WHO CAN PUNT!?! Seriously Paul Ernster really needs to go. I don't think any Steeler fan can take watching him put it at mid field every single time he punts.

I didn't think they would cut him on the short week, mostly because of his holding duties but don't be surprised to see him gone as soon as tomorrow...they might just have him pack his bags at halftime

I can't take any more of watching him boom punts 25 yards and out of bounds. I would almost rather just go for it on 4th and 80 at this point

we really need to revamp special teams, it's been one of our weakness' for as long as I can remember. Randle El made it "slightly" better. Now it's just worthless again.

Coverage units have been amazing though. Tops in the league

Blocking on returns and punting does suck

Maybe Berger is healthy now?

They really should hold open tryouts even if Berger isn't healthy cause this guy keeps giving the other team incredible field position and it's not fair to the defense.

They seriously just need to cut this guy tomorrow morning no matter what. There are probably 500 rugby players who could do better than that even if they never played American football before in their lives.

I think I could punt better than Ernster, but I'd never be allowed to play

We simply can't go into the playoffs with this guy.

(playoffs? Did I say playoffs???)

Relax, we're 8-3. I don't think anyone's collapsed that badly since Todd Marinovich was in the league.

No, you didn't. Stuff that back in the bag! :chuckle:


Ernester definitely needs to do much better next week, or we might be looking into a new punter.

If Berger is healthy we'll just resign him . . .

heinz was not happy with him tonight, i don't think any of us were. i was gonna say just hike it to ben on 4th and let him throw it down the field, it would probably go farther..:doh:

Well at least this week Ernie has helped on this forum anyway. The number of Ben, Willie, Arians, insert any other Steelers player or coaches name here sucks threads have been astronomically reduced.
