    I know it sounds silly but with Baugher and Malone kicking in NFL Europe, lots in camp competition and, hopefully, 20 games in regular season and playoffs - do Punters ever hit a wall with their legs ? :confused:

    Makes me wonder if they keep a kick count much like a pitch count??

    Not if they were smart, I wouldn't think. Sounds like a recipe for injury to me. :eek:

    If they're not careful where they swing it.

    I have pondered this question for a while and have concluded that, yes, their legs do get tired.

    However, considering that they are only asked to perform their task 4-5 times a game, sometime less and sometimes more, their freakin leg better not be tired. If it effects their performance, they will have a very, very long rest coming up for their legs.

    Surely they cannot. Some rugby union players kick the ball (equivalent distances) as many times in an 80 minute game as NFL punters might do in half a season, and they have to tackle/pass/run with the ball etc etc also. There's no way these guys' legs can be tired.

    I was wondering that with one leg apparently so much stronger than the other, if NFL kickers walk around in circles a lot. I'll bet if they sleep walk they don't get far.
