Anybody else believe we need to get a new punter? I think Gardocki is getting up there and it is time for us to move on.

Gardocki has been terrible all year. He better be done.

I thought they should have given the boot to Gardocki this year and kept that kid that was in camp his name escapes me right now. Hopefully he'll be back in camp again in July (which seems like a freaking long time off) :frown:

...although I'm glad Gardocki got his ring after all those dreadful years with the clowns.

I agree, Mike Barr is his name, He has been in camp last 2 years, If he is back this year I think he will get the job!

Gardocki should be gone and Reed ought to have some competition also !!

This is one of the quiet stories of the season because so many other important areas were painfully evident. BUT if this season turned out better Gardocki's play would have stood out.

At the time it made sense to keep him. Now. CYA

Hope it's a no brainer for the FO. He's been pathetic all year and Reed hasn't been much better.

Like others I think Gardocki time has past. And one key to fixing the special teams is letting him go. His old league just does not have it anymore. And in this game field position is everything.

Before this season even started I felt they should have taken Barr over Gardocki. Gardocki was a veteran, Barr had the bigger leg. There is no doubt in my mind Gardocki is done with the Steelers.

Mike Barr / Matt Barr ---- any relation? Or all all kickers/punters last name Barr :smile:+

Oh yeah isn't there a colquit out there too? Any relationship to our colquit from the 70's?

I think Reed probably would have played better if the field was maintained better.

A new punter and kicker are needed. It will be an interesting off-season.

Barr will be the Steelers punter next year. He almost made the team this year. The only reasons why the Steelers kept Gardocki over him was since Gardocki never had a punt blocked and he was the holder for Jeff Reed on fieldgoals/extra points.

I also wouldn't mind Jeff Reed being gone. His short kick-offs is getting old. Plus he missed some kicks at Heinz Field. Usually he is real solid kicking at Heinz. I know its a tough stadium to kick in but its his home stadium.

We need to revamp our entire special teams. Gardocki sucks, Reed wasnt dominate, and had short kickoffs, Holmes fumbled, then fumbled again, and again, and again, and again. He we dont cover kickoffs well, especially on the short kickoffs. So where dont we need help

I read somewhere that Gardocki WILL be gone, and that Reed is gonna have competition, so he better up his level of play if he wants to stay as starter.

:tt02: I can punt as good as Gardocki does... just kick it through the endzone, or kick it nice a low and give the opponent a great chance to catch on the run and run through our Not So Special Teamers... I can do it guys... just sign me to the League Minimum and I wont even ask for an extension in 4 years or a raise...:yawn: :wave:
