They signed him because he has a SB ring.

I was going to agree with you, then I had this image of 30 yd punts going straight up in the air and getting knocked down by the wind - nothing but faircatches. Maybe that's why they got him.

I don't know. Logan scares me to death on punt returns. On punts, he looks very skittish back there. He's good on KO returns though.

This will help save their defense. They will only have to play inside their own territory.

Brilliant!!

He'll be the first punt returner to actually kick negative yards.

Get ready for a terrifying array of 40 yards total of punting.

Berger averaged 41.3 yards per punt last year with a long of 61. Sepulveda this season averages 44.8 with a long of 58. That's 3.5 more yards per punt. Not too big of a difference. Also, Berger had 2 tackles; as many as Sepulveda has had in his entire career. Don't hate on Mitch Berger; he did his job last year and provided 1/53 of what was necessary to win it all.

Apparently they weren't very impressed with Berger.

Heres some highlights or lowlights

Hilarious - I am quoted for posterity.

Then the dillweeds chip in

"I won't fall in this kind of trap anymore because I read the same things about Andra Davis for example and the Browns fans were wrong. Let's see what happens on the field before pushing the panic button".

ha ha!

Yeah, that's it

Ernster was worse. FAR worse. But Berger sucked too.

They must really be desperate for a punter. I wouldn't recommend Berger even for the Browns.:rofl:

After an average starting field postion at around the Ravens own 45, who is McDaniels and co. going to bring in to handle our punting duties after Berger is shown the door Monday AM?

Berger was horrid. He was lucky that first punt wasn't blocked. His wind up and delivery, so to speak, takes way too long.

At this point, I really hope Colquitt is brought in.

Did the FNG even have a punt over 35 yards?

I hope they left Bergers old ass sitting at BWI.

I just got a phone call from the front office...they want to sign my six year-old son.

He's played one game for us and that was more than enough. I hope he falls off the plane on the way home. Etcetera.:sofunny:

I was watching the game yesterday (sorta) and heard his name - and was like what the heck !
Should be a big advantage for us next week if he is still punting for them...

Please tell me he makes it through another week. It would serve them right. What the heck happened to their original kicker?

Berger is averaging 30 yards per punt today, thank God the Donks signed him, he should actually help us today by helping the Donks loose!!!
