Probably just salting the wounds for Cundiff.

Is something going on with our kickers I'm not aware of?

It's just for the emergency list in case the team suffers an injury in the position.

Well, Zoltan is 2nd to last in the league in gross and net average.
Although he is #3 in punts downed inside the 20.

Yeah, that's going to happen when he kicks for the team that is the best in the NFL at avoid 3 and outs. At the very least, they're at least moving the ball a little bit down the field, so poor Zoltan hasn't had the opportunity to bomb very many kicks. He definitely wishes he had the last one against the Seahawks back, though.

Mesko has punted pretty well this year. Definitely a top 10 punter in the league.

I hate Net Avg as a measurement for how good a punter is. Lechler I assume has only been as good as he's made out is as a result of punting from inside the Raider's own 30 most of his career.

Mesko is a decent pooch punter and never out kicks his coverage. Just what we want from our Punter.

Also has a case for most awesome name in the NFL.

I would guess this is largely due to a lot of our failed drives fizzling around the opponents 50-40 yard line.

Definitely agree.

When you have an awful offense and every punt is a game of "how far you can get it", it's going to give you a higher net average.

A much higher % of Mesko's kicks have been directional kicks purposefully kicked out of bounds to avoid touchbacks.

Cundiff helped us win a big playoff game last year. He's just as valuable as Sterling Moore.
