Wow Ink, you got it first. Nice job.

So, what do we think? Is this a huge upgrade, or a stop-gap maneuver until we can solidify the position further?

Wow. McDaniels gives players a very small margin of error (see Hillis). Can't really complain with the results.

Go Buffs!

Judging by Mitch's history, he intends to play for every team in the league.

Not a big surprise, hopefully Berger can be an improvement.

Kern more or less sucked. His punts from deep inside our half were too low and returnable, and his punts from around midfield ended up as touchbacks far too often.

The Broncos have signed NFL veteran and former University of Colorado punter Mitch Berger, who replaces Brett Kern.
The Broncos have yet to formally announce the move, but Berger’s name plate is above the locker that until recently belonged to Kern.
It appears the Broncos were unhappy with Kern’s tendency to boot long, but low-trajectory punts that were ideal for returning. San Diego’s Darren Sproles returned a punt for a touchdown last Monday night.

good, lets keep getting better.

On a side note, i was completely off when we first heard rumors about this and i thought it might be prater on the hot seat.


Still would like to see prater boot the ball out of the endzone, or atleast into it.

This can only mean that ST coach has asked Kern to punt ball to a spot and he fails. He hasn't been that bad really so a move can only mean that he isn't punting the ball in the areas the coverage set up for. Or not as high as they would like etc etc.

Risky move this far into season.
