Agreed - I thought Berger was at least passable. Ernster downright sucks ass.

Why waste the roster spot on a punter.
Ben could punt pretty well.....let him punt it

This also gives up option of fake punt???

They are going to probably bring in 5-6 guys. I hope they bring in Durant Brooks.
You're absolutely right.

If only they were holding tryouts last week when I was out there......he looked awful the last couple of games! Nearly worth doing a running play as we will get the same yardage!

The one downside to bringing in yet another punter is that it would also be yet another holder for FGs and PATs. Maybe we should just promote whoever the backup holder is now to be the primary holder. That would at least give Reed, Retkofsky (sp), and the holder a little more time together.

maybe they can "dress" Pitt's punter in Berger's Jersey. The kid was also a cage fighter and karate expert so he wouldn't take any crap from the special teams units of other teams.
