Mike he had one good game!all depends on the price. In BB I trust, but I still like to know how good a deal he gets.
edit: besides, who the hell is going to say they know punting well enough to judge that BB made a bad choice sticking with Allen? I want to see the first poster claim they know better here, the flames will be visible from orbit.
I'm not even sure he was the Most Valuable Punter that day.
If you look at the box score, Hekker had better numbers.Wasn't he overshadowed by his opposing number?
edit: or what Saints Rest said better.
Right. Isn't Hekker considered the best punter in the NFL? BB is obsessed.Also, Hekker is a great punter, so even if he did "outplay" Allen that doesn't say much about Allen's value vis-a-vis an average punter.
every time Hekker punted, Jules kept screaming for a Peter geeeThey both punted really well and the numbers are inherently situational, but as that game went on, and as I watched it later, it sure seemed like Hekker was absolutely vital for the Rams. The Pats were shutting down the Rams offense from snap 1. The Rams needed Hekker's bombs and rolls to keep the Pats from getting into field goal position. For example, Hekker's punt out of the end zone in the second was a bomb. And then the roll he got working from the end zone in the third was key for them.
Allen's were great for pinching LA deep. Hekker switched really bad fields for the Rams.
Not sure about net average but he was #16 out of 35 in simple average punt distance of those listed by football reference for 2018. That's just barely better than average. Although about half of those ahead of him kicked in domes or warm weather home sites. So, maybe that deal's a little light.was he that average that he barely received a pay raise?
I'll guess Chicago. Now that Nagy has ruined placekicking there, he'll turn his attention to destroying punters after a bad week.He'll end up somewhere by week five. He is not bad at all, and has shown he can handle high pressure punting. One ugly day from a punter that a team has internal doubts about and he is back in the league.
