    What do you all think? Why did we risk losing Spach?

    They couldn't stand his pociask any longer.

    I think maybe that they thought Pociask could be better than Spach, but after seeing him for a couple of days, they changed their mind.

    Another possibility is off the field issues... from all accounts, it was a bit of a suprise that the Jets cut him. Maybe we found out why.

    As for the punter, he is on the PS, not the regular roster. I don't put a lot of weight on that signing in terms of what it might mean to Hanson this season.

    I was really hoping for some better roster moves than this... Maybe BB is just toying with the media concerning talk about Lynch and Law. He leaks that there are some pending roster moves and then announces pociask is cut.

    There IS always the "learn the Jets' playbook" theory re Pociask.

    i really dont hink bb has to rersort to that, they brought him in , saw him ,liked spach better, end of story, bb wouldnt put himself in that position because if a player told the media thats what happened, he be labled a cheat all over again, hes to smart for that

    lol, u are so right...

    and then the media would (once again) go all wild, and act as if BB is the only coach in the history of the nfl to ever do this...

    Maybe, Hanson has been booming them too far and the punt

    coverage is suffering.
