    Yes we have bigger problems, but that doesn't mean we should ignore this one

    Its a stunt is all it is. He is trying to make Kluwe into the scapegoat. Its rediculous.

    As someone said on KFAN, "Why didn't we bring any TEs to work out? Kluwe is a better Punter than Shiancoe is a TE."

    And seriously, if we're bringing in punters to work out after this, why has our answer to QB been Brooks Bollinger, Gus Frerotte and Kelly Holcomb?

    You know, the more I read about this, the more I hate Childress. Blaming one guy when 10 others failed to do their job. I'm sure Kluwe tried to do his job. But the ball doesn't always bounce the way you want it to. Childress is taking out his frustrations of being a lousy coach on his players and that's just not right.

    Why do we give 2 shits about adding punter...were just going to let the return man break all our ankles and take one back to the house anyway.
    I say put chilly back there and let him kick the ball, we should invest our money elsewhere.

    Shank has actually been playing well since Gus came in, so that is a bad argument.

    Childress should have been fired even with a win aginst the Saints.
    He was out coached all game once again, and he thinks he is pulling the wool over someones eyes by blaming the punter.
    Childress has no place in the NFL.

    The return man kills us because the ball is not being put in the correct third of the field.
    It screws up the lanes for the gunners.
    Granted, our gunners are pretty bad anyway, but it is a lot easier to improve the punting position than others.

    This is similar to the Gus argument.
    TJack wasn't the whole problem, but he was a part of it.
    Kluwe isn't the whole problem, but if he can't even punt it out of bounds, then he is a part of it.
    And if we can fix that part, why not?
