  • The draft class is much stronger at punter than it is at kicker, that's for sure.

  • Drafting a punter? :34853_doh:


    If we do this, I’ll be convinced that the front office has lost their minds.

  • If we need the 2M to sign a more important player, I'm all for cutting Ryan.

    He wasn't just mediocre last year, he was downright terrible. No reason to continue to pay him like a top 10 punter if he's not going to punt like it.

    As much as Ryan is a fan fave I agree with this. If we're cutting declining vets to save dollars a punter should be an easy cut

    I don't usually but kept an eye on it this year given the obvious need at kicker and potential need at punter :)

  • I think people are just looking at punts based on how far they travel

    Ryan had a couple last year that clearly stated that he can punt as far or further than anybody in this league

    His mostly short punts were in my OPINION coaching decisions. He is not allowed to outpunt the coverage team especially when we weren't sure how good they would be......

  • When you have a offense that isn't doing well and a defense in transition a good punter can mask a lot of problems.

  • Keep him. He wasn't nearly as bad as some suggest.

    He was playing with mediocre support as much as RW was.

    He has another season maybe two left in the tank.

  • Like any other decision it depends on the alternative. There's no rush to cut him, but I'll bet we add to the competition at both P and K either via the draft or more likely UDFA. Then we see how things play out in Training Camp and the coaching staff can decide if Ryan is worth the price difference over alternative. Who's to say that a punter we brought in couldn't win the job straight up?

    Raw length doesn't matter that much without good hang time. We ranked #30 in net punt average. Definitely some of that is on the coverage, but plenty of blame falls on Ryan.

    1) I will continue to believe that Ryan is told to keep the punts shorter

    2) he had the 17th average length despite being tied for second longest punt if he year which to me prove point 1

    3) yes hang time matters agree 100%. Cannot find statistics comparing this though.

    The 77 yard punt resulted in a touchback. In the same game he had a 69 yard punt (also a touchback) but was negated for a roughing the kicker penalty.

    He was also part of the team that nearly set the record for punt return yards allowed.

    I don't feel a lot of people get the true importance of special teams. That was a point when PC/JS rebuilt this team in 2010. All 3 stages need improvement. I know we are low on draft picks this year, if we don't bundle any of the 3 5th rd picks to move up, I would be all over Dickson in the 5th if he is still there. Ryan is just another piece we need to cut loose, overpaid for his performance.
