Default What is keeping Josh Miller from being a Steeler???

Mitch Berger was brutal tonight. I just don't understand why they won't sign Miller. He was on Madden's radio show and he said he can still punt, and that he would liek to come back to Pittsburgh. He held for Jeff Reed before, so that shouldn't even be an issue. Someone should start a Sign Josh Miller campaign.

Question Re: What is keeping Josh Miller from being a Steeler???

I don't know why they don't sign him......or ANYONE else for that matter. Berger continues to be one of the worst punters in the league. It's amazing that the defense hasn't given up more points considering the average field position we've been allowing over the 6 weeks. How can a professional punter kick from his own 20 yd line and struggle to get it out of his own side of the field????? And WHY don't they get someone else? I can't believe there aren't better options available in a heart beat.

They are not going to find the next HOF punter in the unemployment line in December.

Is there such a thing as a HOF punter?

Agreed - there are no undiscovered "next Ray Guy" types of punters on the unemployment line at the moment. That's why they're unemployed. Seems to me that Dallas' punter wasn't exactly booming them when he had to kick them into the wind either. I still say Ernster was a lot worse.

The reason I have heard is that because he has "X" amount of years in the NFL, he would is entitled to a large salary for a veteran through the NFPA agreement... there is no way around it, he cannot even agree to pay less...

I don't know what the amount is, but it is obviuosly larger than what the Steelers would be comfortable with.

He can't have that many more years than Berger, can he?

I don't want to hear one peep of complaint about Sepulveda next year.
