Default Dear Chris Kluwe...

Dear Chris Kluwe: When We Want The Punter’s Opinion, We’ll Ask For It (We Won’t)
Nate Jackson —Chris Kluwe should know better.

Earlier this week, Kluwe, the Minnesota Vikings punter, called Peyton Manning and Drew Brees greedy douchebags on his Twitter feed — validating, from a source who wears an NFL uniform, the media's assertion that the lockout is all about greedy players. But by relying on gossipy football media outlets for facts about CBA negotiations, then taking to Twitter to blast some of the league's most respected names, Chris Kluwe made a mistake that ensures he'll be respected even less than he already is, if that's possible.
Punters are at the absolute bottom of the totem pole on an NFL roster, the very last man. If the team plane crashed on a deserted island, he'd be dinner as soon as the food ran out. Most of them know this and understand that it's in their best interest to keep quiet...

Okaaaay. Granted, it's pretty much always appropriate to make fun of the punter, but really. . . who's Nasty Nate to talk? The guy that covers punts and kicks isn't exactly higher on the totem than the dude that kicks 'em. At least the punter is technically a starter. Oh yea, and Kluwe still has a job in the NFL. Without bothering to look it up, I can guarantee he's making half a million or more this year. Kinda doubt Nasty Nate brings in that kind of scratch for his blogs and articles.

Sorry Nate, the lowest guy on the NFL totem pole isn't the punter. Its the guy who never steps on the field come Sunday.

But what with how long its been since you were in the league I can see why you'd have forgotten that.

nate is very, very bitter. what a totally pathetic work by him. beyond unreal how skewed these guys perceptions are.

nate jackson:
if you have leverage against the league (they dont) then you should use it, **** the fans and the rest of the NFL players waiting to get the year started! this is about the 1 or 2 guys who have sacrificed approximately 2 full hours of their time on the CBA negotiations and lawsuits. they DESERVE this. and starting punters are the butt of many jokes, because one happened to say what most of america was thinking, yea!

Dear Nate,

Remember the glory days of your life... spent covering punts between IR stints? Those were the days.

Your pal,

CK

Kluwe spent more time on the field in one game than Jackson did in his career....

True.

I'm too lazy to read his article, but quite frankly the OP runs contrary to the sarcasm dripping from his twitter comment.

I guess I'm in a "Who cares?" mode.

Awwwwww man, I like JackNasty but Kluwe's response was great. I agree with aspects of both their arguments though...

Best part of that was this...

You, more than anyone else, should know what goes on during special teams, and yet your description of a special teams practice, while venomously hilarious, is quite inaccurate (or maybe you guys had a really crappy punter and you're spot on, in which case, my condolences)

Yeah we did have crappy punters lol
