Instead of another Peyton Manning vs Tom Brady discussion lets try something new. It appears that one position where both the Patriots and the Colts have pretty much ignored getting a quality player is Punter. I guess both TD and BB figure this is a position worth ignoring. In fact the one of the few stats where the Colts and Pats trail is total punting yards. The New England Patriots are dead last 1,138 yards net, with the Colts in second to last place only punting for 1,379 yards net. In part this is because attempts are relatively infrequent. The Colts have punted the third least amount of times 42 and the Patriots have done it the least at 32 times. But that doesn't tell the whole story, the average punt of Chris Hanson is a mere 39.8 yards Hunter Smith does slightly better at 41.2 yards, but neither comes close to the monster punter Andy Lee who avgs 48.4. Lee aided by th most punts in the league (85) has put up a whopping 4,114 yards total and 3,620 net blowing away his nearest rival Dustin Colquitt with 3,437 & 2,976 respectively. Although Smith edges out Hanson at the bottom of the heap on avg total yards per punt, Hanson slightly edges out Smith in avg net yards per punt 32.8 vs 35.6, but once again neither is any where near the punting phenomena Lee at 42.6. As exciting and interesting a debate regarding Hanson and Smith would be, the bottom line is they both suck royally. Shame on both TD and BB for ignoring this position. But give Hanson's absolute suckiness one can understand why BB goes for it on 4 and short so often. Hopefully both coaches will wise up and use their first round draft pick to get a better quality punter, this is shameful.
