I agree that punters have a big effect on a game.
But it just doesn't seem right that Welker is only making a million more per year than our PUNTER.....did I say P U N T E R ?!?!
If you assume our offense will be good enough this year that our punting unit might see the field 4 times per game......and each of those plays takes about 10-15 seconds of game clock......the punter is on the field for ONE MINUTE of game time.
Punters and kickers are the highest paid players PER AMOUNT OF TIME PLAYED of any player on the field......by a very long shot.
