    Of course, it was me just 7 hours ago who claimed this:

    ...

    So, I have only two words:

    Brooks Barnard.

    Walter back with Pats (BB mother released from basement)

    EEI just said that the Pats have sign Ken Walter to punt and Miller has an injuried shoulder. I can't believe they couldn't find anyone better.

    Not like it's any surprise, but it's safe to say Josh Miller is injured.

    Re: Ken Walter signed, Spann released

    I suspect injury also, let the Walter adventure begin, I remember when he punted for us last time a considerable amount of time was spent talking about him and his punting... more than we should have.

    Walter signed...SPann gone prob to PSqd

    Walter is signed..per Reiss....so it seems Miller may be injured and this is insurance just in case..a good move...

    Good headline.

    What happened to that guy they had on the practice squad?

    I'd rather have Spann try a couple punts myself. I just hope Borges never gets a hold of The Polaroids Walters got stashed.

    Even enough for the Brooks Barnard era to begin and end...

    Re: Ken Walter signed, Spann released

    So...I guess Spann gets re-signed to the p.s. and they release that young punter? (Or did we get rid of him already?)

    Re: Ken Walter signed, Spann released

    Twenty yard punts tend to make you a topic of conversation.

    Other than "get rid of him" and "who did he screw to get on the team?", I don't think I had much to say.:)

    A guy we signed for a while. I think it was between Walter stints, but I'm not sure.

    Re: Ken Walter signed, Spann released

    After Walter sucked up the house in mid-2003, they cut Walter and brought in Brooks Barnard for one game (vs. Miami, snow bowl). Walter came back the next week.

    Haha, I remeber saying in the chat how bad Miller is doing, and was met with responses of, "Would you like Walter back?"

    Re: Ken Walter signed, Spann released

    Baugher's still around, but the practice squad is only at 7 guys (Spann was promoted on Sunday), so Spann will probably just be re-signed without any counter-move.

    maybe he will be friends with Ghost now.

    I'm going to re-watch the 2003 season DVD now. If I come back pissed off, you'll know why.

    Actually he has a connection to BB I believe.

    Ball boy on the Browns? Help me out posters!!

    Seriously, the only time I've considered BB playing favorites.
