Sorry, but I totally disagree. I truly believe the only reason Berger was brought back was because of holding for Jeff Reed on field goals and extra points. Also, whatever happened to Schmitt that was on the PS a few weeks ago? Why wasn't he brought back? The only other question I have is if they really want a punter that is good at holding on extra points and field goal attempts why don't we sign and keep a punter on the PS? This way he can continue to practice and get more comfortable with holding on field goal and extra point attempts. Plus then you have someone if Berger struggles and we don't have to bring back Ernster again. I also don't see how Berger can be 100% after only a couple weeks. Don't forget he had 2 bad hammies when he was cut.

i don't know how old he is. Hamstring injuries can linger the older you are. There is someone on that team that can punt, right now! you best better believe that! I applaud coach for that call.

And I guarantee that if Berger still has 2 bad hamstrings this discussion will continue the next few weeks. That is the biggest reason why it only makes sense to me that we sign another punter to the PS. In case Berger part II doesn't work out.
