    Although early reports had Mesko being very inconsistent (was trying to remove that extra step), all recent reports are of him really booming the ball. Can anyone confirm whether he is doing this without the extra step? If so, this kid is very coachable, and will probably be a pretty special player. I think he may redefine the punter postion.

    Sounds like the Pats really like the kid to give a punter that kind of signing bonus. Let's go Zoltan, kick that ball into space, space emperor!

    Maybe you have forgotten or never saw Flash [Buster Crabbe] Gordon face off against Mesko the Merciless, Emperor of Space...:eek:

    Those were Hollywood[land] all time epics with special effects to rival Star Wars.;)

    No Jersey Selected

    You mean "Ming the Merciless", and all those model spaceships with sparklers stuck in the back. Sadly, I remember watching those in the early 60's on our black & white TV.

    My hope for him is that he is the team's punter for twenty years, and never once gets out on the field except to hold for extra points.

    A friend of mine is a Mich alum, and has season tickets...his comments were, he can crush the ball, as long as there is no pressure. If he has to kick under pressure..watch out. fwiw.

    So there's absolutely no chance he can improve from how he was in college?

    That's interesting, considering he's never had a punt blocked... even with an extra step.

    It was more along the lines of he shanks it in "pressure situations" and "when it really counts".

    Time will tell.

    Gotchya. Hope that doesn't become a problem but I still remain very optimistic about him.

    Where did I say that? I only wanted to share what I was told by someone who was much more familiar with the player then most of us.

    I thought that was what we did here, share opinions and information?

    I don't know about an extra step but I'm excited about him! Good news he's signed, if/when whatever kinks he has get ironed out he could be something special, I agree with your last statement. BB loves his punters :D:rocker:

    Re: Patriots come to terms with 'The Zoltan' 4 year deal

    PFW in Progress were talking about this last week, and I am sure they said that Mesko was punting in the 'new' style that he is being coached, so for him to still be booming some at this point is very good.

    That is excellent news, thanks for the info. This kid is definitely coachable. From what I have read, he really wasn't coached on mechanics in college. Considering how coachable he now appears, it'll be interesting to see what he will accomplish with quality NFL coaching.

    It's nice to actually have a pretty good punter, finally. Haven't had a good punter in years, not one that typically had the words "booming kicks" at least.

    Why does 'booming kicks' and 'Zoltan Mesko' work sound awesome? :)
