I'm not sure that Baker is better than the "Canadian Dude". He was a stud in college and has done pretty damn well in Canada. It's too bad that the team that drafted him had a knee jerk reaction and cut him after one game.


Sure he is better. The fact one hasn't bounced around Canada should confirm that. Baker is just being a scapegoat for our pathetic kicking game on the board...coverage not who punted is why we sucked. So pathetic, coaches couldn't even let Baker actually use his leg.

again, I got no problem cutting him...but this move only saves us money...it doesn't help solve any problems on the field.

He didn't bounce around Canada because he sucked. He was a fuging Canadian All-Star. Baker may be being used as a scape goat, but he has definitely dropped off in productivity as well, regardless of coverage fails. Don't discount this new guy though, he's been pretty impressive everywhere he's been.

I don't care who kicks really. I do think Baker is a better pure punter than the Canadian kid but that doesn't really matter much.

Good move by Hurney....oh wait....


Baker didn't want to do kickoffs so we cut Kasay, and brought in Mare to do kickoffs, so we could keep Baker happy.

Only to cut him a season later.

Un Real.
