    I like him on kickoffs, but didn't he blow it for the 49ers once or the Redskins? I don't remember, I could be wrong, so correct me if I am.

    Personally I think Morten Anderson saved us this year. We were much better off with him than Elling or anyone else that we had, so I thank him for what he did this year, but I do agree that we should move on.

    No you're right he did blow it there. He also appeared in KC as well. He was great in college. Accuracy was good, leg was huge. Not sure what's happened to him in the pros. He was big in the XFL though. :lol:

    Maybe Cortez needed some time to mature in the league, kickers are a different breed :scratch:

    Maybe. Can't argue with the fact that he'll get in and make a hit. I've always liked that about his effort.

    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.

    Re: Darren Bennett

    This may sound crazy, but I would like to see elling get a shot at punting. He was the punter for the titans for one game this year and punted awesome. Sure it was one game, but maybe give him a shot during preseason against another young guy, and see what happens.

    We do need to get rid of these senior citizen kickers.

    I actually wanted to keep eddie johnson on our practice squad this year, to be our punter next season. He was doing pretty well early in this last offseason and he has a very strong leg. He also would have gotten to learn from a very good punter(not this year but over his career), in bennett.
