    When we drafted this kid I assumed he was a sure-fire A+ punter, you'd have to be to even warrant a draft pick being used on your position.

    I've not been impressed so far. Hasn't been horrible, but (correct me if I'm wrong, I'm going off what I've seen, haven't broke down the stats) hasn't been fantastic either.

    He has had 4 punts in his career!!!

    He is 6th in the league for average yardage on the punt! And has only been returned for 11 yards!

    I think he is a good punter! Get good distance and hang time, allowing the coverage to get down field!

    If there is any kicker you can complain about then its Gostkowski,He has been inconsistent,bordering on simply bad.

    I think ANYONE is better than Hanson.

    Already have complained about Gost, everyone called me crazy about that but people seem to be realizing his flaws now.

    On what basis has Mesko not impressed you? I'm skeptical of any conclusions that you'd draw off of a sample size of four, good or bad, but even beyond that. I haven't seen any reason not to be impressed.

    His flaws? He's missed three kicks. Tough stretch, but he'll pull through it.

    And from what I've seen in games, the Zoltan has looked pretty dang good. 45 yard NET average. Albeit, it's a small sample size, but impressive nonetheless.

    Stop being so pessimistic, Pessismistic Pete. Seriously, it gets annoying.

    Dude 4 punts is plenty enough to show he's not a future Hall of Famer! How many more punts do you have to see before you realize he sucks? 5?? . . . 6??!! Geeze man let it go! We can't waste any more time with Mesko! Where is Sourdough these days? Or bring back Ken Walter; we won Super Bowls with him! Problem solved. I should be running the Patriots and then we'd be getting places.

    In 2001 a guy named Tom Brady only completed 50% of his passes in his first 2 1/2 games as starting QB and had passer ratings in the 60s on average

    I don't know why we didn't can his ass early on :bricks:

    Take a look at recent Patriots draft history from the 5th round (on).

    Yes, we can all point to a very good player drafted that late. But the retention rate is terrible.

    The Pats have decided to take the guy they think is the best kicker, snapper, and punter available in three recent drafts. They are very likely to continue to have these guys on the roster for a long time.

    I have no problem with any of those picks.

    Yes, absolutely it was a complete waste of a draft pick

    After four punts, I can honestly say that Zoltan Mesko is, by far, the worst punter I have ever seen.
