and special teams?
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    SOP to bring in a veteran camp body more for our returners to get reps then a camp battle but it never hurts to give a little test to our starter. His highlight will be punting that sixth punt to AB at Latrobe while he is holding onto the previous 5 punts. Fans get a kick out of that show.
