I still just don't get it; this team seems unable to find a field a punter who isn't bottom of the barrel. Even when they used a 4th-round pick on one (short of Ray Guy, that is way too high a pick for a punter) they still couldn't find any long term success at finding a consistent punter. It is crazy to conceive, that a position usually filled by undrafted free agents, or at most, signing a free agent, that this team just can't find even an average punter. And a lot of this game comes down to field position; when you have punters with pop gun legs, it's just another obstacle you have to overcome to win.
McBriar was 31st in the NFL in net yards. 31st. For a team who hangs its hat on defense and not letting the other guys score, this is pathetic. How can they not find a better punter than 35 yards average. St. Louis' punter average 44.2....almost a 10 yards per punt difference. With both teams usually punting several times a game, you could be talking a net loss of 50 yards a game with our punter vs. our opponents.
If we want to start posting winning records again, we might want to look to improve our punter.
