    Umm...how so?

    FG and KO are covered with Phil Dawson. The main special team players that were hurt last year are now healthy. There is and will be a influx of speed from the young players that will make the team.

    Yes TJ Logan's injury is a set back, for awhile.

    And the Coach just put a fire under the punting competition. The punting will get better and all this lamenting and rehashing of opinions over Butler's time here is a waste of effort. And is moot for the here and now.

    So not sure how you get "We are a month out from the season and ST are still a wreck. All off-season and we can't fix this problem."?

    Care to elaborate?

    Way to spin it. They are not creating "punting competition" The punter is under performing and the coach is genuinely worried. Punting was a major reason for our poor special teams play. We just lost a rookie who was expected to return kicks. What more do you need elaborated?

At least whatever grief they get will be of their own doing.
    Maybe Bruce will write another tell all book.."My Boss and his Butlers"
    The Big A era begins

    Wrong. We have 2 punters and just looked at a 3rd. There IS a punting competition and BOTH punters are underperforming.
    The question of Daryl Washington.

    Please.........
    The sunshine that you are blowing isn't even giving me a tickle.

    Punting was a major problem last year and as the cliché says this is a game of inches.

    If we had a punter this would not be a thing. We have less than a month and these game count. Punting is a part of the game and we don't have a solution yet.
    Still searching for our QBOF.

    Cool

    Not just one, but two holes in the special teams boat with a third coming?

    I can't wait.

    No spin. Just laid out the facts as it stands right now after playing 1 of 5 preseason games.

    As stated above 1 of 5 Preseason games played so still time to work out the Punting problem. But...you stated the Whole ST is still a wreck. Which is it? And if laying it out in easy to understand sentences is "blowing sunshine" then so be it.

    All this moaning and groaning over what the team did 2 years ago is water long gone under the bridge. But that past is just a convenient axe to grind by a select few Who Want an axe to grind. Who want the team to fail so they can come back and say their old badge of honor phrase, "we told you so!" Coach is a bum and so is his staff. I bet secretly some of these "nellies" still pine over the Whisenhunt days. OopS!! I went and meddled.

    Only people like you can create grand, unsupported theories as to why they were kept.

    Bottom line... you don't like Arians and everything you say stems from that.
    Time travellers are making being a fan hard for the rest of us.
