the true question is...is it worth a million dollars in cap room????
My thoughts? Yes, most definitely. It isn't like The Finger is some run-of-the-mill punter who are a dime a dozen. He's a proven asset to this team and I hope they can work something out to keep him on the roster.

That being said, the Steelers will do what they feel is best overall for the organization and though I wouldn't be all too happy if they let Gardocki go, I understand the reasoning behind it.

I have mixed feelings on this...Gardocki is most definitely underrated and contributed so much to our successful run last year, but a million dollars? I don't know. I'd also like to see Barr get a chance, just because I feel bad that he's at camp all the time and never makes the team. lol but keeping the best interest of the team in mind...I say wait and see what happens next year when it comes to signing the big boys then go from there

I think Chris Gardocki earns his keep and is a very good punter. But if you can save cap room anyway you can I think thats huge as well. I'm not saying we should just cut Gardocki now. But if this young kid proves to punt well during the pre-season. Then I say why not. You save some money and Gardocki isn't getting any younger. He won't be punting forever. So we will have to find a replacement sometime down the road anyway. The Cards game will be the first test for the young punter.

Well the thing is ... I know a Millions seems like alot .. but unless we are gonna go after a rookie who doesnt have much experience ... then we are only gonna save 500, 000 after we pay someone elses salary and that persons salary is gonna go up each year with an annual increase. Plus, you dont really know what you have with an unproven player which in my mind makes Gardocki worth it. He can always take a small pay cut if we needed to be under a cap that badly or do something.

like i said, If barr outperforms Gardocki this year it wont be because of a cap situation.. but because he outplayed him in camp and the Steelers feel barr would be a better alternative. But next year pending on where the salary cap is at and the what the Steelers will do as far as some of the peoplethey need to resign and what direction they are going to go will prolly help in determining Gardocki's fate.

going off your idea of trading morgan for tj duckett (who has kind of a high cap number, which is one of the drawbacks) im wondering if someone like gardocki would have to be cut to fit duckett under the cap, or give someone like ike taylor an extension?

Barr has a very strong leg and he ability to be a GREAT PUNTER. I think you might just see it happen, truthfully. Youth is taking over the entire NFL. I sorta like the idea myself if it helps us to save a more valuable position on our team. Remember Barr has been in our camp for 3 years, there has got to be a reason we keep him around.
