Sounds like Berger is cooked. Get it? Berger? Cooked?

He should have stayed off spacebook.

We're turning to a healthier game plan finally?

Trim a little fat off our suckage?

Coldcuts now over burgers.

Watching our saturated-sucking stats.

Why on earth is it so hard to find a guy to reliably punt a football? Punt a GD football, hold a snap... that's it. That's all they have to do. It's an actual career with a realistic probability of longterm financial security if not outright weatlh. Yet we haven't been able to field a decent punter since Mike Horan... a drought of almost 20 years.

It's a little too late with Berger, though.

I was of the mind that he should have just thrown the ball instead of punting it. Lord knows he would have gotten more yardage that way.

Hopefully he will punt well enough to get a shot for next year. Sometimes it takes these punters a year or two to develop. A few punters we have cut ended up making it elsewhere. I didn't think there was much of a difference between him and Kern in preseason and would not have been surprised if he made the final cut.

Maybe. I heard he had a rag arm......

And Colquit may have gotten off the sauce. I had read where he might have made it if he'd stop guzzling the booze.....

If I remember correctly, this guy was going kick for kick with Kern, but wasn't as quick to get the kick off. I do think he was much better at angling kicks though. He downed several inside the 20 in the last preseason game he played.

we could have taken a punt/pass/kick kid from the 9 year old and up category and been better off than Berger

glad Colquitt is returning

I have wondered the same also what happened to the coffin corner kick?

I hope they keep Berger as the holder. I do think he adds value there and offers insight to Prater.

yes and no he sucked at first but he did get way better his last two games . I like his kicking high and was the best we have ever had at getting the ball to die inside the 5 yard line..

Interesting. I wonder if this means we draft a P this year.

Great move though! He'll be with the club through the offseason and into training camp next year. He can also be a backup kicker in case something happens to Prater.

This sort of shoots down the whole "McD is too arrogant to admit making a mistake" argument, no?
