If he can kickoff, it could open the possibility of getting a better kicker to replace Mare no matter if that kicker can kickoff or not.

Only this fanbase would freak out because the team didn't draft a PUNTER they wanted...

Filling a need. Upgrade over Baker. Moving on...

When you have two picks close together, always take the cheaper one first so you have to pay the other less.


Good point. The difference between a 6th and 7th rounder has to be at LEAST $37. Everyone needs to just bow down before the awesomeness of Hurneys cap magic.

We had the pick of the litter on punters. We chose Nortman, I'm cool w/it.

It didn't used to be that way..back in the day you could have a decent debate. Oh well...I feel better now.


I didn't mean the Huddle in general, just the topic of your comment.

Nortman says his experience in bad weather gives him (and team) advantage in playoff games in harsh weather conditions.


Good point, never thought of that.

Without the "the FO knows more, canned insult, canned insult" response, explain why you choose someone who isn't as good as other punters available. Genuine question. I'm not the only one posing it.


Not sure why they liked this guy better. Maybe he was bigger and they believed could get stronger. Maybe he has better hang time. Maybe he can positional punt better.

I have no idea.

I know others hate it but I am amused by your sarcasm. It seems today that if you're not totally slobbing the FO's collective knob over every pick no matter who it is, you're being a douche. I don't have a major complaint with any of our choices, and despite the fact the Huddle posts today are "agree or be ostracized," it's perfectly fine to ask questions.
