Contrary to what KK and CRA would have you believe, you actually can improve your ability to catch a punt. As you practice you get more comfortable. As you get more comfortable, it becomes increasingly easier, and more natural. So yea, practice can make a difference.
Also, the guy last night was a left footed punter. Those can be tricky for anyone, let alone for young guys.
IF Philly wants to make the team, and make a lasting impression. He has to improve. It is obvious the team wants him to succeed. It is up to him to put in the time to get more comfortable.
To me, it is just plain silly to state the kid doesn't have a shot at getting better. But then again, this is the Huddle where folks will tell you anything to make themselves sound good. And to allay their own fears.
nice post. The kid has the ability.
Now if can just keep running without losing his feet.
Ginn wasn't a great returner for us.
Considering how good he was at it earlier in his career, I was honestly disappointed with him.
He was better than what we had for years, so it doesn't surprise me there are a few delusional fans thinking AZ will cut him.
Philly Brown is a rookie, and it was preseason.
I'm certainly not going to over react to it at this time.
He will get better fielding punts.
Fans think it's so easy. Even the pros have a muffed punt or two from time to time.
I'll certainly give hime the time to get better, and see how he does in regular season.
If we were going to cut players based on preseason performance, at least a quarter of our starting lineup would be cut. Including many fan favorites.
Yes! If Cam goes down our season is already done. With Webb he can scramble and make something out of nothing, while Anderson would just take the sack or throw the ball away. Webb is very similar to Cam, Anderson is not.
Anderson is a competent QB. He has a very strong, accurate arm. He also knows how to throw the ball away, so he would have less negative plays.
The team would suffer more from losing Luke. (Knock on wood).
First question is irrelevant, I just want to hear these problems from reliable sources yeah he rubbed cbs wrong but the rest I don't see happening the way it's been stated(yelling at cam,disobeying Rivera,not wanting to move to slot ect)

I have heard from reliable sources, events, issues, problems that would flat out change your opinion of 89 forever.
I still love Steve Smith, but I have moved on. The Panthers have to, more out of need.
