Bad pick of Nortman. There were still better punters like Drew Butler who went undrafted.

We chose to pick up Nortman and signed an average kicker from another league. When Minnesota found a gem in Blair Walsh in the 6th. We need to fire the scouting department along with Hurney.

The muffed punts have not even been close to being blocked... he just needs to remember the fundies of kicking and he'll be fine.

And what of Norman and Alexander, and the RBs that have been on the PS? During the pre-season, everyone was saying we had found a couple of gems in kickers judging by their performance. I think the jury is still out on Medlock, but who knew Nortman was going to shank some punts during key times in games?

There are probably some things we could fire the scouts for, but I wouldn't use Nortman and Medlock as the final determining factors.

nortman has had several flubs (what rookie hasn't?) but overall his body of work has been pretty good. no chance he's not here next year.

What if I use Nortman, Medlock and the 2011 draft (excluding Cam) as the factors to why we should fire the scouting department.

Doesn't Nortman sound like another verb for shank?

" I was using my new driver on a par 5 and totally pulled a Nortman"
