    Cowboys punter upset about not getting enough touches

    [size=12pt]Cowboys punter upset about not getting enough touches[/size]
    sportsp.com

    Dallas Cowboys punter Matt McBriar complained to quarterback Tony Romo today that he’s not getting enough touches on offense.

    “I have one of the best punting averages in the league, but I have almost the fewest punts,” said McBriar. “How does that make sense? I need the ball to maximize my production.”

    Romo says he will try to get McBriar the ball more often, but stressed that other players on the team are requesting more touches, as well. McBriar says Romo’s promise isn’t enough.

    “Football is a battle of field position. I am the premier weapon in that battle,” he said. “Terrell Owens picks up what – 15 or 16 yards? I move the ball 45 or 50. If I don’t start getting the ball more often, I’m going AWOL. I want to win. I’m not just another diva punter.”

    I hope he gets his wish. The article is from 2006. I can't believe Singer missed this one.
    Some of the other articles are gems as well.
    Guess I can trade in my onion for a pickle.
    Now that's journalism.
    What takes a quarterback to the next level is not arm strength or mobility or any of that stuff. Its the ability to play on critical downs. Manage third downs, or red zones or four-minute or two-minute situations"

    How about we trade Klewe for McBriar?
    He'll get his fair share of touches with the Vikings.
    ;D
