They need to improve in more than just punt rankings. That headline should read SPECIAL TEAMS! And on top of the fact that they definitely didn't play as a team for 16 games...but hey, I'm just a fan - what do I know?

gardocki more than likely wont be with the steelers next season, the punter will probably be mike barr or whatever his name is. gardocki is almost 85 yrs old, he needs to improve in the offseason or retire.

Ain't that the truth! The Steelers special teams was absolutely horrendous last year and is probably one of the main reason they didn't make the playoffs last year.

Isn't that the truth! Amazing how little we talk about that. Great article about special teams (I think it was posted today..Friday.)

I know that I think that Gardocki is in the same boat that Staley has been the last few years, except Gardocki actually participated in the games where Duce just gathered a pay check every week for being a practice dummy

They have been a weakness for a few years now. Think of the loss to the Patriots in the conference championship game. Special teams were a huge reason why they lost that game.
