    I'm tired of us having Special-Ed Teams. Bennett is OK, and Anderson is OK, which is a big step up from last season. But I'm tired of the kick/punt game being at best 'OK.' We should have kept Berger. Don't even get me started about the rest of our special teams players!!

    As an Aussie living in Melbourne (where Bennett played Aussie Rules Football), I can tell you now that any elementary school kid here can punt a football 24+ yards with their WEAK LEG!

    There is no excuse for an NFL punter shanking a 24 yard punt in a playoff game!

    Add the fact that he's amongst the league's worst in average yardage, I'd say he's gotta go. If he was a kicker or a QB, he'd have been sacked long ago!

    Punters are a dime a dozen here in Australia, and there are much stronger punters here willing to play for a lot less than Bennett.

    I agree, I think we had punts within the 10 yard line and the end zone when he punted if i'm not mistaken.

    Bennett was one of the better punters in the league years back but the years are catching up with him. Same with Anderson. But at the same time it's a catch 22 when it comes to kickers. The majority of the young guys get rattled and do not have the experience, the old guys have weak legs. I say we wait and see what experienced upper echelon kickers end up on the open market and make some nice offers.
    Even babies know the difference.

    Kicker and punter Anderson and Bennett need to be let go. Both have been a hindrince.

    Draft Nugent for kickoff and FG and free up one roster spot and can Anderson and sign a punter.
    My thoughts exactly XTAP59!
