What was the BC punters average in that indoor game? 2 yards better. Whoopee!
Paul McCallum is last in net yards punting, not Congi. Yet, I still think Paul is a good punter as yardage is not the only criteria as often what yard line the ball goes to is a better indicator of a punters skill.
Yup, other punters work outdoors, but we we specifically talking about that game.
Do you remember when Ken Clark was our punter, he could boot the ball pretty far, but most times he would outkick the coverage, so distance should not be the only criteria for assessing a punter's skill.
comments noted - but dont think that being dead last in net punting result is not going to have negative effect on rider for rest of rider season - only salvation last week was mccallum is not good either - and he punts indoors - next to dead last - congi is kicking well but numbers say riders can use punting help - or just continue to use excuses if 500 is good enough
Why use Hughes? I have not seen him doing any punting in practice, but could be wrong.
The reality is that problems with field position can not be blamed on Congi. Have there been some punts that would have be nice if they were longer, perhaps, but I can not really recall being at a game this year and saying, darn wish we had a better punter!
